How does Bruce T do it?

If I jump from say, a 4.x firmware to a 5.x firmware, I RESTORE......and start as a new device.  This eliminates any carry over or conflicts from the transition, especially if you want to use SPIRE to port Siri to your device.

If I have already started from a 5.x version, I simply update to the latest firmware and restore my backups from iTunes and PKGbackup via Dropbox.

BUT BEFORE I DO, I follow these commandments:

1.  Though shall ALWAYS backup device in iTunes
2.  Though shall transfer purchases from device to iTunes library.
3.  Though shall ALWAYS backup SHSH and Jailbreak tweaks and apps using PKbackup or other                    

      backup utility found in Cydia.  [You can also use Tiny Umbrella to back up your SHSH blobs.]
4.  Though shall update device to latest iOS ONLY when Jailbreak is very near.
5   Though shall sit and wait............

So ready yourself and your devices, 5.1.1 UNTETHERED JAILBREAK IS IMMINENT 

Don't forget to follow @BruceTdoesIT on Twitter for the latest nerdworthy news.....

Stay tuned....the saga continues....... I will be jailbreaking my iPhones and other devices once I test the current release on my iPad 2.........
