  • Apple Releases iOS 4.3.1, as Jailbreakers Are Urged to Proceed with Caution


    Moments ago, Apple released iOS 4.3.1, a relatively minuscule security and maintenance update widely anticipated to drop soon anyway for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    Immediately following the announcement, caution was urged by the jailbreak community with regard to the update. Minutes ago, MuscleNerd tweeted: "Unlockers please stay away from today's iOS 4.3.1! Just to be extra safe, so should future iPad2 jailbreakers (for now)." He subsequently added: "It's very unlikely they fixed the bug in comex's unreleased iPad2 jailbreak, but you never know. Better to wait for confirmation first."

    For the time being, the update is not for the CDMA iPhone 4, only GSM iPhone 4. The CDMA iPhone 4 remains married to iOS 4.2.6. According to Apple, here's what iOS 4.3.1 gets you:
    • Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation)
    • Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks
    • Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs
    • Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise web services
    In addition to the GSM iPhone 4, the iOS 4.3.1 update supports iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, and iPod touch (3rd & 4th gen). Direct Firmware Downloads

    Despite what some iPhone users were expecting, Apple did not use this update to address the reported battery life issues that developed following the previous update to 4.3.

      I'm happy that they released 4.3.1 today as that puts us one step closer to the untethered jailbreak being released. My biggest interest though is learning whether the MobileSubstrate issue has been resolved or still broken?

      Also, to the above poster; when iOS 4.3 was released Apple wasted no time in withdrawing from signing iOS 4.2.1. I expect, from now on, we will see them stop signing the previous iOS version the same day a new iOS is released.

      Yes, an Apple host name needs to be statically associated with a specific IP address [http://www.saurik.com/id/12].
      Now if you use TinyUmbrella (if I'm not fooled by memory and assorted haziness ) it's actually 127.0.0.1 instead of Saurik's.

With all the additions now aside from thoes of us who swap sim cards when we travel abroad it's almost senseless. I love mywi, 3G, and winterboard....but, the ATT police along with the ever waiting cat n mouse game is getting old.

      You all may "bash" me for saying this but... My hopes is that the JB Devs decide to capitolize and turn their efforts into a biz. Higher some more smart JBers and charge us. That way (in theory at least) the JB for each update will be alot faster. Don't get me wrong I like free but you can't expect corporate style speed without some full-time coding guys getting paid to give us a product. Oh and most importantly all the dev bashing (by thoes that demand a instant fix from the devs) will stop crying and being so rude to thoes that take their free time to give us a free JB /Unlock.

      Last Christmas wish would be for the JB / unlock to be in a form of an app that is on the app store!!!! Come on Apple you could make A Lot of cash!!!!

      God I hope not. Cydia is already turning into an apple store.

      I am EXTREMELY happy to get this update believe it or not because I have been getting the "graphics glitch" on my iPod Touch. Every time that I get a notification, static surrounds and goes through the alert and other parts of the screen. You can search on google to get some images.

      It was starting to get extremely annoying, and I am glad that Apple got this problem resolved.

      No, the JB isn't out because it wasn't/isn't ready. The news that the 4.3.1 update only got leaked out a week ago so its not like the Dev Team knew this was coming. So don't hold your breath for the JB
