    Well my iPhone was replaced via advanced exchange because it has the dreaded home button problem. However, the phone was delivered at home because I am away for school.
    I had planned to be home Friday to save the 4.2.1 SHSHs but it appears apple released 4.3 early!
    Rather than wasting a trip home to save nothing...Is Apple still signing the 4.2.1 SHSHs?

    Thanks, Paul

    I would assume so since 4.3 has only been out for a day now but, then again, who knows? I saved my SHSH's yesterday through TU and I finally got my 4.3b1 shsh and the 4.3GM came through as well.

    Thanks for the reply! I just don't want to drive all the way home today and go back for classes tomorrow since gas prices are insane right now. So, there is no way to tell by going to some website to determine what SHSHs are still being signed?

    Not that I'm aware of. If you're able to, just download TinyUmbrella and run it and see if you are able to grab the 4.2.1 shsh's that way.

    I screwed up my phone last night, and had to retsore as new and itunes made me update to 4.3 I ddidnt do the shsh blobs save thing. It was my first time jailbreaking and i didnt think of it. Do i now have to wait for the 4.3 jailbreak or is there a way for me to go back if i didnt save the shsh blobs?

    The window might still be open. You can put your phone into DFU and do <option>+restore in itunes. If the window for 4.2.1 is open, it'll allow you to install the 4.2.1 ipsw. If not, you'll have to wait for the jb.
    ETA: Save your blobs now.

    It means if you hold the option button and hit restore on itunes selecting 4.2.1 and it lets you do it then shsh's are still released.

    If you have a PC then it's Control + Restore I believe. Option + Restore is for Mac's

    If you just want to test it out and save your shsh its easier to just run TU.

    Unless you really want to restore to 4.2.1 and rejailbreak.

    Its not like saving your firmware.
    You should always save your shsh's or at least do it initially so cydias server can keep saving those for you incase you need them in the future.

    Ok thanks for all the info. So if i go home and download tiny umbrella, and save my shsh through that, will that give me access to downgrade to 4.2.1?
