The Dev Team will be releasing the official untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 very soon. As you might have already heard, the jailbreak was teased on Twitter yesterday.

Today, it has been confirmed that the official release will drop in less than 24 hours. We’ve got details and times after the break!

The 4.3.1 jailbreak will be available through a new version of RedSn0w and PwnageTool. RedSn0w will be available on Windows and Mac OS X. PwnageTool, like always, will be available on the Mac. PwnageTool will be the tool needed for those wishing to preserve their unlocked baseband.

If you already have the tethered jailbreak from the latest Sn0wBreeze beta, you shouldn’t need to do a full restore.

To be safe, make sure you backup your packages. If you need an unlock on 4.3.1, you’ll need a custom .ipsw file. No attention has been paid by the Dev Team to a new unlock.

The untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 will be compatible with all iDevices, except for the iPad 2.

The new versions of RedSn0w and PwnageTool are scheduled to be released at GMT-8. That translates to:

  • 12 AM Pacific Time
  • 1 AM Mountain Time
  • 2 AM Central Time
  • 3 AM Eastern Time

The Dev Team should release their jailbreak at midnight tonight on the west coast.

Stay tuned to iDB for breaking news on the upcoming jailbreak. We’ll have release announcements and tutorials for you once the jailbreak is released.

It’s almost here, folks! Are you excited?

UPDATE: The jailbreak has been released! Check out everything you need to know here!

    I hope I don’t get slammed for this question. My main computer is a mac but I could not jailbreak 4.3 or 4.3.1 on it so I copied my iTunes to my PC and used the hex edit to fool the iTunes on PC. I was able to jailbreak my iPhone iOS 4.3.1 on my PC using snowbreeze and ibooty. Now if I want to the untethered JB what do I do? Can I try it on my Mac this time? Am I going to lose my Cydia apps? Do I do the untethred on too of my current jailbreak? I’m pretty confused and new to all of this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry about the wall of words.

    • Chris

      No, just jailbreak through redsn0w and you shouldnt lose anything. Backup to be safe though,

  • Jon

    I have ipad 3.2 firmware (old i know lol) Jailbroken. When I upgrade the firmware to 4.3.1, will I lose all apps + data that I’ve installed (without legally purchasing) or will itunes back it all up and restore it along with the 4.3.1 firmware?

    • Chris

      You will need to backup your ipad, and transfer purchases. Also before you backup download aptbackup on cydia so you can backup all your cydia packages. Then upgrade and then jailbreak. Goto cydia and install aptbackup again. Then restore your ipad from backup, then goto aptbackup and install everything. Then sync your ipad.

    • moimoimoimoi

      or try pkgbackup from cydia – it will backup preferences, sources, etc — works pretty well

  • Steve

    Is this going to eventually work for IPAD 2 ? I just bought it, but did not upgrade the OS.

    • once the dev team finds a exploit to jailbreak the iPad 2 you can do it

    • shaun

      if you are still on 4.3 the jailbreak may come really soon do not update to 4.3.1. 4.3 still contains the userland jailbreak and hopefully Chronic will release it soon.

    will i be able to jailbreak and unlock my iPhone 3gs running 4.3.1 with a firmware version 5.16.02?

    • joeab928

      I was wondering the same thing. I just updated my 3gs to 4.3.1 also which changed my firmware to 5.16.02. So I was also wondering if anyone knows if there will be any issues with this. I read that sn0wbreeze supported base bands other than this one.

      • rocker
