[IF PASSING COULD A MOD PLEASE CHANGE '[DUMMIE]' TO '[DUMMIES]'. THANX] After hearing horror stories of people upgrading straight onto jailbroken firmwares and people not knowing how to upgrade, and due to the fact the 3.1 release is imminent i have taken it upon myself to create a guide for those who are troubled our technically inept Please Register or Log in to view images Step 1: The Prep 1. First we need to remove all existing traces of our jailbreak from the iTunes backup, you need to remove the following things from your filesystem (these are all things that are backed up by iTunes) (Please tell me others that i haven't included): Custom Springboard Strings Numerical Battery Custom Carriers Then backup your ipod in iTunes. Step 2: The Restore To enable us to upgrade we need to restore to a clean firmware that matches our EXISTING one. (Please do not ask for where to get these) To do this follow these instructions: 1. Put your iPod in DFU mode (iClarified's Tutorial) 2. Shift+Click restore and navigate to your CLEAN firmware 3. Wait for the update to finish Step 3: The Upgrade Once you have setup your iPod and synced it all, you now have to upgrade: 1.Plug in your iPod and click the update button (Major Software Updates (normally versions that end in .0) will charge your account so beware) 2.Wait for your iPod to be updated You have now updated! If the tools necessary to jailbreak this software version have been released please re-jailbreak if you wish. Please take note that you cannot jailbreak with a tool that is intended for your past firmware. I will be updating this thread with pictures so please bear with me.
