Pointing it to a ipsw doesn't update it. You have 4.2.6 installed, right? Download that ipsw and point redsn0w to it. And there's no newer version anyway.

I thought there wasn't anything that could make an iPhone 4 work with a non-AT&T or Verison carrier yet? Greenpois0n can jailbreak it, but an Ultrasn0w isn't out yet, maybe for a month?
