Apple iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak Is Out. Supports Windows And Mac
The cat and mouse game between Apple and the hackers, took a new turn. In just just three days after the release of Apple iOS 4.3.1 update, a jailbreak has been released. New sn0wbreeze 2.4 beta 1 by iH8sn0w allows jailbreaking iOS devices running iOS 4.3.1. Still there is no unlock for the latest baseband in that stock update .Do note that the sn0wbreeze tool is meant only for Windows based users. Latest PwnageTool 2.0.1 will let Mac users create custom firmware bundle to jailbreak their devices.
Both Mac and Windows based tools offer tethered jailbreaking, meaning that you will have to connect your device to a PC or Mac and jailbreak it every time you want to reboot it. The new sn0wbreeze 2.4 beta 1 for Windows is the first beta so one can anticipate some instability in the performance post jailbreak.
Mac OS X users can make the best of PwnageTool 2.0.1 to create a custom iOS 4.3.1 firmware to be restored. Here is the list of software you will need to jailbreak the iOS devices
- Device specific iOS 4.3.1 firmware
- iTunes 10.2.1
- Pwnatool 2.0.1 for Mac OS X and sn0wbreeze for Windows
- Universal Ramdisk Fixer
- Tetheredboot utility
Remember that these tools are beta and bound to have some stability issues. Also jailbreaking you device will void your warranty and this current version won't unlock your phone.
