PwnageTool iOS 4.3 beta jailbreak released

Just one day after Apple released the iOS 4.3 beta to developers, there's an (unofficial) version of PwnageTool that can jailbreak the new OS. The new PwnageTool is based on the Limera1n exploit that has been around for a while now.

As with any jailbreak, you should be careful to back up your phone before installing any custom firmware files. This version of PwnageTool will not preserve your baseband, which means that it will break any carrier unlocking you've already done. Basebands are notoriously hard to downgrade, and an "official" PwnageTool carrier unlock won't be released til iOS 4.3 is out of beta, so use caution.
