    I feel like a real idiot for assuming I had a 3GS the entire time. It all makes sense now why the itunes wouldnt read the 2.1 file and redsnow was freezing up. Im going to download 4.2.1 for the 3G and give red snow a go.

    Is there any way i can still back up my SHSH with the 3G? i dont know if i have damaged mine in this whole process, but would you recommend i do anything about it or just go ahead with the jailbreak?

    Thank you for all your help and expertise, it has been greatly appreciated on my end.
    Thanks

    The 3G only uses a software-SHSH, this is never written to the iPhone.
    It was the 3GS where they added the extra security step of writing the SHSH to the phone and making the hardware prevent boot if the SHSH blobs on the phone were damaged.

    Apple does issue a software-SHSH for 4.2.1 and you can save that via TinyUmbrella.

    Jailbreak with redsn0w 0.9.6b8 (downloaded from here Dev-Team Blog - Thanksgiving with Apple ) and use iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw (downloaded from http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm )

    Then enjoy your untethered jailbreak

    Cant seem to download redsn0w 0.9.6b8 from anywhere, not even the dev team blog, it seems saying the page not found, tried on a few different sites through google too but they all seem to be linked to the dev team blog link. Any other suggestions from where i can scoop the file. Once again thanks for all your help

    That is a good point, the oldest version available from the dev team's download site is now 0.9.6rc17. Luckily I have a copy of redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 for windows. Here is a download link for 0.9.6rc8

    I honestly haven't tested if more recent versions of redsn0w 0.9.6 will work with an iOS 4.2.1 IPSW - they might but it doesn't follow the normal pattern for redsn0w that once they support a new iOS series (eg 4.3.x) they drop support for the previous iOS version (eg 4.2.1)
