Jailbreak The Verizon iPhone Running the iOS 4.2.7 Firmware! [Untethered Jailbreak]
When RedSn0w 0.9.6RC14 was released for an untethered iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak the only iDevice left out of this untethered jailbreak was the Verizon iPhone. If you currently have a tethered jailbreak on the iOS 4.2.7 firmware and would like to untether your jailbreak, you will be glad to know you now have a couple options. iH8Sn0w recently released an updated version of Sn0wbreeze (version 2.6.1) that supports jailbreaking the iOS 4.2.7 firmware untethered (WINDOWS only) and iH8Sn0w has also partnered with @PUSHFIX to create a Cydia package jailbreak.
Therefore, you have two options for jailbreaking your Verizon iPhone 4 running the iOS 4.2.7 firmware untethered:
