iOS 4.3 Jailbreak: GM Version Cracked Open Already

Earlier on we wrote an article which asked the question who would be the first team to successfully jailbreak the iPad 2, but now it seems a breakthrough has been made. The jailbreak tool known as PwnageTool has successfully managed to jailbreak the GM version of iOS 4.3, meaning that a full jailbreak could be imminent.

For those of you who are familiar with PwnageTool, version 4.2 of the software is needed to jailbreak iOS 4.3 GM, but of course you’ll still require the iOS 4.3 download, which can only be obtained via a developer account with Apple.

Providing you have this and the newest version of iTunes 10.2 installed, you can then go ahead and start the PwnageTool 4.2 jailbreak for iOS 4.3. According to RedmondPie, Cydia has already been confirmed to be supported by this jailbreak, but you’ll want to note that this jailbreak is tethered, meaning that you’ll need to repeat the process each time you reboot your iPhone 4.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you surprised that it has been jailbroken in a matter of hours? Don’t be surprised if hackers manage to jailbreak the full version of iOS 4.3 on March 11th. You can view more details on how to get this jailbreak working over at RedmondPie – they have included pictures and videos for you.
