wipe it and start fresh with 4.2.1 then try running redsn0w
after it reboots immediately run redsn0w again and select the option of 'just boot tethered'If I've helped you remember to say

So I Restore it and use Redsn0w and tick boot tethered? Then I run redsn0w again and install cydia?

jailbreak and install cydia with redsn0w
wait for reboot
after loaded up, cydia will be a white icon and safari wont work, so plug back into PC/Mac
run redsn0w and select 'boot tethered'
iPad reboots and displays tiny pineapple logo (the symbol of a tethered boot) et voilla! everythign works*
*If iPad battery dies of you have to reboot because of an update to an app or cydia you will have to boot tethered again untill public drop of new and improved redsn0w

Restore it first then go through and jb it the normal way then put it back in dfu mode and click the boot tethered option and run the jb again. You will need to do the boot tethered process anytime you restart or turn the ipad off if you want the jb to work on it.This post infers no rights and is provided as is.
