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

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

I run iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3GS, jailbroken and all... I would like to upgrade to iOS 4.3.3, as it seems the most stable now (untethered). I checked in Cydia that I have 4.3.3 SHSH. So I just want to know how do I upgrade to 4.3.3, since iTunes only gives you iOS 5? Please let me know, thanks

I just read through that faq, my first thoughts were that I think it needs to be re written, it's not really about going up or down, it should be about 'restoring using shsh's', the ipad 2 3G info needs updating as well. I don't see anything about 'upgrading' in there as the title suggests, and not alot about bb preservation. Have a read through it and see what you think, maybe it's just me lol.

should we write something new just dedicated to 'restoring using SHSH's' and keep it in a new page like or something

I think so, it's not always about going up or down, but 'restoring using shsh's' woud cover it all I think, just need to put in there something about bb preservation/custom ipsw for those that need it

I can update that FAQ, but also keep in mind that you guys can edit it to update it whenever you want. :)

SHSH blobs are required for any 'old' version. If an unlock is necessary use PwnageTool or Sn0wbreze to build a custom firmware. If not use Redsn0w to jb. In both cases use Tiny Umbrealla + TSS server to supply the authorization.

Crikey, even that needs updating, no info on 5.0, I'd hate to think what the rest of it is like lol
