  • 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.

      I'd also like to know how this is any different from the two dozen other times this has been announced. Is there a difference here? Is this the end of jailbreaking as we know it, as alluded to by the title of this article?

      I'll bet the majority of these *fixes* don't exist it's a scare tactic to trick you into upgrading. Since when did jailbreaking become a "bug"? It's Apples way of lashing out for not being able to maintain complete control of their device. And after losing the ruling that deemed jailbreaking legal....this is one of the few ways they can retaliate.
      The people that are most affected by this are those that purchased a device running iOS 4.3. The announcement of this update can delay the release of a jailbreak, so it's of some concern to them.

      I don't see the iPhone popularity without a jailbreak. It goes hand in hand. I've been jb'n my iPhones since they first came out. I don't see it any other way! ...now if you can only release the iPad 2 jb, I'll be set.

      This isnt a big deal, Apple can never stop jailbreaking and why would they want to. jailbreaking in some cases gets people to use iDevices

      A delayed jailbreak is nothing to freak out about. I had to wait for Greenpoison and I managed to live through it. I'm sure these people will be fine. It's just something that comes with owning an iDevice. They should be well aware that Apple is constantly being a baby and combating jailbreaks so it's all a matter of purchasing the phone at the right time or dealing with the wait for a jailbreak release.
