So it seems like the iOS 4.3 and 4.3.1 untethered Jailbreak will be released this weekend after all! Twitter is buzzing today with the topic of #sundayisfunday and i0n1c himself started it (as many of you know, it’s i0n1cs exploit that we will see used in the iOS 4.3/4.3.1 untetherd Jailbreak). Check it out:
The most famous member of the iPhone Dev Team, Musclenerd, tweeted yesterday and told the world of the significant progress made on the iOS 4.3+ Jailbreak!
Just after Apple announced that the future of it’s iOS will be demoed at WWDC 2011, there have been numerous reports that iOS 5 will feature improved voice commands. According to a report by TechCrunch, Siri could be the “key component” in the next major mobile operating system release.
iDevice hacker Comex, who is known for his untethered userland based jailbreak tools such as Spirit and JailbreakMe 2.0, has confirmed through a series of tweets that Apple has patched his kernel exploit in iOS 4.3.1 (this was the same exploit that they used to Jailbreak the iPad 2 right after it’s launch).
Alright so I have been doing some research and scanning peoples Twitters and I have come to the conclusion there there will not be a “JailbreakMe 3.0”. There are two pieces of evidence that lead me to this conclusion, the fist is rather obvious – take a look:
This morning Apple released iOS 4.3.1, which as many of you know, the Dev Team, i0n1c and Comex were waiting to release the untethered Jailbreak for all iDevices until 4.3.1 was released. It was actually supposed to be released in about a week (according to rumors), but I guess Apple decided to launch the update earlier than expected. That being said, the members of the iOS hacking community will need some time to test the exploit and Jailbreak tools on all iDevices (including but not limited to the iPad 2). iOS 4.3 isn’t necessarily a major update, it simply fixes some minor bugs, vulnerabilities (most likely the ones
Great news for iPad 2 users (I didn’t cover this earlier because I wasn’t sure that it was true or not but now it looks more likely with p0sixninja’s new tweet), it seems that Greenpois0n could get an update to include iOS 4.3 support (whether it would just be for iPad 2 users or not is unknown). Here are a couple interesting tweets that lead me to believe that this could be true:
Before you check out the infographic (pictured below), it seems that all signs point to a 4 inch display on the next gen iPhone! 9to5mac listed an Italian blog that claims that there are cases to support the 4 inch screen, and to add to that, there is a book listing on Amazon called iPhone 5 Made Simple (check it out). Now who knows if these rumors are true or not – however, it seems like there have been a lot of cases popping up and 9to5mac has coverage on all of them (this can only be a good sign)! The very talented
If you read my post from the other day (click here) then you’ll know that there was some confusion about whether or not the exploit that i0n1c had discovered is closed in iOS 4.3.1 (which is set to be launched in roughly two weeks). Well according to Chronic, it’s not closed: This most likely means is that they will wait for iOS 4.3.1 to be released before they make the Jailbreak available – which again is rumored to be about 2 weeks. Obviously thats a pretty wide time frame however, I don’t want to give an exact date and have it be wrong.
