    This is my guide for how to update to the new iOS4 and jailbreak. READ EVERYTHING! FOR NOW I HAVE IPOD TOUCH 2G (MB) AND IPHONE 3GS GUIDE (MC/MB) i only have mac guide for 3GS

    1) this works even if you are on spirit 3.1.3 regardless of device
    2) you must already be jailbroken on any firmware
    3) you must be on old bootrom
    4)you must have iOS4 already on downloaded onto your desktop
    [firmwares available from here]
    5)you must have itunes 9.2 http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    6) before attempting anything connect your device to computer and let itunes back it up
    ii) for cydia apps download aptbackup and backup or write down your own sources and packages you downloaded for future reference
    iii) after restore just download aptbackup again and click restore (this will download all your cydia stuff back automatically, this will take a while) BUT I DON'T RECOMMEND YOU USE APTBACKUP (personally it kept making my iphone go to recovery mode)

    (The serial number is one way to check; if the 3rd, 4th, and 5th digits of the number are 940 or higher it more than likely has the new bootrom. If it is 939 or less you should have the old bootrom)

    4) this work for MC AND MB 3GS BUT ONLY MB FOR IPOD TOUCH 2G

    3GS
    If you are jailbroken without spirit skip step i
    i) Go to cydia->manage->sources->edit->add and add the source [LINK REMOVED - SPIRIT2PWN CONTAINS APPLE COPYRIGHT CODE] finally go to search and type in Spirit2Pwn, download and install it.
    YOU MAY NOW JAILBREAK EVEN though you are on spirit 3.1.3 MC OR MB

    1) Firstly get pwnage tool 4.01 (http://www.blogiphone.fr/PwnageTool_4.01.dmg)
    2) start pwnage tool, click expert mode then pick 3GS then the green tick
    3) pwnage tool will then browse for the firmware (wait) after it has found your firmware click on it and press the green tick
    4) you will now be taken to a page where you can customise your firmware you are about to build, double click on each one and make sure they are what you want them to be, YOU MUST CHECK SETTINGS BEFORE PROCEED
    5) after the settings are how you want them press build (this will take 5 mins around)
    6) finally open itunes 9.2 and click on your 3GS on the left pane and on the 3GS page, press shift (keyboard) and click restore at the same time, now, browse to your firmware you just made using pwnage tool (will have custom in name) and select your custom firmware and restore
    7) DONE!
    if you don't want to unlock skip the next steps
    8) to unlock simply go to cydia and download the latest ultrasnow and install

    Ipod Touch 2G

    1) restore your ipod 2g to your iOS4 firmware you downloaded (NO, I'M NOT CRAZY!)
    2) get redsn0w
    WIN http://sites.google.com/a/iphonedev.com/files/home/redsn0w_win_0.9.5b5-5.zip
    MAC http://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_mac_0.9.5b5-5.zip
    3) start redsn0w and browse to your firmware you downloaded (the one you just restored with)
    4) tick the boxes according to what you want (YES, YOU CAN HAVE MULTITASKING AND BACKGROUND) NO LAG! trust me
    5) plug in your ipod and turn if off
    6) follow the on-screen instructions for DFU mode (don't matter if you are a few seconds off)
    7) after DFU let redsn0w do its magic

    If you notice a blank white icon for Cydia with no sources. Go to the Sources panel and add http://apt.saurik.com/cydia-3.7 repo. Now restart your phone and you should see the regular standard Cydia logo with all the sources now.

    HOPE YOU HAD SUCESS! (I TRIED TO MAKE THE INSTRUCTIONS AS CLEAR AS POSSIBLE IT THE SHORTEST TIME) PLEASE DO NOT CRITICISE UNLESS YOU MADE A BETTER GUIDE, I WILL BE UPDATING THE GUIDE IF NECESSARY, IF I FORGOT ANYTHING TELL ME! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING HAPPENING TO YOUR DEVICES

    'It' is not legal. It has download links to paid firmware.
