No he means 4.2.6 even with saved shsh it's been hit or miss wether your device will downgrade or not. I always got error after attemting 4.2.8 with saved shsh.

I thought verizon started off at 4.2.8? I might try to downgrade again and post a correct process.

Technically Verizon started at 4.2.5 but was quickly updated to 4.2.6 most Verizon iPhones came with 4.2.6 installed. 4.2.6 was untethered usuing Greenpois0n. 4.2.8 was the first to be untethered with Redsn0w for Verizon and would also be its last. For now at least.

Should be as easy as opening tiny umbrella, starting the server, entering dfu, and shift restore in iTunes. But I can almost gurantee you an error.

Not really. Restore straight to 4.2.8 firmware. You'll be put in recovery mode...but jailbreak it anyways then create custom snowbreeze firmware, then restore to it. That's what I did and it worked.

Snowbreeze doesn't support 4.2.6 do you have 4.2.8 saved?

I do too. Could never get back to it though. Lord knows I tried! iOS5 tethered is fine for now. I should be getting my Nexus in 2 weeks or so anyways.
