    I am so dumb - thought I was dlownloading the new itunes and it was instead the 4.3 - lost all my jailbreak stuff including Mi Wii which I use all the time....is there any way to get it back or am I screwed until 4.3 jailbreak? When it is JB for 4.3 do I have to pay again for all the stuff...its just gone! kicking myself!!!!

    Thanks!

    You cant JB 4.3 yet.
    Do you have SHSH blobs for 4.2.1 or below to downgrade your firmware?
    And no you wont have to pay again for apps like Mywi etc..

    thanks for reply!

    I know I cant JB 4.3 - thats why I am so pissed at myself!

    Not sure what these blobs are or how to downgrade firmware - tried to restore to factory settings but it reinstalled the latest backup and kept the 4.3 on it - any idea where I should look for this

    Good news on the apps though - thanks!

    Restoring to factory settings just puts the latest firmware on your phone.
    You need to download and run Tinyumbrella.
    And check to see what shsh blobs you have.
    Then download the 4.2.1 ipsw and restore to that using TU.
    Then JB using Greenpoison and install all your stuff again from cydia.
    But judging by your posts if might not be an easy task.
    Lesson learned, you dont update or restore a JB iphone thru itunes.
    You will always lose the JB and will be back to stock firmware if you do that.

    Tiny Umbrella Run TU and if you have 4.2.1 blobs saved click Start TSS Server. Download 4.2.1 Firmware IPSW HERE make sure you get the right version from the menu. Then open iTunes and Shift+click restore for your iPhone and select the IPSW you downloaded. If you get a error during the restore click Exit Restore and that should fix it.

    When it finishes it will ask you if you want to restore from a backup you can do that it won't mess the jailbreak up.

    After you are done Download Greenpois0n from HERE . Run GP and you are done you just have to reinstall all of your jailbroken apps. You won't have to pay for them again.

    Just run Greenpoisong to JB it and then you just plug it to itunes to activate and you're done.

    awesome! I've got Cydia!!!!

    One last question - it still needs to restore or set up as new - the only options it is giving me to restore from is todays backup (which is not compatable as it has the 4.3 on it) and stuff from other devices - any way to get my backup from yesterday or something -

    I'll never DL an apple update again!!!!

    thought I had it but it was another devices backup - any idea how to get a newer backup from a device? Now I have to overwrite my sons stuff on my phone!

    When I right click on the phone in itunes and choose restore from backup there are none from my phone...just other devices
