    :apple::( Hi, I have an iphone 3G and things went horribly wrong when I was trying to update it to 4.2.1 firmware. I tried to jailbreak it things went quite smoth upto this point but after upgrading it to 4.2.1 I jailbreaked it with red snow and updated it to base band 6.15 but after doing that I wasn't able to make connection to my network I know there is a step which I missed that I had to go to cydia and install a thing called snow or something but instead of doing that I went to itunes 10.1 and ran the restore but the restore failed and my mobile went into restore mode showing an USB and Itunes icon above it. I tried to run itunes restore few times but didn't work so I reinstalled the baseband with redsnow butttttt after doing all that I haven't been able restore my iphone back to working condition. please help I have been searching internet for about 3 days now. I can hardly open my eyes to read anything on my pc.lol.

    Do you have Shsh's for 4.1 by any chance?
    If not you will need a custom ipsw created with pwnage tool to restore to that.
    You will not be able to restore to regural 4.2.1 thru itunes any longer since you installed the ipad BB.
