Thread: Update firmware without losing unlock/jailbreak?

    Default Update firmware without losing unlock/jailbreak?
    Hey. I already have a jailbroken/unlocked iphone, but it's using 3.0, and after updating my apps I've lost some of my favorites because they're only available with the 3.1. How do I update without losing the unlock/jailbreak?? I have the 04.26.08 firmware, I believe I originally unlock/jailbroke with ultrasn0w, my carrier is TMobile, my iPhone is the 3g. Please help! Thanks!

    You can't update without losing your jailbreak.

    Can I restore & re-jailbreak/unlock?

    Yeah you can do that. You can also backup your jailbreak apps.

    Is there a site or post with step-by-step directions you could direct me to? I don't want to mess anything up. I really appreciate it!!

    You can make or download a custom 3.1.2 firmware with pwnagetool and restore to that. That'll secure your jailbreak and keep your baseband at a version that is unlockable with ultrasn0w (which is the best unlocking tool).
