Redsn0w or restore and rejailbreak. Make sure you have your 4.2.1 blobs backed up if you choose to restore.

Restore is the last resource when installing Cydia via iFile and OpenSSH failed. Restore will cause many problem sometime. Before restore make sure that you have SHSH Blobs saved in TU or Cydia.
