Hi Jaxov, I have a jailbroken and unlocked i Phone 3GS with old bootrom. Asked by: Jude from Montgomery City, Missouri Hello Jude!
Can I update to i OS 5 when it becomes available publicly and then jailbreak it without losing the unlock? Yes, you will be able to jailbreak and possibly unlock your i Phone 3GS using the updated version of Ultrasn0w – if the i Phone Dev-Team released the revamped version of their carrier unlocking tool to unlock i Phones on i OS 5 firmware.
However, you should be noted that updating your i Phone 3GS to the stock i Phone firmware will get you in trouble.
If you have a lot of photos and they are taking up a lot of space, then you can remove the pictures from Camera Roll and simply copy/download them all back from Photo Stream to Camera Roll after the update. Of course if there’s not enough space because your apps are taking up to much space, then those apps will have to be un-sync with i Tunes.
Around 1 to 1.5 GB is reserved on all devices to store the stock apps and OS.
When you update through your device, the i OS 6 software is downloaded to your device taking up some space (it does get removed however when your device successfully updates through).
The amount of space taken up by i OS 5 and i OS 6 isn’t that much different.
