Well, the latest batch of jailbreak solutions for the iPhone and other iOS devices seem to have come along pretty quickly. Just a few weeks ago, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 was released, but very shortly afterward, Apple released 4.3.2. We all assumed that it was Apple’s way of patching up the jailbreak, but it turns out that it didn’t fix the untether exploit used in 4.3.1, so it was used for 4.3.2 with success. Besides, does Apple really release these updates to break jailbreak exploits? It’s not like users of jailbroken phones are rushing to get the latest, inconsequential iOS updates whenever they hit.
For those of you who might be venturing into this realm for the first time, you’ll be able to upload apps that haven’t been approved by Apple via Cydia, and you’ll also have a number of customization options at your disposal. It really opens up the iPhone to more possibilities and customization – something some users really can’t live without. Of course, you’ll have to exercise a bit of caution, both with the jailbreaking process and what you do with your phone afterwards, but if you stick to directions precisely you should be fine.
If you’re looking to jailbreak the latest iOS version for your device, here are the ones that are supported:
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
Notably absent is the iPad 2, so those of you who are rocking the latest and greatest Apple tablet, you’ll just have to wait a bit longer.
