    Tinyumbrella has several 4.x shshblobs up to 4.2.1 and 4.3 So what do I do now. I can't seem to get these saved to my local computer? Do they just live in tinyumbrella and are these used in pwnage ?

    I assume you have a 3GS right? Just use tiny umbrella, save your SHSH, then start the TSS server and shift/option restore to a 4.2.1 firmware. Once there you can use greenpoison rc6.1 to jailbreak. If for whatever reason you want to keep the ability to unlock (not that you have to since you are on ATT) then use pwnage tool or snowbreeze to make a custom 4.2.1 firmware and restore to that.

    Here's my two cents, I think you should pwnage tool (Mac) sn0wbreeze(window) to create an custom fw update to 4.2.1 and preserve your bb to unlock, do you know how many people kill to have unlock ability? But if you just update to 4.2.1 you will Update your bb as well

    You need d/l pwnage 4.2 and 4.2.1 stock fw to create cfw to preserve your bb just in case down the road you wanna sell your phone you get more money for because it's unlock!!

    The pwnage tool and the 4.2.1 fw needs to match up inorder for it to work. Just re downloan both files and start anew

    ^Are you 'clicking' on the correct image?

    It should be the first image on the left.

    Open pwnage and browse to the stock fw 4.2.1 why do u already have custom fw 4.2.1? After all that's what you are trying to create!!

    Do you have 3GS or 3G?

    No, do not upgrade to 4.3!! If you are in dfu mode and iTunes is open, cfw 4.2.1is created then you are ready to restore..... iTunes should said you are in restore mode, r u using a Mac? If so then you would press control and click on restore!! Please check and besure it's control in window it's shift/restore I'm not too sure with Mac next screen you need to point to the new cfw you've just created and iTunes would restore it and preserve youre bb for unlock

    Please sit tight, do not update to 4.3 you will lose your unlock!! I will look up which key to use on a Mac

    Thanks a bunch it's the alt/option key on mac seems to be working fine I chose my cfw and it's doing it's thing

  14. #694
    Do you see a option key on your key board? You must hold your "Option" key and click on restore and it will give you a chance to navigate to your cfw . Select cfw iOS 4.2.1 file created using pwnagetool and let iTunes does the rest of the work

    Whew, I was a little bit worrie there, ok then you should fine!!

    once its j/b go to setting, general, about, and check if youre at 4.2.1 and your old bb. if all is well and you want to unlock then open cydia search, type ultrasn0w, install, confirm and cydia will load up ultrasn0w to unlock close cydia and reboot iphone and thats it!!

    Do u have an official sim card to activate? When you created the fw, did you check hacktivate? Or not? Did you unlock with ultrasn0w?

  18. #697
    I did not get a choice to hackivate I am on ATT I have not unlocked with ultrasnow sim is what was always in the phone I ve had this phone since it first came out 3gs

  19. #698
    From what you are telling me it when well you have 4.2.1 and maintain your old bb. Now I just need to know what options did you selected doing the setup of creating the fw.

  20. #699
    It didn't seem to give me any options other than to save my cfw. I did sync in itunes to put music contacts etc back on my phone after the restore to 4.2.1

  21. #700
    Ok, no hacktivate, have AT&T sim, so you do not need unlock at this time. Try to reset the phone in setting and reboot.
