    Chpwn has announced that the work to make Cydia ready for iOS 4.2 has been completed.

    esmandau: @chpwn how's Cydia for iOS 4.2 Going....! #Thanks "For Just Reading Me"

    chpwn: @esmandau In ready position.

    There are still many other reasons you may want to hold off on upgrading to iOS 4.2 though.

    What benefits are there in 4.2 for iPhone 4 users? My impression that 4.2 was "mainly" for iPad users. Is this correct?

    Sorry guys, only the 5th reply gets a prize:D
    4.2 has a few bug fixes and some cool additions but not enough to make me jump to it untill all my JB packages are updated and work fine on 4.2

    i hope 4.2 addresses the BT issue.. i think its a little better than 4.1 but still other people on the line say i sound "mechanical" when i go more than 5 feet away from my iphone 4.. i am using a 975 too.

    I thought the main two were

    Airprinting

    New SMS sounds

    All we need is when iPhone OS will come.

    hmm....if correct then not really worth the update for me. Custom SMS sounds might be nice but if it's just new SMS sounds then no.

    No problem!.... Always got to listen to the "bigBoss" :D

    If I knew that, I would have a nice pension and retirement plan from Apple Inc. (however my money is on Friday around 10 - 11 AM PST)

    Yep, I think tommorow 4.2 will be out also.
    Alot of leaks point to it.

    Was 4.1 even worth it?

    Not for some of us--no proximity sensor issue here and no use for the new features, so I'm still running 4.0. AirSharing is tempting though once they get the JB untethered.

    I have a number of apps that let me print from my iPhone, and transfer files back and forth to my computer. Do I ever actually print from my phone? No. I also don’t have the proximity issue or any issue for that matter, so I’ll probably pass on an update that may cause new problems, knowing Apple’s history lately.

    This is too funny/coincidental for me.

    I just finished upgrading from 4.0.1 to 4.1 this morning. Yeah....been meaning to do it for several weeks now.....and not enough time (takes 2-3 hours with all the music/movies I have as well as the custom theme/backgrounder/setup/entering all the passwords for apps, etc. etc. even with pkgbackup).

    But the proximity sensor issue bit me A LOT the past week, and finally had enough.

    FWIW, the proximity sensor issue seems to be much better. Sometimes I could literally watch the screen go on and off many times in a row while on a call and the phone to my ear.

    Maybe I can manage to update to 4.2 when 4.3 is about to be released....:D

    Isn't that the truth? :D

    I have printing apps too, that mostly work, and if they've really crippled AirPrint, I'll stick with them. It's being able to wirelessly play music from the phone that's tempting me badly, and folders on the iPad (Categories is pretty sketchy on that device). Still, I figure I'll be waiting quite a while yet.

    Glad to hear Cydia's ready though!

    I agree, some people are excited over airprinting.
    For the passed 3-4 years I never needed to print anything off my iphone, I highly doubt I will now.
