If you have the iPhone 4 and used limera1n you should not update your phone, for some reason it will not let me re-install it

Are there any ways to jailbreak an iPod Touch 4g with iOS 4.2.1?

I don't get why you guys are afraid of somehow breaking it when you jailbreak it, don't you just have to restore the device and its fixed? And apple wouldn't even know it was jailbroken after.

^ This is correct. The only thing a restore doesn't fix (I believe) are significant changes you make with iFile. For example, if you delete every bit of text on accident, no amount of restoring will fix that. You have to find the original code and copy/paste it back in. Yes, this happened to me.

Nothing so far, Comex mentioned that we'd get it for Christmas or before Christmas though. That's about it.

Personally, if a simple application such as skype can tell that you're using a modified device, plugging it into a computer as the apple stores will show how many time cydia has crashed. Apple knows.

As for the untethered, they have one way already proven working(as stated by Musclenerd, shown on an ipt4G), but he said that comex is working on a better way that allows the untethering to work already. Musclenerd showed a way using the SHSH blobs from 4.2b3.

I haven't jailbroken mine yet, not that I don't want to, but I'm just trying to figure out all the possible perks inside of it. I've went through numerous sites, Youtube videos, seen the "best apps" out there which indeed sound riveting, but nothing really piqued my interest as in going "OMG i must JB it!" yet. Except maybe the Gameboy emu thing, Youtube downloading at a push but other than that.. don't know.

Any apps some mind sharing with us, that they love to bits or something? May make me reconsider down the line.

Well, this is in no way trying to convince you, but here's what I have and use almost every day.

SBSettings: If you're jailbreaking, you have to have this period. This tweak allows you to toggle your iPhone's/iPod's settings without having to go into the default Settings App and into the sub menus. It also allows you to respring quickly and also reboot your iPhone when you need it without having to hold down the Home and Power button like you usually do.

Activator: This will come packaged with SBSettings, but this tweak allows you to launch an app with a simple gesture. It could range from holding the power button, to sliding your finger upwards on the homescreen, even shaking your phone.

Winterboard: I'm sure you've heard of it and a lot of people jailbreak just for this. It allows you to completely customize the way your iPhone looks and sounds. You can change the way the icons look or you can even add nice widgets that can tell you the weather. Unfortunately for iPhone 4s and iTouch 4Gs, changing the icons can be daunting. It requires you to properly name the paths so you can have nice Retina Display icons. Thankfully though, popular themes will already have this done for you and you'll only be required to do less popular apps.

SMS GV Extension: I don't think this is all well known, but I love this tweak more than ever. I personally do not have the money to be paying $15 a month for unlimited texting. I do however like paying $30 for my unlimited data. With this, Google Voice comes into play. GV gives me a number and with it, I can sync it to my real phone number. With the GV Number I can text as much as I want because it uses my iPhone's data. Unfortunately though, to do that you need to install the GV App, which means that you'll now have yet another to open and check out your texts and what not. SMS GV Extension fixes that. Instead of using the GV App to check your texts, GV Extension will integrate GV into the native SMS App. That way, all your texts are neatly stored like they're meant to be. The extension will send and receive text messages using your GV number, and there's even an SBSettings toggle for if you want to send a message with your real phone number. It's completely free for you to try out, but you'll only be able to send text messages with your GV number. You'll need to pay a $2.99 (plus a paypal fee) license so you can receive the text messages. Totally worth it in my opinion. Read More.

biteSMS: A huge improvement over the native SMS App. This thing is so packed with features that I can't really summarize them all in here. But the huge thing you'll want this is because of it's Quick Reply function. When you receive a text message, you can actually reply back on the popup. There's no need to dismiss it and stop what you're doing, open up the SMS app and then reply. You simply reply right then and there. The next best thing about it is that this can completely replace your native SMS app with biteSMS because it'll behave like the native app as much as possible. This app is free to try out for 14 days, and after the 14 days, you can still use all of its features, but you'll have ads. To remove the ads you either buy a full license, or buy some credits, which'll give you a license for a full year.Read More.

Grooveshark: Like Pandora, but it could be better depending on who you ask. Jailbreaking is the only way to get their app though, and it's great. There's really not much to tell here.

Covert: Adds private browsing to Safari. This one is essential for those times that you do not want Safari to add those millions of porn pages that you visited in to your iPhone's history.

Cydelete: You can delete Cydia Packages from the SpringBoard. Usually when you want to uninstall a Cydia Package, you have to go into Cydia, go the Manage tab, then Packages, and then look for the package, and remove it from there. With this tweak, you can do it on the Springboard. Wiggle the icons, hit the "X" and it'll uninstall the package.

Five Icon Dock: Self explanatory. It'll allow you to have Five Icons on the dock instead of four. There's also a Six Icon Dock tweak.

iAdKiller: Hate iAds? Remove them with this.

iBlacklist: The best iPhone firewall for your calls and text messages. You can easily block a bunch of numbers here, and it can range from specific numbers, to even entire area codes. You can do this for both calls and text messages, either both or one of the other. You can also choose what you want the blocked caller to hear, which ranges from hanging up, to the busy tone, or even sending them straight to your voicemail. It's free to try for 14 days, and after that you gotta pay a $12.99 for a license. Read More.

Poof: Nearly forgot about this one. This tweak allows you to hide icons so you'll never see them again. It's integrated with SBSettings and it's good for say, hiding the native SMS Icon when you have biteSMS installed. There's also Cydia apps that you only need to configure once, and you don't need to see them ever again, and hiding them will be useful.

I think that's most of the features that I use a lot. There's a lot more, but I either find them a bit unnecessary or they don't have free trials for you to truly use the app. There's also small tweaks there like Cyntact which just adds a photo next to my contact's name so I know who it is.

ok, so I have a jailbroken ipod touch version 4.1
It was working great until I got a popup that said that I was saved by sbsetting. I was put into safe mode.
I have this 'activator' thing that lets me turn off ssh. I have turned off ssh, wifi, 3g and blue tooth. I hope this protects me from hackers.
I need to change my mobile terminal password. How do I do this? Mobileterminal crashes. I have treid everything and read many forums. I need help changing my passord.
In addition, how to I back my itouch up?
****if this is important, it won't charge of a gibbson usb-wall adaptor. It only charges on pc

No not yet there's a backup version that is goig through public beta and it's for Mac users only. To use this jailbreak though, you need need blobs from 4.2b3. If you don't have them, you need to wait for comex's version to pop up.
