    why wouldn't you want to shift update? I've did it a dozen time and it works. If you want to jailbreak 1.1.2, u will want to have to otokprep your 1.1.1 and shift update, that is the only way you can update to 1.1.2 and jailbreak

    I think you're supposed to option-click, not shift-click.

    You should have reead this and followed each step, do not deviate with your own guesses:

    there is a link there about getting back to 1.1.1 for people whi upraded by accident.

    You will have to get back to 1.1.1 activated and unlocked then use oktoprep and follow the guides I've just linked.

    Check the guides section for getting back to 1.1.1 unlocked

    If you are still struggling it would help to mention what your firmware and baseband was before you started.

    i think you guys are confusing things. you need to SHIFT UPDATE. Shift Restore will take you to a clean 1.1.2 (without preserving OctoPrep) and Update will only let you get to 1.1.3.

    but why is sayin after that u need to install oktopre before 1.1.2 when i try to jailbreak 1.1.2 on last stage please help

    you must have restored and wiped out oktoprep, thats my guess.

    The link to the guide I sent you will help you more than I can here

    From there you can link to other guides to help with going back to 1.1.1 and re doing oktoprep, just make sure this time you press the shift key before clicking update and then select the firmware you need (download it from the links within the guide) when you update using this method it preserves ocktoprep so that anysim 1.2.1u can do its job.

    I had a successful upgrade and did get this message. I just ignored it knowing I did use OkToPrep.

    If You used the updated AppSnap from it did not install oktoprep properly, this is a known issue which might get fixed later.

    You must install manually through installer while still on 1.1.1

    i do the same thing and now whenever i UPGRADE by using shift click to 1.1.2, it does that then activates and apparently oktoprep is gone. i have done this 10 times in the last day, trying to get it to work, but i cant. i get a completely clean, activated, jailbroken 1.1.1. install oktoprep under Tweaks 1.1.1. shift+click UPGRADE to 1.1.2 and then i get a clean, activated, non-jailbroken 1.1.2. and whenever i try to use the 1.1.2-jailbreak, it gives me the error that i have to install oktoprep before i upgrade to 1.1.2. i have tried this so long and i follow the instructions to the T. i have done this before many times, but i cant do it anymore. help please!
