Another Update is Coming
4.3.1 is on it's way. This will be to fix a security issue with Safari. I have no idea when it's going to be available but that doesn't exactly give me the fuzzy warms.
AppleInsider | Apple expected to release iOS 4.3.1 'soon' to patch Safari vulnerability
Im glad I held off on updating LOL
Looks like this will further delay any 4.3 untethered jailbreak.
Ya for probably awhile, but I can deal with 4.2.1 for awhile =)
you gotta admire apple for patching their mobile devices quickly. if this were android there'd be a ton of mfgs passing the upgrade by bc of costs.
And there is also a new version of iTunes to 10.2.1 and Safari v5 (Windows version)
pawn2own did not hack 4.3. It wasn't available in time for the contest. They hacked 4.2.1.
Apple Insider completely mis-represented or misunderstood their source article. While 4.3, has the same vulnerability as 4.2.1, is actually more secure. The ASLR layer they mention actually impedes the use of the vulnerability.
There are reasons for keeping 4.2.1, but this vulnerability isn't one of them.
The article Apple Insider refers to:
Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 Untethered To Be Release Once Apple Releases iOS 4.3.1 To Public | Redmond Pie
I kind of wonder if the problem didn't already exist prior to upgrade to 4.3. Well, I think that makes me feel a little bit more comfortable about running Safari. I still don't like the fact that it is forced upon us as the default browser though.

I noticed that with this latest update the clock on my iPad still runs fast. How hard can it be to fix that?
Well, glad I haven't gotten around to updating yet. Also noticed on TUAW that some were having problems with Apple TV and new upgrade--which I also havrn't gotten around to doing yet.
This is all a repeat of what was said in Jailbreaking 4.3 thread..where I broke the news a day or 2 ago :-)P
