    Default Delete jailbreak 4.2.1

    Hello,
    I would like to remove my jailbreak on 4.2.1 and stay with this software version. I tried to ALT-restore to 4.2.1, but that's not working. I found a way to downgrade using SHSH, but it seems I have SHSHs for 4.3.3.

    Is there any other way to restore my device? I have searched for hours but didn't find anything.

    PS, I have an iPod Touch 4G.

    Thanks for your reply.

    No there is no way to reload your firmware and stay on an old version without SHSH blobs.
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

    Are you sure you don't have SHSH for 4.2.1? Try downloading and using Tiny Umbrella to see what blobs you have saved. If you used the Make My Life Easier button in Cydia when you did your jailbreak you may have your 4.2.1 blobs.

    i have tried to put the iphone in DFU mode and restore but i still get the error 1015
    is there any hope in removing the jailbreak or should i just throw the phone in bin lol
    and also when i put the iphone in DFU mode and restore with itunes, the restore nearly completes but right at the end it says ERROR 1015 and it then says "we itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode, you must restore the iphone before you can use it in itines" what shoud i do?

    Two points:
    1. Try using a different USB port and/or another computer.
    2. Do some research to make sure you're entering DFU and not Recovery mode.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).
