    I'm thinking of buying a refurb ipod 4th gen with 5.1 on it. My question is can I upgrade to 5.1.1 without having the shsh saved. Can I just upgrade using a custom firmware so I can have an untethered jailbreak because from what I read 5.1 only has a tethered. Thanks

    Only iOS 6.0 & 6.0.1 are tethered, but if the person saved the iOS 5.1.1 blobs you'll be able to get them with Redsn0w or iSHSHiT in Cydia, if they were saved when Apple was still signing them.

    If the person has it jailbroken, check on Cydia's first page at top in green for a list of all blobs available for that device. iOS 5.1 is almost the same as iOS 5.1.1. It's definitely "NOT" tethered on any iOS 5 versions only 6.0 & 6.0.1 are tethered.

    Even if no blobs are saved when u get it on iOS 5.1, u can jailbreak it untethered with Redsn0w & in Cydia use iSHSHiT to extract/download any shsh's on the device & email them to urself.

    I doubt that's their real site, I've never heard of it & they'd be up to date on the info.

    Where'd u find that website?

    So because their names are typed in does that mean its real?

    I may be wrong but I've never heard of seen that site

    There's no way to downgrade to an untethered version without the blobs? Correct.

    This is an iPod touch 4th gen right? All iPhones (except 5) & all 4th gen iPod touch are & have been full untethered jailbreak on ios 5.0.1, 5.1 & 5.1.1 for months now.

    Only get ur info from the sites I posted earlier, that site & many others are fake or not up to date.
