Need help with Verizon 4.2.7
I'm new to the Iphone world and I'm kind of lost. I want to jailbreak my phone using the new untethered break from snowbreeze. I guess to do it I need to jailbreak it first as tethered using redsn0w. I for the life of me can not find where I can download redsn0w for Verizon. Anyone out there no where I can get a link. I've searched here, youtube, google and I can't find one that works. I am using Windows seven and again my phone is with Verizon. Thanks to all.

You don't need redsn0w to jailbreak the iphone. Unless you would rather have a tethered version. Untethered is the best.
use that link to jailbreak your phone. Hope this helps.

He's right you don't need tethered jb first just download snowbreeze, the 4.2.7 firmware from apple drop it into the snowbreeze app it make a jb version of the firmware follow the instructions on how to place in DFU mode. Tell iTunes to restore with custom firmware few minutes later you are jailbroken free to Theme up and tweak up

Does it take a while to download the 4.2.7 firmware? I've been at it for almost twenty minutes and the page is still white? I am so frickin frustrated. I've googled several places to get this file and I can't. Any help is greatly appreciated.

here and followed their tutorial. At first I tried to set it up with Snowbreeze, but since I have a Mac I tried it on my Windows virtual machine. It was so slow I gave up. I ended up using a tethered redsn0w jailbreak and then once it was jailbroken I downloaded some thingy from cydia that made it untethered. It's all there in the link, though. It's greatly helpful!

4.2.6 or 4.2.7
Secondly, I jb my ViP with greenpoison when it was at 4.2.6. I'm still at 4.2.6, so what would be the advantage/disadvantage or upgrading to 4.2.7 just so I could jailbreak again with snowbreeze??? If this latest update was just to add a security patch, why not stay at 4.2.6? There are rumors of iOS5 coming out, or wil VZW go to 4.3.2??
Any feedback will be appreicated.

I've managed to FINALLY get the firmware downloaded and saved in douments. I then saved it to my desktop. Now when I try and click and drag the file during the jailbreak process it won't work. I can drag the file but it doesnt stay in the box where I am supposed to drag it to. Am I missing something?
