Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 9 and 8.4.1 do not have jailbreaks. You can use Cydia Impactor if you need to un-jailbreak an 8.1-8.4 device without restoring.
TaiG provides an iOS 8.4 and 8.3 untethered jailbreak. Check @taig_jailbreak, @saurik, and /r/jailbreak for news and updates.

I have an iPhone 3GS which I just upgraded from 5.1.1 to 6.0. The thing is, iOS 6 SUCKS and I'd be very interested in downgrading back to 5.1.1. I have not got my blobs but it's jaibroken if that helps.

I hope someone can help me,

Got me thinking, if I am a payed developer (which I am), I have the ability to downgrade to whichever version I want for testing purposes, don't I ?

If that were true, we could all downgrade to whatever version we wanted to for $99.

Then how are developers supposed to test for previous iOS versions ?

You mean downgrade, not download right? You can't downgrade to 5.1.1 without 5.1.1 SHSH unless your 3Gs is old bootrom.

Yeah I meant downgrade lol. But, why does the dev-team's blog say that you can "always jailbreak and downgrade" the 3GS ?

As I said, only if you have 5.1.1 SHSH saved or old bootrom 3Gs. Please read carefully the devteam blog.

They mean the baseband, not the iOS version.

Oh... ok. Thanks.

Point is you cannot downgrade without SHSH if Apple isn't signing that particular iOS version.
