Awesome thanks brother!
This reminds me of my "hybrid" days with my BB Storm. We had waiting rooms/threads all the time for official OS's, leaks, and hybrids.
It got pretty rough in those threads with insults and desperate folks feeling cheated cause the Storm NEVER EVER lived up to the hype. Me? I enjoyed the show.

If you download the 4.2.6 ipsw from apple, you can simply restore this firmware via itunes, and then jailbreak just as before. YOu don't have to save any blobs, or mess with anything technical.
I downgraded my 4.2.7 to 4.2.6 with no issues. Greenpois0n works fine after this.

Also, most of the repositories (the places that Cydia pulls the lists of apps from) get hammered during the first 24-48 hours of a big update jailbreak (4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3), so it's best to hold off just for a short while letting the frenzy cool down a bit.

I did not even look at the features on this new update. What did they fix? Or just the holes? LOL
I guess I will wait a week to see when the new jailbreak comes out.
Thanks, And I thought I would not want to jailbreak my iphone. I had my incredible rooted. But I like that I can trick my phone into thinking its on wifi when its on 3g. Facetime and download app over 20mbs. Thats really annoying when your out and find a new app/game but NOOO!!! you can't download it.

Restoring 4.2.6 firmware via iTunes

Don't extract or modify the .ipsw file. BTW, I am using a mac; on windows, i think you click shift and restore instead.

Basically, I connect the phone to the computer. I then run iTunes (on the comp). Click on the iphone tab. Where it has two buttons (update, and restore). I hold alt button and click on restore. I then select the ipsw from the resulting dialogue box. I then get a message stating "Your firmware will be restored, and will verify with Apple."
I click ok, and off it goes. I've done it 2 or 3 times already (going from 4.2.7 to 4.2.6); so far no issues as you described.
Also, for jailbreaking, I used greenpois0n rc6.1.

You might have your SHSH blobs saved for 4.2.6 which is why you're able to downgrade. If you want to downgrade you need to, have your shsh blobs saved through Cydia or locally with TinyUmbrella. Then
Download firmware you want to reload
Edit the Hosts file
Put iPhone into DFU mode
Open iTunes, it will say there is a device in recovery mode and needs to be restored
Hold the Shift(Windows) or Option(Mac) key and in iTunes click restore
Browse to the firmware file you downloaded and let iTunes do it's thing
Search for Hosts in the forum to see how you need to edit it for the process.
