    I did the 4.2.1 update using Tiny Umbrella (latest version) to keep my 1.59 baseband before the jailbreak. Everything seemed to go fine (I did this for 4.1 as well without issue) but this time I am unable to "kick out of recovery mode." Stuck at the USB ITUNES screen.

    I'm sure someone else has gone through this. Any help would be appreciated.

    You have to put it in dfu mode and use greenpois0n to jailbreak it. This will also get it out of recovery mode.

    OK, so AFTER I used T.U. to do the update (while it is stuck in recovery) do the jailbreak?
