    You'll need to see SHSHs for 4.0.x or 4.1 to get to whatever your desired firmware is. If you don't have them, you can take your device to 4.2.1, it just might be tethered. If you have the old bootrom it won't be tethered.

    We can help you determine the right path for you to take if you let us know if you need to unlock. Meaning you need to use another carrier besides the one your phone is locked to.

    My advice would be to go to 4.0.1 using tiny umbrella, guide here: http://modmyi.com/forums/general/725...e-restore.html

    You can use jailbreakme.com or limerain to jailbreak. Then you can install ultrasnow from cydia to unlock.

    I read the link but dont get it its says "This guide is for people wanting to use tiny umbrella to restore to firmwares Apple is no longer signing" I want to update the firmware? Or did I missunderstand the link?

    You will be restoring and updating at the same time. Without tiny umbrella you wont be able to do it.

    Don't allow others to tell you What you Can and What you can't Do. Live that's your only option.
