Hi,

I had an Iphone4 running ios4, which i jailbroke via jailbreakme.com

I have now backed-up everything and updated to 4.0.1, however when i revisit the jailbreakme site, it downloads, "sit tight" flashes for a split second, and then exits to my springboard!!!

Any help is much appreciated

Reinstalling the jailbreak results in the exact same, and yes im trying to install over wifi.

Im not suggesting apple has release anything, however im slightly curious if there is a process to re-jailbreak after an update!

when you update your phone it does not "format" it in anyway there for you can have files still on the phone so as i said clear the cache and cookies this should fix it for you

best thing is to just put it in dfu mode and restore. give it another bash. that way everythings cleared. just on the off chance your phone doesnt drop out the wifi signal just incase it loses connection.

Clearing cache and cookies is still resulting in the same issue. Guess i will have to restore!

I thought the pdf exploit that exists in 4.0 that allowed the jailbreak was patched for 4.0.1??

I swear thats what I read on engadget?!?

Nope deffo still working on 4.0.1 on an iphone4 here.It maybe that you read about the warning that u can install in cydia called PDF loading warner which just warns you for security reasons when a PDF tries to use the exploit which jailbreakme uses.

Ive been looking around on google, and came across that suggestion already with no luck.

The weird thing is that all apps i have on their from jailbreaking before the update are still present, and still work! Im thinking that perhaps the phone is still jailbroken, but certain apps i.e. cydia terminal etc are missing?!

back up all your apps, music,contacts and stuff.

do a factory reset in settings on phone.

then in itunes do a restore..

restore as a new phone when you get the option..

re boot phone after its done..

in safari " www.jailbreakeme.com"

re boot,

then in itunes put all your stuff back..

if u do end up restoring m8 dont update via itunes as u will update to 4.0.2 download the ipa from Here

and when in itunes hit shift and restore and browse to where the file is and load that file, have u saved a shsh file ?
