With the release of an updated iOS 4.3.3 untethered jailbreak, the Dev Team has also released an update to PwnageTool for Mac OSX users.
PwnageTool 4.3.3 incorporates i0n1c’s updated iOS 4.3.3 untethered exploit. PwnageTool 4.3.3 will allow you to safely restore to an already jailbroken iOS 4.3.3 firmware and preserve your current 1.59.00 baseband so that you may use UltraSn0w to unlock your iPhone… Read More

It has been less than three days since iOS 4.3.3 was released by Apple and the iPhone Dev Team has already released an untethered jailbreak for the latest iOS firmware.
As we stated earlier this week, for some odd reason Apple still has not patched hacker i0n1c’s untethered exploit in iOS 4.3.3. Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 provides an untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.3 for the iPhone 4 (GSM), iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPad 1, and Apple TV 2G. This jailbreak does not support iPad 2 users. Read More

There are now several ways to jailbreak your iPhone running iOS 4.3.2. RedSn0w, PwnageTool, and Sn0wBreeze will all jailbreak the iPhone on 4.3.2.
4.3.2 hasn’t been out for that long, but i0n1c’s untethered exploit has already been implemented into three of the most popular jailbreak tools.

The Dev Team has updated the popular jailbreak tool, PwnageTool, with an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2. PwnageTool now joins RedSn0w and Sn0wbreeze as the third tool that can jailbreak iOS 4.3.2.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to use PwnageTool to jailbreak your iPhone 4.3.2 while also preserving your baseband. PwnageTool is for Mac OS X only and is the only way to preserve your baseband to make sure you can unlock later… Read More

Following the release of the updated PwnageTool 4.3.2 jailbreak tool, the iPhone Dev Team has also pushed out an update to the UltraSn0w unlock in Cydia.
UltraSn0w 1.2.2 has been released to support the new iOS 4.3.2 firmware, as the previous version of UltraSn0w (1.2.1) was broken in iOS 4.3.2. Please note, this will only work for the older iPhone 4 baseband 1.59.00, and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, 5.13.04, and 6.15.00. It can not unlock newer basebands since there is currently no unlock available.

Sunday is “funday,” so the iPhone Dev Team has just released an update to their PwnageTool jailbreak tool for Mac OSX users. PwnageTool 4.3.2 incorporates i0n1c’s updated iOS 4.3.2 untethered exploit. The previous version of PwnageTool was only capable of a tethered jailbreak.
PwnageTool 4.3.2 will allow you to safely restore to an already jailbroken iOS 4.3.2 firmware and preserve your current 1.59.00 baseband so that you can use UltraSn0w to unlock your iPhone… Read More

Yesterday, the Dev Team released their RedSn0w untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 4.3.2. While the jailbreak was working fine with most devices, there seemed to be issues with the iPhone 4, which would randomly get stuck on reboot.
With the help of i0n1c, the Dev Team fixed RedSn0w and updated it to version 0.9.6rc14. If you already ran 0.9.6rc13, you can simply download RedSn0w 0.9.6rc14 and run it over the previous one… Read More

Only moments ago we told you that i0n1c released his untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2. The download that i0n1c posted consisted of the jailbreak code, instead of an actual tool for end users.
Right after i0n1c’s release, the Dev Team has updated the RedSn0w jailbreak tool with iOS 4.3.2 support. RedSn0w will successfully jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 and is available on both Mac OS X and Windows. Read More

Great news coming out of the Twitter-sphere today, as Stefan Esser, better known by his Twitter handle, @i0n1c, has confirmed that Apple has left his untether vulnerability in iOS 4.3.2.
That means that as our report speculated yesterday, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 is possible, and will certainly be released sometime in the not-too-distant future.
According to Esser, his iPad 1 is already running iOS 4.3.2 with an untethered jailbreak.
The question is, when can the general public expect the next version of RedSn0w and PwnageTool? Read More

With the iPhone Dev Team’s inability to find a usable baseband exploit for the iPhone 4 and release a stable unlock for basebands 2.10.04, 3.10.01, and the newer 4.10.01, several alternate iPhone 4 unlock solutions have sprouted.
The first option was the Gevey SIM Interposer. Similar to a Turbo SIM, the Gevey SIM Interposer worked by adding a EEPROM chip to your SIM card. You would then call 112 from the Emergency Dialer screen. Once the call connected you would hang up then toggle Airport mode on and off. When the network connection resumed, your iPhone 4 would be unlocked.
This method would provide a “tethered” unlock, meaning that after you reboot your iPhone, you would need to repeat the unlock process. While the legality of the unlock solution was questionable at first, Dev Team member, MuscleNerd, confirmed the unlock method was illegal. Read More

After recently releasing their jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 via PwnageTool and RedSn0w, the Dev Team is now getting ready to unleash their UltraSn0w unlock.
The current 4.3.1-compatible UltraSn0w is currently being tested by a few beta testers, and according to a tweet by Dev Team front man MuscleNerd, if everything goes well, UltraSn0w should be released tonight… Read More

The Dev Team has updated the RedSn0w jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 to version 0.9.6rc11. The latest version of RedSn0w adds the custom boot logo option we originally saw in GreenPois0n.
Jailbreaking with RedSn0w is still essentially the same process, but the new “allow boot animation” option gives you the ability to install custom boot logos through Cydia. Read More

After much anticipation, the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak was released early this morning, but I guess the actual time depends on where you live.
This is the first untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.3.1. There have been other jailbreaks for iOS 4.3.1 but they were tethered and had issues with stability.
Finally, we have a stable and working iOS 4.3.1 solution; actually we have many solutions, as you’ll see below. Big thanks to @i0n1c for his untether, and the iPhone Dev Team for their hard work at making this a reality… Read More

It’s here, folks. After weeks of anticipation, the Dev Team just released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. This jailbreak is mostly due to the untether exploit found by i0n1c.
This jailbreak works with every device that supports iOS 4.3.1, except for the iPad 2. So to be clear, this jailbreak will work with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, and the second generation of Apple TV… Read More

Just to preface this before anyone gets the wrong idea; there is still no new baseband unlock available.
Now that the formalities are out of the way, I think it’s safe to tell you that new details have been revealed about the existing baseband unlock and its compatibility with the soon to be released untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1.
Depending on when the jailbreak is actually released, if you rely on an unlock, you may have to wait a while until a new version of UltraSn0w is released. This is due to some compatibility issues between iOS 4.3.1 and the current version of UltraSn0w.
Fortunately, you won’t have to wait long, as the latest tweets from members of the iPhone Dev Team confirm… Read More

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! Read More

Get your Twitter hats on folks, and start promoting #sundayisfunday!
Stefan Esser, the hacker who found the untethered exploit in iOS 4.3.1, says that, “Maybe that would make the dev-team release.”
As we previously reported, Esser, who goes by i0n1c on Twitter, provided the untether to the DevTeam so that they could use it in the upcoming releases of RedSn0w and PwnageTool – the jailbreak supports all devices capable of running iOS 4.3.1, except for the iPad 2… Read More

Stefan Esser, better known as the iPhone hacker i0n1c, has released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. In a recent tweet, i0n1c gave the download link to the latest untethered jailbreak we’ve all been waiting for.
The only catch is that the file is password protected. And i0n1c isn’t giving out the password… Read More

Can you feel it in the air? I surely can. I get the same feeling before virtually every big jailbreak solution.
There’s an eerie quiet among the folks taking the lead in the jailbreaking community, demos have been demonstrated, and tweets have been tweeted.
Now all we can do is wait, and wait patiently. Although we’re expecting it literally any hour or day now, it’s always a nice surprise when it finally arrives…
To tide us over, MuscleNerd dropped a few hints about the imminence of the Dev Team’s new version of RedSn0w and PwnageTool; each will support 4.3.1… Read More

The Windows jailbreak tool, Sn0wbreeze, was recently updated to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1. We told you about the newest beta release a couple days ago, and many of you have successfully been able to jailbreak your iPhone on 4.3.1.
The biggest downer with the current Sn0wbreeze beta is that it’s a tethered jailbreak, and we’ve recommended holding off on iOS 4.3.1 until an untethered solution is released from the Dev Team.
To our surprise, an iDB reader sent us a video of his iPhone 3GS running an untethered jailbreak after using the latest Sn0wbreeze 2.4b1… Read More
