Redsn0w would be tethered on 4.2.1, GP is untethered. Redsn0w is useful for installing cydia when GP's loader fails, however.

EDIT: I was thinking you had an iPhone 3G for some reason. Redsn0w is untethered on the iPhone 4G.

For iPhone 4, only Redsn0w Monte is untethered which require redsn0w 0.9.7 which only exists on Mac. Under Windows, the latest redsn0w is 0.9.6rc8 which gives a tethered iPhone 4 and an untethered iPhone 3G. (all 4.2.1)

They all do different things, RedSn0w, GreenPois0n, PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze,, Spirit, and so on. I honestly don't think you can really consider any one any better on the whole. I find each has their uses. GP (as a current jb) is generally easier than most others, but I find PwnageTool to be the most reliable, while RedSn0w seems to handle other things better and is more reliable than GP. It all comes down to what you're doing, and what your personal experience is.
