    Greenpois0n and limera1n don't create firmwares to restore to.

    You're looking for Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool

    What's the difference between creating a custom IPSW and just jailbreaking it with GP or LR?

    One you have to restore to and the other you don't. Biggest plus of custom firmware is for unlockers since it preserves baseband.

    It's much easier just to jb it with a tool than restore to a custom firmware if you don't need to unlock. Saves you the trouble of doing a restore when you could just run the jb where your phone is (assuming you're not needing to downgrade or upgrade).

    I was able to keep the baseband through TinyUmbrella for 4.1 when upgrading from 4.0.2. Is the same possible for other firmwares?

    With iPhone 4 yes it is possible. With other devices no, pwnage tool and snowbreeze are the only ways to preserve baseband.

    Yes, you may also do that for iPhone for to 4.2.1. But do not try for 4.3 as TU sometimes takes time to update for that feature.

    I'm not sure I know what you're talking about? It's been a while. And there are many guides.

    Hi there!

    Successfully upgraded my iPhone 3G from 3.1 (bb:5.11.07) to 4.2.1 (bb:5.11.07)!

    BIG THANKS TO I.ANNIE, and everyone else behind the supporting jb and unlocking softwares!

    Request if I.ANNIE could add this to his first post, I have upgraded to 4.2.1 by using his steps from Step 6 for the ON 3.1 (baseband below 5.13.x) method.

    I downloaded the stock iOS 4.2.1 and then created my own custom fw with SNOWBREEZE 2.2.1 - this works perfectly well on WINDOWS 7!
    (Steps are very similar as to what I.ANNIE described for using Pwnage tool for Mac, but i followed this site:
    Create Custom iOS 4.2.1 Firmware and Jailbreak iPhone Using Snowbreeze 2.2 [How to] | iTechMax
    Here, remember to not select the "multitasking,wallpaper, and other features, only tick the activate phone option)

    From the step 6, its all same.
    just to clear a doubt if someone gets (i did!) is that in Redsn0w when u run it and it asks for the ipsw, you should give it the STOCK ipsw, not the custom ipsw. if you give it the custom fw, it will say "ipsw not recognised".

    Didnt get the recovery mode reboot loop error or the Error 1015/1004 at all.

    After this, installed Ultrasnow and its gone superb!

    THANKS A LOT!

    A brief read through does not scan any obvious faults. It's a very good guide but I have not verified everything.
    My objections to Sn0wbreeze being treated the same as pwnage still stand - although things have changed.
    I always said iH8 was very clever but had a lot to learn.
    He has learned a lot.
    Sn0wbreeze isn't perfect, it is a lot better than it was. I will not recommend it.
    But I will say that I no longer think it the piece of sh!t it was.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Default Help with jailbreaking
    I'm interested in trying to upgrade my iphone to a newer OS version. I am currently running 3.0 with modem firmware 04.26.08. I am Mac OSX the phone is currently Jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.8 I've been doing some reading and find myself confused. I tried using pwnage to create a custom firmware but it keeps telling me I don't have the correct restore.ipsw. I have downloaded several and none seem to work. I'm sure the problem lies with me but any help would be appreciated. Thanks Marcxs

    What version of pwnage tool are you using?
    Also do you know what shsh you have and are you unlocked or on official carrier?

  23. #679
    pwnage 4.2/ ATT carrier/ Not sure if it's unlocked or not? When I ran redsn0w way back when I thought I had suarik/cydia save my shsh. On my cydia home page it has SHSH: ios 3.1,3.1.2,etc up to 4.2.1

    Download TinyUmbrella (The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella), connect your device and select SAVE ALL.

    Note: ALL 4.0+ firmware versions for ALL iDevices require an SHSH. 2G/3G phones can load ANY 3.x firmware without SHSH's.

    Note2: PwnageTool 4.2 IS the correct version for creating a custom 4.2.1 firmware. Regardless of your carrier you should use a custom firmware build because it prevents your baseband (modem firmware) from being updated -- therefore ultrasn0w can unlock for non-official carriers.

    Note3: IF TinyUmbrella shows you don't have 4.x SHSH blobs, you have 2 choices:
    1. Stay at 3.x ..... (any 3.x version )
    2. Wait for the official 4.3 jb tool (then build a custom firmware)
