Finally, after being teased yesterday on Twitter, the iPhone dev team has released the much awaited and necessary untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. All those who have been waiting to update to 4.3.1, but were stopped by the fear of having to use tethered jailbreak can now rejoice.
Yesterday, we told you that the dev team would release the Jailbreak when the topic #sundayisfunday starts trending on Twitter. We are not sure if the topic set a twitter trend, but we are pretty sure that you can now untether jailbreak your iDevice on iOS 4.3.1 using the latest PwnageTool and redsnOw packages.
The untether for the jailbreak was provided by iOn1c a.k.a Stefan Esser and his contribution has led to the development of the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak by the dev team. The jailbreak was supposedly released at midnight so as to maintain the Sunday is Funday tradition and both the new versions of the PwnageTool and redsnOw is available for download at the iPhone Dev Blog. UltrasnOw users are requested to wait for an update before jailbreak,
WARNING — ultrasn0w users don’t update yet! We need to first release an update to ultrasn0w that fixes some incompatibilities when FW 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w. And remember once we do fix ultrasn0w for 4.3.1 (we’ll announce it here and on twitter), you must only get there via a custom IPSW from PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze or xpwn! Don’t ever try to restore or update to a stock IPSW, or you’ll lose the unlock!
PwnageTool is for Mac only and preserves the previous baseband and redsnOw is for both Windows and Mac, but redsnOw is more easier and better preferred. The untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1 can be performed for the following devices:
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
- AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)
Download redsnOw 0.9.6 RC9 for Windows and Mac. For PwnageTool Torrent and Unofficial Mirrors please visit the iPhone Dev Blog.
