  • Apple Unleashes iOS 4.2.1 GM for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch to Devs



    On Thursday, Apple released to developers a brand new version of the Golden Master iOS firmware for the iDevices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). Bumped up to 4.2.1 Build 8C148, we may now be closer than ever to the final version delivering fixes to the glitches, bugs, and other shortcomings with which many of us are familiar.

    From Network World:

    The new GM has reportedly been released to address bugs and errors found in previous builds. Earlier on Thursday, MacRumors published an e-mail sent out by VoIP developer Toktumi--responsible for calling app Line2--that warns customers not to upgrade to the latest version of Apple's iOS. "If you upgrade to iOS 4.2 and you are running Line2 in the background, the ringer will continue to ring even after an incoming call is answered," the e-mail notes, stating that the issue has been designated as "severe" by Apple Developer Support.
    As it stands, there is widespread speculation (but no concrete evidence) that the public version of the new firmware will hit on or around November 24th. Today, however, marks a substantial update for the iPad and squarely places the tablet on a fast track to being on "the same software track as the iPhone," effectively giving life to iOS 4 on the iPad and a multitude of hot features, not the least of which is multitasking.

    Nonetheless, despite the update and version increase, sources have been quoted (including in a report published by MacRumors) that Apple is allegedly telling developers not to resubmit their applications. For now, the release is a positive step in the right direction and a stellar indication that a final, public release is imminent.

      Whoa!, this might be dumb of me to ask, so if they are not now bringing out 4.2 and gonna bring out 4.2.1 instead does that mean all the rumors about the unlock for 4.2 release for the iphone 3GS amd iphone 3G does that mean that this won't be happening anymore cos of the release of 4.2.1 so the unlock will have to work on one for 4.2.1? Or not cos the baseband is the same as 4.1?

      If you update to 4.2.1 there's a baseband update. And you can downgrade it meaning it can be unlocked.
      Does anyone know the baseband for ios4.2.1 because I'm going to upgrade my 3GS then downgrade it then unlock it.

      Woah, there buddy. Basebands can not be downgraded for iPhone 3GS. Just to let you know. You can downgrade firmware if you have SHSH blobs on file but fuzzyband only works with old firmware and different devices i believe. But i know for a fact you cannot downgrade BASEBAND/Modem Firmware. Thats why us unlockers had to wait for PWNAGETOOL to be released so we could preserve our baseband and update to 4.1

      My wife was using my iPod and she was hooked up to iTunes when it said to upgrade firmware to 4.2 so she did. What a msitake that was. My previously jailbroken phone is no longer so and when I try do downgrade to 4.1 it says firmware is incompatible. So I trie to restore my device to the factory settings and I get an unknown error message. My phone is 1 week old and I feel like I am F'ed. Can anyone help me get the phone back to 4.1 or at least get it working in 4.2 so I can wait for a proper jailbreak. If you would like to contact me directly you can email me at [email protected] Thanks,
