Note: Jailbreakers and unlockers should stay away from iOS 4.1 as there is NO jailbreak for iOS 4.1 at the moment. Also, the baseband gets updated which will nullify your carrier unlock.

  1. I didn’t realize this would delete all my music and apps as well. Surely this can’t be right? Thankfully I haven’t tried it yey, I’m just going off the above comment.

    • assuming, the comment is not a troll, it doesn’t delete if updated properly (Note – it’s ‘update’ and not ‘restore’). In any case backing up on iTunes is bare minimal thing to do.

    • According to Apple, the file is meant to be used when restoring the firmware, but then people don’t really follow what Apple asks them to do, right?

  2. I have tried downloading this file a number of times now and i have followed the steps, but it keeps saying “could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible”. Help?
