    Have you tried just restoring your iPhone and opting to auto-update? What's the error you get?

    I would plug into laptop or computer and open iTunes if it does not auto open. Then press "Restore". It will update and you can then re-jailbreak if you'd like, and restore from backup etc.

    Thread moved to the iPhone Jailbreak section.

    Jailbreaking 'breaks' the OTA (Over-The-Air) update. You have to connect you device to iTunes and update/restore that way.

    I didn't know that there was a jailbreak at all for 5.1.1.

    Of course you can, but it's tethered. :(

    It should be easy to restore your iPhone4. I had my phone on the tethered JB but things didn't work out well so I did a restore.

    I would wait until the untethered jailbreak.

    I usually wait for the untethered jailbreak. Having a tethered jailbreak is just not worth the hassle.

    I wonder if they release a Cydia patch for tethered users, perhaps running Redsn0w over the top?

    What do you mean? So they don't have to rejailbreak with the untethered? That would be nice.

    It's happened before, you've been able to run Redsn0w over a tethered jailbreak in the past, to make it un-tethered. Corona was also released with the last jailbreak which un-tethered previously tethered users by simply installing a .deb package from Cydia :)

    You could run Redsn0w (as if you were going to jailbreak normally) but simply deselect the, 'Install Cydia' checkbox - then boom, un-tethered.
