    Are you asking a question? What is the point of this post? You say nothing in your OP.

    That tutorial is spot on. What about it don't you understand? That would be a good place to start since you haven't asked anything yet :)

    If you don't know how to download a file off the interwebz you probably shouldn't be jailbreaking your device.

    Also, if you're new to jailbreaking, you probably don't want to mess with pwnage and custom firmware.

    I don't think pwnage works on 4.2.8
    Try snowbreeze.

    Make sure you download 4.2 pwnage and not 4.3.

    Just did this and worked perfectly with no hiccups. Make sure you have Pwnage 4.2 (like everyone has said), and also make sure you have the 4.2.8 firmware to locate while using Pwnage in Expert mode.

    No, snowbreeze is just for windows computers.
    I didnt know pwnage worked for 4.2.8 if it does go with that instead.

    How did you escape the recovery mode loop? I used TinyUmbrella TSS server to restore my custom Pwnage 4.2 (with special 4.2.8 file) and a 4.2.8 firmware bundle for Verizon, but I keep getting the USB w/iTunes plugin icon, and iTunes keeps saying phone is in recovery mode. I can't get out of it. TinyUmbrella (latest version) does not kick phone out when clicking fix recovery, and the downloaded fixrecovery43, and fixrecovery421 files appear to run on the phone after going into DFU mode, but it still doesn't work.

    I'm downgrading to 4.2.7 which shipped on my phone until I can do more research into this as it seems as though very few people with the Verizon phone have had any luck. Jailbreaking my iPhone 3G's were easy compared to this CDMA model.

    Update: I restored with factory 4.2.7, used fixrecovery421 to boot the phone out of recovery mode loop. I don't know why it didn't do it to the custom 4.2.8 firmware... other than Pwnage doesn't officially support it (and you need the Verizon-4.2.8-PT-bundle.zip addon) AND/OR the fixrecovery43/421 executables might not have been updated to support 4.2.8. What a waste of three hours.

    I actually didn't run into the recovery loop. It was pretty straightforward for me. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    I used snowbreeze to create custom firmware and then used redsnow to get into the pwned dfu mode so that when iTunes prompts to restore you can use the new firmware.
