I'm waiting to upgrade my iPad from 3.2.1 to 4.2.1 until there is a working untethered JB.
I have the WiFi only version, so I don't care about preserving the baseband or unlocking.
I heard a rumor that its still tethered JB on the iPad and that there were problems with Bluetooth with the betas. Can anyone confirm or deny these rumors?Devices: iPhone 3GS iOS 5.0.1 (old boot ROM), iPad 2 64GB/3G/4.10.01 iOS 4.3.3, Android and WM phones as well

I've been testing it on a WiFi iPad, and so far under b3, everything is working great for me except Bluetooth, which is a known (and solvable) issue. It is definitely UN-tethered.
The JB has somewhat stiff requirements (Mac only, blobs for 4.2b3, command line entry), but it's very encouraging. I hope they manage to remove the 4.2b3 blob requirement though, or there are a pretty limited number of folks that will be able to use it.

You mentioned that the bluetooth issue is solvable. How did you resolve it?
I seem to have blobs for 4.2b3 in Cydia even though I've never run that version of iOS. It may have been from Tiny Umbrella. It can save SHSH blobs for versions that you aren't even running.
I kind of have a MAC. I have Snow Leopard running as a VM under VMware. It may or may not work for jailbreaking because I think they do some direct access to the USB port. Since VMware virtualizes the USB port, It may not work.Devices: iPhone 3GS iOS 5.0.1 (old boot ROM), iPad 2 64GB/3G/4.10.01 iOS 4.3.3, Android and WM phones as well

I use my WiFi iPad with my 3G running MyWi and have never had a problem
Additionally you can JB your iPad 4.2.1 no problems, it's just tethered at present, give it a week and there will be an untethered working version of redsn0w where you can just click and it's done, if you are going to JB now just don't let your iPad battery die or reboot,,, if you do you have to boot tethered using your PC/MacIf I've helped you remember to say

I also use a bluetooth GPS module sometimes with my iPad with Navigon.Devices: iPhone 3GS iOS 5.0.1 (old boot ROM), iPad 2 64GB/3G/4.10.01 iOS 4.3.3, Android and WM phones as well

I jailbroke using the tethered method and on the second reboot, it got stuck at the apple screen. I'll be waiting for untethered!
