While all those with the Verizon iPhone 4 have been long waiting for the untether jailbreak. I mean users with the iPhone 4, iPod Touch and the iPad have already for their jailbreak when the iPhone Dev Team released Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 and the PwnageTool 188.8.131.52 for the untethered jailbreak but things had been a bit slow for those with the CDMA based iPhone. There was an earlier release by iH8sn0w that let users on Windows jailbreak their device with Sn0wbreeze 2.7.1 today the developer released PwnageTool 4.2 Bundles for the same.

We had mentioned the release of the Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 by the iPhone Dev Team a day before and mentioned that the release will support untethered jailbreak for all iOS 4.3.3 devices. And as the release makes way the Web gets flooded with how tos and guides on jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch or the iPad. We thought about posting step by step guide for our readers but came across this helpful tutorial from our friends at RP and thought we would rather share this to help simplify the process.

For all the Windows users out there, iPhone developer iH8sn0w released a latest version of Sn0wbreeze 2.6 to enable jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 untethered on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and the iPod Touch. As mentioned earlier for the Redsn0w method, this version does not yet support jailbreak for the iPad 2.
The initial jailbreak for the iOS 4.3.2 came with the PwnageTool but it had been reported that it was limited to tethered boot alone. But the recent releases of both the Redsn0w and the Sn0wbreeze users can jailbreak their iOS devices untethered running on the iOS 4.3.2 firmware. Coming back to the jailbreak guide for the Sn0wbreeze, users will first need to download the following tools and files and then follow the steps mentioned:
In a tweet earlier, Comex, the guy behind JailbreakMe and Spirit jailbreak tools confirmed that untethered jailbreak was still possible on the iOS 4.3.2 with the i0n1c’s exploit. The exploit was the same used for untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1.
From his tweet:
@comex: By the way, iOS 4.3.2 is (as far as I can see) still vulnerable to @i0n1c’s untether vulnerability.
It will be interesting to see if Apple is able to cover up these vulnerabilities in the operating system to make these exploits and thus the jailbreaks impossible. But given how essential these are in making the device more usable [in my humble opinion], Apple should not resort to doing anything that angers its users. Read More »
We have been talking quite a lot about the iOS 4.3 on Startup Meme and thought it was time that we shared a method on how to jailbreak the iOS 4.3 for the iPad. This method is at present tethered only meaning that you will have to boot the device into jailbreak mode each time you restart your device.
There have been many request lately on people inquiring about the untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak for all the existing iOS devices. The Chronic Dev team had been in works and has finally released the GreenPois0n RC5 for all Apple. The major difference between GreenPois0n RC5 and the Redsn0w 0.9.7 is that you aren’t required to have the SHSH blobs of 4.2 beta 3 on Cydia.
I know how frustrating it is at times to have a beta release of the latest iOS and not being able to take it for a spin as it is only for the developers. However a method has been found which would enable users to restore their iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad on iOS 4.3 Beta without necessarily having to have a developer account.
Almost all the folks I know personally are always looking for a way to downgrade baseband of iPhone 3G from 06.15.00 to 5.13.xx. The reason is that the latest baseband of iPhone 3G cannot be unlocked using the ultrasn0w unlock tool. Guess what? There’s a method that can be used to restore your iPhone 3G to the official firmware using the iTunes.
