    Neil..... You need a stock 3GS 4.2.1 firmware to start off. Maybe your download was bad.

    Get it from this link:

    ^Neil ..... no options are required .... maybe 1.

    Do you have an 'official' Apple supported carrier SIM?

    If yes ... good. Just hit the arrow and let it build the default

    If no, then select activate (Hactivate) ... then the arrow.

    Error 21 usually means you did not get the iPhone into DFU mode.
    iTunes Errors - The iPhone Wiki

    Go back into Snowbreeze and select DFU mode only. Follow the sequence very carefully. Make sure snowbreeze said
    'Success'

    1 more thing? Are you using the latest iTunes?

    Also, snowbreeze 2.2.1 was just released (about 10 min ago). You might try this latest version.

    x98car .... Now that Neil has a custom firmware to load, do you believe Neil would have more success getting into pwned DFU mode with redsn0w? Or are we looking at a different issue?

    Just thinking. Redsn0w is your expertise ... well everything is (haha).

    Neil ... if you have the iTunes logo ... you're NOT in DFU mode. Do it all again and this time ... follow the Snowbreeze DFU mode VERY CAREFULLY. The iPhone screen should turn black (off). That confirms you made it into DFU mode correctly. After entering DFU mode, you start the shift/click/restore process with iTunes.

    Ya, redsnow 0.9.6rc8 is definitely more reliable at putting a device into pwned dfu than snowbreeze or ireb.

    You dont need another custom firmware. Just do this:
    Download redsnow 0.9.6rc8: https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1

    Run redsnow as administrator, browse for 4.2.1 REGULAR firmware.
    Click next and choose the option to enter pwned dfu.
    Follow the instructions to enter dfu
    You should get a message saying successfully entered pwned dfu.
    Once there, open itunes and shift restore to the custom firmware you made.

    please please please

    x98car, i open rs as admin,browse to the stock 4.2.1 then it ask me if its a newer fixed model, i have no way of checking now because i can't get to setting to do it any more idea?

    or it doesn't matter because i'll be pointing to the custom fw i've created

    to determin if its new or older, goes by the serial # but there is no way i can do that now *Caution: if you have a newer model and you don't correctly identify it here you will likely need to do a full official restore to fix the mistake losing any unsynced data

    Maybe we should take a different route... Neil, try downloading f0recast from ih8sn0w.com and see if you have bootloader 5.8. If you do, we can go from there. If not, we will once again take a different route.

    Edit: nvm scratch that. Won't support 4.2.1.

    You should search for a custom 4.2.1 firmware made by pwnagetool online. I'm figuring sn0wbreeze isn't liking the iPhone 3G.
