Hot off the heels of the new iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak, there seems to be word going around that the jailbreak causes WiFi issues.

@i0n1c, the hacker who found the untethered kernel exploit for iOS 4.3.1 which the Dev Team intergrated into the RedSn0w jailbreak utility, clears up some confusion regarding the WiFi issues…

i0n1c mentioned via Twitter that the one of the reasons the RedSn0w/PwnageTool utility had been delayed was the mysterious WiFi issues. Later on they found out it wasn’t the jailbreak that was causing the issues, but rather the new iOS 4.3.1.

BTW: One of the reasons why the PwnageTool + RedSn0w tool was delayed was do to the mysterious WiFi issues. Turns out the issues also occur without a jailbreak.

According to i0n1c, the issues can be resolved for some iPhone owners by simply rebooting the router.
