    Hi guys,

    I wonder if I will be able to untether with Spirit, preserving my 5.11.07 unlock without having to restore with a clean FW.
    My case is that I'm on 3.1.2 and unlocked, but I have only sigs saved for 3.1.3, therefore I can't restore to a previous FW.
    So will it be possible to use Spirit "over" blackra1n in 3GS new bootrom iPhone?

    Cheers.

    I asked that to comex so if I get a respose I'll post it here. But as far as I know I don't think that will work because spirit is a userland jailbreak that may require a clean restore.

    I'm thinking you need to restore, since right now your iphone doesn't boot because there are changes at too low a level. Even if you apply spirit, it doesn't touch anything lower than the userland.

    Is it possible to use the pwnage tool to create a custom firmware that won't upgrade the baseband so the blacksn0w unlock still works? And also make the firmware so it's not jailbroken and therefore spirit could be used to jailbreak untethered?

    If you restore, won't you have to download all your jailbroken things again? I have a lot of stuff from Cydia, and I don't wanna get rid of them.

    Shift click restore to 3.1.2, jailbreak with Spirit, go to Cydia and add the blackra1n.com repo. Boom, blacksn0w.

    Shift click restore to 3.1.2, what happens to all my cracked ipa's and packages installed with cydia? Do they get blanked?

    I believe so, but you still have your baseband intact.

    Ok man thanks. Will I lose everything else or not? I don't think I will, it's just all the stuff you can do with JBing right?
