    So I'm heading to a friends tonight and he has a computer. I figured since you never know, that it might be smart to create a solution in the unlikely chance that I need to reboot my JB'd 4.2.1 iPad. I put the correct .ipsw file along with Redsnow on a USB Flash Drive. This should be all I need, right? He has an iPhone so the data cable is there if I need it.

    Anything else I might not be thinking about?

    Might as well put itunes 10.1 on there to complete your contingency plan.

    seems a bit extreme. I have had no issues with a reboot, knock on wood, but I do have a copy of it on my air and on idisk!

    Yup put iTunes, redsnow, and the ipsw there. Also an extra cable.

    Yeah i always over-analyze things and forecast the worst-case scenario. And this is my first experience with a tethered jailbreak. Needless to say, the night went fine and nothing was needed. But the responses got me thinking, is iTunes really necessary simply to boot tethered via redsn0w? I'm guessing the only reason it would be needed would be for the proper iPad drivers for the computer...

    That's exactly the reason.
