    figured i would try.. i contacted the writer of the jb guide to ask some questions.. i have redownloaded the bundle.. and tried again.. restoring back to 3.2.2 using tiny umbrella every time..

    i figured i would post this and see if anyone with more JB knowledge would try and fill in the gaps in this guide.. like how to install SSH on to your ipad with our ssh access. HA

    You need to show package contents of pwnage tool and add the bundle.
    it will not find 4.2.1 without it.

    Any luck with getting the Cydia working? All the guides say that you need to have open SSH and APT enabled on the iPad .. how can you do that without installing them in cydia???

    Why are you still trying this method. Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 was released to jailbreak iPad on 4.2.1. It is a tethered jailbreak though.

    I try to following Redmond pie instruction but when I can't get to Step 5: Navigate to Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/ and paste iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148.bundle file in this location and then simply close this folder.

    I can not paste ipad1,1_4.2.1_8C148.bundle file in the FirmwareBundles file. It would not let me to drag and drop into firmwareBundles file.

    Please help

    I had the same problem with not being able to copy the bundle into the folder. I just made a copy of the pwnagetool folder and that worked. For some reason the permissions on the original were read only and I couldn't change it. I hope this helps.
