    Question about upgrading/jailbreaking


    I have an ipad running 3.2.2 that is already jailbroken. I am waiting for the un-tethered jailbreak before I upgrade to 4.2.1. I was wondering... what is the process to upgrade and jailbreak? Do I upgrade the firmware first? Then jailbreak again?

    Step by step instructions would be great, because I am still new to all of this, but any help is appreciated!
