As I reported Apple has released the iOS 4.2 GM (Gold Master) to developers. Now Dev-Team has revealed that the recently released Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 can also jailbreak the iOS 4.2 GM build.

Here is the update from Dev-Team on iOS 4.2 GM build:

Today Apple released to developers the GM seed for 4.2. Tinkerers will find that yesterday’s redsn0w jailbreaks today’s 4.2 GM seed, simply by pointing redsn0w at the 4.1 IPSW (rather than the 4.2 one).  Right now it mostly only makes sense for JB app developers to do that because many apps (including Cydia itself) need to be updated for 4.2.  However, if all you want to do is enable afc2 (to use iFunBox or other file browsers), or to tweak settings like Battery % and Homescreen wallpapers, then go for it (if you have valid paid access to the GM seed).  Be sure to uncheck the Cydia box, though!  Ultrasn0w unlockers should stay very far away from this!!

Follow the step-by-step guides posted here (Windows) and here (Mac) to jailbreak your iOS device with redsn0w.
