NOT Happening Now: iOS 4.3.4 Untethered Jailbreak Tutorial
Apple released iOS 4.3.4 a little bit ago, and some of the users out there had to update (or somehow made that mistake). The result was an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that couldn’t be jailbroken in the usually awesome untethered fashion. Granted… they can still jailbreak with a tethered method, although I don’t recommend using custom firmware as your primary (plus, tethered can actually make your life hell in many situations throughout our life). If your iPhone is the only phone you have… don’t go tethered. Something serious could happen and if your phone had already died previously that day, there isn’t a way to call for help. It’s not worth that risk.
Because of that downside to tethered jailbreaks (jailbreaks which require you to connect to the computer every time you want to boot it up), users often look for untethered jailbreaks (which boot normally). if you updated to iOS 4.3.4 though… you’re going to be out of luck for a while.
Apple has patched the PDF exploit that allows users to have that capability, as well as the other holes from the iOS 4.3.3 days. We still have the hardware exploit used by Limera1n back with iOS 4.1, so that’s why all current devices can still be jailbroken (except iPad 2).
The Comex, and the Dev team will have their work cut out for them to in making something for iOS 5, and they’re going to be focusing on that the most. As a result, you can expect not to see an untethered solution for iOS 4.3.4 any time soon.
We’ll keep you posted with anything significant that happens. Here, or on Facebook.
