do you have a SHSH blob for 4.2.1? if you have, save them using TinyUmbrella on your computer. later, you can restore to 4.2.1 and jailbreak your iPad with greenpois0n.

When you updated to 4.3, that wiped your jailbreak. GP doesn't work on 4.3. Do you have your 4.2.1 SHSH's? If so, you can downgrade to 4.2.1 and re-jailbreak. If not, you can restore to stock 4.3 and use it unjailbroken, or use the sn0wbreeze beta for a tethered 4.3 jailbreak.
