    Was hoping to see a simple chart like this and it may be somewhere, but could not find any so did some research - think I got it right - didn't look below 4.1 since that's where I began to jb... latest versions only are listed:

    sn0wbreeze 2.1 [For 4.1]
    sn0wbreeze 2.2.1 [For 4.2.1]
    sn0wbreeze 2.5.1 [For 4.3.1]
    sn0wbreeze 2.6.1 [For 4.2.7/4.3.2]
    sn0wbreeze 2.7.3 [For 4.2.8/4.3.3]

    redsn0w 0.9.6 rc8 [For 4.1 - 4.2.1]
    redsn0w 0.9.6 rc12 [For 4.3.1]
    redsn0w 0.9.6 rc14 [For 4.3.2]
    redsn0w 0.9.6 rc16 [For 4.3.3]

    my question as to whether the latest redsn0w and/or sn0wbreeze are backward compatible was never answered so I tried to find out and seems like maybe not - never got a definite reply. it was also a little confusing to look on my hard drive and see all these versions with no reference as to the ipsw version they were compatible with so I did my best to research the issue so I can organize my drive using ipsw versions as folder names.

    yes, sn0wbreeze will build a custom ipsw that will preserve the baseband. But, redsn0w can do some useful things even if using the custom firmware made with sn0wbreeze, like put device into pwned dfu mode before shift restoring with itunes. it can boot "tethered only" when/if needed. it can deactivate a hacktivated iphone so you can use SAM to fake the official activation. depends on what one needs to be able to do.

    Redsn0w isn't just a jb tool, that's why. Sn0wbreeze is just for jailbreaking, primarily. If you were to use Sn0wbreeze, you can still open up Redsn0w and run all those other options if necessary. The only thing you shouldn't do is to use sn0wbreeze then use redsn0w to install Cydia. That'll mess things up.

    Can some tell me the best firmware and jailbreak for an iPod4? I need max memory because of building widgets? 4.3.3 seemed to suck the life out of my poor iPod, LOL

    I am not sure changing firmwares will help but I suppose you could try. You'll need SHSHs to do any sort of downgrading, so you should probably figure that out first.

    Use TinyUmbrella

    Thanks, I got all that. So I guess my question should be with 4.2.1 which is better greenpoison or redsnow? Oh you beat Simon,LOL

    Ah, I see. Personally I always choose Redsn0w if Redsn0w is an option. It is good on 4.2.1 but recently I've been seeing things about it being not so good on 4.3.3 for a few users I've worked with. But I used GP for 4.2.1 myself before Redsn0w came out and GP did a good job.

    So I guess since I didn't use Redsn0w for 4.2.1, I'd suggest GP just bc it worked out for me. And yes, it's a rare occasion that I beat Simon, lol.

    Hey! I was putting my kid to bed

    As far as redsnow and greenpoison both are fine, greenpoison is probably a little easier to use. I prefer redsnow myself though.

    Thanks for your help. I'll try greenpoison then and see how it goes.

    For sure. Oh um for GP, when it tells you to put it into DFU mode, hold the home button through the entire process until all the codes are gone. Just FYI, it'll go smoother that way.

    Well you have been helping way more than me recently. I kinda lay back and just help when no one else seems to be helping or everyone is offline. Kill some spammers while you are helping all the people

    It ia getting difficult, RedSn0w is easiest if you don't nerd to unlocke, otherwise ask!

    Okay, thinking of re-JB my 3GS on V4.2.1 to V4.3.2 now. I also want to preserve BB as am at 05-12-01 and bootrom MC147C, new bootrom I guess.

    Should I be using sn0wbreeze to preserve BB, create my custom IPSW, then use Ultrasn0w to unlock?
    I can never remember this stuff LOL
    I have both PC and Mac, and have used pwntool before as well as redsn0w

    My phone was a Rogers phone but is unlocked for Bell

    Yes to all, you haven't forgotten!! Good luck!

    I recommend pwnage tool to create cfw restore, open Cydia and search for the latest snowbreeze to unlock!

    So I just need to create a custom firmware using pownage tool, option/restore in iTunes, install Ultrasn0w via Cydia as well as no warez. Will this procedure wipe my phone and all my apps and info?

    Why are there posts re: problems with pwntool and to use sn0wbreeze?

    I take it I do not need to run redsn0w either after?

    Do I need to choose Expert mode in pwntool?

    yes it wipes clean, before you begin you should back up your device, and also sync your contacts, notes, pictures etc. to your Mac, i don't remember what its name but in window its outlook, and contacts. proceed to create the cfw select expert mode deselect hacktivate if you have the orginal sim card, other wise select hacktivate, and you know the rest..... and no you do not need redsnow, use one or the other. some people have problem pwnagetool and some have problem with redsn0w, bottom line to each's own.
