It has hardly been a few hours since Apple released iOS 4.3.3 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and we’re already hearing reports that the latest iOS software update can be jailbroken using Redsn0w released by the iPhone Dev team to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3.
iOS 4.3.3 includes fixes for the iPhone and iPad 3G location tracking bugs.
The trick is to point it to iOS 4.3.2 when Redsn0w 0.9.6rc14 prompts you to select the corresponding firmware file instead of iOS 4.3.3.
However, the jailbreak is currently tethered (untethered only for iPhone 3GS with older bootrom) so it is advisable to wait for iPhone Dev team and iH8sn0w to release updated version of their jailbreaking tools for iOS 4.3.3.
It also looks like the i0n1c’s untether vulnerability that was used in PwnageTool and Redsn0w has not been fixed in iOS 4.3.3. Comex, member of the iPhone Dev Team revealed this via the following tweet:
@i0n1c’s bug is not patched in 4.3.3. #whatisthisidonteven
It’s not clear when the tools that support the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.3 will be released but we expect it to be released soon.
