    Yes you can jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on the Apple iPad from anywhere in the UK by downloading the software for the procedure. Below is the step by step procedure of how you can jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on the Apple iPad:

    1. Download the redsn0w software: Mac or Windows version

    2. Upgrade to iTunes 10.1 if you haven't already.

    3. Install the iOS 4.2.1 firmware via iTunes as usual.

    4. Run the redsn0w software executable.

    5. Redsn0w will ask you to select your IPSW file for your current firmware. Point it to one of the following, depending on your OS:

         • Mac OS X: /~/Library/iTunes/iPad Software Updates (or iPhone/iPod Software Updates, as the case may be)

         • Windows 7 or Vista: C:\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates (or iPhone/iPod Software Updates)

         • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates (or iPhone/iPod Software Updates)

    6. Redsn0w should now say that the IPSW file was successfully identified. On the following screen, check "Install Cydia" then click "Next."

    7. With the iOS device powered off and plugged into the computer, click "Next" again.

    8. Redsn0w will now provide instructions on how to put your device into DFU mode. This is a combination of key presses, that are as follows: Hold the Power button for 1 second, then without releasing it, hold the Home button for 10 seconds. Finally, release Power but keep holding Home for 15 seconds.

    9. One in DFU mode, the jailbreak will proceed automatically.

    Hope this helps. 

    For anyone who can't find the file, it's probably because your device is already updated. Good Luck
