As usual, jailbreakers and unlockers should wait before updating to iOS 4.3.1, warns MuscleNerd.

“Unlockers please stay away from today’s iOS 4.3.1! Just to be extra safe, so should future iPad2 jailbreakers (for now)”

“(It’s very unlikely they fixed the bug in comex’s unreleased iPad2 jailbreak, but you never know. Better to wait for confirmation first.)”

We’ll keep you update with more information on iOS 4.3.1 as it becomes available.

Couple of days back, Boy Genius Report reported that Apple is planning to release iOS 4.3.1 within one to two weeks to fix number of bugs and also fix the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability.

BGR now reports that iOS 4.3.1 might also improve the battery life of the iOS device. It looks like some users have noticed significant decrease in battery life after upgrading to iOS 4.3.

BGR reports:

One of our Apple connects just installed the unreleased and unseen iOS 4.3.1 build on one of our iPhones, and we’ve been playing around with it for a couple days. We reported the changes from iOS 4.3 a few days back, and it really does look as if iOS 4.3.1 will simply fix bugs, hence the version numbering. Battery life seems a tad bit better, though that’s not scientific at all. Our source says we should continue to expect iOS 4.3.1 in the next 1-2 weeks, just as we previously reported.

Apple released Apple TV software update 4.2.1 (which is essentially iOS 4.3.1) to fix issues with flickering, waking from sleep and audio output so it seems likely that Apple will release a software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch shortly.

Have you seen a significant decrease in battery life after upgrading to iOS 4.3? Please let us know in the comments section below.

As any astute follower of the “pay-as-you-go” world knows, there are quite a few back alley Cricket dealers (and quite a few main street ones as well) that will happily flash any phone you give them for use on their network — and not even Verizon’s CDMA iPhone is immune. Ready to jump ship from “America’s largest?” Of course, you’ll have to jailbreak, install some third party MMS software, and trust some random dude at the Cricket store with your precious smartphone. We’re not saying it’s wise, but it is possible, as the video below attests. Continue reading »

Good news, iPad 3G owners. If you were lucky enough to snag one of those coveted unlimited data plans with your original AT&T iPad, you won’t have to toss it when upgrading next week. The carrier has confirmed to us that those who currently have the aforementioned plan will be able to keep it on their account when upgrading to the iPad 2, which in turns gives you no reason whatsoever to turn down the opportunity. Except for the lack of a USB port, SD card slot and a screen that touts the exact same resolution as the first model, of course.
