    You're welcome.

    EDIT: Wait, why were you even doing this again? I was under the impression you were doing it to get a non-supported phone to have the free Find My iPhone feature? You're silly.

    In the Cydia patch it says;

    Fixing Mobile Substrate:
    cd /usr/lib
    rm libsubstrate.dylib
    cp cy.zip/libsubstrate.dylib /usr/lib/libsubstrate.dylib
    chmod 755 /usr/lib/libsubstrate.dylib

    WHERE can I get libsubstrate.dylib?

    And those having problems rebooting after installing Mobile Substrate just do this;
    When it locks up after a reboot just SSH into the iDevice and goto /usr/lib
    Then delete /usr/lib/libsubstrate.dylib
    It will continue in a few seconds/mins.

    No need to reinstall iOS, just delete that file and it will work fine except anything that uses it wont work.
    But at least you can get into your iDevice and not need to reinstall.

    Is it safe to use with itunes 10.1 for jailbroken...

    Cydia hasn't been updated to work with 4.2 yet, and with good reason. I'm using it on my iPad right now, and I've had to reformat and reinstall the OS 5 times already due to certain mods nearly bricking it.

    If you REALLY want to risk it, you can find a guide on how to patch Cydia here: HOW TO: Patch Cydia on iOS 4.2.1

    Be forewarned that this process ain't blackra1n. You'll get up to your elbows in some Unix command-line.

    Also, to save anyone reading this the trouble, the things that ****** up my iPad beyond recognition were as follows:

    Winterboard: The reboot after installation (both redsn0w tethered and normal) looped until I force DFU'd it and restored with iTunes.

    Infiniboard: On reboot after install, iPad froze, and the Apple logo stared at me for over half an hour before I forced DFU and restored with iTunes.


    I've also had mixed results with SSH and SBSettings.

    Best protip I can give to anyone considering this less-than-user-friendly approach to getting your iPad jailbroken on 4.2 is to remember the proper process.

    1) Install with iTunes
    2) JB with redsn0w 0.9.6b3, Install Cydia setting
    3) As soon as it boots, turn off and re-JB with redsn0w, custom package settings (give it this package: http://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev...edirects=0&d=1)
    4) As soon as that's done, turn it off, and JB AGAIN using the "boot tethered now" option
    5) Try not to **** it up :P

    Now, for all of the things that I've had **** up iPad, [No piracy repos]. Just ignore that you can't see the text field when typing in the URL.

    For God's sake, have fun with it!

    [And somebody make me a staff writer for this site. I've been jailbreaking every version since '07 on my iPhone, I'm always on top of the latest Apple news, and I've had one of every iOS device, but have cut back to just my iPad since it meets all of my needs ]

    Is iPhone 3G working any faster with 4.2 compared to previous 4.x.y firmwares?

    Apparently the Gold Master edition seemed to show improvements.[1] If your phone is still in 3.x I would keep it there before updating. Sitting tight usually helps in situations like these.

    Oh and although it seems to be snappier on 4.2, remember, 4.0's mess was degenerative. Wait about 1-2 weeks to see if the degenerative quality the 3G has with IOS4 rears its ugly head.

    for being on top of things you should have known 0.9.6b4 is the version you want to use to JB ipad, came out before you posted. Anyway still doesnt work, cydia still crashes on ipad. Cydia has also been updated to work with 4.2 just dont think the JB is working correctly yet.
