Hi and thanks in advance for help!
My iPhone is 3GS with a new bootrom (359.3.2), BB 05.15.04.
I made a mistake to update via iTunes to 4.2.1, and the phone got locked (wouldn't use the unofficial sim anymore). I clicked on Restore in iTunes and got into more trouble - now it is in Recovery Mode and wouldn't allow me to use even the apps.
Is there already an untethered unlock for my phone available? If not - is there a way to get the phone back in use for apps, while I am waiting for the DevTeam to come up with the new tool?

I guess I don't have SHSH saved - got the phone sinde September, and never done anything with it (nor used any tools)...

Thanks, I checked with TinyUmbrella yesterday, and clicking on Save SHSH I saved 4 SHSHs: 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.1.
Can I now downgrade to FW 4.1 and then unlock the phone using some tools? I do not HAVE to have this 4.2.1 firmware, this was a mistake to upgrade to it. So if I can avoid doing a tethered jailbreak or changing the baseband, I would prefer so. If this is too late - which tool do I use to unlock my phone then?

they talk about some new version of (?Greenpois0n?) or some other tool from DevTeam coming out to allow a direct untethered jailbreak from 4.2.1 without having to change the baseband, is that true? in this case I would wait for it, but is there a way to kick the phone out of the current recovery mode? I cannot use the apps, nothing (this happened since I did "Restore" in iTunes).

thanks x98car. should I then wait for the untethered jailbreak for 4.2.1 3gs with new bootrom (my case) to come out? or would you recommend to upgrade the baseband to the ipad version and then jailbreak with redsn0w?
