1. this release was in no way rushed, if you were in the Dev program you'd have known this....
2. the 1013 error is not native to this release, it did it to me on 4.1 and also 4.0 on my 3G. 4.2 went on without a hitch for me.
but thanks for the guide, if i encounter the problem again, i'll try it.

I don't ever post in forums, at all, but this tip will work 100%, I've tried everything the last 4 hours including TinyUmbrella, and RecBoot to try and kick it out of the recovery loop and neither worked until i stumbled across this forum and it worked on the first try. So do what he/she said and use....
sudo nano /etc/hosts

Unles you have SHSH blobs saved for 4.2.1, there is no way of upgrading to 4.2.1, as apple no longer signs iOS 4.2.1 for any iPhone other than the iPhone 3G and the second-generation iPod Touch.
