Thread: Can I jailbreak safely?

    Default Can I jailbreak safely?
    Hi.

    I just need to know if I understand jailbreaking correctly.

    Here are my specs.

    Phone: iPhone 3GS
    Firmware/Software: 3.1.3
    Bootrom: iBoot-359.3 (aka "Old Bootrom")
    Model: MC131
    Baseband: 05.12.01
    Bootloader: 6.4
    SHSH 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0 and 4.0.1 on file with Cydia.
    PC with Windows Vista

    Now, I've jailbroken the phone by using Spirit, I have saved the SHSH blobs in Cydia and I have backed up the phone's data in iTunes 9.2.1.

    What I'm thinking of doing is putting the phone in DFU mode, reset the phone in iTunes so that it resets the phone and installs iOS 4.0.1. Can this be done or will I need to downgrade before I update to iOS 4.0.1?

    1. Can I then jailbreak it normally or is the Spirit problem still there?
    2. Can I use sn0wbreeze to jailbreak?
    3. Would you recommend a different jailbreak than sn0wbreeze?

    My main question is: If I restore the phone in iTunes, will the Spirit jailbreak be removed so that a different jailbreak can be used or would that then brick my phone?

    Any tips or help will be appreciated.

    Just shift-restore to 4.0.1 downloaded from iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download I recommend setting up as a new device. Sync your phone first thne jailbreak by visiting JailbreakMe.com

    This is all assuming you can activate the phone.
