Musclenerd is confirming that Redsn0w 0.9.6 BETA can be used to jailbreak iOS 4.2 Beta.
He tweeted –“Since some will try it anyway: this redsn0w will also JB 4.2beta1 by pointing it at the 4.1 ipsw, but it’s *very* broken (flickers, etc)”
If your iPhone 3G is already running Ultrasn0w carrier unlock, stay away from Redsn0w as it updates your baseband to the latest version, making it impossible (for now) to unlock.
