As many of you know, Apple recently released a beta version of firmware iOS 4.3 for developers. This is the first of likely many test versions to be released until a GoldMaster version of iOS 4.3 is released probably late this month or early next month. After trying out the multitouch with the iPad, I really think this iOS upgrade will be quickly adopted.
If you have paid Apple $100 to gain access to developer versions of iOS (or have found other successful means for installing unreleased iOS versions), a semi-tethered iPad jailbreak is available much like redsn0w 0.9.6.
Instructions to jailbreak your iPad running iOS 4.3 using the PwnageTool are available here...
A tethered jailbreak means that after you complete the jailbreak steps above, you must reconnect the jailbroken device to your computer each time you reboot and use redsn0w by selecting "just boot tethered right now"
If you haven't upgraded to the beta version of iOS 4.3 (or don't have a developer account), you can still jailbreak your iOS 4.2.1 iPad using a semi-tethered version of redsn0w 0.9.6b4. It is not expected for an iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak to be made available, due to the new iOS version on the horizon.
