    Default HELP!! Super confussed!

    hi, i recently got my hands on a new 3gs that has been upgraded to 4.0. It has never been unlocked and hence i don't have the SHSH blogs. I am patiently waiting for the unlock+jailbreak to release, but read today that everyone should backup their blogs irrespective of jailbreak status!

    my question is that apple has stopped signing 4.0 so should i update to 4.0.1 and then backup. I am worried if I do that I will not be able to unlock it when the ultrasn0w+Spirit jailbreak tool is released..

    help I am new at this and not sure about what to do!

    you dont have to be jailbroken or to run latest firmware to save SHSH blobs , you can save them using

    its up to you , you can update to iOS 4.0.1, it is not different that iOS 4 in terms of jailbreak & unlock

    Hey thanks!

    So just to be clear should i back up before i jailbreak or i can do that on cydia once the new jailbreak is out? I have a 3gs running 4.0 - new bootrom.

    I agree! I have owned several nokia phones and I always used to hard reset my phone after every upgrade and start fresh.

    But...sorry for being a pain...i need a dummies guide for this...first time iphone user :P

    so should I:

    1.) update to 4.0.1?
    2.) then backup by shsh blogs on tinyumbrella, as 4.0 is no longer signed by apple?
    3.) or should I wait for spirit + ultrasn0w jailbreak to release as from what i understand once you jailbreak you can backup shsh blogs on cydia?

    Thanks

    I think it's better to stay on 4.0 , you can update to 4.0.1 anytime if needed
