PwnageTool: Tethered iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak, What You Need
Now there are a number of reasons why owners of iOS devices might consider getting the latest jailbreak for their device.
The new version of Cydia, which is an unsanctioned app store could be one of these reasons. If you have recently upgraded your device to iOS 4.3.1 and are interested in a large amount of free and paid apps that have been banned by Apple, for instance some skins and interface enhancements then this jailbreak could be for you.
As reported by the guys at 9to5mac, this jailbreak uses the new PwnageTool 2.0.1 that was released by the iPhone-Dev team. However, please note that this latest jailbreak is tethered at the moment, which means that each time your device is restarted it has to be tethered to a computer, whereby an untethered jailbreak does not require you to do this process.
In order for you get the jailbreak on to your device, you will need a Mac, the latest iOS 4.3.1 firmware, iTunes 10.2.1, PwnageTool 4.2, PwnageTool bundle for iOS 4.3.1, tetheredboot utility and Universal Ramdisk Fixer. If you have all these requirements, then why not visit Redmond Pie for the step by step instructions.
