    Exclamation RedSn0w 0.9.6b4 is out! Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 (Mac / Win)
    Be careful, read the "Thanksgiving" post on Dev-Team Blog

    Unlockers STAY AWAY FROM THIS! This will only jailbreak the device, but it will also update your baseband - UNLOCKERS STAY AWAY. If you just need to jailbreak your device, and want to run 4.2.1, on a device older than an iPhone 4, then the new version of Redsn0w is available.

    Links for Mac and Windows packages are now there. Ultrasn0w will be updated soon, so as of Tuesday 11/23 AM, you can jailbreak, but cannot unlock as yet. READ THE POST if you are an iPhone 4 user. Heck, just read it anyway.

    Worked fine on my i4. I don't mind a tethered jailbreak for the time being.

    It has been updated for 4.2.1 but a lot of the packages in cydia still need updating.

    I guess I'm not touching anything until PwnageTool is updated, so I can unlock my 2 3GSs (4.1, 05.14.02).

    BTW, both of these units have an OLD bootrom. Can I downgrade anything on them because of this? Like the baseband maybe? ;-)

    x98car, this is tethered right for 4.2.1? Is this for all devices or just new boot phones and iP4 and new iPod Touches?

    When I jail broke throw greenpois0n was that a tethered break. I didn't think it was but all of the sudden the Cydia app disappeared and I had trouble with the mobile substrates because I never got the Cygets to function or unlock to place them in order? Does that mean it is a tethered JB and if so how do I get the Cydia apps back?

    That's very strange as Greepois0n is unteathered. Try going through greenpois0n again to reinstall Cydia.

    so i just updated to 4.2.1 and i DO need to unlock but basically what your saying is i should wait? ive only jailbroken once before so im kinda wet behind the ears.

    basically do i wait for an unlock/jb to be released before i even think about jailbreaking again?

    You probably should've waited for the unlock before updating. But hopefully it will be out soon. Once jailbroken you should be able to just install the unlock so you won't have to re-do the jailbreak again.

    Yes, it will. You can use Redsn0w to jb and be sure to select upgrade your baseband to 6.15.xx so you can unlock. Remember, this voids your warranty and you cannot downgrade your baseband if ever you need to take it to Apple.

    What options did you select in Redsn0w? Like when it asks you to select Cydia, multitask, wallpaper, etc...

    You didn't checkmark the baseband upgrade so you can unlock? Well that shouldn't matter, it should work anyway. Try also selecting the baseband upgrade. Also be sure you're using the stock 4.2.1 fw. Get it at felixbruns.de just to be sure, the firmwares from that site are great and works.
