which of these is the best to currently jailbreak on? I have an ipod touch 4g 8gb. i know that 4.2.1 takes up the least memory for the root partition but are there any real advantages to the 4.3.x firmwares?

If you want to know what new features have been added to newer firmware releases then look here and scroll down to the ios4 section and have a read.

If you really want to stay on 4.2.1 why not use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc14 to jailbreak it, more stable than GP.
