iOS 5 Upgrade - Yes or No?
Hey guys I have an iPhone 3GS. iOS 4.1 & It's on on Baseband 4.1 and unlocked through the Cydia Jailbreak. I had tried restoring the phone through the OFFICIAL iOS 5 IPSW from iTunes and my phone was stuck in a bootloop that could not be fixed until I had a factory reset done by a professional. He had opened up the whole phone and reset the hardware/software on it. That was the only way to fix it after I had try to upgrade, and I had tried everything to fix it but nothing but the hard reset had worked. Now what I'm thinking was the problem was that I should have created my own Custom IPSW using PwnageTool or sn0wbreeze and then restoring with iTunes. I'd really like to use iOS 5, and since the untethered jailbreak is out I really want to update but I'm stuck here with 4.1 not knowing if I should take the risk. If my phone gets bricked again I'll have to pay another $35 to fix it and I'm flat broke. So if anyone knows what I should do here please leave a response as this is urgent. Also does anyone know of any protective cases for the 3GS? Not an otterbox cause it's like a brick, a simple case that's protective, such as the speck cases but are not as expensive. Thanks!
--- Happy New Years!
