iOS 4.3.1 Gets A More Convenient Jailbreak Method

Would-be Jailbreakers on iOS 4.3.1: time to party!

A jailbreak has been available for iOS 4.3.1 for a few weeks now — but up until this point, it’s been “tethered”. (Geek-speak translator: it was a somewhat inferior jailbreak, in that it was undone any time the handset was reset). At an absurdly early hour this morning, the iPhone Dev-Team released a new build of their redsn0w jailbreaking tool. The big bullet point? Untethered jailbreaking for iOS 4.3.1.

As usual, tread with caution around these new hacks (for example, note that if you need to unlock your handset for use on another carrier, this jailbreak isn’t quite ready for you). Ready to dive in? Find all the details over here.
