We are at a crucial time in the jailbreaking community. I call this the edge of our seats situation where all eyes rest on one person, or one development team waiting for the crucial breakthrough to be made in providing a stable, distributable jailbreak. In October 2010 the communities eyes focused solely on the Chronic Dev Team as they prepared us for the release of the GreenPPois0n tool, then without warning George Hotz (a.k.a. Geohot) pipped them to the post with the last minute release of Limera1n.
The just released PwnageTool 4.3.3 by the iPhone Dev Team can jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad (1st-gen), iPod touch 4G/3G, Apple TV, and at the same time will help retain the old baseband for iPhone 4 and 3GS users so that they can unlock using Ultrasn0w.
The just released iOS 4.3 GM brings some extra perks to iPad users, namely: Multitouch Gestures. These gestures can be used to do variety of tasks such as three finger app switching, going back to the homescreen by simple pinching out on the app you’re running using your fingers etc. Want all this goodness on your iPhone 4? Just follow the guide posted after the break and you’ll have multitouch gestures up and running in no time.
iPhone developer and hacker Nadeem97 has released PwnageTool bundles which can jailbreak iPhone 4 and 3GS untethered on iOS 4.2.1, in the process preserves the old 01.59.00 baseband for iPhone 4 and 05.13.04 baseband for iPhone 3GS so that you can unlock with the existing version of Ultrasn0w.
