    I jailbroke my iphone4 v4.1 with limerain and i m very happy with it.
    After reading to most posts i get confused about this different ways to jailbreak where you need you computer to reboot etc....

    Will there be a limerain version like i have now on 4.1
    Cause i wanna upgrade my iphone for the new options to 4.2.1 but there are some apps which i would miss a lot also from cydia.

    So the dilema is waiting but will there be an easy way like limerain coming for 4.2.1 or not

    PS: i m not interested in unlocking therefore all the baseband etc.... is not a problem.

    What exactly is your question. You say your concerned about the need to connect to a computer to reboot - i.e. a thethered jailbreak.

    Well, that answers your question about upgrading, right now, that is the only way to do it. So if you want to stay unthethered do NOT upgrade to 4.2.1.

    As to whether the dev team or geohut will release a point and click, unthethered jailbreak like limera1n, well you should follow their blog. From my understanding comex of the dev team is working on an unthethed jailbreak, not sure if it will be point and click though.

    if it aint broke...etc..

    do you really need 4.2.1??

    I have a very stable, J'Broken device running 4.01...I'm very happy with it and can't see the need to go to 4.1 or even 4.2.1

    so, ask yourself...do you NEED to go to 4.2.1 or are you just one of those people that just has to have the latest all the time? in which case you might be back in a few days saying how you wish you hadn't upgraded and now can't j'b or unlock etc.

    If you have 3G or 3GS with old bootrom, you can update to untethered 4.2.1. If not, it best to wait for untethered JB.

    He already said in his OP that he has an iPhone 4 on 4.1 firmware.

    I'm curious as to which features in 4.2 you find compelling. Nothing I've seen in the changelogs really piqued my interest.
