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
