    Yesterday Dev-team released a untethered 4.2.1 jailbreak, anyone try it on your iPad?

    If you were currently on a tethered jb,
    did you have to reinstall app store and/or cydia apps?

    I was not on a tethered. But the tool produces a custom firmware and makes you put the iPad into DFU mode so you have to "Restore". But then I think you can reapply a backup to get the app store apps back and Cydia has a pkg backup program you can use. I chose to set everything new again.

    Perfectly from what starting point ?

    Anyone try to just Shift Update the firmware on a tethered JB 4.2.1 iPad?

    Dont want to risk losing all my apps and related files.

    My iPad was already jalbroken with 4.2.1 but I wanted to start over again, so I used pwnage tool 4.2 to create a custom ipsw, then loaded it in iTunes.

    I used GreenPoison yesterday on my previously tethered iPad. Worked great and I did not have to reinstall any apps.

    The OP is talking about PwnageTool.... with this you have to restore. If you do not want to restore, just use GreenPois0n.

    I used it to JB my iPad a couple of days ago, all went well without any issues. Very happy with it :)

    The same here, no issues to report. Everything is working as it should be, I'm happy with it as well.

    I just did the jailbreak and everything works great. I do have one issue though, I can't find the Mail, Contacts, Calendar tab in the settings. Any ideas?

    I fixed the problem. I use an Poof to hide some apps and when I unhid the my contacts and mail application, it came back. So it wasn't an issue with the jailbreak.

    The jailbreak is working just great!
