I am going to upgrade iPhone 4 (GSM) currently running iOS 4.3.3 (jailbroke) with modem firmware 4.10.01. I don't need to unlock. Can I simply Restore in iTunes or do I need to Shift+Restore using the firmware found on this site?

Hi all, i had an iphone 4 baseband: 2.10.04, Itune v 10.5.2. I'd like to upgrade 5.0.1 and follow this tutorial by; downloaded redsn0w_win_0.9.10b3 and iPhone3_3_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw. Then i had problem with the first step when i try to "restore iPhone3_3_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw" with Itune, it's said "this firmware is not compatible". Could anyone help me to solve this out? Appreciate for the next reply.

To answer some common questions: Make sure you Update/Restore with the correct iOS version! Make sure you use the same version of resn0w (redsn0w_win_0.9.10b1). Make sure you run redsn0w as admin (win vista/7) by right click-> run as admin. back you shit up, don't be an idiot. Remember, this is made simple and it's not rocket science. read the tutorial and do exactly what it says. Also Google is your friend
