iOS 4.2.1 Gold Master jailbroken a few hours after Developer Release

Apple announced the developer release of iOS 4.2.1 Gold Master edition, for iPhone 4 , 3GS, 3G and iPod Touches, a few hours ago.

And already, Redmond Pie has announced that this version can be jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.9.6b2. However, there is a heads-up for those of you who plan to do this immediately.

Cydia, the un-official App Store in Jailbroken devices, won’t work on the jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 . This is mainly becase Apple has changed a few APIs that Cydia uses, because of which you will find that all the application does is , crash.

However, the new and improved Cydia is already ready and will be available to “jailbreakers” as soon as iOS 4.2.1 GM is available to mere mortals (a.k.a. general public)

Now, from personal experience, I can say that make sure you have Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 handy with you when you make the release alongwith 0.9.6b2.  This is because when I tried to jailbreak my iPhone 3G running iOS 4.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 as per the Redmond Pie site, it gave me an error … something about “unable to patch the Kernel”.

After reading a few forums, I dug out the fix : Jailbreak with Reds0w 0.9.6b1 rather than 0.9.6b2 !!!
