    Thanks so much for quick reply...

    hurmm..

    By what you all reply..the steps to JB is;

    1) backup your SHSHs with tiny umbrella
    2) update to 4.2.1 - with custom firmware using PwnageTool
    3) jailbreak with redsn0w

    is this the right steps??? or did i miss something..please assist..

    Thanks.

    ^Almost

    PwnageTool (Mac) jailbreaks AND makes a custom firmware. If no Mac, find a custom firmware and use Redsnow to get it started (DFU) and jailbreak. Unlock (if needed) with ultrasnow.

    If you're using PwnageTool custom firmware, there will be no need to run Redsn0w as the custom fw is basically jailbreaking the phone. Redsn0w is used to set into DFU mode so iTunes won't error out when restoring to the custom fw. If you've used Blackra1n, that step can usually be skipped and just simply restore to the custom fw.

    form my understanding after read post above:

    1) Backup your SHSHs with Tiny Umbrella
    2) Update IOS 4.2.1
    3) With Custom Firmware, use Redsn0w to get it started (DFU) - need to find Custom Firmware coz I'm using windows.
    4) Jailbreak with redsn0w
    5) Unlock (if needed) with ultrasnow

    Is this what you all try to say..correct me if i'm wrong..

    Clarification for #4. For the 3gs old bootrom (untethered) new bootrom (tethered) 4.2.1 custom firmware Redsnow is needed because Cydia is not included.

    Thanks x98car for this detail.

    If updating to 4.2.1 custom firmware then you will need to run redsnow after. The custom 4.2.1 made with pwnage tool for 3GS is not a complete bundle as it doesnt install cydia. After using it to get to 4.2.1 and preserve your baseband you will need to run redsnow to install cydia.

    Really? Seriously? I really thought after making the bundle change it was complete. Guess that's what was meant by 'miminal
    3gs' bundle. Darn, these pesky little details. And I always relied on Pwnage for the complete one-stop tool

    Once again x98car comes to the rescue

    You don't need shsh for current firmware.

    You can get a regular 4.2.1 firmware from downloads section at the top of the page.

    Yup, those dang minimal bundles lol. Hopefully when dev team releases the untethered jailbreak we will see a updated pwnage tool fully covering all devices

    owh...

    When Redsn0w ask for CURRENT Firmware..that means the Firmware version(in my case 4.2.1) that want to upgrade, is it..??

    then when JB with Redsn0w..i need to used the "custom" or "regular" Firmware(consider have custom firmware)..

    When using redsnow always use regular firmware and almost always use the current firmware you are on. Exceptions to that are if you are on 3.x and are just using it to enter pwned dfu. Then you can put in 4.2.1 to redsnow.

    Ok, how hard is it to upgrade my iP4 from 4.0.2 to 4.1? I'm terrified of trying this, but i'm told that 4.1 may cause my phone to work better with some themes.

    I've read the first page 10x's and most of it is German to me. Would someone be able to help me? Maybe give pointers/excact steps?


    iPhone 4
    4.0.2 upgraded to 4.1
    Need help
