    I can confirm it does work, but since it is pwnagetool based it is Mac only. I would not recommend anyone tries this themselves unless they understand the process which is described on redmondpie. It is not really for those who need their hand held at this stage.
    The end result is buggy at best, and as stated, is really only for developers of jailbroken applications who want to get a head start on compatibility issues. Many things are still broken.
    The general populous IMHO should leave it alone until a stable JB for 4.2.1 public is released in the coming weeks...
    Hope that helps.

    I've tried that but I get stuck at step 14.

    Step 14: Reboot your device in Recovery Mode, start Terminal on OS X and run the following command:

    sudo sh

    This will ask for your root password. Once you have entered the password, run the following commands:

    cd ~/Desktop/tetheredboot

    ./tetheredboot iBSS kernel

    it says somenthing about cannot find the image.

    And after that I kinda "bricked" my iPad. got it working after a few hours. so if anyone does succeed with it please let me know how to get pass that step.

    @Naty8 I did it on Mac OSX because I don't know how I can get into the package content on Windows. mayB it will be possible if you know how to do that.

    The REAL DEAL with 4.2.1 & redsn0w

    I'm sorry, but you are once again misinformed. Yesterday you posted on another thread that there was no way to jailbreak 4.2/4.2.1 for iPad - even though the devteam had already posted the new version of redsn0w for that very purpose. Today you are saying that 4.2.1 is not "stable" and "buggy at best (which is just something that you read on another website)".

    For anyone who wants ACTUAL FACTUAL information - the redsn0w jailbreak released yesterday for 4.2.1 is not buggy, and the jailbroken system is PERFECTLY STABLE, with no battery drainage or anything else of the sort. The only single issue is that you must patch cydia afterwards in order for it to work without crashing before loading.

    I have been running jailbroken 4.2.1 on my iPad, with Cydia, and have not had a single issue, nor have I noticed any bugs.

    Follow the tutorial at redmondpie and you can't go wrong. Also, since it is a GM and not a final version, you will be able to downgrade to a lower version without any trouble at all.

    Hi, no need to boot tethered using terminal. Just use the newest version of redsn0w to "boot tethered for now" instead, and you will be fine. There's a new tutorial on redmondpie that will show you. The ./tetheredboot iBSS kernel was for booting tethered from terminal before the new version of redsn0w came out, but the new version of redsn0w does the tethered boot for you.

    Whatever dude. I'm not going to apologise for another post which was at worst a few hours behind the scene and was done with the best intentions. Nor will I apologise for offering what I stated was my honest opinion at the time and guidance which was in line with what the devteam said - "PLEASE CONSIDER THIS AN ADVANCED TOPIC!! It’s not meant for the masses because it involves rather nerdy things like command lines and tar files. But for those who know how to use this new redsn0w feature, have fun!"

    Oh, and welcome to the forum...
