    That's pretty cool that they are going to release it, it's going to be crazy confusing and endless threads about it, but good and easy for those who got access to those SHSHs :D

    Yep. I'm just waiting for their new version of PwnageTool. Not that I care about the unlock since I'm on AT&T but it's nice to have the option to unlock my iPhone when I sell it to get the new one.

    Same here. It's good to have the option to unlock it or sell it unlocked down the road.
    Great news.

    Yeah I used to do that, but after owning all iPhones since the original I found out that I always end up passing my iPhone away, either to my significan other at the moment, my brother or Family, My mom is rocking my original iPhone right now (I got it replace for a spanking new one since the screen broke 12 months and 2 weeks after i got it, AppleCare was out for 2 weeks but the genius was nice about it) =)

    Tell me about it, luckiest ever, I replaced it on Mississippi, I was lucky that the manager went to the same school as me back in Florida, The fact that "it Broke" when i was ...let's say intoxicated in New Orleans... I also end up dating his sister for about couple of months...overall a win win for me :cool:

    1+ there are also allot of apps in Cydia that still need updated. my guess is allot of Cydia Dev have been waiting for the untethered jb allot has been done but I think once the tethered jb comes out. We will see allot more support of 4.2.1. but being able to sell a jb/ul phone is always priceless. :D:D

    LOL, and here we go!...... ;)

    For "this" JB, and only this one (the one that is being call "the backup plan", demoed a couple of weeks back by musclenerd) you need 4.2b3 SHSHs. (however it seen to be "about" to be release, but due to jailbreaking history anything can happen on the last few hours before release, so until it is final and public, noting is for sure)

    If past is prologue, we are about due for geohot, or some other malcontent, to crawl out from whatever rock they are now under to try and screw things up.

    While it's still a little early to know for sure, since this one is called the "backup plan", is the 4.2.1 JB going to be similar to the 4.1 JB where limera1n came out first, then greenpois0n came out a little while later? Wasn't sure if there was going to be one JB for all mankind on 4.2.1 or if another was one in tow as well? Any thoughts?

    My apologies if this is stupid Q but is "this" jailbreak only for (as of now) 4.2b3 or if it is for 4.2.1 it needs needs 4.2b3 SSH blobs saved?

    If this is true,

    I guess it will be pointless for many! How many have 4.2b3 SSH blobs saved?

    If this is wrong,

    Can someone explain me what exactly is "backup plan" etc etc

    What I want to know as well...I have my 4.2b3 blobs, but my GF won't. Is she out of luck for a untethered 4.2.1 jb?

    Yes it is TRUE

    No it is not pointless, a LOT of people have those SHSHs.

    It is the Backup Plan, because it is a complicated and somehow limited, since it is only for a limited population that got those SHSHs (that by the way, it was POSTED all over the place, right before 4.2.1 release to save those SHSH because they could be need). It is "backup" because Comex is working on another JB that it will no required those SHSHs and it will work for everyone.


    She is NOT out of luck, she just have to wait a bit longer

    I'm a bit concerned about "those with access to the 4.2b3 IPSW". I have my SHSH blobs for 4.2b3 saved on Cydia, but I don't have access to the IPSW file for it (not being a registered developer and all). Surprisingly I couldn't seem to find any torrents for it either.

    Again wait for the release.... an actual downgrade is NOT required, just the SHSH, the JB doesn't use the actual 4.2b3 firmware, it just use its kernel. (again, anything can change at release, but the version i got my hands on did no required a downgrade)

    edit: as a side note, if the IPWS is required, believe me it will easier to find that a pic of Lindsay lohan lady friend!

    Yeah, stupid me, I re-read what the dev-team posted, and saw about how the actual release was expected from comex around the 24th or so. Not much more time to wait then. I'm looking forward to free "find my iPhone" and to tinker with AirPlay a bit (mostly using the utilities that Erica Sadun has come out with, since I don't really have any other AirPlay compatible devices).
