The game of cat and mouse continues....Devs vs. Apple... Apple released iOS 4.3.4. This update closes the JailBreakMe.com exploit.
***iPAD 2 OWNERS: JailbreakMe.com is the only working Jailbreak for iPad 2 and ONLY on iOS 4.3.3, STAY AWAY FROM 4.3.4***
4.3.4 is already Jailbroken using Redsn0w and PWNage, but is a TETHERED JAILBREAK, and currently recommended for Kernal hackers only. These methods do not work on iPad 2.
Tweets are coming through saying "DO NOT expect an UN-Tethered Jailbreak anytime soon" for 4.3.4. With iOS 5 right around the corner, any known exploits need to be saved.....
As of 7:30 AM CST, Apple was still signing 4.3.3, so this is your last chance to update to 4.3.3....
To do this, download the appropriate version of 4.3.3 here.
Plug in your device, launch iTunes, then power off your device.
Put your phone in DFU Mode. Click here for details on how to do it.
Once in DFU Mode, hold the left SHIFT key and click on RESTORE. From here, select the 4.3.3 IPSW you downloaded above.
If it's too late and iTunes is no longer signing....you will be S.O.L. IF YOU DO not have the appropriate SHSH blobs to do this manually.
For those of you who might need the procedure to down grade from 4.3.4 and you have your 4.3.3 SHSH Blobs saved to Cydia, follow this link to Redmondpie.com, as always, the have a great tutorial.
Now hurry up and see if you can get your device to 4.3.3 while Apple is still signing.
