Previously released Untethered 4.2.1 Jailbreak … Chronic Dev have done it again. Wanna jailbreak your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Apple TV? Maybe you even want to jailbreak your new Verizon iPhone? If you have iOS version 4.2.1 you can finally jailbreak your device using the just released GreenPois0n 1.0 RC5 which produces an untethered jailbreak. If you are unlocked (using a non-supported phone carrier) don’t use this, as it will upgrade your baseband and re-lock your device. Otherwise if you just want to jailbreak your device so you can get Cydia and install jailbroken apps, this is the way to go. Previously you were able to use redsn0w to jailbreak to 4.2.1 but that required the cumbersome tethered approach. There was also a recent rumor about another 4.2.1 jailbreak called rubyra1n which has yet to be released.
Here’s how to download and use GreenPois0n to perform an untethered jailbreak on your iOS 4.2.1 device:
Be sure to add some sources to your new Cydia so you can find even more apps.
