    The best way to do this on a windows machine is to use a combination of the deliberately corrupt LLB (most likely via a specially crafted 3.x IPSW)
    This is described in another long thread start reading here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/80193...htm#post432508

    Then use redsn0w to go from normal DFU to pwned DFU. Finally you must restore with a 4.2.1 custom IPSW

    NOTE: There is no way (on windows) that I know of to achieve this and jailbreak your existing iOS (ie jailbreak with redsn0w or greenpois0n) - you must use custom IPSW (preferably from PwnageTool)

    End result - you are better off finding a mac. There is a program from the iPhone linux guys that is mac only and beta - but should do what you want.

    Another solution (2G and 3G only) that has worked in the past (but I can't think how it can work post iOS 4.1 / with the limera1n exploit) is described here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/80193...htm#post465112 you can use TinyUmbrella to force the phone into recovery mode, then downgrade to 3.1.2 and jailbreak with blackra1n (you are now pwned) then you again need custom IPSW (preferably pwnagetool, but if you want to risk it sn0wbreeze will probably work)

    Or you could always run the phone/touch play music games etc until it shuts off. When your ready hold the home button as you plug it in

    That will get you into Recovery mode, not DFU mode. They ARE different.

    Read the long thread I linked to http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/80193...htm#post432508

    A bit of googling will probably throw up a short guide. It's not hard to do this - just confusing for a n00b. You MUST restore the phone afterwards.
