your problem is the baseband, you need to install a customized version of ipsw now that you have the ipad baseband.
Try using the latest redsn0w to downgrade your baseband, then use sn0wbreeze to create a custom 4.2.1 ipsw so that you don't upgrade the baseband. Then you can use ultrasn0w to unlock afterwards.
