    actually its on Ipod 4g, but that forum is really dead compared to this one and i'm pretty sure they use the same or close to same firmware updates right?

    check out the jailbreakmatrix.com and/or clarified.com. These sites give you all tutorials you need on jailbreaking.

    I've found both 4.3.2 and 4.3.3 to be stable on my iPhone4. Not sure about the ipod.

    Don't know where you're getting your information, but SBSettings is fine on all recent versions.

    Everything is good on 4.3.3. I upgraded the other day from 4.3.1 and it seems a bit more stable and little faster. If I were you I'd update to 4.3.3. When I had 4.3.1 I wished I'd stayed on 4.2.1 but it's much better now (and the ringer switch works properly!).

    I thought my ringer switch issues were solved on 4.3.3, but they came back. Not a deal-breaker for me though.

    Redsn0w uses on the latest 4.3.3. Greenpois0n will not work.

    Stick with 4.2.1. The 4.3.x firmwares are too buggy, jittery, and slow. Theres nothing you are missing out on with the new firmwares. Just leave well enough alone. I've gone back to 4.1 twice now after crashes, freezes, hangup, jittery animations, etc on 4.3.

    I've got three iPhones running 4.2.1 on two of them and the other one running 4.3. I'm not really huge on updating to the latest and greatest because of bugs and stuff but I haven't really heard too many bad things about 4.3.3. I think this release fixed a lot of the bugs from 4.3, 4.3.1 and 4.3.2.

    4.2.1 was good for me except for the battery life.

    4.3.1 was buggy as hell (lags, crashed on apps, and the vibrate switch issue that everyone got)

    I'm on 4.3.3 right now and it's actually alright.
