  • 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.

      Replacement iPhones have been shipping with 4.3 out of the box so this rumor is a possibility.

      Any advantage to the iPhone Hotspot over MyWi?

      MyWi allows USB and Bluetooth tethering so.....

      Dang, 4.3 already. I am staying on 4.2.1 for a while at least till a lot of the cydia apps are updated and an untethered JB is released.

      After being on my 3gs and going back to an iphone 2g and messing with it to get unlimited data back on my 3GS, i dont know how anybody could say that its better. Maybe the deisgn? But as far as internal hardware the 2g is garbage, slow and very very laggy. And mind you no 3G so how could anyone like it better? Old firmware 3.1.3 no native folders ect. umm no

      I'm guessing any wifi hotspot on the iPhone will be Ad-Hoc only, right? I'd like to be able to connect my PSP to my iPhone's Internet, but the PSP can't connect to Ad-Hoc networks.

      Yea I agree. I'm on 3.1.3 jailbroken and all and it is very laggy. Didn't really care foe the 3g and 3gs. But the ip4 is one amazing device. I know this is off topic but do u think if I use my moms upgrade to get the ip4 can I still keep MY unlimited data? We have separate plans as well....

      Yes you can... in fact. that was the only way they allowed me to keep my unlimited data. simply because i didnt have an upgrade!
