    When I follow the directions given to Jailbreak my Verizon iPhone (4.2.7) using the directions for Jailbreaking with Redsn0w (4.3.2) it does not work. Redsn0w_0.9.6rc14 does not recognize the iPhone 4.2.7.ipsw restore. Therefore, I think the only way to do the Jailbreak properly would be to use the 4.2.6.ipsw restore and then update to 4.2.7 with the Cydia untethered process afterward.
