iOS 4.2.8

Everything You Need to Know About iOS 4.3.3 Jailbreak

Apple released iOS 4.3.3 (4.2.8 for Verizon iPhones) last Wednesday, less than three weeks after the previous software update. The new firmware included a fix for the location tracking file that Apple has gotten into so much water over (is that considered Cider?).

Chances are, most of you didn’t consider 4.3.3 big enough to update from 4.3.2. But with the Verizon iPad 2 problem fixed and the infamous tracking bug patched, we may not see another update until iOS 5 is released. If that’s the case, then this will likely be the last jailbreak for several months, so why not update?

Jailbreak iPhone 4.3.3 with Sn0wbreeze 2.7 [tutorial]

Most of you that have upgraded to Apple’s latest firmware, have probably already jailbroken your iDevices using RedSn0w or PwnageTool. If you haven’t yet, you may want to give Sn0wbreeze a try. As we reported earlier, the jailbreak software has joined the iOS 4.3.3 party, courtesy of i0n1c’s untether.

Although generally mentioned last when discussing jailbreak options, Sn0wbreeze  is still a good choice for jailbreakers looking to hack their iDevices with ease. It’s especially useful for folks with Verizon iPhones, as the software created by iH8sn0w is currently the only way to jailbreak 4.2.8…

Sn0wbreeze Updated to Support Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.3 and 4.2.8

As you’ve probably already seen with RedSn0w and PwnageTool, i0n1c has updated his untether exploit to support Apple’s latest firmware. Like the previously mentioned titles, Sn0wbreeze has been updated to support iOS 4.3.3.

This release comes less than 72 hours after Apple dropped the new iOS software, which fixes the location bug we told you about last month. Though many of you folks didn’t have much of a reason to upgrade, for those who did, we have you covered…

Apple Releases iOS 4.3.3 (4.2.8 for Verizon iPhone)

Well, that was a wee bit quicker than we expected, but Apple has released iOS 4.3.3 to the public.

Although the update was initially said to be released sometime in the next few weeks (it was about a week ago when they stated this), it looks like Apple has finished testing and has opted to release iOS 4.3.3 ahead of schedule.

Why the rush to release such an minor update? It’s just a sneaking suspicion, but it might have something to do with the bad press that Apple’s been receiving as of late due to a certain location tracking bug…
