Run TinyUmbrella and click Save all button. If it finds SHSH for 4.2.1 on Cydia, you can downgrade.

So you just bought it from the store running 4.3?

If the previous owner ran TinyUmbrella, you can get the shsh's. You might get lucky. Only one way to find out. You don't have to be jailbroken to run TU and save shsh's.

i don't think so.

You gotta give TU a shot dude, how do you know it was never JB before.

(26 Mar '11, 16:55) venusanann venusanann's gravatar image

previous owner don't even know abt the jailbreak.

(26 Mar '11, 17:02) arshiesst arshiesst's gravatar image

Aside from that, you should run it anyway and save 4.3.1 shsh's, because at some point 4.3.2 (or 4.4) will be out, and Apple will stop signing 4.3.1.

(26 Mar '11, 17:03) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

yes, i'll save it. thanks.

(26 Mar '11, 17:04) arshiesst arshiesst's gravatar image

It would still be worth running TU to see if they were saved. You never know.
