Update 1: @i0n1c stated back on February 15th he was anticipating the release of iOS 4.3 so he could release his untether. Signs are looking good folks…http://antid0te.com/
The day after iOS 4.3 was released early by Apple, an untethered jailbreak video has been posted on the web. Stefan Esser from Cologne Germany, who goes by @i0n1c on twitter, has posted a video of his iPad running an untethered iOS 4.3 jailbreak.
New Untethered iOS 4.3 Jailbreak Comes from the Creator of antid0te
Remember last December when we mentioned about a new jailbreak tool called antid0te? That was created by Stefan, who is a web application security expert that appeared in Seoul, South Korea, to talk at the Power of Security conference. His session was centred around address space layout randomization (ASLR), a new type of security for iOS devices.
Stefan states he is the only person to possess this untethered jailbreak, and that he is not affiliated with any team of jailbreakers, such as the Chronic Dev Team. Right now, there’s no word on whether he will be sharing his exploits with any specific team, or releasing it on his own.
Check out the video below:
We’ve asked @i0nic if he will be releasing his jailbreak. We’ll keep you updated.
