    I think you can use Sn0wbreeze, but domt hold my word to that.

    You could try Sn0wBreeze (which isn't from the Dev Team) and the whole point of preserving your BB is so you can use UltraSn0w.

    Yes, you would use sn0wbreeze, but why do you want to upgrade to 4.3.5? It really only exists to patch security holes to stop jailbreakme. These patches are available separately through Cydia. 4.2.1 was really the last release that added any new features.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the iTunes installation install the USB device drivers needed for Redsn0w to communicate with Apple products? Without iTunes the jailbreak would never initiate.

    RedSn0w does not need iTunes to run - but does need the USB drivers as you say.

    I'm not sure, though, if Windows 7 would find the drivers and instal them without iTunes, I must admit I've never tried. Can anyone enlighten me?

    What device? What FW? Did the initial JB work? Have you been JB before?

    Yep win 7 finds the driver without the need for iTunes.

    MOst a noob to a slight learner, i am glad that we have genuises like you in the jb community.

    i do have a few qns b4 i jb my iphone 4, on 4.3.5:

    1) is there a confirmed workable downgrade to 4.3.3 or earlier? i wish to do so so that i can go to jailbreakme.com to do the simple jb.

    2) if not, is it possible to jb, and yet the existing apps on the Appstore stilll remains on the springboard?

    3) if i opt for the redsn0w 0.9.9b1 version to jb, i understand that it is tethered. my qn is: in future when the untethered method using redsn0w is available, can i switch to this new untethered version?

    Thank you very much!

    so it is possible that, when jb, the existing apps on the Appstore stilll remains on the springboard.

    how do i ensure that? thanks again!
    Actually, if you create a custom 4.3.3 firmware bundle with Sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool, I do not believe that you need your SHSH blobs saved. Please correct me if I am wrong

    You would be better off /NOT/ updating. 4.3.5 currently has /NO/ untethered jailbreak for any device and if you are on 4.2.1, you can use GreenPois0n to jailbreak.

    You need SHSH for the firmware you are restoring to even if you are restoring to custom firmware.

    I did say he can't downgrade to 4.3.3 as I asumed he'd does not have his blobd, if he does downgrading is possible.
    You do need blobs to use pwnage or sn0wbreeze to downgrade unless your device is a,ready pwned.

    Default redsn0w 0.9.9b1 for 4.3.5 works

    Since tethered is now simpler w this new 0.9.9b1, I'll do it ASAP. Kindly await my verification! Hv a great day ahead confucious.

    Ok guys, I actually ran redsn0w 0.0.9b1, on my iphone 4, 4.3.5,, and it worked.

    in fact, i actually unjb, then re-jb again.

    and it still worked.

    Kudos to Musclenerd! Great Job, you guru!

    And thanks to all experts out there. You've been a big help!!

    This was true back in the "jailbreak train" days but since the 3GS new bootrom and the limera1n exploit this no longer holds true. For example a iPhone 4 on 4.1 that has been jailbroken with a custom firmware with pwnage tool cannot go to a custom 4.3.3 unless you actually have 4.3.3 SHSH.

    You are, of course, right. I'm not with it today!
