  • 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.

      I don't think he can. They stopped honoring the unlimited data. IMO the reason why ppl still have unlimited data is because they were grandfathered in. I've had mine since 2006 when I had my first blackberry

      I hear that 4.3 will make Safari faster. That's what I'm looking forward to most, I'd say.

      Wrong Place to post this question. But to answer it no he will not get the unlimited plan option.

      Kinda off topic but to piggy back on unlimited data since its such a huge issue.

      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.

      It has nothing to do with upgrades. AT&T allows people who had unlimited data, prior to June of 2010, to keep it. You can upgrade your phone after, but you have to remember to tell them you're keeping the data plan you already have.

      As long as you don't change that plan, you'll have it... Unless AT&T decides to stop honoring the grandfather, which I don't see happening yet (I would switch to Verizon over that.)

      So, yes, he can use the upgrade on his mom's line to get the phone, and activate the phone on his own line... Just have to be sure not to tick mom off! lol.
