Along with iOS 4.3.4, Apple has also released iOS 4.2.9 for Verizon iPhone 4 CDMA. You can download iOS 4.2.9 for Verizon iPhone 4 from the link below. Like iOS 4.3.4, the Verizon iPhone 4.2.9 firmware also patches the PDF vulnerability in Mobile Safari exposed by JailbreakMe 3.0, the iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak tool by Comex.
ATTENTION: If you want to keep enjoying your untethered iOS 4.2.8 jailbreak, we strongly suggest you to stay away from iOS 4.2.9 firmware. iOS 4.2.9 is released just to patch the JailbreakMe 3.0 PDF exploit. There’s no need to install iOS 4.2.9 when jailbreakers can patch the exploit with PDF Patcher 2 available in Cydia.
