Save jailbreak apps before updating Home web cam video
If your household is like mine, then there is a buzz in the air that has had everyone going crazy, and that buzz is Minecraft, a game where you collect and break apart blocks that you then use to build houses and other structures within a virtual world.
That buzz has reached a fever pitch now that Mojang has just released an update to its i OS app.
If you're too impatient to wait for the official i OS 4.2 release and have a couple hours of time to kill while your device syncs over all of its data following the restoration procedure, then you really don't have much to fear from an early update -- the last several i OS gold master releases have all been identical to the later public release, and gold master releases don't require a developer ID for installation.
Jailbreaking is a process that changes little by little with each i OS upgrade.
Updating in this fashion requires you to completely restore your i OS device, so make sure you back it up using i Tunes before you do so.
After the restore is complete, you can use i Tunes to sync over your apps, media, and data. Instead of holding down Option and clicking "Restore" in i Tunes, hold Option and click "Update," then find the i OS 4.2 file and select it.
The video depicts the jailbreak process for i OS 4.3.1 but it is identical to the process for i OS 4.3.3 (and 4.3.2, for that matter). You'll find Cydia installed on your home screen (although if you have a ton of apps you'll need to scroll through pages to find it).
Since we posted custom firmware 3.1 links for i Phone 2G/3G and i Touch and also for i Phone 3Gs and i Touch 2G , we got a lot of emails asking us how they can save games progress before they restore their devices. That will create links to all the apps you downloaded from the App Store. Open the folder corresponding to the game you want to save before a update/restore. People Picker.plist file, then it means that the game in question saves files in a path all its own.
I can't vouch for the results you'll get from Covering Web's jailbreaking procedure -- I'm too chicken to jailbreak -- but I've been running i OS 4.2 GM on my i Phone 4 since a few hours after its release and have suffered no issues.
If you have already downloaded the latest version, use Time Machine to go back and restore the previous version.
You must use the same IPA file that you downloaded from the App Store with your i Tunes account, you cannot use someone else’s backed up copy.
Current Untethered Version: i OS 4.3.3 For additional jailbreak options for other versions of i OS, please see the list at the bottom of this page.
As this guide is updated, previous versions of the guide will be archived there as well.
The jailbreaking steps are relatively straightforward, although they do require you to have retained a copy of the i OS 4.1 firmware in order for the procedure to work.
