The untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 may no longer be available by Christmas. But that does not make its release any less exciting. If what we are hearing is true, this jailbreak solution could come with a lot more sophistication than earlier releases. According to Comex from the Dev team, the upcoming untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak could come as a Cydia package. He is noted to have said on Twitter,
“it’s probably going to be a Cydia package. if I can get it to work.”
What does this mean to users? If things go right, you can simply download the jailbreak package like you would download and install any application from Cydia. Also, that would mean you will not require to perform a system restore.
Comex’s statement however does carry the disclaimer that the jailbreak tool will be offered in package form if he could “get it to work“. Nevertheless, we feel this is a great move forward and will definitely be worth the extra wait.
