    Since the firmware was just released I think you will need to wait for a bit until things have been updated. It shouldn't take too long because it doesn't seem like there was a huge change.

    Not sure why anybody would upgrade to 4.2.7 OS since all this was just a security patch to protect against JB'ing

    hopefully this will happen soon, is there a way to revert back to 4.2.6 if need be in order to jailbreak again if you already have 4.2.7 installed.

    If you have your SHSH blobs saved you should be able to downgrade and re-JB. Do a search for SHSH or blobs there's a ton of threads about doing it. I've never done it or I would give you more help.

    According to i0n1c, the jailbreak hole is still open, but he just has to modify a bit of code for it to work with iOS 4.2.7/4.3.2

    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.

    LOL

    Can you use the current version of greenpoisOn to Jailbreak Verizon 4.2.7? If someone has asked this sorry, I tried searching.

    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.

    Best thing to do is as soon as Apple releases a new firmware update, look at it's features. If it doesn't have anything big in it, ignore it. If it has big features (AirPlay, the whole 4.0 update, etc), keep an eye on this forum for any posts with the firmware version number in the title for discussions on the jailbreak ETA.

    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.

    How do you do this? I downloaded the 4.2.6 ipsw, but I cannot figure out how to restore from this file. I have unarchived it, but the only option I can find to restore is via the restore button on the "Summary" page on iTunes, which automatically takes me to Apple online for them to restore to the original factory settings, which I assume will take me to the current firmware I'm trying to get away from.

    I downloaded the 4.2.6 firmware (.ipsw file). I fired up itunes, connect iphone. Then I hold down alt button and click on "restore", which opens up a dialogue box where I can point to the downloaded firmware. Then it starts the process like normal.

    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.
