Well if you don't much care about unlocking, go ahead and upgrade to 4.2.1 and use greenpois0n to jailbreak. It might work out better for you. If you disable wallpaper and multitasking it will improve your phone's performance a good amount.

HELP ! x98car I did as you told me, to download a custom 4.2.1 ipsw without baseband update, went to itunes, shift + click on restore, installed... but now I'm getting the error message from itunes that my SIM card's not supported... what should I do now??
This were my stats before installing 4.2.1
Info from TinyUmbrella regarding SHSH's

Ok let me try that, I'll keep you updated ! thanks a lot =)
Weeeeell I'm still stuck at the emergency screen, I downloaded redsnow 0.9.6rc8 but whenever I try to select the IPSW I get the "Unable to recognize specified IPSW" error, and I'm going craaaazy and I don't know what to do now... here are my current specs now from f0recast:
Jailbreakable: YES (Always)
Unlockable: YES - (Use ultrasn0w)
Do I need a stock 4.2.1. IPSW for it to work? If the answer's yes, I will keep my current baseband right? Because I'm trying to load the custom IPSW on redsn0w.
Ok I fiiiiinally found a working ipsw for redsnow, my phone's working now, YAY!! Thanks a lot for your time x98car, u rock!

I had a successfully JB/unlocked iPhone 4 on 4.1, and used PwnageTool to create a custom firmware and upgrade to 4.2.1, retaining my baseband of 1.59. This was successful. Unfortunately, Cydia won't launch, which means I can't unlock, or really do anything.
I followed the instructions at the beginning of this thread and ran GP over it, but Loader never showed up, which means I still can't reinstall Cydia.
Any help, please?

Probably bc iPhone 4 doesn't work well with custom fitmwares. Get TinyUmbrella, start the TSS Server and shift+restore to a stock 4.2.1 firmware.TU will preserve the baseband. Then you'll probably get stuck in recovery mode. Just run greenpois0n right over it. Hold the home button all the way through the codes, don't let go till the codes are gone.

I did have cydia, it just wouldn't launch, making it worthless. Even cydia needs to run to install cydia.
I ended up installing a clean 4.1 (that's what I had SHSHs for), then generating the other SHSHs and installing a clean 4.2.1, then running GP. Now everything works great. It was a stressful day, though.

Preserve my BB
Preserve my Unlock
If I am already activated, I would not choose to Activate unless I am on AT&T, is that correct?
iPhone 3GS, new bootrom, Baseband 05.12.02, unlocked (was a Rogers phone now on Bell), activated on Bell Mobility, on iOS V3.1.3 at present
I want to go to V4.2.1, grabbed the IPSW and pwnagetool and sn0wbreeze.
I perform the JB then use either redsn0w or ultrasn0w or ? to finish?
Still a bit confused but reading tutorialsPlease consider the environment prior to printing

PwnageTool and Snowbreeze do everything. Redsn0w is not required. Ultrasn0w for the unlock if not using an official carrier.

I have a new Iphone 3GS.
It FW - 4.1
BB - 5.14.02
I am looking on for options to JB and Unlock the phone.
So for now, as far as my research says:
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
1. I can stay on 4.1 and get an unteethered JB using Limera1n/pwnage and then unlock using ultrasnow through cydia.
2. I can go to 4.2.1 but that will be teethered using redsn0w and ultrasn0w.
3. In both the cases above, I have to go to BB 6.15 and Install the Ipad FW without which I can't unlock.
4. I have no option to downgrade to 5.13
Please make corrections, in above.
And also please suggest something if there are other good methods to avoid teethered JB and unlock without installing Ipad FW.
Thanks in Advance.
