Thread: Selling iPod.. Please help with upgrade!!

  1. #1
    Default Selling iPod.. Please help with upgrade!!
    Currently own a 3.1.2 - 8 GB 3rd Generation iPod Touch.

    It is jailbroken via blackra1n (tethered).
    The buyer wishes for me to upgrade to 4.0.2.

    I believe he does not want it jailbroken.
    Is it possible to just restore it as is via iTunes to factory settings and have it automatically update to 4.0.2?

    If he really doesnt want it jailbroken and on 4.0.2, sell it to him as it is and tell him to simply upgrade in iTunes himself. Itll wipe out the JB.

    It would suck for you to upgrade to 4.0.2 then he backs out, then you have an unjailbreakable iPod Touch. What if someone new comes along to buy and wants it jailbroken?

    But if you have your SHSHs then i suppose its ok...unless you really dont care or you truly trust the guy...just hit the upgrade button.

    i don't have the shsh's for 3.1.2, the only shsh blobs I have are for 4.0

    which is still jailbreakable I believe.

    how long would it take to restore it? I could restore it right in front of him if he would prefer. I only want to restore it because I have information and what not I would rather not let him have access to.

    Great then restore to 4.0 you dont have to do it in front of him. It could take some time to do a restore but youre safe on 4.0.

    Just follow a guide in the guides section here on MMi for restoring with SHSHs.
