    Hola. I have redsnow rc8 tethered, and now redsnow rc9 untethered is out. How to upgrade??

    Do I just do rc9 and keep all my apps and settings?

    Or

    Do I restore to stock apple fw and jb it to rc9?

    Just install the untethered with redsn0w rc9 on top. There is no need to go back to stock firmware, if you are already on iOS 4.3.1. It should also keep all Cydia apps.

    Oh, that's awesome!!

    Doing it tomorrow, will report.

    My laptop is close to be left at home while I'm at work, just have to install hundred or so more apps. People just don't understand how freeing is iPad! For example today I found a new road and saved myself an hour in traffic.

    That's it, done it. Takes 2 minutes. Everything boots up on it's own. Now I have a fully functional iPad.

    Connect iPad to PC, 5 seconds
    Turn off iPad, 10 seconds
    Put iPad into DFU mode, 40 seconds
    Do jailbreak 1 minute
    Boot up, like 15 seconds
    Reboot and make sure it boots by itself, another 30 seconds
