  • Hacker i0n1c Taunts An iOS 4.3.5 Untethered Jailbreak

    Was i0n1c joking or not joking? That... is the question.

    There are many people who have still not upgraded to iOS 5 because they are stubborn and want to wait for the untethered jailbreak that pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team have been working on. Some of those people are running iOS 4.3.5, which doesn't have an untethered jailbreak because iOS 4.3.3 was the last untethered jailbreak made. For those people - we have some possible humor (or maybe a serious concept) to share with you. iOS hacker and security expert, i0n1c, said that he will be working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5.

    We in the jailbreak community have found that i0n1c can sometimes be very sarcastic - many times he is simply misunderstood. While it really wouldn't make sense to release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5 with an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak underway, i0n1c appears to have polled all of his followers in what they thought about an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5. Most of them were negative comments - so of course, i0n1c was the first one to say that he would do it. No one really knows if he was serious or not - but chances are that it would seem like a waste of time and it won't ever surface.

    Since iOS 5 has so many more features than iOS 4, any jailbreakers that would choose iOS 4.3.5 overs iOS 5 right now would be making an insane decision. All of the devices capable of running iOS 4.3.5 right now are capable of running iOS 5. With that in mind, even if i0n1c does release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5, we suggest that it would be a better option to update to iOS 5.0.1 and use the Chronic Dev Team's untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. This way you get the most amount of features from iOS and the most jailbreak tweak support as possible on your iDevice while developers continue to update tweak support for iOS 5 and drop support for older versions.

    While the whole tweet was probably a joke, we don't recommend taking what i0n1c says about it in vein. If he ever does release an iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak, we will let you know about it and you can make your decision from there. For now, save your iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs and APtickets so that you have a way to get back to iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 if need be.

    Are you the kind of jailbreaker that would take an iOS 4.3.5 untethered jailbreak over an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak? Share in the comments...

      To be honest, I'm waiting for a 5.01 untether jailbreak also on my iPhone 4. However I'm still on 4.3.5 due to Gevey Sim's unlock and I wouldn't mind getting a untether for 4.3.5. Also, I hear a lot of battery issues about 5.01 unless that only goes for 4S.

      [QUOTE=kadarrius;6342128. alot of people just like my self bought an ipad 2 on firmware 4.3.5 and are now stuck and have the choice to either update to ios 5 and join the crowd on waiting for a dam near impossible jailbreak for it :[/QUOTE]

      Funny.....I've seen pod2g's videos and tweets saying that it's pretty much done. Plus he had the CDT working on it now to so in thinking its not damn near impossible as its being done. Honestly though, as much as I want an untethered exploit for my i4 & 4S I say wait until 5.1 releases. That's the smartest move. Betas are already out for 5.1 and it's not like it's going to be from going to 4.3.5 to 5.0 so the release probably will not be that far off.

      I think the 4.3.5 untethered jailbreak would be nice for the following reasons..I have noticed a significant drop in battery power..Although 5.0.1 is better it still doesnt last as long as 4.3.5...The new features on 5.0.1 are nice but I would rather have a longer battery life.

      Complete lies you've heard. My 4s on 501 can outlive any phone on any firmware before it. I know, I have them. I plug my phone in when I go to bed, I take it off the charger when I get up. Never think twice about it in between, it's not an issue.

      Think about it now........ I don't look at the battery, it's not an issue. Never with any other firmware or iphone has that been said.

      I played zynga poker for 5 hours yesterday (lol, was a slow day) and was still at 27% when done. Add that to whatever the day consisted of.

      Why would anyone want a untethered for 4.3.5? It lacks many features IMHO

      im kinda confused a little .. i have a iPhone 4 jailbroken tethered 4.3.5 BASEBAND 4.10.01 unlocked with gevey.
      can i go to 5.0 when im 4.3.5 tethered jailbroken and unlocked with gevey sim and when the 5.0.1 or 5.0 untethered jailbreak comes out i can still preserve the 4.10.01 BB and continue with my unlock?
      or
      im i going to be able to install the 1.59.00 BB and unlock with ultrasn0w for the 5.0 or 5.0.1?
