    There are more people on here that know a lot more about iphones than I do, but I'll try to help. I had installed Tiny Umbrella on my laptop, and itunes would not connect properly to restore. I finally ended up installing itunes and iOS 4.2 on my wifes laptop, which had never had any jailbreak or itunes installed on it before. Clean fresh install, and it worked fine. However it did take close to 4 hrs to DL 4.2. This is the only way I could do it. Maybe someone else has some ideas. Good luck!

    What does the error say? 4.2 is NOT a good OS. What is your carrier as well?

    OH ALSO 4.2 IS A TEATHERD JAILBREAK!!!

    Depending on if you have a old boot or new boot you will need two different items to JB and unlock. The following by JailBreak matrix will help explain what it is you need to do, and explain which boot you may have that will tellyou in settings/about then down on bottom wheather you have an MC model or not. In my signature will have ALL the links you need. Now recboot will help you get out of those errors.
    Good luck and God speed!

    Jailbreak Guides
    Ok lots of news in the Jailbreak and iPhone community. Today we've seen the 4.2.1 firmware finally release from Apple. Hours later we see the new version of Redsn0w come up from the Dev Team
    Let me give you a little more information about the new Redsn0w 0.9.6b4
    - runs on both OSX and Windows
    - on new devices the jailbreak is tethered, this includes the iPad, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPod Touch 2G MC, 3G and 4G, this means each time that you reboot, you will have to connect to the computer and run Redsn0w again.
    - This tethered jailbreak is a little better, because last time we had a tethered jailbreak, we could not use the phone or ipod until we connected it to the computer, this time we can use the phone but can't use the jailbreak features. Good if you are on the road and your iphone dies, because you can still use it when you plug it in, you just wont have jailbreak features until you get to a computer
    - the jailbreak for iPod touch 2G (non mc) and iPhone 3G, and 3GS (old bootrom) is untethered
    The jailbreak process using Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 to jailbreak 4.2.1 remains the same as always, you can use our Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 guide at the bottom of the page for instructions or :
    I've made 2 videos below choose the one depending on the device you have.
    Watch Jailbreak iPhone 3G / 3GS (old bootrom), iPod Touch 2G(non MC) on 4.2.1
    Watch Jailbreak iPhone 4 / 3GS (new bootrom), iPod Touch 2G(MC), 3G, 4G & iPad on 4.2.1
    here are the files needed for the jailbreak
    Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for Windows
    Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for Mac
    Download 4.2.1 Firmware
    Download Recboot

    Try and run OS again and if error pops up run recboot. All you need is in this thread post number 4.

    Sooner will fix you up. He's an iPhone guru. What I told you worked for me but probably not the easiest way to do it.

    Hey Obione, here are my questions... Is this a brand new phone you have? Have you jailbroken it before? if so, did you save your shsh? did you hit make my life easier on cydia? Were you running 4.0.1 or any other OS's before you went and upgraded to the "why would I wanna upgrade" aka 4.2? If you have jailbroken it before and were running an older OS and you have saved your shsh, then just download a custom firmware...Lemme know which one you want. I usually go to sinfuliphone.com They're the iPhone Gods when it comes to issues like the one you're having. I'm telling ya from experience...I've brought my iphone back from the shadow of death many many many....................many times before. That site is legit and has custom firmwares available for downloads...
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    Bad move...should've asked here first bro... Once you've upgraded OS you can't revert back to 4.1 or 4.0.1 or 3.1.3 or whatever OS you wanna go back to because you've already upgraded your baseband...should've jailbroken first. I'm afraid you're SOL for now. Now if you're phone's acting all screwy and you wanna go back to the OS just download the custom firmware from sinfuliphone

    Recboot will get u out of that error. Keep USB connected in and iTunes open run reboot 3 times wait 5 min. and it will bypass it.

    I asked what carrier and bootloader got no response
