  • iOS 4.3.4 Released - Stay Away If Jailbroken


    Today, Apple has released the newest updated version of iOS - 4.3.4. This release is a rebuttal to the PDF exploit found and implemented in comex (@comex)'s JailbreakMe 3.0. The PDF hole was a security issue regardless of the involvement of JailbreakMe - however, news of this hole reached Apple because of what comex did with JailbreakMe 3.0 (also potentially by the leaked version before release of JailbreakMe 3.0). iOS 4.3.4 is for all iDevices - iPhone, iPod, and iPad (1 - 2).

    A word of warning from MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd):



    If you value your jailbreak, do NOT update: make sure to preserve your SHSH blobs also.

    A support document from Apple gives an overview of the security content in iOS 4.3.4:

    Security Content of iOS 4.3.4

    A shout-out to @iNeal11 for catching my attention on Twitter - give him a follow!

    UPDATED: This update includes Verizon devices also (4.2.9). Same disclaimer as above.

      That's true, assuming users don't accidentally upgrade first then they're no longer on 4.3.3 then it's all hopeless

      True on all devices except iPad 2. ih8sn0w mentioned it would a require a bootrom exploit in order for it to work.

Jailbreak developers count on Apple to patch the holes they uncovered before some 12 year old "lulzsec" wannabe starts screwing with peoples phones.

      Don't Hate - Appreciate!

      4.3.0 actually works with the jailbreak. If am not wrong the patch was done on 4.3.1. Anyway, I was able to jailbreak ipad2 on 4.3.0 using jailbreakme. Cydia works fine, and was able to sync my apps and all. I dint see any down side but since it was not intended for 4.3.0, I hope the system doesn't get messed up with time.

      Yup, or my all time favorite.."Help, I "ACCIDENTALLY" updated" Or, I updated on by accident...somewhere along those lines of being clueless. How do you accidentally update?

      There was a site that listed, with a picture, every change that was included in an iOS update. I know there is always small things like an in app icon change, or a button moving over a pixel or something that never makes it to the front page.

      Anyone know that site? I'm always curious to see all of the changes to updates.

      Except that your locations of your whereabouts is being monitored by Apple if you did not restore to IOS 4.3.3

      For Ipad 2 Wifi + 3G model > Eventhough you have saved your 4.3.3 blob, if you want to restore again to IOs 4.3.3 when Apple stops signing 4.3.3, you can't error out 1013 yet. So beware until someone comes out with a fix recovery loop solution.

      I used Snowbreeze on my iPod touch 4g, do i still have to download PDF patcher 2? or is that just for Jailbreakme 3.0 users?

      Just for jailbreakme users.

      No, I think it is the IOS 4.3.3 itself, so you still need to patch it so no malware can come thru.

      Actually Yeow you're right. Just realized that we do need it patched.
