    im getting error(1) on itunes when i try to restore my iphone 4 to iOS 4.2.1,
    i want to try custom firmware cooked in snowbreeze.
    is it okay to do that? i mean would it mess with my baseband, coz i dont want that 06.15.00 baseband and also my iphone i factory unlocked.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Yes, you can use snowbreeze if you want. Whatever custom firmware you want to restore to you will need shsh blobs for that version in order to do it.
    And you cannot install the ipad bb version 06.15.00 on the iphone 4 even if you wanted to. Its only for the 3G and 3GS.

    Your phone is factory unlock so not really sure why you are worry about the BB, you shouldn't.

    Now I am guessing all you want is to have an untethered Jailbreak. to answer your question, yes you can une SB to cook your custom ipsw, however whatever version you cook, you have to have SHSHs to restore to that.

    If you have SHSHs for anything before 5, I would suggest that you just restore to that (using TU or changing your host file) and then use the others tool to JB, Pwnage, GreenPoi0n, (depending on what version you went back to).

    You are right. If OP has a factory unlocked phone, then what the point of saving baseband. OP also should careless about the customs firmware. The only thing he/she should concern about is to have SHSH blobs save in case he/she want to go to 1 of those fw for untethered jailbreak.

    I am confused of actually what OP wants to do here :confused:

    Actually i tried to update my iphone running iOS 4.2.1 to 4.3.3,everything went well until itunes gave an error at very end of the process,so it probably deleted the previous iOS and the new one is not installed completely bcoz of the error,so my phone is stuck in recovery mode,
    i tried again many times but still the same error,
    i read somewhere that i should use custom firmware cooked in SB!
    And the reason i'm worried abt the baseband is that i thought SB would install ipad BB and i would lose my Location service :)

    I can see what went wrong with your phone.

    1. The reason Itunes gives you an error because Apple has stopped signing 4.3.3. Therefore, you can't restore to that firmware unless you have SHSH blob for it.
    2. Ipad baseband is for 3G & 3GS and has nothing to do with Iphone 4. Also, when you restore fw, you can't put ipad baseband on. Ipad baseband is installed during the jailbreaking process where you tell Redsn0w to put it on. It will not put it on automatically.

    So, the only option for you right now is to restore your phone to the latest firmware which is 5.0.1.

    Okay,but i have a question, when apple stopped signing 4.3.3,
    Then why the hell this error occured at nearly end of the process?
    It should hav occured when i started the restore.... Itunes sucks man!

    Soon after 4.3.4 came out.

    For 99.9% of all iPhone users this is a non-issue. Apple probably did this on purpose just to PO people who jb.

    Sounds like a great opportunity for you to write your own version of iTunes.
