iH8sn0w, the much known iPhone developer released Sn0wbreeze version 2.7 to bring support for the untethered jailbreak to iOS 4.3.3 and for the OS 4.2.8 on the Verizon iPhone 4. We had already shared the guide for the untethered jailbreak with PwnageTool bundles for the Verizon iPhone 4 on IOS 4.2.8. The current release of Sn0wbreeze will do great for those on the GSM a sit helps them to keep their existing baseband for the iPhone 4 and those with the iPhone 3GS. These can then be unlocked using the Ultrasn0w.
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 220.127.116.11 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.

The Dev team has released an update version of the Redsn0w and PwnageTool to make possible the jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 untethered. The release also mentioned that those with the unlock done with ultrasn0w should refrain from using Redsn0w. Also they should only use the custom IPSW to update to the latest version of the iOS..
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 is a new story building up with Geohot and his growing pleasure in hacking or jailbreaking any and every Sony Device. Sony is still hurt with Geohot successfully jailbreaking its Sony PlayStation 3 which forced Sony to file lawsuit against him. But that isn’t stopping him is it?
Geohot recently voiced his interest or rather vowing to be the first one to jailbreak the Sony Xperia Play aka the PSP Phone or Sony PlayStation Phone. The idea? Well it isn’t just about showing how vulnerable gadgets are but to enable full utilization of the gadget’s hardware.
