[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he PDF exploit that was used in JailreakMe last year which allowed a one tap Jailbreak and a fast unlock for users. Apple had fixed the flaw in its early stages and now its back. Looks like that is the reason for the quick iPad 2 Jailbreak and the new exploit the Jailbreakers have been enjoying. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple acknowledged the exploit, and is working on an update. The said update will not only fix the JailbreakMe 3.0 exploit but also another exploit that could allow unwanted eyes to your information.

Did you buy an iPhone 4 with the latest baseband? or if you are one of those unlucky few who updated their iPhones back in October and are waiting for an Unlock? Well then a US$ 70 solution might be a relief for you. This generic chip comes with a custom tray, you have to attach the chip with your sim card and insert it into your iPhone 4, Much like the earlier popular TURBO SIM.
This chipset is supposedly going to unlock your iPhone 4 no matter what baseband or OS you are on. Check out a video of it in action below
The Dev Team had earlier announced that they will release an Unlock come iOS 4.3. But, the method they were using turned out to be a dud. In a new report Musclenerd tweeted that the team is working on an NCA exploit method which was originally found by geohot in the first version of the jesus phone (iPhone 2g).
Another member from the Dev-team put together a quick FAQ for information about the unlock
Since there is a lot of confusion out there, and since I’m repeating myself all the time (which I do not really like), I made this little write up of [...]
The Dev-Team and other members of the iPhone community, mainly Comex and CHPWN have displayed their abilities and the new iPad 2 is already jailbroken two days after its release. As always there is no information on when they will release this jailbreak to the public. Stay tuned
You can now download iOS 4.3 for you iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
The update also adds support for the new iPad 2 and additional functionality for AirPlay, a wireless feature that allows streaming of videos from an iDevice to an HDTV.
Here is the total spec Sheet
(% For all those relying on unlocks to use their devices should stay away from the update )About iOS 4.3 Software Update
iTunes is quite a money-baby for Apple. Right after the iTunes 4.2 which was supposed to enable sync with iOS 4.3, Home Sharing etc. the new update promisesImproved Home Sharing. Browse and play from your iTunes libraries with Home Sharing on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.3.
A good idea would be to continually update the software if you use premium services on iTunes. This keeps all your media and information safe. The update also fixes certain bugs, that were causing home sharing issues with the beta releases of iOS 4.3
Apple’s releasing the final version of iOS 4.3, which featuresNitro Javscript engine from Safari on OS X, iTunes Home Sharing Updated suite of AirPlay We also Get Wifi Hotspot for iPhone 4 Photo Booth and FaceTime It’ll be a free download for all iPads, the GSM iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS
A the picture above shows, the iOS 4.3 Beta 2 was released. Folks digging around in the developer files found that the iPad 2 will have a proximity sensor which might lock and unlock the device when its put in , or removed (respectively) from the cover.
This refuels the no home button rumors we heard about. Please Apple, don’t remove that home button.
A slight sigh of relief is shown by the fact that apple claims that multitasking functions are a test and will not be available in the final build of iOS 4.3 . This would definitely mean that the Home button still exists. It does, it doesn’t , we wont know until it’s finally [...]
