iPhone Dev Team Confirms Untethered iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak Exploit is ‘Solid’, Quashes Spy Rumors

Two interesting little jailbreak tidbits to come out of hacker MuscleNerd’s Twitter account today with news of an untethered 4.3.1 jailbreak as well as his thoughts on rumors of a spy in the jailbreak camp.


First up we have confirmation from the big man that hacker i0n1c’s untethered 4.3.x jailbreak appears to be ‘solid’ with just a few final kinks to work out.


Hopefully this news means we won’t have to wait too long to jailbreak our updated iDevices without the fear associated with tethered hacks.

MuscleNerd also quashed rumors that there was a spy in the camp, with information being leaked to Apple to help the Cupertino company fix the SHAtter exploit in iOS 4.3, and more recently iPad 2 jailbreak exploit on iOS 4.3.1.

According to MuscleNerd’s Twitter and forum postings, the Dev Team wasn’t actually in on what Comex was working on when SHAtter was in the works, so they couldn’t have leaked anything even if they wanted to.

That solves that then!

Now, less tweeting and more hacking please Mr MuscleNerd!
