I have a iPhone 4 jailbroken on iOS 4.1. Considering the small enhancements that iOS 4.2.1 has, does it worth it to upgrade to ios 4.2.1 and jailbreak again?

I mean, does most of the jailbreak apps and tweaks still work on 4.2.1? Or I should wait more for greater compatibility and don't take the trouble of upgrading for almost nothing?

You should just wait until there's news or reports that all the major jailbreaking apps are working and available. So far we still have the repo problem >.<

Thanks for your answers, I think I'll wait for another iOS until it worth it.

This has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the link, so:

Not really, unless you have an AirPrint enabled printer, or an AppleTV, there's not a lot in 4.2.1 worth the pain of an upgrade if you don't really want to.

Most Cydia apps seem to be working ok in 4.2.1, but if you're after a specific one you probably need to check with the developer.
