Great Progress Being Made on iOS 4.3.x Untethered Jailbreak

By , Mar 30, 2011

Dev Team member MuscleNerd has made it known that things are looking good as far as the 4.3.x untethered jailbreak is concerned.

On Monday, we reported on the fact that an untether had indeed been accomplished. Shortly thereafter, via Twitter, MuscleNerd confirmed that the Dev Team is implementing that untether into their upcoming jailbreak.

While there is of course no solid ETA for a release of the jailbreak, judging from the screenshot posted on his Twitter account, it’s probably not that far off…

This screenshot is a confirmation that progress is being made, as the jailbreak portion has obviously been accomplished, and they’re working on getting Cydia working correctly, but aren’t quite there just yet.

I’m really looking forward to this jailbreak; reaping the benefits that Apple implemented with iOS 4.3 along with enjoying the flexibility that jailbreaking offers sounds like a win/win proposition to me.

Who else can’t wait?

    It’s funny but I don’t know if I would love my iphone as much as i do now if the time comes when we can’t jailbreak it :-/

      So agree with u on this 1 hommie

      • JustSomeGuy

        hommie? This would be pronounced HAH-ME… You mean homie….

    • Amoeba

      my iPhone goes on eBay the day we can’t jailbreak.

    • zuzijo

      Me too ….. Am already thinking of switching to the Galaxy ……

      • DomPerignon

        Switch to a HTC Evo. You’re going to love it.

    I know I would not. The only two things I really need are SBSettings and LockInfo. Without Lockinfo, I find the iPhone inferior to a Blackberry as a business email device since checking for new mail requires a swipe, password (which is critical on a business device, and several clicks. With LockInfo a glance is sufficient. That’s a might-and-day useability difference. Of course if Apple would simply allow users to have a Today-style theme, maybe this wouldn’t be necessary.

    I used sn0wbreeze on 4.3.1 and Cyfia works fine. If only pkgbackup did.

    • DomPerignon

      PkgBackup hasn’t been working as good as it used to, since version 4.2.7; this was the last version that worked flawlessly.

    I think @comex or @dev-team supposed to just release untethered jb tool for iOS 4.3, no need to hold it, since apple already patch the jb on iOS 4.3.1, so jb-ers can feel the 4.3 and also the new i4 owner with 4.3 on it can jb, am I right?

        So your a bigot congratulations! so do you hate Sebastian too for his accent ? Your a fucking moron go back to your neonazi blogs and leave us alone.

    • Burge

      Because more than lightly it was the jailbreak that was fixed not the untether..

      • Burge

        So why should a jailbreak come out for a firmware that has been surpassed already..I want 4.3.1 not 4.3..

    • Gw

      Dasar Sotoy!!
      Pardon my language 

  • Ck

    Will It work on iPad2?

  • great news here

  • Jason Masters

    What significant updates are in 4.3? Seems a useless update just to close up holes that’s all?

    • Billy

      4.3.1 is an useless update to close up holes but 4.3 added, as the most useful update, Airplay to third-party apps. While this may not sound like much to most people now (other than Apple TV owners and macbook owners with AirPlayer) it will when all planned Airplay-complying hardware comes out such as speakers, since they will be no cables required to beam audio and video to other devices right from the apps on your iOS devices.

    You know what that screen shoot mean, look at the clock 3:30 I think it will be released today.

  • jason

  • Trevor

    • Bahbeeh

  • Nico

    It’s also coming out for 4.3.1, people. Didn’t you watch i0n1c’s video with the iPod Touch 4? It WAS on 4.3.1.

  • Ernesto Castellanos

    Just yesterday I updated my iPhone 4 to 4.3.1… HOW DO I GO BACK TO 4.2??
    Hahahaha!!! J/K… I’m okay. I did it on purpose. I realized I didn’t need to be jailbroken in order to enjoy my iPhone.

    • Jason Masters

      Wow you realized that all by yourself? Amazing! Do you tie your own shoes too? You are a very smart person smart indeed!

    Don’t really care about my iPhone. I’m happily jailbroken on 4.2.1. What I really need is a jailbreak for my iPad 2. I don’t get why the 4.3 JB can’t be released for it. I haven’t updated.

  • Rayjay

    Hope so we get JB and unlock soon as possible…. bought 3gs but got 4.3.1 updated! damned

  • jagzc
