    PwnageTool 4.2 is out Dev-Team Blog - What's in a name?

    Doesn't really matter where you ran TinyUmbrella. Now your 4.2.1 SHSH blob is saved with Cydia and also on the machine where you ran TinyUmbrella.

    You can create the IPSW on your mac and copy it to a windows machine.
    However you need to run redsn0w on the windows machine and select "enter pwned DFU mode" then follow the prompts to put your iPhone into the right state to restore custom IPSW.
    On the mac pwnagetool handles the whole process for you including the pwned DFU mode steps.

    Also.. the procedure you linked to.. will work with pwangetool 4.1.3, but it's far from ideal.
    With pwnagetool 4.2 you can pretty much use the "easy" mode and you just have to answer no if it asks if you want to upgrade your baseband. Also answer no if it asks you if you can activate normally with iTunes.

    Ok, so it sounds like my best bet is:

    1. JB using PwnageTool 4.2 on Mac, using instructions like 4.2.1 Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPad, iPod touch via PwnageTool 4.2 Released | Redmond Pie.

    2. Unlock with UltraSn0w with instructions like: Unlock 4.2.1 iOS on iPhone 3GS / 3G with Ultrasn0w 1.2 [Guide] | Redmond Pie

    Does PwnageTool somehow link up with the SHSH which Tiny Umbrella stored up on Cydia? Sorry for being a dummy, even though I've googled so much on this, seems there are so many contrary ways of doing things as new progress is made, and I just want to have a successful Unlock.

    I assume it is ok that my backed up iPhone content is on my Win box, even if I JB on the mac. So, I will then take it back to Win box and sync with iTunes and restore backup.

    Finally, is it ok to rename the phone and not cause problems with the JB or unlock?

    Lots of Thank you's.

    Yes Pwnagetool 4.2 & ultrasn0w will work fine.

    Pwnagetool does not link into the SHSH on Cydia at all.

    Only iTunes and TinyUmbrella can retrieve the SHSH from Cydia.

    It's fine to JB on the mac and then sync on your windows PC afterwards

    Olethros, Thanks again, so much for your great explanation and patience.

    So one last question. If I used TinyUmbrella on my PC, with just getting the available SHSH files (It did not change the phone at all), when does that information get linked up with using PwnageTool 4.2 on the Mac?

    Do I need to update the hosts file on my Mac, so iTunes will point to cydia, at the end of using PwnageTool 4.2?

    Thank you.

    Apple still hasn't released iOS 4.3, so right now Apple is still signing 4.2.1 (until Apple stops signing 4.2.1, you don't need to do anything more with TinyUmbrella or changing your hosts file on any of your computers). Just run pwnagetool 4.2, make your custom IPSW, let pwnagetool guide you into pwned DFU mode and restore with iTunes 10.1.x on your mac. Then connect to your windows machine to re-sync existing data.

    When you click "save SHSH" TinyUmbrella does two things: It saves the available SHSH with Cydia (on a server run by saurik) and it saves the available SHSH on the computer where you ran TinyUmbrella.

    I also have an iphone 3gs (16gb) that I'd like to jailbreak and unlock for T-Mobile. It is running 3.1.3 ios and has old bootrom. Would you recomend Jailbreaking it using Sn0wBreeze 1.3 or upgrading the firmware to 4.3.1 and using Sn0wBreeze 2.5. If it is the latter could you provide a bit of guidance on how to do it? Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

    Remember that you need saved SHSH to restore custom IPSW on iOS 4.1 and higher (even with old bootroom 3GS)

    You're not going to get a lot of support for sn0wbreeze here, none of the moderators have really used it much at all. We all use PwnageTool.

    Pwnagetool is the most reliable tool to generate custom IPSW (required to prevent baseband update). We don't recommend sn0wbreeze at all.

    Recent versions of sn0wbreeze are much better and are OK to use if you absolutely cannot get access to a Mac OS X machine (or your windows machine is too slow to run OS X virtualized - via Virtual Box for example).
