Following today’s announcement of the first iPad 2 jailbreak by @Comex, iPhone hacker @i0n1c has updated us with the status of his untethered iOS 4.3 jailbreak, which was revealed late last week.

i0n1c has  updated his original YouTube video showing off the jailbreak, with an ETA for the untethered jailbreak which he states will be released “before next weekend”…

Because so many people are asking for an ETA:

I am pretty sure that the untether will be released before the next weekend. I was using older kernel patches that caused lagging on the jailbroken device. I will change that and then port it to the other devices and release.

i0n1c claims that he is working out a few bugs in the jailbreak and thanks to the help of Comex, he has fixed the lagging issues on the iPhone 4. According to i0n1c, this new exploit will be a big surprise to Apple:

I am pretty sure the first reaction of the Apple Techs analysing my untether exploit binary will be: WTF!?!

Also, keep in  mind, i0n1c’s untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3 will only work on iDevices that are vulnerable to the limera1n exploit, meaning that this will work on all current devices, except the iPad 2. iPad 2 owners will have to patiently wait for Comex’s jailbreak.

It’s nice to see we’ve already got a jailbreak for iOS 4.3 coming sometime before next weekend and another one just around the corner! Wouldn’t you agree?

  • ThePartyMafia

    Huh! I don’t believe on the time slot given by them now.. They are most likely to postpone it any how..I have full regards for these lots but expect them to show the real deal instead of giving promising tweets.

      They are spending their time to do this. They don’t get a salary for this. I bet you wouldnt be b*tching if you Knew how long it takes and how much people expect from you.

    I just hope that windows will get it too 🙂

  • Adam

    I thouggt they were going to wait for 4.3.1 to come out or apple will just patch it? Would be pointless!

    • Shrike1978

      The spec that Apple would quickly release 4.3.1 was based on the idea that pwn2own would result in an exploit that would break 4.3. It didn’t. The iOS exploit that came out of pwn2own was for 4.2.1 and prior, and the presence of ASLR in 4.3 broke the pwn2own exploit.

  • Thanks for sharing information about jailbreak.

  • Nate

    I accidentally updated to iOS 4.3 yesterday and now you are my only hope. Please keep your words and deliver the jailbreak on time.

  • cerver7

    ^ @ Nate, you made a mistake, now they have to deliver on time?

    Listen people, read Williams post. Its the truth. Be patient and wait. Don’t be an ignorant jerk off. Don’t update to new FW if you require jailbreak, unlock or whatever. Thank the dev team and others for their work. They DO NOT get paid for this. They do this for fun and to help the rest of us out. Show some damn respect.

  • I am too excited! Thanks guys for all the work you put into jailbreaking.

  • James

    So much for waiting for 4.3.1, hes just rushing this now because Comex stole his thunder.

  • Nate

    cerver7, you misunderstood me, I didn’t demand them to deliver the jailbreak, my ipod touch fate is totally depend on them and I love my ipod touch, that’s why I’m begging them.

    • Zack

      Nate dont you have saved SHSH blobs for 4.2.1 or 4.1? Just untethered your jb there until the new 4.3 will be here.

  • Yay! I’ve been waiting for a while now for making cash out of jailbreaking peoples iPhones,iPads, and iPods p.s. I need free apps! From my itouch
