    recently updated this phone 3g from 4.0.1 to 4.2.1 and had a battery drain and system hangup... so i ended up restoring it back to 3.1.3 but with an ipad baseband without saving the shsh.

    1. as the title goes, i need some more help with the steps on how to make my wife's iphone root directory to have more space. i believe this includes the jailbreak, right?

    2. unlocking will be no problem.

    3. how to rejailbreak again to 4.2.1 and have it still unlocked.

    attached is the current details of the phone. thanks.

    Windows or a mac? If windows you can use ireb an snowbreeze, on a mac pwnage tool, to create a custom ipsw which will allow you to set the size of your root partition. You need a to be previously jailbroken for either to work which wont be an issue on a 3g. You can use redsnow to jb 3.1.3 and then do the custom firmware after to get you up to 4.2.1 since you already have the ipad baseband you will be able to unlock with ultrasnow.

    Yes, once you have cooked your firmware to get a custom ipsw and entered dfu you alt restore in itunes and choose the custom ipsw you just made with pwnage tool.

    i did the (option) alt-restore but the FW cannot be recognized by itunes because of incompatibility

    and if,

    restore only, it will restore to factory settings and update.

    so, i followed the steps on this link:

    How to Update iPhone 3GS/3G Baseband to 06.15.00 with PwnageTool 4.1.3 | iPhoneHeat

    and i successfully made a custom fw of 4.2.1 with ipad fw.

    i then option-restore on itunes using the custom fw...

    after 10 minutes...

    error 1015 on itunes

    now on itunes-usb connect (recovery mode)...

    i tried recboot (mac/windows) and/or tinyumbrella (windows) to kick it out of recovery but i have a loop start-up only. what did i do wrong?

    =(

    Download an use ireb from ih8sn0w.com and snowbreeze, just make a 4.2.1 firmware from 3g fw without the ipad since you already have 6.15 the 1015 is due ti the baseband incompatibility.

    @Captinsmooth

    when you said "just make a 4.2.1 firmware from 3g fw without the ipad since you already have 6.15 the 1015", it means from the ipad 3.2.2 and not the 4.2.1 right?

    This is because 4.2.1 cannot be recognized by sn0wbreeze 2.1

    sn0wbreeze created the ipad custom fw and i tried shift-restoe on itunes,, wrong firmware...

    4.2.1 may not have support yet sorry I should of told you to use 4.1 fw for your phone. No you don't need the iPad fw.

    The solution i gave you is correct, I also posted links for you to read this info yourself so you would understand it, but every time you come back with a question that shows you didn't read anything. It can be a pain to do this sometimes especially when you add in unlocking with a ipad baseband. With that being said, Sorry I wasn't able to respond to you yesterday I have full time job, it's also unfortunate that no one picked up where I left off. But it doesn't make it ok to come back and blame me for the issues with your phone. Im sure you are completely capable of searching through this forum finding the answers yourself, just like I had to for the past year. Do you think this info just comes out of nowhere?

    So please be a bit more considerate of someone that is helping you for free out of the kindness of their heart.


    You need to get your phone back into dfu mode and try again when it completes and errors out at 1015 use tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery mode. Snowbreeze can be a pain sometimes.
