How to Jailbreak recent iOS 4.2.1 with latest Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 [Step-by-Step Guide]

You can now jailbreak recent iOS 4.2.1 with latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 currently released by the iPhone Dev Team. It is really the only suitable jailbreak comfortable with Cydia functionality and MobileSustrate for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 4.2.1. We find it beneficial to introduce Redsn0w for our readers who have just entered in the dynamic world of Apple’s products and are a little bit shy to jailbreak their iOS devices. Basically, Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 makes use of our favorite MAJT ( Master of all jaibreaking Tools-our created name) Limera1n  bootroom exploit which is efficient to jailbreak  all present iOS devices once and forever.

But you have to boot Limera1n in a Jailbreak status for every reboot process i.e it is a tethered jailbreak. This status only occurs when you use Redsn0w 0.9.64b with newish models of iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 2G (MC Model), iPod touch 3G and the iPod touch 4G. The previous oldie models as iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (Non-MC Model) don’t face this situation i.e latest version of  Redsn0w 0.9.64b  is an untethered jailbreak for these devices .

CAUTION! If you rely on CARRIER UNLOCK, NEVER TRY Redsn0w & iOS 4.2.1 on your device.
