Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 on OS X or Windows with PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze

A jailbreak of iOS 4.3.1 is now possible with both PwnageTool on Mac, and Sn0wbreeze on Windows. RedmondPie -- who else? -- has some handy guides that you can follow for all iOS 4.3.1 devices on Windows, for iPhone 4 on OS X, iPad 1 on OS X, iPhone 3GS on OS X, and iPod touch 4G and 3G on OS X. All iOS 4.3.1 jailbreaks are still tethered, meaning you'll have to jailbreak your device after every...

Enable iOS 4.3 gesture controls on your iPad with free Xcode 3 download

When the iOS 4.3 beta emerged it included 4-and-5-finger gestures for the iPad, such as pinching to return to the home screen, and swiping to reveal the multitasking tray or switch apps. Just one week later, Apple said that iPad gestures wouldn't make the cut, and indeed, iOS 4.3 was summarily released without gestures for the iPad and recently-released iPad 2. Don't despair, however: they can...

iOS 4.3 jailbreak on Windows now possible with Sn0wbreeze 2.3

Redmond Pie, a blog that seems to resolutely have given up on its Microsoft roots, has published a guide on jailbreaking iOS 4.3 on Windows with Sn0wbreeze 2.3. It should work with the iPhone 4 and 3GS, iPad and iPod touch. We don't have any personal experience with Sn0wbreeze here at Download Squad, but the process seems easy enough. Like the PwnageTool Mac jailbreak of iOS 4.3, this is a...

iOS in-app purchases now always require password

Apple's in-app purchasing mechanism has suffered a small, but important change in iOS 4.3. Whereas before you could make as many in-app purchases as you pleased without having to enter your iTunes password for 15 minutes after last entering that password (for example, when purchasing an app or game), from now on entering the password will be required for each and every in-app purchase. This will...

How to solve iOS 4.3 syncing issues

If you're having issues syncing your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch after updating it to iOS 4.3, this tip is for you. It turns out that many people have seen a bug where, after updating any iDevice to the latest version of iOS, syncing with iTunes will stall at step four of four on syncing photos. The stalling is accompanied by a message that the sync could not be completed because "the required...

iOS 4.3, Apple's latest revision to its iDevice-OS, for the GSM iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has just been made available through iTunes to coincide with the launch of the iPad 2 later this week. To update your iDevice, simply connect it to your computer, fire up iTunes, and hit 'Check for update.' There's a lot of new features in iOS 4.3, from Personal Hotspot and AirPlay, to improved...

iOS 4.3 to be released today, and will allow up to five Personal Hotspot connections?

Rather than waiting until March 11 and the release of iPad 2, it looks like iOS 4.3 might be made available at 10am Pacific Time today according to BGR's sources. The Golden Master was released only five days ago, but if no hard blocking bugs were found by Apple's slew of slavering developers, an early release isn't unusual -- and the sooner Apple gets iOS 4.3 into the hands of millions of...

iOS 4.3 jailbreak with PwnageTool

Mere hours after the release of the iOS 4.3 golden master to developers, Redmond Pie has compiled a guide to jailbreak the new version with a combination of PwnageTool and Universal Ramdisk Fixer. It's definitely not a one-click jailbreak, however, and it's still tethered at this stage -- you'll have to re-jailbreak every time you reboot -- but it's a promising indicator that a proper...

Apple makes iOS 4.3 golden master available to developers

The iOS 4.3 golden master (GM), as well as the Xcode and iOS SDK 4.3 GM are now available to download from Apple's Dev Center. The golden master, usually referred to as GM, is the last step before a new iOS version actually gets released to the whole world. Of course, this time we already know when that will happen -- next Friday, on March 11. We found out as much during yesterday's iPad 2...

iTunes 10.2 now available for download

Apple released the latest version of iTunes, iTunes 10.2, today, and it's now available for download. iTunes 10.2 introduces support for the iPad 2 (due out March 11) and is required for syncing devices running the new iOS 4.3 (also due out on the 11th). iTunes 10.2 also features improvements to Home Sharing, including support for streaming media to iOS 4.3 devices using Home Sharing....

iPad 2 brings release of iOS 4.3, with FaceTime and Photo Booth

The iPad 2 launches on March 11th, with a new dual-core A5 processor and HDMI Out capability, but what about the software? Apple announced that the iPad currently has 65,000 apps (compared to 100 for Android Honeycomb tablets), and that the iPad 2 will run the new iOS 4.3. iOS 4.3 features performance improvements in Safari, thanks to the addition of the Nitro JavaScript engine. It also brings...

iOS 4.3 Beta 3 available to developers

Apple has just released iOS 4.3 Beta 3 to developers. This is the third Beta of the upcoming version of iOS in as many weeks, and it's called 8F5166b. It's available, as you can see from the picture above, for iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. A separate package is also available for the 2nd generation Apple TV. According to AppAdvice, the iOS 4.3 betas allow...

First iOS 4.3 app spotted in the App Store, still no official release date

Apple's iOS 4.3 is on its second beta, but there's still no official release date. However, there's some indication that a 4.3 launch isn't far off. Apps with support for iOS 4.3-specific features have been popping up in the App Store today. Engadget has spotted what is probably the first app to list support for AirPlay video, a feature that requires iOS 4.3. The app is StreamToMe, which...

Apple releases iOS 4.3 Beta 2, says iPad gestures won't make final cut

A second beta version of Apple's iOS 4.3 was released to developers today, and there's a spot of bad news. Apple has informed developers that the cool new iPad multitouch gestures in these iOS 4.3 beta releases won't make it to the final version of iOS 4.3 According to Apple, in a message to developers, " This feature will not be enabled in iOS 4.3 for customers, but we are providing this...
