  • Apple to Combat Jailbreaking with iOS 4.3.1 Update, Says BGR


    A slight iOS "tweak" is expected to be rolled out from Apple within the next two weeks, says a new report from BGR. iOS 4.3.1 for the iPhone and iPad could be available around the 1st of April. The update will supposedly address minor bugs and security holes. The "minor bug fixes," however, allude to a fix that would patch a vulnerability that enabled the freshly unveiled iPad 2 to be jailbroken so quickly after its release just ten short days ago.

    Also on tap for iOS 4.3.1 are:
    • Baseband updates for the 3GS and 1st generation iPad
    • Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
    • Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
    • Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
    Few other details about the rumored iOS update are known, particularly with regard to Apple possibly bringing its updated OS to Verizon iPhone's 4. Only weeks old itself, iOS 4.3 serves up a host of improvements, ranging from more secure in-app purchase controls and beefed-up Safari Web browser, to personal hotspots for tethering a 3G data connection over Wi-Fi and support for AirPlay in third-party apps. Such a prompt update to 4.3.1 likely suggests a knee-jerk reaction on the part of Apple to patch the vulnerabilities that continue to be exploited for jailbreaking purposes.

      Same problem but solved doing this :

      On Mac:
      * Open Finder
      * Hold down COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press 'G'
      * Enter "/private/etc/" in the field and press "Go"
      * Find "hosts" file in the directory
      * Drag the file to your desktop
      * Open it in text editor
      * Remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely or put a # at the beginning of it to comment it out
      * Save the file
      * Drag it back to the /private/etc/ folder.
      * You'd need to enter your username and password to authenticate the move

      On Windows:

      Locate the hosts file in one of the following directories:
      Windows 95/98/Me cwindows\hosts
      Windows NT/2000/XP Pro cwinnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
      Windows XP, Vista, 7 cwindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
      Right click and click on "Open With..." and then click on "Notepad" on the list.
      * Remove the line that has gs.apple.com completely and save the file.

      This should work fine but you will lose all music, photos, videos and books :S
