    It doesnt have a 4.2.1 3gs bundle by default. You have to get it from the dev team blog and put it in yourself. However it is a very minimal one, doesnt even add cydia. It is mainly for people on old bootrom you want to go to 4.2.1 and preserve baseband.

    I added the bundle as provided by devteam but it still didnt like my ispw file.. so this option is not good for new bootrom 3gs then?

    I am having problems with the redsn0w option where it skips DFU prompts and whitescreens the iPhone. This is on osx 10.6.5 - any ideas?

    This method isnt going to help you then as you need to run redsn0w after this process. The bundle you need for pwnage tool to recognize a 4.2.1 ipsw is the one in update 3 on the dev team blog.

    I think you need to use the 4.1 bundle rather than the 4.2.1 bundle ?
