UPDate: Attention! We've received info, that Apple stopped signing iOS 4.2 for devices for which iOS 4.3 is available. This means you will not be able to restore to 4.2.1 without saved SHSH keys.
UPDATE: Please, consider reading our Jailbreak & Unlock FAQ, especially if you have questions or troubles.
Using this tutorial you will be able to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 running on iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad. Pwnagetool will also preserve baseband version if you need carrier unlock. If you have updated the baseband to version 06.15, you can use this tutorial. This tutorial uses PwnageTool 4.2 for Mac OS X.
We are not developers of jailbreak utilities, so we cannot assure that everything will work just fine. However we tried this tutorial on several devices and succeeded.
We will use iPhone 4 in our jailbreak tutorial. The process is the same for all devices.
Make a folder called "Pwnage" on the desktop. Download a couple of things:
According to German website Macerkopf.de, in early April Apple will hold a media event to introduce iOS 5 and revamped MobileMe services, widely expected to become a free syncing service offered by Apple for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch owners. The event would probably take place on Apple's campus in the 14th or 15th week of the year, the first or second week in April. This is line with Apple's pattern. For example, last year's iOS 4 event took place on April 8th at the company's headquarters in Cupertino. It would make a lot of sense if Apple did the same this year with iOS 5 as well.
GadgetsDNA reports that a radical new design is in the works for iPhone 5. According to a Chinese source, Apple will be moving back to an aluminum casing, just like old iPhone 2G.
The antenna will also be redesigned which means Apple will also be abandoning the current external iPhone 4 antenna design.
Here's some machine translated quote:
Apple released the golden master version of iOS 4.3 to developers. The public release of the operating system is set to come out on the 11th March together with the release of the iPad 2. The update is available in versions for the iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, the iPad 2 will ship with iOS 4.3 installed. Typically a gold master issued to developers is identical to the version that eventually becomes the final release.
Alongside the new iPad 2 Apple yesterday released iTunes 10.2 that officially introduces support for iOS 4.3, even despite the fact that iOS 4.3 doesn't launch publicly until March 11th. The update also brings an improved home sharing feature to share libraries with iOS devices running iOS 4.3.
What's new in iTunes 10.2
Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.3.
Improved Home Sharing. Browse and play from your iTunes libraries with Home Sharing on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.3.
During yesterday’s iPad 2 media event Apple announced that the new iOS 4.3 is to be released on March 11th.
"With more than 160 million iOS devices worldwide, including over 100 million iPhones, the growth of the iOS platform has been unprecedented," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "iOS 4.3 adds even more features to the world's most advanced mobile operating system, across three blockbuster devices-iPad, iPhone and iPod touch-providing an ecosystem that offers customers an incredibly rich experience and developers unlimited opportunities."
iOS 4.3 will include a number of new features such as:
The author of Daring Fireball blog John Gruber suggested in one of his latest posts that the next-gen iPad will get a carbon fiber body instead of usual aluminum body.
"I could publish things I'm only half-sure about, like the iPad 2 switching from aluminum to a lightweight high-strength carbon fiber body, but I don't, because I'm only half sure and I've only heard about it from second-hand sources who themselves are unsure about it".
Along with new Macbook Pros yesterday Apple also released FaceTime for Mac.
Its latest beta-version became available back in October and allowed users who entered their Apple ID to chat with other users of Macs, iPhone 4 or iPod 4G.
The new version of application now supports 720p video, which can be made with the FaceTime HD camera in fresh MacBook Pros. The standard-definition camera on most other Apple devices can offer VGA-quality for Mac-to-Mac video calls.

Apple stopped to support original iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G starting from iOS 4.0. Their decision was justified because of the low RAM and sow CPU in these first-gen devices released back in 2007.
iPhone jailbreak community has now come up with a mod, which brings the complete look and feel of iOS 4.2.1 for iPhone 2G, 3G and iPod touch 1G and 2G. The mod is basically based on the iPhone OS 3.1.3, to replicate the experience of iOS 4 on the first and second generation iPhone and iPod touch.
This custom firmware, named WhiteD00r, includes everything from iOS 4.x: wallpapers, new semi transparent dock (and UI), backgrounds, all new icons from iOS 4.x, Voice Control, multitasking, video recording, and more. Full list of features can be found
Moreover WhiteD00r was also relased for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G. Regular iOS 4.х works really slow, on these devices, while modified 3.1.3 has much more chances.
WhiteD00r custom 4.2.1 firmware for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 1G and iPod touch 2G can be downloaded from
Here is a video of it in action:

Yesterday Apple has unveiled its new App Store subscription service, which allows publishers to offer recurring billing.
When The Daily was presented last month, the same digital billing service was launched along with it, but then Eddy Cue, who is an Apple's iTunes chief, said that more details on the subscription service will be revealed in the near future, and that is finally happened.
