  • 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!

      Great news for everyone waiting on an official jailbreak. Tethered these days isn't bad considering after you install mobile substrate and winterboard there are no other packages in Cydia that make you reboot. I have not had to reboot my phone in months and I'm untethered on 4.2.1. Still itching for the iPad 2 JB though

      Hells yeah! Just tell me though: what does it mean by "semi-tethered?" You only need to JB again when it shuts down or reboots some of the time?

      Also, I saw an iPad 2 jailbroken, but nothing to indicate that it was untethered. It seems hard to demonstrate such a thing with images alone. Is this an assumption? Is there really reason to believe that iOS 4.3.1 can be JBed without tethering?

      I don't believe one has been confirmed, so you may be waiting a while. Not to mention 4.3.1 is just around the corner which inevitably will result in a longer wait for a untethered JB.

      Huh? This JB is for 4.3.1. What do you mean it's "just around the corner"?

      Not released for all devices yet; most notably, CDMA iPhone 4.

      If the issues documented to not occur on the CDMA iPhone then there is no reason to release an update for it.

      i was able to finish restoring my iphone 4 with custom firmware 4.3.1 (baseband preservation) thru snowbreeze 2.4. HOWEVER, i was not able to pass the iBooty section cause it can't load and stays on DFU while iBoot keeps loading and reloading. Also, i was able to open my iphone 4 untethered BUT there's no cydia in it. please help. I was able to preserve the baseband.
