At last the masterpiece for which we all were waiting is now in our hands. Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 is just released by Dev team. Best part of it is that it supports Cydia while working with iOS 4.2.1.
Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 uses the Geohot’s Limera1n bootrom exploit that has already pawned all iOS devices for life. Only bad thing about the Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 is that it do tethered jailbreak that means, you have to enter into a “Jailbroken state” for every reboot. This condition is only for the latest devices like iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPad, iPod Touch2G(MC Model),3G and 4G where as the old devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (Non-MC Model) can be untethered jailbreak with the help of the Redsn0w 0.9.6b4. till the time other famous softwares and tools rise up with untethered hack for iOS 4.2.1, this jailbreak for latest devices will be untethered or at least semi-tethered.
Now lets talk about the jailbreaking of iOS 4.2.1 using the Redsn0w 0.9.6b4
As I mentioned in my last post related to jailbreaking iOS4.2.1 using Redsn0w 0.9.6b3 that jailbreaking process is same in all versions of Redsn0w, so you can follow the step by step guide of jailbreaking iOS 4.2.1 using Redsn02 0.9.6b2 from the link given below.
Only change is in STEP 3 that you have to download the latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 from the link given below and have to use it.
extra thing to mentions here is Step 7
This step is only for iPhone 4, 3GS (New Bootrom), iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G, iPad ONLY:
Only thing to remember in future is that whenever you want to SSH into your device, you must have to run your device in the so called “jailbroken state” on every reboot by selecting “Just boot tethered right now” option in Redsn0w 0.9.6b4.
