hey folks, I just got an iPhone 4 as my 21st birthday gift and I was psyched as ****. i was itching to just jailbreak it and get all sorts of crazy apps. Plus i live in pakistan so i was thinking of unlocking it too. The thing is, the first time i turned my phone on it seemed to have been unlocked and jailbroken already. My friend pointed it out after seeing cydia on my phone (at this point i didnt know **** about jailbreaking and unlocking iphones). Knowing my iphone was jailbroken my friend told me to download installous 4.0 and i'd be able to download all sorts of apps directly on my iphone. My friend ended up downloading installous 4.0 on my iphone and installed it. After installing installous the phone asked to be rebooted, which i obviously allowed. After that reboot the phone was stuck on the apple logo for 2 days. So i read up online and decided to restore my iphone to 4.3 iOS, being scared that my iphone was bricked. Well, i was wrong about that, the phone works - its just stuck on the emergency call (which im guessing is because of it being locked). I know there is a tethered jail break for 4.3 iOS, but i dont choose to follow that. My question is there a way for me to downgrade to 4.2 iOS, knowing my iphone is stuck at the emergency call? Please any help will be appreciated. Im sorry im a complete noob at this, please i need some sort of direction.

Cheers!

The only way to do so if you've taken a step to save the SHSH blob remotely. This is done via Cydia from what I understand, but isn't something I have done or know much about otherwise. Here's a tutorial:
Downgrade iOS 4.3 to iOS 4.2.1, iOS 4.1 (iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch, iPad) | iPhoneHeat

Here's another method:
Download iOS 4.3 and Steps to Downgrade iOS 4.3 to iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad

And finally….

Let me google that for you


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Why not use the tethered jailbreak? Works fine as long as you get it froma reputable source.

Also...

In the future, try not using Installous.

It is buggy, and its just plain stealing

well ive read many posts saying its buggy and a real hassle. I just found out they released greenpoison rc7 that has a tethered jailbreak for ios 4.3. Is that true because i read another post saying it was a lie?
