    are you sure it downloaded all the way? There is a PART file that downloads first...its like 600+ MB that it downloads. My full file is a grey box with a music note on one side and an ipod looking thing on another side.

    Mine doesn't look like that, but it took like 17 min to download and it said that it was 100% complete. Is it supposed to automatically download more? My computer made a compressed zip file. So I have the compressed zip and have a copy where all of the files are extracted in case it doesn't recognize the compressed zip. It is full of DMG files. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'm at a loss here.

    Did it last night and working good. Accidentally used the ipsw that you open w.snowbreeze instead of the final product in iTunes. Could not get it out of recovery mode after that. Tried a few things, only thing that got it out was iReb. First time JB'n

    To be sure: If I'm not jailbroken at all on 4.2.7 I can just go ahead and use this untethered method
    without having to use redsn0w first and then installing the patch from Cydia?

    Open a DOS prompt, change to the directory where you downloaded the file and then (if it is the only *.zip file in that directory) do a ren *.zip *.ipsw and then you should be able to find it. Windows for some reason makes the file into a .zip extension and you (or at least I did) have to rename it.

    Yes. Just follow the directions in snowbreeze. Click the link on the ipsw selection screen, get 4.2.7. Pretty self explanatory it walks you through it.

    try a "hard-reset" by holding the power/sleep button and the home button at the same time for 30 secs.(or until you see the apple logo). let go of the buttons then just wait for it to boot up and try the jailbreak again. if you made the custom firmware on a virtual OS? like a virtual windows? if so, you willl run into these problems. my best bet would be is to just run redsn0w on it and install the patch from the repo that i've provided in Cydia.

    the reason why i'm recommending redsn0w over sn0wbreeze, is that it's easier to use and you won't run into any problems. GSM iPhones should only use sn0wbreeze because they need to preserve their baseband to a required version to use ultrasn0w.

    Okay I'm man enough to admit when something is confusing me.

    I jailbroke my iphone with greenpoison a while back, that's pretty much the extent of what I know about jailbreaking.

    This is a while new step thats really confusing the hell out of me.

    So I have to restore back to stock apple before I jailbreak right? but I have to save with tinyumbrella first? does that save all the apps I've downloaded from Cydia? I remember there was something that saves my apps I just don't know if that's it.

    So to sum it up, help please. Thank you.

    if you restore to a stock firmware or a custom firmware, then you're gonna get the same results. which will restore your iPhone to factory settings(kind of like when first got the phone out of the box) which means that whatever you have on it will get deleted. Tiny Umbrella doesn't save your apps but it saves a very important file called "SHSH Blobs" which is a file that'll help you downgrade back to a lower firmware(ex. iOS 4.2.6) however, you can use aptbackup or pkgbackup to save all of your jailbroken apps.

    Can someone please guide me in the right direction? I haven't jailbroken since I was on a GSM iPhone a very long time ago. And I did it with greenpois0n since it was one click. After I'm done finding the ipsw and putting the phone in dfu mode, I have absolutely no idea what to do on iTunes. I don't understand the shift-restore thing.

    Once you've built the ipsw with Sn0wbreeze, you're going to tell iTunes to use it to as the new ipsw for your phone. You do that by holding down Shift while clicking Restore in the iTunes window. (Hence, "Shift-Restore.") Here's a run-through of the process (you can skip ahead to step 7 if you already built the ipsw); just point iTunes at the file you built. This tutorial is from 4.3.2 but the steps would be the same, just use the firmware you want.

    (edit: I'm assuming you're using Sn0wbreeze...if you're using a Mac, try these instructions.)

    Mac user? no problem. Simply use Redsn0w (instructions here) to jailbreak your Verizon iPhone 4 tethered on iOS 4.2.7 (by pointing it to iOS 4.2.6), and then add Cydia.pushfix.info to install Verizon Untether for 4.2.7 package to get full untethered jailbreak!

    restoring to a custom firmware is just the same as restoring to stock! everything gets reset. you actually have the option to restore from back-up but i highly suggest not too because you might run into battery-problems or something else. just stop being lazy and remember everything you've had on your phone. so i suggest that you grab a piece of paper and write down everything that you have on your iphone before you go to the process of restoring to a custom firmware(hence...jailbreaking it).

    I've tried to use redsn0w 0.9.6rcl4. I've restored to my phone to 4.2.7 from the file I downloaded and when I run redsn0w and point it to the file it says it does not recognize it. I thought I could JB to 4.2.7 or am I just totally new and doing it wrong?

    Thanks

    Let me ask this. I already have the file made and it's on my desktop now. Can
    I just simply connect my phone to iTunes in DFU mode and just do the restore
    from there without having to go through the process on sn0wbreeze again?

    I jailbroke my wife's and my iPhone yesterday after we just switched over from the BB Storm 2 last week. It went smooth and how much of a difference it is once the phone is jailbroken and all of the apps that are available.

    I just removed 37 separate spam posts from this thread, half of which had moved from Cialis and Viagra to porn. By the time I'd finished clicking OK, there was a 38th.

    Sorry, gang, but this has just become too much of a spam magnet.
