How to fix some mysterious problems.


I have jailbroken my phone which was running ios 6.1 so that I could use Pirni along with Backgrounder but unfortunately Backgrounder can not be used on ios 6.

I can't find any other alternative method of making Pirni run in the background while I perform network activity functions so I need to use Backgrounder. Does this mean I need to downgrade? If so, is it actually possible? Baring in mind this was my first jailbreak so have no blobs.

check for SHSH with redsn0w-extras- shah- query: whatever it lists, you can downgrade to. (assuming this is the iphone 4)

Thanks, I will give that a try.

If you did not save SHSH blobs, then no you can't downgrade, especially if you are on an iPhone 5. Apple is no longer signing anything before 6.1. Be patient with the apps as the developers may update your apps.

Is there a way to get blobs off other people that may have saved ios 5?
