Migrating from a bricked 3gs to an iPhone 4 at 1.59.00
My 3gs bricked itself with a 1002 error (sadly) so I bought a used JB/UL iPhone 4. The 4 is currently at iOS 4.0.2 and BB 1.59.00 and I pestered the seller until he told me that he had saved hashes for 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.3., 4.3.5. (I have verified this with Cydia). My 3gs was running iOS v4.3.3 (Pwnag; ultrasn0w, 5.13.04 BB) when it died. The new 4 arrived with 4.0.2. The first thing I did was to run TinyUmbreall and both retrieve the shsh blobs from Cydia as well as save the currently available ones (only iOS 5.x's). I have not sync'd yet and have some questions before I do:
- What will happen when I sync without changing the OS version? Will I get the union of apps currently on the 4 plus those in my iTunes repository? Will running PKGbackup to restore settings work since it saved settings most recently at 4.3.3?
- I assume I should NOT Restore from Backup until I have installed a custom 4.3.3 on the 4 since the current backup was at 4.3.3 and I believe Olethros said that OSs are only upwardly compatible. I trust you can't having 4.3.3 settings on a 4.0.2 iOS is not a good idea. I'd like to do all this in steps.
- Soon I'll just upgrade to 4.3.3, (with the usual Pwnag, TU, ultrasn0w, etc.) Restore from Backup in iTunes from the backup of my 3gs from a few days ago (at 4.3.3) and restore settings with PKGbackup and should hopefully be running everything as before except on a new platform.
Will this work? Have I missed anything?
