    I have a 3GS on 4.2.1 and haven not backed up SHSHs.

    Can I still JB with 4.2.1 now that 4.3 is out and I haven't backed up SHSHs?

    If Apple were to stop signing (am I saying that right?) 4.2.1 before I am able to get home tonight and run tiny umbrella will I still be able to JB with 4.2.1?

    Yes, you can still JB it at any time since you're on 4.2.1
    But if something goes wrong during the JB or after installing stuff then you wont be able to restore it to anything but the latest 4.3

    One more question. Can any 3GS be jailbroken now with the latest PwnageTool?

    Only if its not updated to the latest 4.3 that came out yesterday.
    Anything before that you can JB a 3GS untethered with pwnage or green poison depending on the firmware its on.

    By firmware do you mean the iOS version?

    When I run TU to back up the SHSH, how will I know if Apple has stopped signing 4.2.1, will TU notify me?

    Yes, firmware is the Ios version.
    TU will display what shsh's saved for you.
    It will be 4.3 and if it can get 4.2.1 it will be listed there also.

    So it will possibly give me a choice, and if so, I need to choose to backup 4.2.1?

    No, it wont give you a choice.
    You will connect your iphone to your computer, run TU and just press the button that says "Save SHSH" and it will save all available blobs for you.
    You just click that button and wait till the progress bar is over.
    Very simple.

    So as long as it shows 4.2.1 as one of the saved SHSH, I'll be able to restore to 4.2.1 if needed after I jailbreak?

    TU showed SHSHs saved all the way back to 4.0. Does that mean I probably ran TU in the past (when still running 4.0 on my iPhone)?

    Can I get in on this..I'm new at the jb thing. I jailbroke with greenpoison with the ios 4.2.1 so am I reading the thread correct that if I didn't do anything special during the jb process, I can't go to any ios earlier than that? Also when I restore, update to 4.3 then re-jb, I can no longer go back to 4.2.1 in the future? And the shsh stuff confuses me. Iphone 4 btw.

    Yes, either that or you clicked "make my life easier" on Cydia back then.

    Yes, everyone should get in on this.
    Go and download TU and run it.
    Once you do it once Cydia will request your shsh blobs for every firmware without you having to do anything.
    But you need to initiate it first, if you got more than one idevices you should do it with all of them.
    Ipod touch, ipads, iphones etc....

    Okay i just went to that link above and ran it on my windows cpu...got a box that is empty so how do I populate it with info (blogs)? I see a box that says "Start TSS Server." But keep in mind that my phone is turned on right now in it's regular mode. not turned off or anything. It is however, hooked up to the usb cable.

    Plug in your phone, run TU and click "Save SHSH".
    That's all.

    Okay I see that option but it's grey'd out. under "edit" in the left column it shows "show all shsh's" and my phone is recognized as being connected but that save box is grey'd out. the other box, however, "Start TSS Server" option is available for some reason.

    Is it safe to run TU from different computers on the same iPhone?

    Not sure what's wrong with it.
    Make sure you have the latest java update installed and if that doesnt work try it on another computer.
    And yes, you can run it on any computer with no probs.
