TinyUmbrella lets you update iPhone 4 to iOS 4.2.1 while preserving its baseband 01.59.00 which is unlockable with UltraSn0w. In this guide, you’ll learn how to update iPhone 4 to iOS 4.2.1 firmware while preserving baseband 01.59.00 using TinyUmbrella.
Updating iPhone 4 to iOS 4.2.1 also updates your baseband to 03.10.01 which is NOT unlockable at the moment. However, if you update your iPhone 4 to iOS 4.2.1 while running TinyUmbrella TSS server, it’ll preserve its baseband 01.59.00 and update iOS 4.2.1. Lets learn how to use TinyUmbrella to update iPhone 4 to iOS 4.1 while preserving baseband 01.59.00.
WARNING: This method applies to iPhone 4 only. iPhone 3GS and 3G users MUSt stay away from it and wait for an UltraSn0w update. I have tested this method myself on my iPhone 4 and it works like a charm.
