    Restore it using iTunes and don't back it up or anything. If that doesn't work, plug it in, turn it off and then put it in DFU mode and follow the prompts on screen. If that doesn't work then idk lol

    Which iPhone and what firmware are you trying to restore to? If it's not 4.2.1, you probably need saved old SHSH files.

    You need to restore as new. That means you will have to update (which shouldn't matter since you don't want to be jailbroken). After you've restored as new, you can restore from a backup so that you get all your apps and stuff back without the jailbreak.

    What is the name of the file you are trying to restore with? The error message you are getting usually means you are either trying to restore to something other than 4.2.1 or trying to use a firmware file made for a different iphone.
