iPhone Dev Team Confirms Untethered Jailbreak For iOS 4.3.1 Is ‘Solid’

iOS 4.3.1

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’.

MuscleNerd tweeted:

well @i0n1c’s untether is solid! Just working out overall 4.3.x JB issues and Cydia :)

Though MuscleNerd has not provided an ETA, based on MuscleNerd’s tweet it looks like we won’t have to wait too long for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

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.

Update 1:

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.

Update 2:

It’s not clear whether the untethered jailbreak will support iOS 4.3 or earlier iOS versions.
