    Default Help with 4.2.1 or maybe 4.3.5 jailbreak.

    ok, so... I was given a 3GS (new bootrom) to jailbreak/unlock. It was running 4.2.1 . . I jailbroke it with redsn0w tethered. I also saved the SHSH to Cydia. But then i read about a Greenpois0n untethered jailbreak. So i tried that but it "failed "
    So after that I couldn't even boot tethered . Therefore i tried a regular restore & update to 4.3.5. That went fine (with tinyumbrella running) until the very end. It seemed to take but now just boots to the usb/itunes screen.
    It doesn't seem like i can downgrade to 4.2.1 either. Even custom IPSW.
    Should i make a 4.3.5 custom IPSW? I tried with pwnage tool but it says wrong firmware bundle.

    I would really appreciate any ideas.
    Man, this has been a headache :-/

    Oh, and I had got it to restore to custom IPSW after the Greenpois0n fail but the phone would immediately go into recover mode and I would have to use redsn0w to fix recovery... Dunno if that helps..

    Did you use redsn0w 0.9.9.b1? That should have worked.
