    Hey guys I'm in a bit of a hole here, I bought a jailbroken ipad with 4.2.1 on it and tried to reset content on it from settings menu and I'm stuck now.
    I tried hosts trick, redsn0w, tinyumbrella, but without the shsh blobs saved can't move but up to 4.3.1 I think which I don't want.
    Anyone have any smart solution to this without upgrading? Oh btw I get error 3194 when restoring in Itunes. Thanks much guys.

    if you don't have shsh blobs saved your out of luck

    As kvizzel alluded, it's an Apple signing error because they aren't signing 4.2.1 anymore. You HAVE to update because you don't have 4.2.1 blobs saved. There is no other option.

    Any way to save the shsh while stuck in this loop? Tiny tries but fails.

    Does TinyUmbrella actually see your iPad? Or does TinyUmbrella fail to see it? If it fails to actually see the iPad then you have a chance that the original owner might have saved the SHSH blobs, if they were not saved then you are out of luck. Because you chose to erase/reset your only option now is to upgrade to 4.3.1. You can use Sn0wBreeze 2.4b1 to jailbreak 4.3.1, it is however a tether jailbreak...

    Yes it sees the ipad and lets me use kick out of recovery, fix recovery and save shsh blobs with no results though. I'm upgrading now :p
