How to fix some mysterious problems.

Well, abpout a month ago i jailbroke my ipod 4th gen with the first version of GP RC5 and it worked fine except for keyboard settings and Bluetooth dissapereing. I really dont care about that but what i do care is that RC6 will work over RC5. I heard that it was good to do a jailbreak over with a new version. What i plan to do is just follow the steps without no restore or anything, just running the program. Will it take any extra memory from my iPod? Because before it took a Gig. Waht if anything goes wrong? Does this fix any issues? Is it safe to double Jailbreak? Does it add 2 Loader Icons? Do i have to resave my ShSh Blobs? A Great answer will result in rep on thetech game if you have a account on that website. Please help i need it bad.

I had the battery drain problem with my iPhone 4 32gb 4.2.1 when I used beta 2. It seemed to be significantly better after rejailbreaking up to 5 then stayed the same on 6. However, my wife and daughters have iPhone 4's also and were jailbroken with beta 2 with NO battery issue. (they are still on beta 2 jailbreak) Both were 16gb's were the only difference. So who knows. I think you'll be ok with going to 6. :) Good Luck mang ;)

Not sure I have all your answers but you can safely jailbreak with greenpois0n over the tops of your existing jailbreak with greenpois0n to obtain the latest jailbreak exploit that you have. It fixes ibooks and I have noticed it fixing some of my battery drain issues I was having by going to the latest from beta2. There are other fixes probably but maybe someone else can post what they are.

You should NOT see an extra loader icon. I don't think that loader even returned after jailbreaking the first time and having cydia installed. It WONT have 2 loader icons and if the one does return when you rejailbreak, just simply remove it. You wont have to resave your blobs. There already saved per your device and previous jailbreaks.

Anyhow hopefully that helps.

Good Luck!

6.1 fixes the iBooks problem, and yes, you can run it over previous GP, as I have. Loader won't be installed if you already have Cydia, and you don't need to re-save your SHSH, they won't change.

EDIT: JJMAN, you type too fast! :p
