I am using RedSn0w 0.9.9b8 and try to save blobs on Cydia server, I got following message "Cydia Server refused blobs pulled from this device." What to do?

Ok, I am trying to upgrade my iphone 3GS 3.1.3 to 5.0 and got the instructions to save my blobs on cydia first... Does it mean that i won't be able to save them at all?

5.0 has been closed a while now. if its an old bootrom you can still go to 5.0 tho

If you have an iPhone 3Gs, there is absolutely no reason to stay on iOS 5 instead of heading to iOS 5.0.1, as an untethered jailbreak has been confirmed on older devices in that firmware version.

That means, you should be able to finely do a plain iTunes restore to iOS 5.0.1 (just hit the Restore button after a sync), and just wait for an untether if you have the new bootrom.

On the other hand, if you have the old bootrom you can jailbreak untethered with no issues at all on any firmware versions. Just use sn0wbreeze, if I recall correctly (not sure if redsn0w does it, anyone comment?)

I tried plain (?) restore in Itunes, through downloading 5.0.1 software at and restored with "Opt" and Restore. I got error message of Itunes that my decice is illegible for updates...

Do you mean I can restore my 3GS (new bootrom) just by clicking Restore in Itunes without even using any jailbreak program?
