    Right I want to updat to iOS 4.3.4 now I realise I will loose jb functionality but that's not an issue , now I'm away from my pc and wanting to use my girlfriends but not sync , now I have devised ba plan and want to no if the methodology behind it is sound. If I click cancel when the box saying erase or transfer purchases comes up Ghent hit update will it update the io around what's installed or does I wipe and then rely on a backup to restore settings etc otherwise leaving I as a blank device

    What version of iOS do you have now? The update from 4.3.3 to 4.3.4 was simply a security fix to patch the PDF 'vulnerability' that enabled the iPad2 jail break. So, unless you're on an earlier version (than 4.3.3) there's very little reason to update iOS.

    Updating the OS does nothing to the apps or user data - though it's always wise to back up first....:D

    1) Install iOS 4.3 2) "Jailbreak" with redsn0w 0.9.6rc8, you should see a white block in de upper left corner from your iPhone, reboot it 3) get iFunBox 4) navigate to "Raw File System" -> /System/Library/CoreServices
    5) open SystemVersion.plist and remove the following lines: ReleaseType
    Beta 6) Reboot the iPhone7) Activate your iPhone with iTunes
