    Read the FAQ and guides to familiarize myself. Got an old 3G just to play with. Mistakenly updated to Version 4.2.1 (8C148)

    Info on handset:
    Version 4.2.1 (8C148) as stated above
    Model MB499L
    Modem Firmware 05.15.04

    I used redsn0w_win_0.9.6b6 for jailbreak and it's been a mess really. Slow as can be, cydia runs but winterboard and sbsettings don't run well and keep crashing. At this point I'm just trying to reset to factory but keep getting error 9's and the restore to factory fails. I've searched the forums and google didn't come up with much.
    TIA

    Download the ipsw or dmg and use shift (option on mac) restore method to restore...

    I finally got it done after multiple resets but now I'm on 4.2.1
    While I have your attention, is redsn0w the best way to jb my 3g?
    TIA

    Yes, 3G is untethered.

    It doesn't run very well though as winterboard and sbsettings crash all the time. I didn't enable multitasking either since on another thread I saw it was giving folks issues (I'm very used to this so that sucks!). Perhaps I shouldn't update Cydia when I launch it the first time?
