  • 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!

      OY, VAY! People like u r obviously "W"ackberry owners, trolling iPhone sites & saying ridiculous things! If u really owned an iPhone, u couldn't possibly be so absurd. If u do own an iPhone, STFU! Why did u update to iOS 4.3, if ur so in need of JB? Take ur $5 & go buy some common sense!

      Didn't update my phone dipstick I have a 4.1 jailbroken iPhone 4, need 4.3 jailbreak for my iPad 2 (didn't update that either). So you STFU, everyone says time is the killer when trying to release a jailbreak. Well, if the developers each had 1/2 a million bucks in their pocket they could work on it full time and screw the day job.

      Oh obviously u were talking about ur iPad 2 & not ur iPhone in this, the "IPHONE NEWS" section! Maybe u should go complain about your iPad 2 in the iPad forum, "DIPSTICK!" Or better yet, stop wasting ur time crying about how long a FREE untethered jb may or may not take. U should release ur own 4.3 untethered jb, since it's so easy! Beggars can't be choosers!

      Have a nice day, "BEGGAR!"

      So how is offering money begging?
      Oh wait I give up, as know I see I must be dealing with a real genius...your running Vista ( worst release of an OS ever) and you can't even jailbreak your own iPhone 3GS, according to your sig.

      They aren't doing this for money. In case you haven't figured it out, they develop because they want to find a hole in the system and be the first to exploit it.

      Even if they had a million bucks in their pockets, they would still work at the pace they do now because being able to work at their own pace is the reason they enjoy doing it.

      Offering money would offer a few complications:
      Professional developers would get involved. They would hide advertisements in their jailbreaks.

      Less people would jailbreak because it costs money. Plain and simple, people love jailbreak because it's free and it gives them more life into their iDevice. Charging for this takes away the spirit of it.

      Doing this for money will diminish the quality. When you do something because you love doing it, you put effort into doing it the right way. When you do something because you're paid to do it, you can have a really bad day and it affects the quality.

      That signature was from almost a year ago, with the ModMyi app I don't even see signatures. So it doesn't mean anything, as for Vista I hardly ever turn my pos pc on at all anyway.

      As for calling u a "BEGGAR" I'm referring to the saying "Beggars can't be chooser's!" It's a metaphor, meaning if u r taking something from someone, (especially for free) don't complain about it. If u don't like what they r offering (especially for free) then don't take it & if u have any complaints about it (especially for free) create ur own jb & you'll have no complaints! The offering of $5 is not "BEGGING," nor is it what I'm talking about. It's the receiving of something (especially for free) & then whining about, how u don't like it or think it should be different. Beggars cant be choosers, get it now genius? 
