    Got this off twitter from MuscleNerd:

    Mac owners willing to try out the "backup plan" of 4.2.1 untethered JB? Please see http://is.gd/jmBeQ (Happy Holidays!)

    In this case a picture is not worth a thousand words.

    I'm totally trying this out when they release it. Sweet. Of course I'll need to find 4.2b3 though. The build is 8C5115c.

    [EDIT]
    Found it with some more advanced Google skills. :D

    Using good keywords, searching by specific site and making sure certain words were near others is what did the trick. I'll admit before doing those three together all I could find was posts related to SHSH's.

    I'm sure it'll start showing up as torrents after the tool is released.

    Pardon my ignorance, since I'm new to the whole Apple scene, but what? Apple sells that stuff?

    Sort of. $99 is for a Developer account which grants you access to the iOS builds, among other things.

    Oh,ok. Got it. :)

    I got lucky and TU saved me an iphone4-4.2b3.shsh file.
    But I think I'll probably wait for the comex jb.

    Hmm, Cydia has 4.2b3 saved for my iPhone, but I don't seem to have the IPSW saved to my Mac. I must have deleted it at some point. Oh well, I'll wait for Comex's jailbreak.

    Edit: nevermind. Google is my friend.

    You wont run the Beta firmware, you will just use the IPSW file for the JB.

    But the JB is itself a Beta! So by running the Beta he's running Beta software, though perhaps not running Beta firmware.

    General question: If one downloads the 4.2b3 and the updated Redsn0w when the dev team releases it, is that all one needs to do the untethered jailbreak or do we need something more, like having some SSH's saved in Cydia? What if I never installed Cydia or a jailbreak before and want to do this for the time time? Will it work with the two files (redsnow and 4.2b3)?

    A couple of questions.

    Back when I run TU it saved 2 files. xxxxxxxx-iphone4-4.2.1.shsh & xxxxxxx-iphone4-4.2b3.shsh
    Those are the so called blobs right? They were both about 60KB in size.
    I see from some links given in this thread the file iPhone3,1_4.2_8C5115c_iphone4_Restore.ipsw which is about 625MB

    So did I do something wrong back when I run TU or did it also save a .ipsw on my pc in another location?

    If I were to use the jailbreak that requires the beta blob, does the 60KB file I saved do the job or do I need to get the .ipsw from the links as well?

    Yes, but just the beta kernel to allow for the untethered part.

    Sorry I dont mean to be ignorant but what if its not a torrent..?
    We have been linking to hard to find semi public ispw's for devs to prep/use the next jailbreak.
    Thanks
