Jailbroke & Unlocked iPhone 4 using How/should I upgrade to keep unlock?

For iPhone 4 only: Run TinyUmbrella, save all SHSH, then run TSS server. Then restore normal in iTunes to 4.2.1. When you get error 1015 or 1013, close iTunes and run greenpois0n to jailbreak (and to get iPhone out of Apple logo mode). Then verify that baseband is still 1.59.00 and install ultrasn0w from Cydia.

There is a new software now. Sn0wbreeze 2.2 and it has the option to upgrade while preserving the baseband so you can run then ultrasn0w and still unlock the iPhone.

Is it easier than the greenpois0n route? I heard it is more customizable, but I dont know what the pros of that are.

I have tried these exact steps and have been stuck in the USB pointing to Itunes logo.

Green Poison has failed 3 times.

Do I keep the TinyUmbrella server running?

Or PwnageTool 4.2 will do the same (Sn0wbreeze uses the same code I think).

Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool both allow you to create a custom (already jailbroken) firmware to upgrade to, and don't include a baseband update. Always the safest option if an unlock is critical for you.
