Is it safe to update?

Posted September 14, 2012 at 7:20pm by Trancemaker · 3524 views
Hello. I am on a jailbreak iphone 4, on 4.2.1. bb 03.10.01, unlock with gevey sim card. I would like to know, if I can update to 5.1.1. and keep the unlock status in any way. Is anything 100% sure? I am afraid to do this and loose a working phone, but I am getting frustrated with all the apps I can't use unless I am on v5. And one more question. If I back up, and then I try with any way to update/jailbrake/unlock... can I go back to the backup no-matter what? Or are there problems? Something about bb upgrade making it imposible to go back to my bb, and therefore loose my unlock status? Many thanks in advance...

Are you using a mac or PC? What you need to do is upgrade to 5.1.1 while keeping your current 3.10.01bb.

Follow these guides depending on your OS version..

Make sure to use firmware 5.1.1 instead of 5.1 like the tutorial says. Make sure you use latest version of redsn0w as well (for ios 5.1.1)

good luck!

I bought a new jevey for 5.1 or 5.1.1 but I cant update my phone through itunes. I do the correc procedure tp preserve baseband, but I get error 1601 or 1602 frok iTunes. I've tried everything that the error help says, but no luck. So I am stuck here.

mateen thanks for your answer. Much appreciated...

But can you tell me if there are 100% sure ways to unlock while I am at 5.1.1. before I "try" to do something?? Please.

Also, can I return to the status I am now, with restore, if something goes wrong? Or will that be too late???
