Ultrasn0w doesn't work on iOS 4.3.1 yet (even with iOS 4.3.1 + old baseband). The fix will be available soon. Here's a warning from DevTeam for unlockers:
Yesterday, on April 3 the Apple’s iPad celebrated its first anniversary. 365 days ago the original iPad went on sale in the United States. The Apple’s “magical device” that was smaller than a laptop but bigger than a smartphone, was exactly what many people had been looking for. Moreover, the iPad created a new market of devices without physical keyboard with large Multitouch screen. iPad for Apple was a terrific commercial success. The company sold more than 15 million devices, and over 75, 000 native applications via the App Store. The iPad became an iconic device, and now there are long lines around the globe to get the chance of buying an iPad 2.
As you may already know, this Thursday Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci resigned his office after the company's decision to reorganize itself in order to increase its share on the tablet market. The permanent successor should be found by the end of April.

Yesterday Apple posted on its website an announcement saying that it will reveal its earning for the second fiscal quarter of 2011 and host a conference on April 20th. The company is expected to provide sales numbers for the iPad 2 and the Verizon iPhone, which was initially rumored to have sales “below Apple’s expectations”. During the conference the company plans to discuss financial results of its second fiscal quarter. The conference call starts at 5:00 PM Eastern / 2:00 PM Pacific after release of financial results which typically comes around 4:30 PM Eastern.
iFixit announced that they completed the teardowns of the GSM and CDMA models of iPad 2. Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2 was torn down on launch day. The GSM model has the micro-SIM card slot along the upper left edge to provide the device with subscriber information. On the CDMA version such information stores directly on the WWAN board inside. The CDMA iPad offer slightly different antenna configurations, it has an additional antenna and an integrated GPS receiver. What’s really curious is that the 3G version of iPad 2 has the older Infineon 337Se833 baseband chip rather than a dual-mode Gobi chip found inside the CDMA iPad 2. Maybe it was a supply issue or an engineering decision designed to cut costs a bit.
Hacker I0nic has given his untether exploit for the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak to the iPhone Dev-Team. They will perform testing and integrate it into their jailbreak utilities - redsn0w and pwnagetool. This untethered jailbreak will probably work for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad.
The iphone-dev-team is already beta-testing the untether. So it is up to them to give you your tool of choice.
Please don't bother the dev-team now. The deal is: if the beta test is successfull, they are free to do whatever they want with it.
I0nic recently demonstrated his jailbreak on iPod Touch 4G. I hope to get iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak soon.
Hackers have released Sn0wBreeze 2.4 beta 1 utility, which is able to jailbreak the latest iOS 4.3.1. This jailbreak is tethered for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS new bootrom, iPad, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G. Tethered means that every reboot you will have to connect device to a computer and boot it using special utility (iBooty). Sn0wBreeze 2.4 beta 1 provides untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS old bootrom.
Sn0wbreeze also preserves your baseband, which is very useful for unlockers. Using Sn0wbreeze you can update firmware iOS 4.3.1, while preserve old unlockable baseband. It also works with iPhone 3GS with 06.15 baseband.
It is still beta, so there might be bugs so use at your own risk.
You can download Sn0wBreeze 2.4 beta 1 for Windows here.
As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.
I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.
The funny thing is that my "new" kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed.
It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess
Apple has announced that the WWDC 2011 will be held on June 6-10 at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco. This year conference will be special because Apple is planning to introduce the next iOS version and preview Mac OS X Lion.
"At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”
The conference itself will be home to over 100 technical sessions and 1000 Apple engineers. Here are the specifics from Apple:
TechCruch’s sources report that the release of iOS 5 was pushed back to fall. But the preview of software is expected to be introduced at the WWDC in June. The rumor is interesting because it breaks Apple’s usual release cycle. In last years Apple previewed a new version of iOS in March or April and released it by the WWDC. But not this time. The iOS 5 launch is also likely to coincide with the release of the iPad 3.
The forthcoming major revamp of iOS may bring the cloud-based operating system with rumored music “locker” service. There is also a fall launch aim for this, during Apple’s annual music-themed event. One of the new cloud service elements is likely a location service that focuses on finding friends and family members. iOS 5 is also rumored to introduce a new UI, a new notification system, direct OS X integration.
Recently Apple released the iOS 4.3.1. The iOS 4.3.1 is available for the GSM iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad, and the third- and fourth-generation iPod touch. The update doesn’t available for the CDMA iPhone for Verizon. The build has number 8G4 and contains the following improvements and bugs fixes:
- Fixes an occasional graphics glitch on iPod touch (4th generation);
- Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks;
- Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs;
- Resolves an issue authenticating with some enterprise web services.
You can download iOS 4.3.1 here.
It turns out that the iPad 2 glass is stronger that iPad 1 generation. It is also a bit more flexible so it has more bending tolerances. This information is great, since the iPad 2 glass was about 27% thinner than iPad 1. Here is a proof video from iFixyouri:

The Apple’s new MobileMe, set for April, will have a new music component, dubbed “locker”. There are not enough details, but the new service is called as your digital life stored in the cloud. The locker service will reportedly costs around $20 per a year.
Apple made a licensing deal with Warner Music Group and uses it to secure agreements with other labels. Moreover, almost everybody knows that Apple is working on a cloud-based iTunes music streaming service to provide permanent backup of downloaded songs.
The service also would allow downloads to iPad, iPod and iPhone devices linked to the same iTunes account. The move would be a step closer to universal access to content centrally stored on the Internet.
That information suggests that Apple will introduce a rumored music streaming service. We’ll see. April is soon!
Tomorrow is a great day for Apple fans - the start of worldwide Apple iPad 2. Here's a very nice comparison table with international prices for iPad 2. Best deals are in the USA and Australia. The highest prices are in Norway and Sweden. Take a look:
