    Cydia hasn't been updated to work with 4.2 yet, and with good reason. I'm using it on my iPad right now, and I've had to reformat and reinstall the OS 5 times already due to certain mods nearly bricking it.

    If you REALLY want to risk it, you can find a guide on how to patch Cydia here: HOW TO: Patch Cydia on iOS 4.2.1

    Be forewarned that this process ain't blackra1n. You'll get up to your elbows in some Unix command-line.

    Also, to save anyone reading this the trouble, the things that ****** up my iPad beyond recognition were as follows:

    Winterboard: The reboot after installation (both redsn0w tethered and normal) looped until I force DFU'd it and restored with iTunes.

    Infiniboard: On reboot after install, iPad froze, and the Apple logo stared at me for over half an hour before I forced DFU and restored with iTunes.


    I've also had mixed results with SSH and SBSettings.

    Best protip I can give to anyone considering this less-than-user-friendly approach to getting your iPad jailbroken on 4.2 is to remember the proper process.

    1) Install with iTunes
    2) JB with redsn0w 0.9.6b3, Install Cydia setting
    3) As soon as it boots, turn off and re-JB with redsn0w, custom package settings (give it this package: http://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev...edirects=0&d=1)
    4) As soon as that's done, turn it off, and JB AGAIN using the "boot tethered now" option
    5) Try not to **** it up :P

    Now, for all of the things that I've had **** up iPad, [No piracy repos]. Just ignore that you can't see the text field when typing in the URL.

    For God's sake, have fun with it!

    [And somebody make me a staff writer for this site. I've been jailbreaking every version since '07 on my iPhone, I'm always on top of the latest Apple news, and I've had one of every iOS device, but have cut back to just my iPad since it meets all of my needs ]
    Surely you know that when Cydia requests a 'Reboot Device' that you are playing Russian Roulette everytime you press it. Always Reboot your device using the power button.

    Even though I REALLY want to upgrade, I think I'll stick to 4.1 for a while.

    PS. Mobilesubstrate updated this morning, I would suppose that's for 4.2 support.

    Ya I have been wary about pressing that reboot button for a while now. Much safer to reboot manually.

    So far this is what I've got working
    No Lock Screen
    SBSettings
    MyOS
    PSX4all
    Wifi Analyzer
    gpsPhone
    LockInfo

    Is is what I found out doesn't work
    No Spot
    Remove Recents

    These dont work coz they need gsc.wildcat
    FullForce
    SwirlyMMS for iPad3G
    YourTube HD

    As thats all the Cydia apps I install thats all I've tried on my iPad 3G.
    As soon as MyOS is fixed so you can disable multitasking I will install backgrounder as thats better i think.

    I do believe the question asked earlier about the ringtones was ment to read text tones. There are no new text tones on the 3GS........ That kinda sux.

    Edit: sorry SMS/tones you can change them to whatever you want with the app below but u can only change it one at a time

    I dont get it.....as long as your jailbroken you can have any ringtone you want. Download directly from their server or make ringtones with any song you have in your iPod library. It's free, easy and available in Cydia been using for a long time now it's called UNLIMTONES

    Ciao!

    If you are on 4.2 then downgrading will not help you unlock. What type of iphone do you have?
