for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPad 1 and Apple TV 2G users.
Three years ago (almost to the day!), the first version of PwnageTool was released for firmware 1.1.4.  So today we’re excited to release another edition of both PwnageTool and redsn0w to bring an untethered jailbreak for Apple ’s latest firmware, FW 4.3.1.
WARNING WARNING — ultrasn0w users don’t update yet!  See a few paragraphs down!
The 4.3.1 untether exploit comes courtesy of Stefan Esser (@i0n1c on twitter), a security researcher based in Germany.  Stefan has a long history of vulnerability research, and ironically his first contribution to the iPhone jailbreak community was 
— last year he beat Apple to the punch and implemented ASLR for jailbroken iPhones with his “antid0te” framework. We’re happy to see that Stefan then turned his iPhone attention over to an untethered jailbreak exploit!
The 4.3.1 untether works on all devices that actually support 4.3.1 
The reason the untether won’t work as-is on the iPad2 is that it requires a bootrom or iBoot-level exploit to install, and the iPad2 is not susceptible to either the limera1n or SHAtter bootrom exploits.
WARNING WARNING — ultrasn0w users don’t update yet!
We need to first release an update to ultrasn0w that fixes some incompatibilities when FW 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w.  And remember once we do fix ultrasn0w for 4.3.1 (we’ll announce it here and on twitter),
from PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze or xpwn!  Don’t ever try to restore or update to a stock IPSW, or you’ll lose the unlock!
For everyone else, redsn0w is the easier program to use (and redsn0w runs on both Mac and Windows).
PwnageTool 4.3 and Redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 support the following iOS devices for iOS 4.2.1:
(PwnageTool 4.3 only)
. Dev team is trying to figure out how to legally distribute 
to add support for it.
iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone users who don’t care about unlocking are better off using Redsn0w as one doesn’t need to preserve baseband like iPhone users. Since the tools have just been released, they could be buggy so please proceed with caution and also check the comments for feedback from fellow readers.
