4.2.1 shsh's or it's a no go, the window has closed, any restore via itunes will result in a restore & update to 4.3

Download TinyUmbrella and connect your idevice, under advanced tab make sure 'set hosts to Cydia on exit' is checked, double check by clicking on and you will hopefully see a Cydia page, if you see Apple 404 page then it's not right. Once done with that, just shift (Win) alt (Mac) & restore in itunes and from the pop up window navigate to and select a 4.2.1 ipsw and let itunes do the rest.
