    Okay, first, warranty, risk, blah, blah...

    Second: Greenpois0n 4.2.1 is coming untethered any day now, so you might want to wait...

    BUT! Here is how you do it. Unzip it. (unfamiliar with windows unzipping tools) edit: I use stuffit expander free on my mac, and I just found out they have a windows version. go for that. than look for an xxxxxxx.ipsw file. That's your firmware.:D

    Reply with questions.

    There are hundreds of tutorials on the interwebnet where you can follow step by step instructions

    1. Right click and press unzip file on windows. (for your firmware)
    2. Run redsn0w and then point it in the direction of the file you just unzipped.

    if you have any specific questions they would be easier to answer as I am not sure on your exact problem
