iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak with updated redsn0w now out and available

November 23, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

Steve Jobs surely is not enjoying this year with jailbreaks for Apple devices hitting left, right and central on a weekly basis. It was a matter of days before the jailbreak for Apple TV came out after the actual set hit the market and it is the pace of the jailbreak that seems to be worrying the top heads at Apple more than the fact that they actually happen. The latest news continues to dampen the year for the king of Apple-land with a new redsn0w version 0.9.6b4 jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1.

The jailbreak is based on Geohot’s Limera1n bootrom exploit and this should come in handy for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G or iPhone 3GS users. The Apple products running the older bootrom should work with the latest jailbreak update.

The 4.2.1 jailbreak is currently “tethered”. While this might be something that those who are very familiar with the ins and outs of device jailbreaks might consider, if you are just expecting to click on a link and get it done, then better leave it for now.

The news is that a new updated version of Ultrasn0w that will work on the devices with older bootrom is expected to be out in a week’s time. So you might want to wait a bit longer to ensure that you do not dabble with something that you are not very comfortable with.
