We had reported couple of days back that iPhone hacking expert Stefan Esser who goes by the Twitter handle i0n1c had figured out a way to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1, which was untethered.
He had also handed over the the untethered iOS 4.3 jailbreak to iPhone Dev team so that they could test it before releasing it to users. MuscleNerd, one of the members of the iPhone Dev team has revealed that the untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak is ‘solid’.
well @i0n1c’s untether is solid! Just working out overall 4.3.x JB issues and Cydia
Sn0wbreeze for Windows and PwnageTool for Mac with custom bundles can already jailbreakiOS 4.3.1. However, they support only a tethered jailbreak, so users have to use iBooty (Windows) or tetheredboot utility (Mac) to boot into jailbroken state if they need to reboot their iOS device.
This untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 won’t support iPad 2 as Apple has patched the jailbreak vulnerability in iOS 4.3.1.
It’s not clear whether the untethered jailbreak will support iOS 4.3 or earlier iOS versions.
