I'm on 4.1 untethered (3GS) and want to start fresh (been fiddling too much with it). So just to be certain, is it safe to factory restore phone and the use greenpois0n to JB iOS 4.2.1? Will it be untethered? I don't need to hactivate or unlock the phone.

Yes it will be untethered using Greenpois0n. Not sure what you mean by safe really, but yes it will work and you'll have a good iOS running.

So just update your phone to 4.2.l. Download and run greenpois0n and follow the steps it says and youll have your phone jb'd :) IF you miss the steps it says, try again. Heres a link that can help you jailbreak if you have any issues.

and download greenpois0n from here

Good Luck!
