Can't get Cydia without jailbreaking, update to 4.3.3 and then use Redsn0w0.9.6rc15 to jailbreak

Not sure of your OS so go here and select the relevant tutorial for Redsn0w 4.3.3

You're not unlocking it with Redsn0w, you're jailbreaking it, tethered/untethered is not relevant at this point in time, everything is untethered.

Yeah, same scenario as in the tut but 4.2.1 instead, but if you search the tutorials you will probably find the relevant one. What's the reason for staying on 4.2.1, I can't think of one for a factory unlocked iphone4

In 4.2.1 just use Greenpois0n from and download Cydia from the after the jailbreak process, then you're good to go.
