Untethered Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch, iPad [Greenpois0n]

Recently, we had shown you how to get Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 with redsn0w. The method required you to have previous SHSH blobs saved and was pretty complex. Now with Greenp0ison, Untethered jailbreak iPhone 4, 3G iOS 4.2.1 is fairly easy as it does NOT require SHSH blobs for iOS 4.2b3.

Before you continue:

  • Supported devices: iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G 3G 2G, iPhone 3GS (any bootrom), iPad on iOS 4.2.1
  • Greenpois0n recommends a clean iOS 4.2.1 restore. However, if you depend on unlock, do NOT update to iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 because UltraSn0w doesn’t support new basebands yet. iPhone 4 users can update to iOS 4.2.1 while preserving baseband with Tinyumbrella.
  • Tethered 4.2.1 redsn0w Jailbreakers can just run greeenpois0n over it for untethered jailbreak. In case you run into problems, restore.
  • Greenpois0n  jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 OTB (out of the box) iPod Touch, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 3G

    GreenPois0n always restored my iPhone 3Gs. I DO NOT recommend this for an iPhone 3Gs 4.2.1.
