Thread: Updating the same as restoring?

  1. #1
    Default Updating the same as restoring?
    Alright so my phones been acting a bit funny recently so i thought i'd try a restore

    I've backed all the normal stuff up using iPhoneBrowser and was just about to hit the restore button in itunes but then came across this:
    Jailbreak iPhone 3GS, 3G iOS 4.1 with Sn0wbreeze | jailbreak

    Now my question is if i update and use that method above^ will it work? and is updating to a new ios going to have the same effect as restoring? and will that jailbreak above even work? I originally used the jailbreakme.com jailbreak to do it

    Thanks =)

    I would be cautious , updating isn't the same as restoring , restoring to same firmware preserves the baseband while updating doesn't...so be careful with what you do

    Hmmm what would you reccomend that i do? I'm thinking i could just restore then update and then use the method from that link or would that not work?

    Alrght i just tried to restore to 4.0.1 but it wouldn't let me (apparently apple stopped signing or something?) and yes i am already on 4.0.1 =\

    Ok third update for some reason upon restoring it went into dfu mode and couldn't get out so now i'm on 4.1 via the itunes restore...

    is there anything that i can do?

    And now its refusing to get out of dfu mode and each time i try to restore itunes gives an error 28 the only thing prior to this i installed auto3g from cydia if it helps =\ how do i get outta this?

    If you put 4.1 on your iPhone, you just shot yourself in the foot. Sorry.
