    Hello, as the title says, I'm looking for the best jailbreaking method for my carrier unlocked phone. I've narrowed it down to Redsn0w and JailbreakMe, but I heard the latter isn't as stable or reliable. I'm currently on 4.3.3 and don't mind staying on this firmware. Can users chime in? Thanks.

    Greenpois0n doesn't work on iOS 4.3.3. But, on my personal scale of stability and such, it ranks 3rd. After PwnageTool (1) and redsn0w (2).

    I have to disagree; If you are a new person in the jb world I recommend jailbreakme if not then redsn0w, since it is the most stable.

    My factory unlocked iphone is jailbroken via jailbreak me and it's as stable as can be.

    I prefer Redsn0w but if you're new to jailbreaking, I recommend jailbreakme. However with jbme, when you respring after installing something, you'll have an annoying little spinner in the middle of the screen until you swipe on the home screen.

    The latest Greenpois0n is for 4.2.1 untethered.

    I am on Factory unlocked iPhone 4 - 4.2.1 that was JB by GreenPoison when only Green Poison supported it.

    Question can I / should I JB again using RedSnow? Issues? Pros & Cons?

    No, you dont JB again the same JB firmware unless you restore or update to a newer version.

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I went ahead and chose Redsn0w as I've had problems with Jailbreakme in the past, notably the pixel marks whenever the device turns on. More work but so far so good.

    Those pixel marks are the things that make jailbreakme 2 work. They are the actual jailbreak code bits. Its in the framebuffer that comex chose to store the code.
