    Default Jailbreaking and Unlocking for 4.2.1

    Ok so I have an iphone 4 still on 01.59.00 since i saved it on tiny umbrella.. I updated it to 4.2.1, used tiny umbrella, then used green poison to jailbreak it and everything worked fine..

    Still has the same baseband, its jailbroken and the unlock works. Now My question is can i use the pwnage tool for 4.2.1 to jailbreak and still unlock?

    Im asking this because using green poison has a few glitches on my iphone now. Like MMS stopped working but then I found a cydia fix and that worked for one day and then it stopped working. Every time I turn the phone off or do a hard reset it changes some settings for some reason, and alot of the time my photo library has to re-organize or something.

    Just seeing if pwnage tool will have a cleaner outcome.

    As long as you still have a saved 4.2.1 SHSH, you can use pwnagetool 4.2 to load a "custom 4.2.1" IPSW.
    Pwnagetool 4.2 and greenpois0n use the same kernel exploit to untether. So.. i'm not sure if the actual "jailbreak" is any different between the two.
    My guess is that your problem is related to either an incorrect commcenter patch (see http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/191761.htm for correct patch) , or some "junk" that managed to survive the "update" from iOS 4.0.x

    The nice thing about pwnagetool is that you can choose to set your iPhone up as new after the restore, this often fixes the kind of problems you have. Make sure to backup any important files as you WILL lose some saved data (SMS messages, recent call history, saved game high scores etc) by setting the phone up as new.

    I actually decided to try it before this reply and when I used pwnage tool I kept getting a 1600 error on iTunes. I thought it might be because the iTunes is at 10.2.1 so I tried it on my laptop and got another error. There was no number on this error. It was running 10.1.2.

    Are you sure you were in PwnedDFU mode

    Start Pwnage Tool 4.2 and click "DFU" at the top and go with this tutorial into the DFU mode. This guides you into putting your iPhone into PwnedDfu mode. Only then can you restore with custom IPSW.

    Or if you are on windows, launch redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 - when redsn0w asks for an IPSW, give it an original (unmodified) 4.2.1 iPhone 4 4.2.1 IPSW. Then select ONLY “Just enter pwned DFU mode right now" - follow the prompts. Then restore in iTunes with a custom IPSW made with Pwnagetool 4.2 (NOT THE ORIGINAL IPSW YOU SELECTED EARLIER IN REDSN0W)

    You missed the tilde (~) at the beginning of the path it is ~/Library/Logs/iPhone Updater Logs/

    that is a very different location on your disk than /Library/Logs/iPhone Updater Logs/ (the ~ means your user account, without this you are looking in the Library for all users on the computer.
