    Trying to upgrade to 5.0.1 on my jailbroken verizon iphone4 and get it jailbroken.When trying to preserve my baseband in redsn0w with the custom ipsw feature I keep getting the error "Wrong IPSW type:This option can only be used for iphone 3gs or iphone 4 ipsws." Tried several different sources for the ipsw file. Is this even necessary to do? Is their another program/ method to do it?

    Not necessary on a verizon iPhone. Simply update to 5.0.1 regular firmware then jailbreak with redsnow.

    ok well that works for me, so if I have 4.2.6 software right now and its jailbroken. I can just click update on itunes, then jailbreak?

    Yup. Do you have your 4.2.6 SHSH backed up just in case?

    If u you sn0wbreeze that preserves the baseband but that isnt too nesscessary unless you want to downgrade in the future
