    cheers, is this any good or is worth waiting for the others to come up with a crack for 4.2

    redsn0w is a tethered jb im running it on both ipad and ip4, works very well but you have to keep the batteries fully charged , until comex sorts an untethered jb out that is ,plug it in to the comp to see what fw its on

    All iPhones, iPods and ipads tell you to plug into iTunes when they are new. Because you have to do the initial setup. It has got iOS you will just have to set it up before you can see what version is on it. If it's a new device it will more than likely be on 4.1 (don't update to 4.2 just yet) get it setup then jailbreak with either limer1an or greenpois0n both are very easy to use. (both for 4.1 are un-tethered) after you have jailbroke it click on cydia an make shaw you click (MAKE MY LIKE EASIER). Apple will not be signing SHSH blobs for much longer. It's very important that you get the shsh's saved. They will allow you to downgrade in the future if u need to! I have a 3GS an a 4 both on 4.1 jailbroke with limera1n and a iPad on 4.2.1 jailbroke with redsn0w (tethered). Hope this helps.
