Apple released iOS 4.3.5 to the public on Tuesday which came as a bit of a surprise to many. This is the second update in a month and this new iOS version is not expected to receive an untethered jailbreak anytime soon. The advice from the iPhone Dev Team is to stay away from this is you want an untethered jailbreak.
The warning was issued by @MuscleNerd who is a prominent member of the iPhone Dev Team and he advised jailbreakers to stay away from the iOS 4.3.5 update on his Twitter account.
The new iOS 4.3.5 came as a surprise for so many people especially when you consider that iOS 5 is being developed and due for release early in the Fall. iOS 4.3.5 update was issued and includes a fix for a security issue when validating certificates but not much else was changed as far as we know.
There is no untethered jailbreak available and there might not be seeing as though iOS 5 is fast approaching. If you do want a jailbreak you can still get a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w. With the tethered jailbreak you are required to plug your device into a computer running Redsn0w every time it starts up in order to boot it into jailbroken state and this can be a pain.
As for untethered jailbreaks it is suspected that the jailbreaking community might not want to expose any more vulnerabilities in the iOS code at the moment as they would be fixed in iOS 5. If this is the case it will mean that jailbreaking iOS 5 will be easier and it will happen much quicker when it is released. For the time being users are urged to stick with iOS 4.3.3 or earlier and not to upgrade if they want to keep their untethered jailbreaks. Read more...
