by casey on April 4, 2011

As we have already told you the good news. iPhone Dev Team has finally released untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV 2G. They have released two tools; redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 and PwnageTool 4.3 for this purpose. The jailbreak solution is available for the devices which includes iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1.

NOTE it is NOT compatible with iPad 2 device. iPad 2 users have to wait a little longer to get untethered 4.3.1 JB.

Remember the exploit used by iPhone Dev Team behind Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 is originally developed by Stefan Esser who is a security expert. Previously he handed over his exploit to the iPhone Dev Team. So a great thanks to Stefan Esser.

Although iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak was already possible but that was TETHERED using Sn0wbreeze 2.4 and PwngeTool. Now this time they have released the untethered version.
