  • iOS 4.3 Today? Not Ready For Jailbreak

    News is buzzing around the web this morning that Apple's latest update, iOS 4.3, could be released as soon as 10am today. While we were told by Steve that the firmware wouldn't be available until March 11th, it's hard to gauge the validity of these rumors of an early release. Apple only seeded iOS 4.3 GM to developers last Thursday, so it's quite a quick turnaround. We shall see how the morning turns out, keep an eye out for that update and let us know if you see it.

    Nonetheless, those of us that jailbreak our iDevices should be hesitant to update to iOS 4.3. The obvious reason being that an official jailbreak tool for iOS 4.3 is not yet available. There are various guides on the web, demonstrating a manual jailbreak for iOS 4.3, however many of these end up with errors, as Mobile Substrate is not yet fully compatible with iOS 4.3. A majority of the jailbreak apps in Cydia use Mobile Substrate so there isn't much point in wasting your time and possibly losing your jailbreak. The only real added feature to iOS 4.3 is the new Hotspot function, but if your jailbroken, I'm sure you've heard of MyWi by now.

    As per usual, if you unlock, do not update your firmware.

      LOL! So the unlock is not officially out, just like the JB. They're in BETA for a reason...so I'm still failing to see how I posted misinformation. All I was saying is that no one should upgrade to the new firmware if you want a JB or rely on an unlock yet...

      Anyone know if you will need shsh blobs from the previous firmware for this jailbreak? I need to exchange my phone(some issues) but I can't get to the Apple store till saturday so I can't backup the blobs for the new phone.

      Also, how soon after a firmware is released will they stop signing the blobs?

      He wont get unlimited data if he adds a new line, but you can def get unlimited data back if you have an iphone 2g, or there is a guy offering a service for like 70 buck 1 time fee to do it as he has access to changing peoples at&t's account. Here is the link for both of the options i just listed for getting unlimited data back.

      As far as the service, just read the comments his name is Manny and he has had lots of people thanking him and giving feedback saying its legit.

      4.3 is out. Hopefully it brings infrastructure mode to the wifi driver, so MyWi can use infrastructure instead of ad hoc.

      Glad he was able to help you! I personally did the iPhone 2g trick with my 3gs sims and it works, but those that dont have the 2g and just want to pay to have the service done, a 70 dollar 1 time fee does not see too bad. But if i were i would find a friend that had a 2g

      The only reason I see to update, at least on my iPod Touch 4g, is that the new version of iMovie will not install unless you have updated the firmware. But, I don't think that's worth the trouble of having to jailbreak all over again.
