redsn0w 0.9.8b3 for iOS 4.3.4 Released - Kernel Hackers Only
DISCLAIMER: READ EXTREMELY CAREFULLY
About 30 minutes ago, MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) tweeted out that the iPhone Dev-Team has released the third beta of redsn0w for the recently released iOS 4.3.4.
On the iPhone Dev-Team blog, a new addition to the post gives insight on what this update is all about. Please read EXTREMELY carefully:
Update #3: For the convenience of kernel hackers like @comex and @i0n1c, we have a new redsn0w 0.9.8b3 that supports a TETHERED jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 on all devices that have 4.3.4 except the iPad2. The vast majority of people will want to stay back at 4.3.3 because that’s where the untethered jailbreak is! There are no new features in 4.3.4 — only fixes for jailbreak exploits.
Also, this is a good time to remind everyone (since we’re still seeing confusion about this): iPad2 owners with a baseband (3G or CDMA) cannot currently use saved blobs to go back to 4.3.3 once the signing window is closed. This is unlike every other device, so don’t be confused! iPad2 owners with basebands should stay away from all updates to maintain the jailbreak!
- This redsn0w version supports a TETHERED jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 for all devices except the iPad 2 - this version is meant for kernel hackers only
- STAY back on 4.3.3 because that is where the untethered jailbreak is at - iOS 4.3.4 adds no new features and was strictly an update to fix jailbreak exploits
- iPad 2 owners with baseband (3G) or CDMA can't currently go back to 4.3.3 on SHSH blobs after the signing window is closed - to maintain jailbreak, iPad 2 owners should stay away from all updates
This version of redsn0w is truly for kernel hackers only - there is absolutely no reason for an average user to update to iOS 4.3.4 and use this jailbreak at this current time. DO NOT TAKE THE RISK. It is not worth it.
If you're a hacker / developer and understand the risk you would be making and can handle it accordingly, here are the respective links:
redsn0w0.9.8b3 for Mac
redsn0w0.9.8b3 for Windows

Well, there goes that. I'm actually surprised Apple even decided to make a firmware 4.3.4 with all the beta testing for ios 5 going on. But it was to be expected to close off the jb exploits.

@ihappy Apple didn't release 4.3.4 JUST to patch the jailbreak exploit, the PDF sploit was a serious security flaw, and could have been used by and malicious hacker. They had no choice but to patch it.
Also, I don't understand people's obsession with being on the latest firmware. I'm still on 4.2.6 on my CDMA iPhone. There are no new features added in the updates, and I really don't care about the 'locationgate' deal. I've always just upgraded to the latest firmware once it's been jailbroken, and stayed there until the next latest firmware was jailbroken. It's not hard to do, just takes a little common sense and good timing

Yea Im screwed! I was forced to restore and for some reason, Cydia didnt save my sshs! I so should have made sure I had everything figured out before I restored. F*** my life!

If you can return it within 14 days and buy from Craiglist or Ebay, ask the seller if he has 4.3.3 blob saved.
