They grow up so fast! The notorious Dev-Team has been keeping our iOS devices jailbroken and unlocked for a while now, including the latest iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak unleashed to celebrate the third anniversary of their PwnageTool application.
Jailbreakers, we have some good news for you if you were bummed by the earlier iBooks announcement. It's the iPhone Dev-Team to the rescue for you, as the latest update to their PwnageTool is now available for your downloading dispersal. The update brings untethered jailbreaking for devices that are running iOS 4.2.1 and also fixed the iBooks issue discovered earlier which could prevent a user from opening up an iBookstore purchase on their device.
With its promise of bringing personal hot spot support to the iPhone and returning the orientation switch to the iPad, there's good reason for people to be excited about the impending release of iOS 4.3. For those of us who refuse to wait for Apple to provide our iOS devices with additional functionality, the untethered Greenpois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is now available for immediate download. Fight the power!
My oh my, it's been a huge week for iPhone and iPad jailbreaking, hasn't it?
On Monday, word came down from the Library of Congress that Jailbreaking your iPhone (or any mobile handset) for the purpose of providing a carrier unlock or to purchase software from any App Store you darn well please has become 100% no grey-area legal. Today, those inclined to tinker with their iPhones and iPads were provided with another gift: a browser-based hack that will jailbreak just about any hardware rocking iOS.
