    You have an iPad1, so it's the first link. The second set of links are for the iPad2 if you look more closely...

    Also, I would strongly recommend upgrading to 4.3.3 now unless you have a very good reason not to.
    4.3.3 is stable and the vast majority of JB tweaks are compatible. I believe that if you stay on 4.2.1 now you are just storing up a more difficult upgrade for the future...
    Your choice, but going to 4.3.3 then jailbreaking with redsn0w would be my advice.

    You are on 4.3.3 are you not Marie? I am sure I remember the upgrade. You were on 4.3 tethered, then we got you onto 4.3.3 untethered and agreed we could just leave you there as long as you were happy...

    4.2.1 is really old now... You don't have that, I'm sure of it.

    If you still have 4.3.2 or even 4.3.1, that's not a big issue. The changes were minor in the grand scheme of things.
