download the Fix Recovery from this site Fix Recovery and run it. After you run fix recovery, it will run do some automated step and open command prompts. After that your device will be restarted.if not restart manually and thats it you have downgraded

Download tinyumbrella, collect your iDevices SHSHs, run a TSS server, and downgrade. ((I assume you have 4.2.1 downloaded already))

Where would I find my shsh blobs, I know that I have them saved o. Cydia but I don't know where to find them

Using TinyUmbrella will save them to your PC. And to my knowledge running a TSS is the only way to downgrade. ((If I'm wrong, someone correct me...))
