    Unhappy Having issues uploading to 4.2.1 Firmware [3GS]

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone can help me, I've got an older 3GS model and trying to flash to the new firmware 4.2.1 however it hangs on the apple logo..

    Run redsn0w

    Locate 4.2.1 firmware

    Start phone in mode as required

    Redsn0w flashes and advises that the rest of the procedure takes place on phone

    Phone goes through updating flash and receive the final message that it's Installing Bundles

    Apple logo comes on and then hangs from this point on

    The phone keeps pinging as if the USB cable had kept being inserted and removed

    The loading sign on the iphone comes on

    Phone reboots

    Windows shows "Ducky Iphone Connected", I can browse files etc

    Iphone keeps rebooting

    I've tried flashing 3 times now but the same issue any ideas please?

    I can flash to 4.1 via redsn0w which works fine but as soon as I try 4.2 it causes this issue

    Do you have any programs installed that allow you to access the iPhone as a drive? Are you running iTunes 10.1?

    The exploit used for tethered jailbreak is more sensitive to anything else that uses the AppleMobileDevice connection to talk to the phone normally this is just iTunes, but other programs like DiskAid, iPhone Browser, itunnel all could cause this.

    Also, if you have used any non official pwnagetool bundles to load 4.2.1 without upgrading baseband you likely have incorrect kernel patches.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
