    I'm really hoping one doesn't require blobs. I REALLY need to swap out my iPhone 4. My power button is recessed and gives next to no feedback but I don't want to swap it and risk getting an iPhone with 4.2.1 pre-installed. Sigh... it's a 50/50 chance I'm not willing to take.

    I've taken it apart and fixed it and it just does it again after a day or so.

    *crosses fingers for a no blob solution soon*
    why not just order a new button. then you get to keep your phone

    So since you can't wait any longer, what now? Will your iPad turn into an Android-based tablet? Will you get leprosy?
    What an epic first post! hahahaha

    I'll be happy as can be when this finally comes out but not in a huge rush since im JB on 4.2.1. Yeah it's tethered but since doing it I have rebooted twice on my own while at home to install something. It's been easy to maintain and deal with.

    And that comment had what merit?
    ...to simply relax and let it all happen when it does. If it is required sooner, then just go for the redsn0w tethered solution for now as I have and when the untethered option becomes available, move over to that.

    But to carry on with the same comment that has been said over and over again in this thread (let alone countless others) seems a little childish.

    Anyway, hopefully nobody mysteriously gets leprosy from their inability to be patient.

    How did you fix it? Is the switch still intact on the PCB? From what you're saying, it sounds like it actually needs to be replaced.

    I hope it comes out soon as I just had my phone replaced tonight. It came with 4.1, but with the 4.2 JB around the corner I'm just going to install the new software now and wait rather than doing everything twice.
    And now it really doesn't matter as I can't save my 4.1 blobs for the new phone. Guess I'll have to go back to the vanilla flavor for a while.

    Yes, we just have to wait. Before Christmas.
    But, doesn't he need to have his old SHSH blobs from a jailbroken device to be able to jailbreak with this method?

    You could have used TinyUmbrella to save your 4.1 blobs before you upgraded to 4.2.1.

    @Musclenerd made a comment that the untethered 4.2.1 JB might not rely on the 4.1 blobs.

    Never hurts to have your blobs saved though.

    Better safe than sorry!

    Can you still save 4.1 blobs? I thought Apple stopped signing those a few days ago. I could be wrong, however....

    No, Apple stopped signing them. Usually they stop signing within a week after a new firmware is released...

    I have my blobs for my original iP4, but last night it wouldn't turn on or respond to any actions so I had it replaced. Due to Apple not signing 4.1 anymore I upgraded to 4.2.1 knowing the untethered JB is hopefully just around the corner.

    I'm in the same situation sort of. I just restored my phone back to stock with 4.2.1 because my Home button completely failed. I had to swap mine out with the Genius Bar. Loving the new phone and really liking the stock OS speed but miss so many of the conveniences. I have been trying to convince myself I am not going to jailbreak again but I know deep down inside I probably will when the untethered option comes back.

    finally made the jump to the iP4 but unfortunately it came loaded with iOS 4.2.1

    coming from the 3G to this is like night and day! AMAZING!

    i am definitely having fun with this for now but i will be looking forward to an untethered jailbreak (hopefully) for sure...

    i'm rockin' the "spell" text tone for now haha!

    I'm kinda curious as what happened to "shatter" that was announced awhile back that was supposed to be only fixable through a hardware revision.

    They are saving it so Apple won't know what to fix in a new hardware design in case it will work on the next series of iDevices.
