“The iOS Dev-Team on Monday released its latest hack to jailbreak iOS devices, with ‘PwnageTool 4.3’ and ‘redsn0w 0.9.6rc9’ both available for download,” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider. “The ‘untethered’ jailbreak, which does not require a device to be connected to a computer via USB every time it restarts, works on the iPhone 3GS, GSM iPhone 4, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, the first-generation iPad, and the second-generation Apple TV.”
