Updating a jailbroken itouch
and what happens to the [CRACKED] apps that i downloaded?
should i just erase those jailbreak things like apps and tweaks myself? damn that's a lot of typing thanks tho When you UPDATE the jailbreak will be undone and all unofficial Apps will stop working.
Connect the device, then right click on it in the i Tunes side bar. From there, it will check for the newest available update (5.1), download it and install it.
Then put the device into DFU mode: 1) Power off the device. 5) Let go of the power button but not the home button for another 10 secs. It will detect your i Pad and inform you it is in recovery mode.
This process is only possible using a downgrade, which can be a fairly difficult operation to complete (Apple authenticates all new software installs using their own servers).
SHSH blobs are in the process of being phased out in favour of the tougher-to-beat APTicket.
If you’ve a jailbroken i Phone, i Pad or i Pod touch, and trying to update it to i OS 8 using OTA update, then you are probably seeing the “Checking for Update” screen as you can see above.More to the point, most i OS software updates modify your hardware’s baseband version, which means if you’re dependent on your jailbreak for an unlock, you will lose your unlock when you finally do upgrade.One way of potentially restoring your unlock is to save your SHSH blobs, which is what is used to authenticate your i Phone with Apple.Once i Tunes is all squared away, it’s time to turn your attention to your i OS device and follow these instructions: Step 1: Connect your i OS device to your computer using an USB cable.If you have got a jailbroken i Phone, i Pad or i Pod touch, and try to update to i OS 9 using OTA update when it is released, then you will be stuck at the “Checking for Update” screen as you can see above.
