    Stay on 4.2.1 unless you can put up with a tethered jailbreak. If you're not sure what a tethered jailbreak means, definitely stay on 4.2.1.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    Then just grab redsn0w 0.9.6b5 from the web and jailbreak.
    If you're not sure how, google for a tutorial.
