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 »

The procedure for installing this is similar to that of the previous versions of the iOS, meaning you will be needing bootrom exploit for installing the same in the root partition.
