If you're currently jailbroken on an older firmware version and want to update, it can sometimes be a bit trickier than just restoring in i Tunes and backing up.
In most cases, it's always best to start with a clean slate and not restore from a jailbroken backup (with a few exceptions).
Whenever you are upgrading to a newer firmware version, always start fresh if you can.
Re-jailbreaking is definitely not the easiest process in the world but a clean start is always best.
I've found bad jailbreak bits can come over when restoring from a previously jailbroken device.
So doing it right the first time can save you a lot of headaches in the long run.If you recently used Limera1n or Green Pois0n to jailbreak your i OS device, and want to make sure that i Tunes doesn’t automatically update your device’s firmware whenever the next update is released by Apple, then here is a quick fix to prevent you from accidentally updating your i Phone/i Pod/i Pad.In order to prevent i Tunes from downloading and installing the firmware update you can use the script below.Once i OS 7.1 is installed, users cannot jailbreak or restore to an earlier version of i OS.Jailbreaking your i Phone or i Pad is a risky process that we can't unreservedly recommend, but it remains popular among those who wish to install unofficial apps and tweaks on their smartphone or tablet via the Cydia marketplace.After jailbreaking with Tai G, tweaks and customizations must be manually reinstalled using Cydia.
