    Just find a preactivated custom firmware and you will be fine.

    Do you have a Mac like your profile says?

    I do have a Mac. Could you help find me one. Or give me some instructions please. I have tried cooking a custom firmware under pwange tool 4.1.3 Unlock for 4.1.2. But I get an error. I'm not really great at all the hacker talk, but I can get by most things with specific instructions.

    I've been stuck on this 4.0.1 for so long now and I'm so confused how to get off because all the hacks use Pwange tool, which doesnt seem to work with my 3GS new bootrom.

    Thanks,

    Ok so I have made a custom 4.2.1 firmware for 3GS. That's awesome thanks. So just to clarify. All I need to do is put my 3GS in DFU, and option restore custom firmware, and it will work? Even if I'm currently on "Jailbreak me" with 4.0.1. Or do I need to restore to official 4.0.1 first? Se if I get an error or not.

    Then all I need to do is Greenp0ison?

    I've read the thread but can't seem to find specific instructions for upgrading my Iphone to 4.2.1, here are my current specs from f0recast:

    Iphone 3G
    Baseband: 5.13.04
    Bootloader: 6.4
    Model: MB702
    Firmware: 4.0.2
    Already Unlocked
    Non Tethered

    Info from TinyUmbrella regarding SHSH's

    Saved SHSH's:

    Iphone3G 4.0
    Iphone3G 4.0.1
    Iphone3G 4.0.2
    Iphone3G 4.1
    Iphone3G 4.2.1
    Iphone3G 4.2b3

    I'm not sure what do they mean but just thought probably that info would be required (I paid some guy to jailbreak my phone before, that's why I'm not sure about what to do), I want to update my phone to 4.2.1 and keep my current baseband, is that possible? If so what should I do?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    You would need a custom firmware made with pwnage tool so that your baseband is preserved.

    So I would need to do what the guy above (nickippy) did to upgrade my firmware right? Another question, the main reason why I want to upgrade my phone it's because it runs kinda slow on 4.0.2, if I upgrade it would it make it any faster? Or should I downgrade? Thanks in advance.

    Ya, you would need a Mac and make a custom firmware. It will be faster on 4.2.1. 3.1.3 is the best running firmware for iPhone 3G though.

    It worked perfectly. Thanks for the help. I made a custom restore firmware and then green Pois0ned my phone. Now running unlocked with 3GS, 4.2.1. 5.13.04. Cheers mate.

    Thanks a lot for you help man, you're the best , just one last question, I need a Mac to open pwnage tools, because the extension's .DMG, but I just googled some info about it and there's different ways to open the file and have it working in Windows, do you think it would mess my Iphone if I use pwnage tools in Windows?

    Just find the custom firmware online. Running Pwnagetool on Windows to create the custom fw takes an incredibly long time.

    Ok I'm starting to freak out lol.

    So basically this are the steps I need to take:

    - Download a custom FW 4.2.1 and install
    - Use green poison

    And that's it? My phone will keep the same baseband and keep working with my current carrier? (Telcel, from Mexico)

    I'm a complete newbie and I don't want to mess anything up, thanks for understanding lol, please hang with me.

    All you need is a custom firmware with no baseband update in it. No need for greenpoison for iPhone 3G.

    Default Some clarifications
    Hello, I just want to clarify this part of the tutorial. I'm on 3gs with BB 5.12 and firmware 3.1.3. I have downloaded an activated 4.1 custom firmware and would like to proceed. I have SHSH blobs saved upto 4.2.1+ as stated on my Cydia screen relying on ultrasnow unlock.

    6) Run TSS Server.
    7) Open iTunes and set device into pwned DFU mode (PwnageTool will do it, PC users use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 for pwned DFU ONLY).
    8) Then shift (option on Mac) + restore to the custom firmware.
    9) After, the restore should be successful. You'll probably run into error 1015 or 1004, so you'll just use TinyUmbrella to exit recovery.

    So, on step #7, what actually is this pwned DFU? Is it this step?

    "Hold down the home and power button for a total of 10 seconds
    b. Let go of the power button and continue to hold the home button for 20 seconds"

    Or Jailbreak device using Greenpoison or redsnow? If I restore to custom firmware, will it be automatically jailbreak because its custom firmware?

    I hope u guys can explain this out. Thanks alot.

    If you use a custom firmware on a 3GS, depending on the boot version you might have to run greenpois0n over it to untethered the jb and install Cydia.

    And yes #7 I believe I have instructions set for you. But it being PWNED dfu you have to do the step you listed with the appropriate tool. you must set it into pwned dfu mode to avoid error 1600 when restoring.

    the step tells you which tool to use depending on what machine you run. So open the tool you need up and follow the instructions.

    Thanks for the quick reply. If only redsnow could do the pwned dfu, meaning I will get error 1600 if i use greenpoison?

    In a nutshell, to avoid the error 1600, I'm stuck at tethered JB?

    Thanks.

    Error 1600 is when you restore not jailbreak. You only use redsn0w to put it into DFU mode not jb so you can restore without error.
