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.

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 »
