How to Jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 GM on iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPod touch with Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 [Guide]

Apple today has released iOS 4.2.1 GM for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPad and iPod touches. This build which is currently available to developers only can be jailbroken using the current version 0.9.6b2 of Redsn0w. For those of you who don’t know, Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 is based on Geohot’s Limera1n exploit which can pwn all iOS devices for life.

I have tested jailbreak of iOS 4.2.1 on my iPhone 4 and can confirm that it works. Though Cydia wont work just yet because Apple has changed some of the private APIs used by Cydia in iOS 4.2.x because of which Cydia crashes when you try to run. The good news is that an iOS 4.2.1 compatible version of Cydia is ready and will go live as soon as iOS 4.2.1 is released to public. Also since you have full root access on the device, you can install jailbreak-apps via SSH for now until the new version of Cydia is live.

Now until the new version of Cydia is live.

Cydia on iPhone 4, running iOS 4.2.1

Supported devices are:
iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G
iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G

NOTE: Those of you who rely on a carrier unlock MUST STAY AWAY from iOS 4.2.1.

Follow the step by step instructions posted below to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 GM release with Redsn0w 0.9.6b2:

Step 1: Download iOS 4.2.1 GM & iOS 4.1 (required for Redsn0w 0.9.6b2) for your version of iOS device.

Step 2: Update/Restore to iOS 4.2.1 firmware using the IPSW file you just downloaded via iTunes 10.1.

Step 3: Start Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 and point it to iOS 4.1 (Final Version, NOT iOS 4.2.1) to proceed with the jailbreak.



Step 4: Now select “Install Cydia” and click “Next”. Optionally (if available), you can also select any other option you like.



Step 5: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click “Next”.


At this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will have to quickly hold “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold “Home” button too. Now after few seconds release “Power” button but keep holding “Home” button until installation begins.

Step 6: Sit back and enjoy while redsn0w will do all the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone or iPod touch will restart automatically and you will find it jailbroken on the latest iOS 4.2.1 firmware.
