Thread: Noob trying to Update Iphone4

  1. #1
    Default Noob trying to Update Iphone4
    Ok so, I have Version 4.2.1 on my Iphone 4 and my Cydia says SHS: IOS 4.3.3, 4.3.5 at the top. So I want to do a untethered jailbreak. So what steps can I do next to do that jailbreak?
    I haven' t updated anything since I did the initial jailbreak so it's been awhile and seems like every where i check now it's a different version. Should I update software than just dl which files to complete a untethered jailbreak?
    Thanks in advance.

    Is there a reason why ya want to update? I stayed at 4.2.1 for a while only reason i got 4.3.3 is I broke my phone and had to git another one. I would just stay with 4.2.1 and wait till iOS 5 comes out

    So there is a reason? What is that no big change in it. Instead of maybe messing something up not saying that ya would I would chill with what ya got

    Well greenpois0n is untethered, so yes.

    so can i just install greenpoisi0n since I do have Cydia through redsnow? Or would I have to remove what I have on my iphone4, if so how would. So what steps would I need to do since I do have cydia through redsnow already on my iphone4?
    Thanks

    Stay on 4.2.1. My last iPhone I had 4.0 and 4.1 and was getting two days on a charge. I had a lot of problems and updated to 4.3, and boom...I couldn't get more than 8 hrs on a charge (just texting, a few short calls, and moderate facebook and surfing, no games). I downgraded to 4.2.1 and I was getting a full day on a charge with a little left over.

    I finally got them to replace my old one (button and wifi issues...and what a pain it was to get them to replace it. Their customer service sucks.) and it's on 4.3.5. Again, I get about 8-10 hours to a charge max. The battery life on 4.3 is not good at all.

    man do I miss an untethered JB! I'm waiting for iOS5 now, although I hear the battery life isn't any better...

    I noticed my Home button on my iphone 4 is not as good as the Home button on my 3gs, it is possible Apple go cheap on Home button, just something to ponder.

    Ok so I am planning to stay on 4.2.1 , but is greenposi0n worth installing ? If so, do i have to do a system restore since I do have Cydia and winterboard or I can just go ahead and install greenposion?. Cydia says SHS: IOS 4.3.3, 4.3.5 at the top of the program.

    yes, with redsnow, and my Cydia does say SHS: IOS 4.3.3, 4.3.5 ( if this makes a difference on what to do next?)

    Just leave it alone, you would have to restore and then jailbreak with greenpoison. Not worth the hassle IMO.
