Hi All, i realise there are tonnes of threads from people about SHSH lately, and i have read them all, but id appreciate if anybody could answer my questions and then il be happy to shut up and explore the rest of the forum Please Register or Log in to view images My Itouch is 3.1.2 - 64 GB 1 - Last night i backed up with AutoSHSH on my PC (wndows XP), i saved a file which i had to name myself to a folder for safe keeping, after saving i renamed the file, this doesnt affect the file does it? 2 - I also opened it with note to see if i saved it correct, i didnt enter any text, or delete etc and once opened i closed straight away, this is ok? Also my file doesnt seem to have an extension of .shsh as ive seen people quote on here, the file type states 2SHSH?? Is this an error? The file sze is 68kb! 3 - as i backed up 3.1.2 should i also upgrade to 3.1.3 fw and back this up so i have two back ups or is it a waste of time? 4 - Can you back up the same OS (3.1.2.) more than once or can you only perform this task once? I ask because i tried to do it again but my Itouch refuses to go into recovery mode a second time! If all ive done above is correct then i should be set for the jailbreak! Thanks again for any help i get, much appreciated!
