Untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak is out, supports all devices except iPad 2 and Verizon iPhone

20110405-023349.jpg

Fans of jailbreaking have long known that Sundays are traditionally reserved for major iPhone jailbreaks. Following yesterday’s tweet by a team member MuscleNerd, Dev-team released a set of updated tools for an untethered jailbreak of iOS devices. The news comes a week following the release of tethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak via Pwnage Tool. Here’s what you need to know if you’re into jailbreaking plus a video right after the break…

Untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 supports iPhone 4 (GSM only, since iOS 4.3.1 isn’t available for the Verizon iPhone yet) and 3GS, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, second-generation Apple TV (via PwnageTool only, for now) and the original iPad. New versions of Redsn0w for Windows and PwnageTool for Mac OS X are out to jailbreak those devices running iOS 4.3.1. Unlike a previous tethered jailbreak, this one doesn’t require you to tether the device to a computer each time it’s restarted. While the updated tools won’t let you jailbreak iOS 4.3 or 4.3.1 on iPad 2, a solutions is in the works and should be expected in the coming days.

Also, ultrasn0w users are advised against updating until Dev-team puts out an update to fix incompatibilities when iOS 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w.

New Bootrom Exploit to Jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 4.3

Comex, the well-know iPhone hacker, and the guy behind Spirit and JailbreakMe, has unveiled some good news for iPad 2 users, as we reported you earlier that Comex has successfully jailbroke iPad 2 running iOS 4.3 with his upcoming userland jailbreak, today he just confirmed that there’s new bootom exploit has been discovered by someone to jailbreak iPad 2 running iOS 4.3.

Someone asking Comex: is your new iPad 2 exploit in the boot rom? Or a userland exploit? Kinda curious. I am one of the lucky ones who landed one day one.
Comex replying: Userland, but I hear someone has a bootrom vulnerability that they might have exploited.

Comex didn’t announce about the hacker who have this bootrom exploit. On the other hand you have to know that also Stefan Essar (iPhone hacker) also has confirmed that he will release his untethered iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3 by the next weekend.

It’s highly expected that hacker behind this exploit will keep his bootrom exploit until iPhone 5 releases to make it effective for the longest period as much as they can, as this kind of exploits is only patched by a hardware upgrade. But the userland exploit is a software exploit which can be patched on any iOS update.

JailbreakMe 3.0 on its way to jailbreak iOS 4.3!

After showing a demo video and screenshot of successfully jailbroken iPad 2 by the famous iPhone developer Comex, here we have some more news. The next jailbreak could be packaged in a JailbreakMe like web-based app.

GUnitJC: @comex does this mean jailbreakme 3.0 is out now since you just had jailbroken the new iPad 2?

Comex: @GUnitJC No, it will take some work to package it into a jailbreak. Same deal as i0n1c.

As most of you know, there is a new vulnerability in Safari which allows some hackers to hack it at Pwn2Own contest which may allow the execution of JailbreakMe again. Everyone likes this tool because it’s very easy, fast and can be done without connecting your device into your PC or Mac. This new tool may jailbreak iPad 2 too.

There’s no ETA yet but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear something new!

iOS 4.3 untethered jailbreak achieved (video)

In less than 24 hours hackers could achieve untethered jailbreak on iPad iOS 4.3. A new video was uploaded on Youtube by the well-known hacker i0nic shows untethered jailbreak on iPad iOS 4.3 in action. Check the video after the jump.

TinyUmbrella 4.30.00 Brings iOS 4.3 and iPad 2 Support

Notcom, the developer behind TinyUmbrella, has updated TinyUmbrella to version 4.30.00 to support iOS 4.3 and the upcoming iPad 2 (WiFi, CDMA and GSM).

TinyUmbrella now supports all three new models of iPad 2. I’ve also added a much-needed tweak per saurik’s request. If you don’t update to the latest version, you may experience /significant/ slowness when saving your SHSHs in the future. With this release, 4.3 is supported. I plan on making some changes to the UI to help out the poor saps stuck on vertical resolutions < 900. I’m also going to be removing the proxy section of the app and simply using the system proxy settings.

Notcom recommended users to upgrade to the latest version of TinyUmbrella as they may experience significant slowness when saving SHSH blobs.
