Restore your iphone to a previous backup in itunes would be my first thought.

How do i do it to previous backup?

Use the following steps to restore your device:
Connect your device to your computer.
Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
Select the Summary tab.
Select the Restore option.

Yeah just tried a standard restore and message comes up stating

'The iphone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build'

hmmm i dunno then. Could try resetting to factory defaults and starting again?

You know, I was so tempted to come on and say "You wouldn't get this with an Android phone", in the same way the usual iPhone fanboys seem to spoil EVERY android phone thread, but I've decided to say I hope you get it sorted out.

The price of them things and the fact that some apple "genius" at the store will probably tell you off for messing with the firmware is hard enough without someone coming on taking the pee.

Thanks! I was thinking earlier on why allow the user to have control over all this fireware s**t if its this easy to mess things up!

Right, I have got all the icons sorted but now with the latest fireware it does not recognize my network

scroll right to the first screen (where you can search). Type in whatever application you want, that u cant see and it will come up.

Did you not know that if you have a jailbroken iphone and you update the firmware all of your icons will dissapear?

Sorry what do you mean by it doesnt recognise your network?? Ur mobile network? Does it say no service or searching? Also how did u manage to get the icons back? Is it the first time uve jailbroken or was it previously jailbroken and it you downloaded apps, which disappeared when u updated the firmware?

You could try sn0wbreeze but then again if you have it all working you should just need to go to cydia and download ultrasn0w.

Its the latest firmware 4.3.3

Its strange as it shows one network but not another when putting the sim inside.

No that's the version number, scroll down and post the modem firmware.

Modem - 04.10.01

Has a unlocking solution become available for 4.3.3 already?

Also anyone know if its possible to update firmware from 4.0.1 and still keep all the jailbroken apps and settings and the data contained within the apps, i.e scores, notes, settings?

iirc it's not possible to unlock 04.10.01 via JB.

Adnan, 4.3.3 is possible on a 3gs with ipad modem firmware to unlock.

You also might be able to build a custom 4.3.3 ipsw with Sn0wbreeze that keeps your current modem firmware.

Updating an iphone4 to 4.3.3 via itunes will automatically update the modem firmware to a currently unlockable baseband.

Im not concerned about unlocking of my iphone 4 tbh, i use it on t mobile and it was supplied by t mobile. Im just concerned about all my current jailbroken apps and the data within them. Anyway of updating and keeping them intact?

Appsync



Please explain.I already have appsync 4.0 installed in cydia, which means i can manage my jailbroken as well as regular apps in itunes. If i was to download the latest firmware via itunes, wont all my jb apps dissappear? How will appsync bring back all my old apps/settings? Sorry if the questions are getting too much
