yeap, its on 4.2.1 now.i restored it after the data got deleted.

i also noticed something...when i start the jailbreaking process using greenpois0n, i follow every step but i noticed that on the last step, the "release the sleep button;continue holding the home button" step, the counter from 15 only goes down till 8 and then it stops and the "jailbreak" button is already enabled.and then comes the "Jailbreak Failed :(" message. that's what happens everytime :-(
