Untethered Jailbreak For iOS 4.3.1 Has Been Released In The Form Of redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 And Pwnage Tool Download Links
Finally! the wait is over dear jailbreakers, iPhone-Dev Team has just released the updated versions of redsn0w and pwnage tool to jailbreak your iOS devices running on iOs 4.3.1. This was the most awaited jailbreak ever, they’ve launched it on their third year celebration of pwnage tool.
This jailbreak is based on i0n1c’s untethered which he handed over to iPhone-Dev team earlier this week, in release notes they said:
The 4.3.1 untether exploit comes courtesy of Stefan Esser (@i0n1c on twitter), a security researcher based in Germany. Stefan has a long history of vulnerability research, and ironically his first contribution to the iPhone jailbreak community was improved security — last year he beat Apple to the punch and implemented ASLR for jailbroken iPhones with his “antid0te” framework. We’re happy to see that Stefan then turned his iPhone attention over to an untethered jailbreak exploit!
This untethered jailbreak will support following iDevices:
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
- AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)
iPad 2′s jailbreak mystery remains there, and this untethered Jailbreak won’t work on your iPad2 because it requires a bootrom or iBoot-level exploit to install, and the iPad2 is not susceptible to either the limera1n or SHAtter bootrom exploits.
Ultrasn0w has not been updated to support this untethered jailbreak of iOS 4.3.1 as yet, so unlockers should stay away from this update for now.
They said :
We need to first release an update to ultrasn0w that fixes some incompatibilities when FW 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w. And remember once we do fix ultrasn0w for 4.3.1 (we’ll announce it here and on twitter), you must only get there via a custom IPSW from PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze or xpwn! Don’t ever try to restore or update to a stock IPSW, or you’ll lose the unlock!
