    Jailbreak for life just means you will always have the ability to jailbreak. The jailbreak tools still have to be updated every time though and a update or restore will always wipe away a jailbreak.

    Find the firmware on the Internet. Someone posted links to the firmwares on the last thread about 4.2 somewhere in the first three pages. After you download the appropriate firmware, open iTunes, shift click (I'm not sure what it is on a Mac, maybe control click?) on restore, and choose the downloaded firmware.

    Lmfao!

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    Default Cydia for 4.2.1

    There is a Cydia Patch file out there (Check Redmondpie.com for the link, couldn't get to it for some reason). You'll have to download the patch and copy it to your /Applications/Cydia.app/Cydia_ directory using Cyberduck or some other SSH client.

    Everything is ready to go for 4.2.1, Redsn0w, Cydia, etc..so I don't believe that it will be an issue for you to JB your 4.2.1 based iPhone. iPad is a different story, as this was always a 3.2.x branch, Cydia was never certified to work on, but, it did in most cases. Winterboard would be nice!

    Good luck!

    I only use JB for themes and SOME little tweaks ( for ipad) I can live without those things for the sake of 4.2 (temporarily)

    Can I then, when an inevitable JB is released, jailbreak, or "revert back to 3.2 through itunes 'Revert' button" if I need to get back to it?

    I want to know if upgrading now, before there is a JB is going to jeopardize my capability to JB later?

    Will I need to be on 3.2 to JB and update to 4.2?

    Im reading this post, and i'm saying to myself "Wow, ModMyi has really fallen off with the artciles. This is an article saying absolutely nothing. It will be recycled for every FW release from now until infinity". And then I see the peoples comments. To quote the windows phone commercial, "Seriously?"

    For one, the articles on modmyi are old, stale, recycles from other sites. This is SAD. Ive been on this site for 3 years, What is going on? At least recycle the CURRENT ads. Thats been a complaint for the mid- to high level modders on this site. Seriously, stop letting us down.

    Now for the rest of you, AN UNLOCK IS NOT OWED TO US! These people do this for free. To help us out who are technically fascinated by this stuff, to those who just want a phone to be cool. These things take time. Apple, a multi billion dollar company has a whole team of employees that they pay GREAT salaries to prevent jailbreaks and unlocks. A handful of people who live normal lives with kids and girlfriends are probably right now coding their asses off to give you the most out of your device, FOR FREE. NOTHING IS OWED TO YOU, and you people are so ungrateful you cant even take the couple of seconds to read the warnings and instructions that come with the software that took these people DAYS/WEEKS/MONTHS to create.

    And people wonder why GeoHotz left the scene...

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!READ OUT---------------------------------------------

    sometimes I think its just me or this forum.... I read on other forums and websites that the Jailbreak has already been done for 4.2.1..since it came for the DEV only.. and also that they manage to JB it cause there was nothin special about it..
    And now come MMI with that ther eis no JB for 4.2.1 ?

    WHATT? I think MMi needs to check their writers.. sometimes this forum is VERY late with NEWS whyle other website like Engadget or other Forums are 1 day early with the news...
