    You want to restore the custom firmware from your iphone 4 to a 3GS?

    No, that's not possible. Neither the baseband nor the IPSW is interchangeable.

    You CAN jailbreak the 3GS on 4.2.1 with greenpois0n, but it won't be unlocked unless you use the iPad baseband.

    Yes, Greenpois0n will jailbreak your 3GS with that firmware and it is untethered.

    Yes, that will work. Use the latest version of greenpois0n because I think that resolved the ibooks issue.

    There are several ways you can check;

    1. look at the back to see the wording on the lower section is the same color at the Apple logo (Chrome), model # should be A1303. (This can be change if someone want to fake their phone by just changing the back housing)
    2. Open the camera app, 3GS has function to record video.
    3. 3GS has compass app while 3G doesn't.
    4. Write down the model #s and run it through Apple website.
