    Are you updating the BB? If yes, then use redsn0w instructions in post #2.

    I don't understand what you're asking.

    In order to jailbrake 4.2.1 the phone must either be:
    ..runing 4.2.1 now (Settings / General / About) ..... or ..
    ..be updated to 4.2.1.

    Personally, I would stay with 4.2.1. The maximum fully jailbreakable iOS is 4.3.3. There's very little difference between 4.3.3 and 4.2.1. Stay put until something really interesting comes along ... like 5.0

    Ok so use redsn0w for jailbreaking it? The guide you posted has it but the link is dead, does it matter which version I use at all?

    Decided to update huh? Lots of work for little gain?
    No problem, we don't really care. The choice is yours.

    The latest redsn0w works great for iOS 4.2.1.

    I'm getting O2 sim. Just need to know how to jailbreak it. Not updating BB as permanent and I don't think it's worth having dodgy BB.

    Ok for redsn0w it asks me for the firmware but if I'm already 4.2.1 how do I make it so I don't have to verify it? Also is there any disadvantages to using jailbreakme to jailbreak my iphone 3g on firmware 4.2.1?

    Redsnow verifies the computer 4.2.1 ipsw, not your phone. Go for it.

  14. #33
    So I just select the firmware I downloaded as it? Why does it not just check the phone's firmware? Or is there a reason it checks the firmware file?

    The phone is not jb'd -- yet. Access is limited. Select same version ipsw as just loaded.

    Ok I'll use the 4.2.1 firmware I downloaded from that guide then.

    Is 4.2.1 on the phone? Did you just load it? Or getting ready to load it? Then yes, ok

  18. #37
    4.2.1 was already on the phone. I put it in DFU mode through redsn0w steps and then it found it and started but now it's stuck at "Waiting for reboot" step. I can't see where I went wrong?

    You did nothing wrong. Try again. Change USB ports, cable, computer. If it's stock 4.2.1 you're ok.

  20. #39
    Just cancel it and retry it? Don't need to redo DFU mode as Itunes definately detected it in recovery? Is there anything I can do which will break the iphone at this stage?
