iOS 4.3.3 untethered jailbreak out

Third time's the charm? For the releases in iOS 4.3.x, of course. Even if it isn't, at least users of Apple iDevices can take comfort in knowing that if they choose to do more with their device than Apple allows them to, at least that exploit that enabled i0n1c's jailbreak to work on 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 is still working for the release of iOS 4.3.3. With that, the iPhone Dev-Team has announced yesterday revised builds of redsn0w for Windows and Mac OS X, and PwnageTool for Mac OS X.

Compatible devices include:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • Apple TV 2G (v4.3 8F202)

A new feature of this redsn0w release is the ability to enable multitasking gestures. The iPad 2 continues to be unsupported for the time being, but development is still underway for a new exploit.

Download links for redsn0w and PwnageTool are available in this blog post.

think i had something similar when i tried to update to 4.3.2 and JB.
think its something to do with the hosts file blocking access to apple servers. i had 2 entries in mine which i removed then rebooted pc and it worked ok.

can you please elaborate? got the same problem here.

You need to update via iTunes first, this is the proper way of jailbreaking. Then locate the Ipsw and feed it to the jailbreak utility and put your iPod / iPhone to dfu mode and it'll work it's magic. This has always been the proper way of updating and jailbreaking.

... if the user requires their phone to be unlocked, they should stay away from redn0w and instead use sn0wbreeze which will preserve the baseband

Does 4.3.3 fix all the recent battery/lag/whatever issues? I've been avoiding it and sticking with 4.2.1...

They say so, but I stick with 4.2.1 as well for the moment

I tried sn0wbreeze and Redsn0w and it didn't work until I went thru iTunes to update it, and then JB it.. first time I had to do that

Doesnt work, I have been trying with my ipod touch 4g since yesterday and it reverts back to 4.3.2 even though I downloaded the 4.3.3 IPSW and there is no way to contact the devs

It worked fine for me. I updated my touch straight through iTunes first and then jailbroke it with redsn0w rinning in XP SP3 compatibility mode.

You have to update your iPod via iTunes and then run the IPSW thru redsn0w. It'll work then. I'm guessing you didn't update it with iTunes first which is why it stayed on 4.3.2
