iOS 4.2.1 jailbroken long before official release

iOS 4.2.1 isn’t even available to the general public, and yet it’s already been jailbroken.

iOS 4.2 is only now about to be released (as of this writing), but there’s already a jailbreak guide for iOS 4.2.1, long before it made its way to anyone outside of the Apple developer community.

While PC World doesn’t condone jailbreaking, if you do decide to go this route, watch out: the latest version of Cydia doesn’t work with the iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak and will crash your device. However, a fix is in the works, so stay tuned.

When is Apple slated to release iOS 4.2.1 into the wild? We're guessing sometime this week before Thanksgiving, but at this point, your guess is as good as ours.

Is the 4.2.1 jailbreak working for you? When do you think Apple's going to make available 4.2.1? Let us know in the comments!

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
