Once you browse to stock 4.2.1, it will do the exploit and check only dfu mode. Once dfu is done, run itunes : now shift + restore to 3gs custom firmware of 4.2.1.
Most of guys that PM me says it works like a charm

Easiest thing to do is download the firmware with firefox becuase then you would not need to alter the file extension as firefox will download the file as an ipsw ready for you to use.
