These are instructions on how to untether your jailbreak of iOS 4.2.1 using the iPhone Dev-Team's 'backup plan' method on Mac OS X.

Currently this beta is limited to iPhone4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G. Bluetooth functionality is disabled for the time being until some issues are resolved.

Requirements:

Step One
Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop and in it place:

I appreciate what they do codeinsring that its free, but I'm fine at 4.1 for now. Why's there always a big rush for the Dev team and Geo hot to jailbreak the next firmware? Unless you just bought a new device and can't unlock its not that big of a deal. I mean Apple makes new enhancements and adds more functionality, but nothing that groundbreaking from one release to the next, at least nothing that makes me so impatient that I blog on the net complaining about not get the latest jailbreak from guys who do this entirely for free, thats just crazy. I am a little impatient for an unlock, but since tmobile changed their unlimited data plan to 200mbs I don't really care any more.

My iPad gets to the ‘pineapple’ screen where it says, ‘Installing Bundles,’ and hangs there. I think it’s some trouble with usbmuxd because I get this line in the Terminal —> File "/Users/kenny/Desktop/Pwnage/usbmuxd-1.0.6/python-client/usbmux.py", line 111, in getpacket raise MuxVersionError("Version mismatch: expected %d, got %d"%(self.VERSION,version)) MuxVersionError: Version mismatch: expected 0, got 1 Anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Omg.... You never read anything before trying? Dev-team told everyone when it was released that bluetooth aint gonna work in beta 1.

The number of steps gets more and more ridiculous every time. I'm also nervous about all of this talk of them messing with the sandboxing.
