If you need unlock Redsn0w will provide you with choice of updating your baseband to 06.15.
The 4.3.3 untether works on all Apple devices that support 4.3.2 except for the iPad2:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4 (GSM)
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
- iPad 1
- AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)
Redsnow is easy to use, it is available for Windows and Mac OS. As usual for unlockers - do not update to 4.3.3, use PwnageTool (MAC) and Sn0wBreeze (Windows) to preserve the baseband.

Ultrasn0w was also updated to support old baseband on new iOS 4.3.3. Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 (for unlockers with old baseband) is available in Cydia.

The iPhone Dev team has just released PwnageTool 4.3.2 which adds support for iOS 4.3.2. The jailbreak uses i0n1c's untether, which Apple did not fix in 4.3.2. Ultrasn0w has also been updated to 1.2.2 adding support for the new firmware.
The iPhone Dev-Team released an update to UltraSn0w that makes it compatible with iOS 4.3.1 for basebands previously unlocked. You can use ultrasn0w if you need carrier unlock and you have compatible baseband, preserved with pwnagetool, sn0wbreeze or tinyumbrella.
Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 supports only the following basebands:
- iPhone 4: 01.59.00
- iPhone 3G/3GS: 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, 06.15.00.
You can install ultrasn0w via Cydia.

It seems that jailbreaking of iOS devices become a really profitable business, at least for Kevin Lee, a George Mason University senior, who managed to earn $50,000 a year by jailbreaking and unlocking iPhones. At first, it was a hobby for him that eventually grew into a real business with 30-40 clients per week asking for jailbreak, Cydia installations, graphical customizations and “unlocks” to use the iPhone on wireless carriers otherwise unsupported by Apple. To achieve success, Kevin posted posting a “Get Your iPhone Jailbroken Today” ad on the popular online community. That helped him to get hundreds of requests. But his business goes against Apple’s rules and as far as we know, at that moment his ad was already removed from the site.

Scion, a brand of vehicles manufactured by Toyota, recently developed a custom iPhone theme specifically for jailbroken devices, submitting it to us for hosting in Cydia.
As far as we know, Apple is strongly against jailbroken devices but this advertising campaign may somehow help to legitimize the jailbreak community and also place it in direct competition with Apple's own iAds network. Apple apparently heard about the campaign and has asked Toyota to pull it.
