I read that you need an internet connection to jailbreak your device. I have an iPad with 4.2.1 and I am in China. The jailbreak failed and I want to ask, does the computer need the internet connection or the iPad? On the computer I have VPN, but on the iPad I don't.

On the computer it downloads two payload files. These can be put in the folder manually if it doesn't work.

On the device, the installed Loader also connects to the internet to download Cydia. But you can use redsn0w instead.

So you can avoid both connections.
