    I wanted to update my iPhone 3GS from 3.1.3 to 4.2.1 so then I followed

    METHOD: First use Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 to put your iPhone in Pwned DFU mode so that it is able to accept Custom Firmware file. When iDevice in Pwned DFU mode then simply open iTunes and hit Shift + Restore (Windows) or Option key + Restore (MAC) and load in Custom 4.2.1.

    Onces all the proccess was done iPhone did not reboot but went straight into recovery mode.

    so to take it out off recovery mode I used Tinyumberalla which gave me an option "Fix Recovery"

    When I click on Fix Recovery it did its thing on the phone and gave me a message
    Unable to find gBdevlist
    unable to find fs_mount
    Unable to find fs_unmount
    Unable to find fs_load_file
    Greenpoision Initialized

    and then does some more things again and stops at
    Unable to mount user filesystem!
    AppleBCMWLAN: :handleIOKitBusyWatchdogTim
    eout():Error,no successful firmware do
    wnload after 60000 ms!! Giving up....

    I dont no what to do Please Help.

    Fix Recovery is only for the iPhone 4. Use Exit Recovery for the 3Gs.

    Try manually putting it into DFU mode and restoring to a stock IPSW.
