    Just wanna make sure guys...

    I sold my VIP4 JB 4.2.8 phone to get the 4S. bottom line, should of never done this.

    Now, I found a VIP4 4.2.8 on CL, and i have a good trade in line.

    Can I just use the custom ipsw thru PT i used from my old VIP4 to jb the one I get from CL?

    I don't have to worry about shsh and blobs right?

    No it will not work. When you try to restore the custom IPSW it will not allow you to without blobs. Any blobs you have from the previous phone are useless since they are phone specific.

    You can only restore to a version apple is signing even if its a custom ipsw.

    I will not work. You need stock firmware for jailbreak when Redsn0w asks you for firmware.

    Yes u do have to worry about shsh blobs.
    You can't restore to custom firmware with no blobs. U can jb it though on 4.2.8 I believe using redsnow.
