If you have used tiny umbrella and dont require unlock then do this: open tiny umbrella, click on advanced. Deselect the box that says set hosts to cydia on exit. Then close tiny umbrella and try restoring to 4.2.1 again.

Just jailbroke my iPad with GP b3!! The newest release was rather painless. Thanks to all those that gave up advice on this thread and obvi much respect to the chronic dev team. They've made me very very happy
Quick question: Can I delete the loader once I have cydia installed and working fine? Thanks!

A question: I have an Iphone 3GS, 5.13.04 (old bootrom), jailbroken and unlocked - using it on Tmobile. I would like to update to 4.2.1. Can I update to 4.2.1 using Itunes and then jailbreak and unlock? I can see there is a new jailbreak available, but I don't know if I can unlock after. If so, what programs to use?
Thanks for you help - appreciate the community very much.

Maybe a dumb question but still running 3.2.1, do I un-jailbreak it and update to 4.2.1 then run this? Was just about to update to 4.0 that I recently found on here.

Pkgbackup and Exchange
Can I direct Pkgbackup to the backup somehow or copy the backup somewhere that the program will see it?
I ask you because if you don't know or can't tell me where to look, no one can.
Edit: Duh, there's a refresh button in the bottom left hand corner. Hope this helps someone else.

After I spend fews hours trying fix my iP4, this morning I find the soluction for code 1013 at Redmond Pie web site:
This bug has apparently been reported to Apple but if you don’t fancy waiting for an official fix, you can follow this guide to try and successfully update your iOS device to 4.2.1. Before doing so, you may also like to try and restore using a different computer.
Warning Note: This will result in your iPhone 4 baseband being upgraded to the latest version.
How to Fix Error Code 1013:
Mac OS X:
Step 1. On your Mac, go to your “Applications” folder.
Step 2. Now navigate to the “Utilities” folder.
Step 3. Launch "Terminal".
Step 4. Type "sudo nano /etc/hosts" (without quotes) and hit return.
Step 5. Enter your password
Step 6. Use the down arrow key to find the “gs.apple.com” entries. Once the cursor is in front, make sure you comment out the line(s) by entering “#” in front of the text.
Step 7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O.
Step 8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X.
Step 9. Restore your iDevice.
Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad
Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
Step 5. In "files of type:" select all documents
Step 6. Open "hosts"
Step 7. Delete all line that has "gs.apple.com" or something like that
Step 8. Hit Save
Step 9. Restore your device
Thanks to our friends of MMI for the help you are Number One

Cydia is slow as shxt! Right now!
02-08-2011, 02:18 AM #919Fixed all well
1st 5-7 attempts with GP failed. No JB. NO Loader after following instructions ... I thought.
2nd round success. Followed instructions but this time held the home button right through the process until reboot. Got the unix code running through etc etc reboot great laoder installed.
Very important to hold that Home button down throughout the procees to reboot.
OK problem 1 was couldnt SSH into the phone.
Get the same type of message with CyberDuck, Fugu and Terminal.
Keeps telling me closed by host
Fugu = ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
do the whole process again after realising that I had run Cydia too quickly after accepting the essential upgrades and it hadn't finished downloading SSL and so SSH wouldn't work.
A small pitfall of impatience.
Apt backup worked a treat although it took an hour but I guess all the servers were overloaded and getting belted with all the jailbreakers relaoding all their apps
All in all probaly not the easiest jaikbreak I have done but it works and there are no probs so far except that occasionally the status bar dissappears but it returns as soon as I open an app or lock the phone.
Greenpois0n works fine just make sure you hold down that home button until your phone reboots.
Oh BTW if you are getting error 1013 you must edit the "hosts" basically I just deleted both the ip addresses and all was well.
If you get the "connect to itunes" on the phone after jailbreak just quit iTunes and then run Umbrella and kick out of recovery.

Iphone 3GS. I read the forum, backed up with PKGBACKUP, restored to 4.2.1, downloaded Greenpoison, reinstalled cydia, ran PKGBACKUP. My phone was perfectly jailbroken first try, and I didn't miss a play of the Super Bowl. Appreciate the reference material on this forum.
