Hi to all in the forum, recently I bought this Iphone 3GS online, but when I tried to update the OS from 4.1 to 4.2.1 Itunes can't install the 4.2.1. I used Tiny Umbrella and the only SHSH I got are 4.1, 4.3 and 4.3.1. It's possible to use Greenp0ison RC5 to Jailbreak and install the 4.2.1, without the original 4.2.1. Thanks with any info.

You can jailbreak as you are using Limera1n or Greenpois0n rc4 (google it), or try to shift/alt - restore again to 4.2.1, making sure hosts is set to Cydia, TinyUmbrella can do this under the advanced tab and I think it's done by default. If Cydia has 4.1 shsh's for you then it must have 4.2.1, you may also want to sit it out for another 24hrs to see what MuscleNerd brings to the scene with regard to his tweets.

What is your baseband and how do you get service?

I only need to Jailbreak. My baseband is 5.16. I tried many times to restore 4.2.1 but without luck. Right now I have cydia with 4.1 and all the time said This device is in the tss queue. With Tiny Umbrella I only have the shsh for 4.1, 4.3 and 4.3.1. Thanks with any info

Then just jailbreak as you are, but bear in mind it might be worth holding off for the rest of day, to see if 4.3.1 jailbreak gets released, you don't want to be doing it twice.....

......and if that is your current baseband then it's already been to 4.3/.1 and someone has downgraded it to 4.1, probably thought the baseband would downgrade also, but this is not the case, then sold it on as they can't unlock it.
