    Help trying to jailbreak 4.1 (8b117)

    Right, ive tried many different things, my phone has the 4.1 (8b117) - my itunes 10 says this is the latest version?
    Yet my partner has 4.0.2 and its jailbroken, anyway, when jailbreaking my phone with redsn0w it will only read the 4.0 ispw, any others it just says not recognized.

    The phone will jailbreak etc, but when it is done, i have no phone button and my cydia logo is blank.

    Then when checking the settings it says i still have 4.1 (8b117), when turning off it doest and just reboots, so ive got to put it into restore mode and restore via itunes and get the phone back to standard and its fine then?

    Could someone shed somelight?
    I would like to try sn0wbreeze, but it makes my custom ispw but does not install it, and itunes wont let me restore with the file? am i missing something that uploads it to the phone?

    thanks all

    I think you can jailbreak 4.1 on Iphone 3g using Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 but not on 3GS/iphone 4, though the baseband update it also gives you when moving to 4.1 (5.14.02) means you can't sim unlock it afterwards

    Also, i found you needed to use iREB before you try the SW update as this will boot the phone and alow the snOwbreeze custom .ipsw to be uploaded ok via itunes

    i used snowbreeze to jailbreak my 4.1 3g, it automatically opens and runs iREB if its needed too.
