    Default iPhone 4 downgrade?
    I just got a new iPhone 4 which is already on 4.2.1 seeing as there's no unteathered jb for that at the moment, I was wondering, of course I don't have any shsh saved for it, it's new. But is there anyway I could make a custom Ipsw (sn0wbreeze) since it does what ever and leaves a prompt on the phone to use iTunes and point at the new Ipsw you make . If I could make a 4.1 with sb and would iTunes let me use that?

    No, you can't use custom firmware for iphone 4 at 4.2.1 as there is no tools to create one yet. You cannot restore to stock 4.1 nor custom firmware of 4.1 either because you don't have the required shsh blob.

    Anyone know if there's anything to this new softjailbreak and softunlock? I'm pretty sur it's a scam, but it'd be nice to know for sure guess, they make some pretty big claims but when you try to download it you have to download a game or do a survey... Anyway, probably a scam, if you're curious like me you can go to that URL, I'd like to know if someone else can get to work.

    When you say 4.1 nor, does that mean there's a difference between the redsn0w jb (that flashes the nor) and sn0wbreeze that does not?

    Any site like that is a scam.

    if u have shsh for 4.2.1b3 then u can install this firmware. if u dont have the shsh then u cant. even though if u have shsh for 4.2.1b3 then u might not be able to use it as it might need ur udid to be registered and recognized as a developer's account.

    Check with tiny umbrella if you have 4.2b3 SHSH. If not no point in trying.
