    I was wondering if I update my i4 to iOS 4.2 GM, will I still be able to use Cydia? I've been reading that it doesn't at this time.

    Don't believe so until they are able to JB 4.2,

    Thanks for the reply. Isn't Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 the jailbreak for iOS 4.2?

    Redsn0w can indeed jailbreak 4.2. The exploit used will break all current and future firmware for current devices. Unless you're a developer for jailbreak apps though, there's not much point since it breaks Cydia. It seems they're hard at work right now making Cydia compatible with 4.2. I'm sure it will work soon.

    You're right, Roo. I found this interesting article on the subject. It seems a lot of apps aren't even compatible with 4.2 yet, including Cydia.

    I am jailbroken on 4.1. Is there really any reason to upgrade to 4.2 and then rejailbreak?

    4.2 is going to have a lot of improvements and new features. I'm still running 4.0 jailbroken and I'm not going to upgrade until 4.2. Then I'll re-jailbreak.

    According to Saurik, only tethered jailbreaks are possible with 4.2 and limera1n or greenpois0n and anyone wanting to upgrade to 4.2 should hold off until untethered is possible and that Cydia will work with 4.2 according to Saurik

    Thanks for the reply. I'm going to stay with 4.0 until everything is upgraded.

    I'm Jailbroken on 4.1, but the new updates in 4.2 sound useful... one in particular, is the ability to adjust volume tone for games and phone alerts seperately. By that I mean, when im playing a game i can turn the volume down if need be and wont have to worry about remembering to turn it back up to hear my phone ring or alarm go.

    C'mon apple, this was common sense.
