    How do I do this on a windows platform? I'm not savvy with much of this. How do I make a custom 4.2.1 and use it? Not sure what steps are involved.

    I downloaded redsn0w and tried to install using 1.4.2 and boot just tethered. No luck. Guys there must be someway to revert back to a working iphone??

    What do you think of me launching itunes and allow it to update to 1.4.2 with the updated baseband. Each time I launch itunes it says my phone is in recovery mode and needs to be updated. What are your thoughts? Anyone...?

    You can do that to 4.2.1 but you wont be able to unlock then.

    I'm running low on ideas. Any advice? I do not have a mac, only pc and can't seem to figure out how to get my iphone 4 back from recovery loop. I have never tried to jailbreak, just simply wanted to update to 4.2.1. Open to any and all suggestions.

    Launched itunes and tried to restore using 4.0.1, 4.1 and 4.2.1 and it still stays in the recovery loop. Am I missing something or some step?

    Without SHSH there is no going back for you. I would suggest googling for a custom 4.2.1 firmware for iPhone 4 that will preserve your baseband. You may be able to restore to that.

    I have googled with no luck. Do you know a website or have access to a custom ipsw. At this point it does not have to be 4.2.1. I'm open to any custom ipsw for the iphone 4 that would bring my phone back to fully functional.

    I would suggest just holding off and waiting for a untethered jailbreak to come out. That should be out before a new unlock is so just hold tight for now. Unless you can get access to a Mac.

    Is there any way to jailbreak without having to change your baseband? I've heard about several people getting stuck in a recovery loop because of it.

    Those are people that updated to the ipad baseband. Yes you can jailbreak just fine without doing that.

    That is not correct. I simply wanted to update my iphone to 4.2.1 without updating the baseband and got stuck in a recovery loop. I was not running an ipad baseband. I simply had 4.0.1 and baseband 1.59. I have never done an update before and wanted to get one done.

    I got stuck in the recovery loop and after 2 days, the only way I could get out of it is by doing an online update & restore via itunes which in effect updated my baseband.

    You have a iPhone 4. Your issues are totally different than someone with a 3G or 3GS. My statement was correct for those people, I didnt say it was the only way to end up in that predicament. There are actually quite a few ways someone can end up there.

    If you went ahead and updated your baseband then that was a mistake. I suggested to hold off and wait for a untethered jailbreak. That will probably be out long before a new unlock is out.

    Okay, well I have an iPhone 4. If I jailbreak the phone, because there is only an untethered jailbreak out at the moment, is it going to change my baseband?

    I want to jailbreak, but I don't want the jailbreak to affect my baseband at all. Is that impossible to do on an iPhone 4 at the current time?

    The jailbreak wont affect your baseband in any way. Only itunes will can change your baseband on a iPhone 4.
