    I'm sure once Comex completes his untethered jailbreak it will be packaged into something just as simple as limera1n or greenp0ison was. First order of business is to get a bug free untether working though!
    redsn0w is also quite easy to use, although its not a "one click" and can confuse newbies, but there are plenty of youtube videos to show you the steps...

    I read last night that he thinks he may be waiting until the Verizon iPhone comes out to release his untethered JB.

    I would use redsnow but from my understanding u need a Mac and shsh blobs.

    I bought this iPad and it had 3.2 on it (I got it only 3 weeks ago) if I woulda knew better I woulda jail broke it then but I thought there was a jailbreak for 4.2.1 :p

    Yes, you won't have an untether option at the moment because you don't have the right blobs.
    Your only option is tethered redsn0w, although a lot of folks have found that it is not as bad as it sounds. You rarely need to reboot an iPad once the initial Cydia core installations have gone through. I've only rebooted a couple of times in the last few months.

    I'm still on 3.2.2, and my pc is windows. I've been trying to figure out the the best option for jailbreaking 4.2.1, but with all the diff betas, and I've read reports of things not working after (gps, 3g, bluetooth) what can I use to jailbreak 4.2.1 right now on windows and not have anything screwed up or lose any functionality after?
