    Also do i have to be on that current version, and if i later upgrade to a later version of an unbroken update will it then unjailbreak me?

    Also what is the difference per jailbreak, i know they all have their different names but what do the others have to offer compared to this one.

    Yes, you can go up to 4.2.7 and use that snowbreeze version to JB it.
    If you upgrade later to stock firmware or restore to stock firmware thru itunes you will lose the JB that's all.
    All JB tools accomplish the same, JB the device. Some are better at it and other ones are buggy.

    Yes, updating will get rid of the jailbreak. All jailbreaks install Cydia. I've noticed that some jailbreaks are more stable than others.

    Question. Is this an official Dev-Team jailbreak?

    This guy is NOT part of the iphone dev team. Use at your own risk!

    which ones should i look out for, the ones that are from the iphone dev team and where do those people originate from and why trust them over these snowbreeze people?

    Those guys originate from the internet:D
    But since there is no other untethered JB for the cdma 4.2.7 firmware I'd give it a shot. If its unstable you can always restore to official firmware and wait for a new JB from The Dev Team.

    I've used sn0wbreeze for 4.2.1 onwards and they've all been fine.

    I think one of his early releases had some issues and that turned some people off from it. Of course Dev-Team's JBs have permanently whacked a lot of people's GPS yet they don't catch the same heat. Weird.

    I think a lot of that happens when people try to unlock not jailbreak.

    That happens when the ipad baseband is installed on the 3G and 3GS iphone in order to unlock and the warning about losing GPS function and the ability to restore to official firmware is given.
    Its up to the user to choose to go for it or not.

    You are correct it was the unlock - not the jailbreak - from around the end of 2010 (the Dev-Blog post was called "Ultra-Recycle") that killed GPS.

    Also when you jailbreak does it swipe the phone or will it keep my applications?
