Here's the deal... I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running on iOS 4.1 firmware 06.15.00.

When I open Cydia, it shows the following SHSH: 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2.1r1, 4.3.3, 5.0.1, 6.0.1

I have never updated the iOS and now I have noticed that some apps require a fresher version.

I want to update my phone iOS and have it jailbroken. I'm not sure if this is possible.

Would someone please help me with detailed instructions on how to get this done?

Many thanks in advance

The info you need is in the header: our guide to checking your SHSH blobs and using them to upgrade/downgrade and How do I jailbreak my device on iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 6.0/6.0.1?

Download what iOS version you want to upgrade. And look at the homepage for detailed instruction. :) Good luck Dude you're lucky that you've saved all your SHSH Blobs. :)

I didn't manually save those SHSH blobs. Did Cydia saved those files automatically?

Yes. If people had to manually save them, they'd be up $*&@# creek. Also, please use the "add new comment" button unless you are actually answering the original question.

Hi I was hoping somebody would maybe able to help hopefully. I'm having problems with my 3GS, I bought the phone and it had already been restored to factory settings I think as when I turned the phone on it just showed the apple sign so I plugged in to do the activation but it just stuck on activation screen. Everytime I tried to activate it said not possible to do as server was temporarily unavailable. I think previous owner had jailbroke so could use different sim in it. Now I have original network provider sim in the phone, I took to the shop and the guy did what ever he did and managed to get it on for me, but the issue I'm having is it is still jailbroken and only on iOS 4.1 which is basically useless as cannot do anything on it. But I don't want or see why it is again jailbroken ? I just want it normal so I can update it to 6.1.3 not bothered about it being jailbroke or anything. But I don't want to plug into computer and do a restore on it for it to go back to activation screen and be stuck again if you follow ? Is there anything I can do ? Don't fancy paying £25 again if I do something wrong. Thank you very much, hope somebody can help. Thanks again, Chris.
