    Looks like we might be waiting a lot longer for the untethered jailbreak to arrive. I might have to downgrade to 4.1 and go greenpois0n again until ioS 4.3 is released and the jailbreak is final.

    well at least there is a "one-click-tethered-boot" now

    also read somewhere else that geohot may have an untethered solution for 4.2.1 but not for all devices

    What's the one click tethered boot? Is it for 4.2.1?

    The one click tethered boot is to make it easier for people that are currently on iOS 4.2.1 with a tethered jailbreak to reboot when it is required.

    I just wish I knew why my phone kept going into safe mode. I had lockinfo with activator installed, biteSMS, winterboard and Cydia and I think that's it? Anyone help?

    when did the safe mode start? after oneof your newer tweaks? Try uninstalling the tweak you last installed before the phone kept going into safe mode. One of the tweaks is causing this issue.

    It happened when I got a text and someone said it was because I had the wrong version of biteSMS

    On 4.2.1 when I installed bitesms everytime I get a text it goes into safe mode so I removed it I guess I will just have to wait for an update for it give that a try and see if that works for u

    There's a new version of Bite that fixes that. I think it's still in beta though.

    I had to uninstall sbsettings to get out of safe mode on a 3GS running 4.2.1although I think it was actually Activator (installed as part of SBS) that was causing the issue. Try that.

    ok, did some investigating and it does look like activator has been the culprit for springboard crashes when involved with iOS 4.2.1, however that was with the 1.4.1 version. we are now currently at the 1.4.6 version and i am having no issues whatsoever, although i remember with my 3G there were unexplained crashes and i had to remove activator temporarily..

    so in the short you may want to verify you are at the current version of activator and or remove it until you can find a fix

    remember, activator is part of sbsettings and you will lose this as well

    Yeah I'm running iP4 4.2.1 tethered jb, and Activator is working fine for me. I have no need for Bite, though, so I dunno about the whole text-message-causing-it-to-crash thing.

    After reading the article, it seems to me that "Comex saves untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3" is a false conclusion. Comex was asked whether the jailbreak will be ready for 4.2.1 or 4.3 and his reply was "Depends when 4.3 is out."

    So how can one conclude that he's waiting for 4.3 when he clears says that it depends?

    Might as well wait for the next release anyway at this point.

    I dont think it really matters anymore as Geohot is supposedly going to release his untethered JB for 4.2.1.
