    Unfortunately there isn't an official jailbreak for 4.2.1 yet was supposed to be out before today but it hasn't been made available yet .... So just hold on and it should be out shortly

    Welcome to the iPhone family. You will not miss BlackBerry. I had the Bold 9000 and then the Bold 9700 before my iPhone 4.

    use redsnow itis tethered though an untethered jailbreak was released today but its not safe as noneb of the music apps work when you use the untethered jailbreak so stick to the tethered jailbreak

    Hey glad to see all these noobs joining up Welcome, just incase you're wondering tethered means everytime your phone needs to be rebooted it must be plugged in to a computer because you will need to re-jailbreak it. This is why most people prefer untethered. I would say wait for the untethered version to be patched and upgraded. If it's already out I'm sure it wont take long.
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

    I was just about to ask what the difference was, thanks for clearing that up... im going to take your advice and wait it out. Im still playing around with my device and getting familiar with it anyways =]

    Wat? This is completely inaccurate.

    As stated before, Redsn0w is available, but i agree with the PITA factor of it...especially if you're unfamiliar with the iPhone at a basic level yet (but you'll get the hang of it ). Waiting for the untethered JB would be your best bet.

    And welcome!
