Jailbreak iPod touch 4.3.4 Using PwnageTool Bundle [How To Tutorial]

Earlier today, Apple released iOS 4.3.4 to close the PDF jailbreak hole which was exposed by Comex’s JailbreakMe 3.0. We have already warned you NOT to update to 4.3.4 if you want to keep your untethered jailbreak. If you updated by mistake, you can downgrade back to 4.3.3 and enjoy full untethered jailbreak as long as you have saved SHSH blobs for the firmware you are downgrading on.

But in case you just bought a new device, and it came with iOS 4.3.4, then you are pretty much out of luck for an untethered jailbreak.

Thankfully, we have managed to create our own custom PwnageTool bundles which can tether jailbreak the just released iOS 4.3.4 on iPhone 4, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4G. These bundles can be used to create custom pwned 4.3.4 firmware files (with Cydia) which you can restore your device on.
