    Restore to 4.1 and save his SHSHs for 4.1 with Tinyumbrella.

    Yeah they can, you're thinking of the first gen...

    And to answer your question, use redsn0w, and no custom firmware is needed. Here's the link:

    Never mind, sorry, just realized you were on windows, redsn0w only works on mac OS.
