Apple just seeded iOS 4.3 beta (build 8F5148b) and iOS SDK 4.3 beta (build 10M2508) to developers. Except iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G, iOS 4.3 beta is available for all iOS devices including iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G, iPad & Apple TV 2G. Main feature of iOS 4.3 beta include Personal Hotspot, AirPlay for 3rd party apps and new multi-touch gestures for iPad.
Just few days after Apple released the iOS 4.3 beta to developers, there’s an (unofficial) version of PwnageTool that can jailbreak the new iOS 4.3 . 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.
Apple has just seeded iOS 4.3 to developers for both mobile devices and the Apple TV. No word on what iOS 4.3 brings to Apple’s mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV) but the Apple TV update will allow AirPlay video from 3rd party apps. Stay tuned for more coverage.
