    Did you ever figure this out? I have restored to 4.2.8 myself using backed up blobs but iTunes cannot complete the activation. So close!!

    I think the possible reason is because of the difference in baseband, when you upgraded to IOS 5, you baseband has been upgraded, therefore, it doesn't match the baseband of 4.2.8.

    That's a bummer. I am kinda new to iPhone so I did not know that. I appreciate the answer. Since I have been able to restore to 4.2.9 and 4.2.10 after running IOS 5 I just assumed baseband wouldn't be a problem with 4.2.8. Thanks again for your response.
