can sim unlock the ios 4.1?

it can work with 4.2.1 if you have the right baseband but not with greenpois0n

GREEPOIS0N DEVS DO NOT DEAL WITH UNLOCKS

but use iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials and they have some good tutorials on how to unlock 4.2.1 if your on the right baseband and how to upgrade and save earlier basebands so you can still unlock if you rely on it

I would like to know how do i upgrade the jailbreak from 4.1 to 4.2.1, i tried both Greenpoison RC5 and RC6 and it goes through the motions of jailbreaking but it remains on 4.1?

I "shift restore" the 4.2.1 firmware and got the expected 1013 error in itunes i then went and used RC6 and it completes the jailbreak but the phone stays at 4.1.

I'm new at this but it should be doable.

When in Itunes checking for updates results in none being found.

Unless your preserving your baseband you don't need to shift restore. Just restore normally in iTunes to 4.2.1 (4.2.6 if on verzion) then jailbreak using greenpoisi0n rc6.

If your still getting error 1013 see this thread...
