If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using PwnageTool 4.3 for Mac, Sn0wbreeze 2.5 for Windows or Redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 that was released by iPhone Dev Team couple of days back and noticed issues such as single signal bar etc. then iPhone Dev team has announced that a fix is on its way.
He had also handed over the the untethered iOS 4.3 jailbreak to iPhone Dev team so that they could test it before releasing it to users. MuscleNerd, one of the members of the iPhone Dev team has revealed that the untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak is ‘solid’.
0n1c has demonstrated a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. Previously, i0n1c also demonstrated the same untether working on iOS 4.3. Below you can read his description of the video and his plans for release.
In the video you can see how I switch off the iPod, then restart it, show the version, show that it is tethered and has the multitasking gestures, i show that you can buy ringtones and then I show cydia and the ninja jump game from last time.
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.
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.
