My iPad is jailbroken from redsnow and tethered. How should I jailbreak it untethered from tethered without losing my jailbreak?

Ive read more than not that you have to restore the iOS to 4.2.1 and start over, BUT I just read from someone on here (cant remember his name) but he said he successfully jailbroke over his tethered iPad and it worked fine and didnt lose anything. I have however done the iPhones tethered to untethered without any issue at all. I would honestly think its ok to run GP over tops of your redsnow tethered jb :)

Good Luck! :)

I did GP over RS on the iPad without a problem! Very simple. It was already on 4.2.1. Let us know how it goes.
