  • Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 now available for Mac and Windows


    EDIT: Be aware, Sn0wbreeze is not an official Dev Team release, and doesn't include the standard kernel patches and the sandbox issues aren't sorted out. This means certain things could be broken on it (Safari, Cydia, etc). We still recommended you use official Dev Team releases.

    Two of the most popular jailbreak tools have been updated so that users who wish to jailbreak their iOS devices on 4.3.1 can now do so. Both PwnageTool, the iPhone Dev-Team's jailbreak solution, and Sn0wbreeze, a windows jailbreak tool developed by @ih8sn0w, now have beta releases that enable a tethered jailbreak for all iOS devices (excluding the iPad 2).

    Redmond Pie has already posted a tutorial on how to have a "semi-tethered" jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1 using PwnageTool. In their notes they state that the release only works with the latest version of iTunes, 10.2.1, and you'll need a Universal Ramdisk Fixer, along with PwnageTool bundles for iOS 4.3.1. They also note that baseband will not be upgraded via the jailbreak.

    The latest sn0wbreeze beta has been posted to ih8snow's blog, and seems like it will do the same, except users must upgrade to stock 4.3.1 before running the software. The release notes alert users to be mindful of their baseband if they continue to rely on an unlocked iPhone.

    We'd recommend sitting tight, and waiting for slightly easier, untethered solutions to emerge. We've seen images of what we believe to be an iPad 2 untethered jailbreak that could supposedly work with older devices. So if we had to guess, it won't be long until these beta, tethered solutions give way to official untethered releases. But if you're aching to have iOS 4.3.1 and want it jailbroken, you can now do so. Update at your own risk!

      4.3.1 didn't really bring any "important" updates. I'll wait for untethered.

      No. He'll just get sent back to jail every time he falls asleep. But it'll be easier to get out again because of the giant hole that was dug out behind the poster of Rocky Dennis.

      Not worth it in my eyes... it's just the peace of mind that I can turn off my phone or it loses its charge but I don't need my comp to turn it on... Whats on 4.3 that's a must have anyways?

      He also has the option of being semi-teathered when he gets out of jail, but the ankle bracelet is attached to the handcuffs, and as mentioned before, if he falls asleep, he returns to jail for free!
      Now tell me, could you resist a deal like that?
      Me too!

      In all seriousness, i will be waiting for the full meal deal instead of a "semi".

      No I think as long as he's awake he will be okay. However if he falls asleep he will wake up in jail? I don't know though. Keep us posted.

      can we use tiny umbrella to preserve babseband from 4.1 if we are stil on that to keep for unlocking purposes? or does the iphone 4 now see the bb mismatch and not boot up and instead ask to restore in itunes?

      UPDATE: He was jailbroken, but it was tethered. He snorted a ton a cocaine and died, but was revived in the hospital, but his boot was strapped to the bed. Unfortunately, his cell number was changed from 431 to 432 and they closed the hole in the wall

      Im unlocked on 4.1 still on my iPhone4. If I use pwnage tool to upgrade to 4.3.1 without upgrading the baseband will ultrasn0w work? Or does it require an update as well to work on 4.3.1?

      It isn't worth updating for me cus I don't see much different in 4.3 except lots of rumours that it drains your battery?
