There's no such thing as the best jailbreak. The jailbreaks for 4.1 are limera1n, greenpois0n rc4, and redsn0w.

I felt the limera1n installer was one of the easier ones.

You have a couple choices for jailbreaking iOS 4.1:

  1. LimeRa1n: Mac, Windows (Homepage)
  2. PwnageTool 4.1: Mac Only (Homepage)
  3. RedSn0w 0.9.6: Windows Only (How-To)
  4. GreenPois0n RC4: Mac, Windows, Linux

I believe they all use the same exploit, but only PwnageTool has the ability to prevent your baseband from being upgraded, I believe.
