    should I upgrade to 4.2 ?

    Is it safe to jailbreak my iPhone 4 with 4.1 or should I upgrade first to 4.2 then jailbreak?
    Is jailbreak for 4.2 available?

    TIA

    There is a jailbreak for 4.2 but it's tethered. I would stay on 4.1 until a untethered jailbreak becomes available if you wish to jailbreak 4.2.

    Yes. I'm on 4.1 just now. I used greenpoison. You could also use limerain. Both work in the same way and only take a couple of minutes.

    Make a back up of your phone in iTunes first before you use them...

    personally i would just upgrade i dont care about losing the jailbreak because there will always eb a jailbreak and it does not matter what baseband your on but it just means you would lose jailbreak until there is a tethered one for 4.2.1 firmware if you want the jb again
