I tried using snowbreeze a couple time to make a 4.2.1 custom firmware but it would never recognize the firmware i haave tried different ones and it wont recognize any of them. My phone is at the connect to itunes stage. I have tried the TU method, greenpoison method. I am stuck, please give saged advise

    On windows you need to use snowbreeze, but you need the correct version of snowbreeze if you want to make a custom 4.2.1.

    Let me google that for you

    Yes, just make sure you are entering pwned DFU first before restoring to a custom firmware.

    Something is wrong with your hosts file then. Try rebooting the computer, or even better try another computer.

    I have a iPh4 on 4.2.8 and jailbroken via sn0wbreeze (win)
    Ive been using it for about 2 months with out issue.
    Until now, my device has become very flaky, freezing, lockingup, respinging itself at will.
    I am sure its something that I installed and or either its a tweak or 2 apps arent playing nice together.

    I tried to restore (shift, restore) via iTunes and use the snowbreeze file that it created but I keep getting a 3194 error.
    I thought that maybe it was that I was not getting into the DFU mode correctly so I used iREB to get into the mode.
    I still get the 3194 error.
    Ive rebooted my computer but no change.

    Well Ive been reading up on Tiny Umbrella and now find my device is stuck at the apple screen, meaning its not booting up.
    So I decided to plug it in and start Tiny Umbrella.

    I used iREB-r4 and got my device to reboot.
    Tiny Umbrella it shows 3 SHSs as saved (5 3 of them say 5.1-3, not sure why I didn't update to 5).
    So I chose the 4.2.8 SHSH, then turned on TSS Server plugged into iTunes and shift restore and chose the Sn0wbreeze 4.2.8 (which is the version I have on my device at this time.
    iTunes returned me a error message 21 and said it could not restore my device.

    Now what needs to be done am I missing something?

    Maybe I should just update to 4.2.10 and be done with it, but I would like to have my device jailbroken.

    You need to use redsnow to enter pwned DFU before you can restore to a custom firmware. Otherwise you will get a error 21 or 16XX.

    Hi Simon,

    Here is the issue,
    I have a 3gs, i have shsh for 4.1 only. Iphone was on 4.3.5 with latest bb on it. I used tinyumbrella (latest version) to downgrade to 4.1. In the end itunes gave an error code "1015" which is normal right. I could not get it out of recovery mode. I tried exit recovery button did not work. I tried jb with certain redsn0w did not work. I dont know what to do. Please help.

    Make a custom 4.1 firmware with pwnage tool or snowbreeze and restore to that.

    Thanks for the reply. After writing this post, i tried couple more times and finally i was able to restore 4.1. The issue was when i get error 1015 I was trying to use redsn0wrc12 and during the process it was saying no succesuful firmware downloeded.

    I figured tiny umbrella was still runnig with tss on. I think that was the issue. I turn it off everything and tried to jb again, as a result i got it.

    Thank you...
