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

Gevey has released a SIM Interposer which can unlock the iPhone up to iOS 4.3 by force activating the baseband using the emergency dialer.
SIM Interposer works by adding a EEPROM chip to your SIM card just like a TurboSIM. The unlock uses the ability to call 112, a number that can be called from any GSM phone.
To unlock you need to insert chip with your sim card, dial 112, once it connects hang up, toggle Airport mode on and off - that's it, you unlocked your iPhone 4. We do not know yet if this is completely legal solution, so you might want to wait for DevTeam software unlock.
And here are two videos, proving it is real:

Apple has finally brought wireless tethering functionality with iOS 4.3. It is called Personal Hotspot and allows users to share iPhone’s cellular data connection with other devices over WiFi connection.
For instance, you can connect your iPad WiFi only model to the internet via iPhone. There's one less reason to pay additional $130 for a 3G iPad. There is another difference between iPad WiFi and iPad 3G - GPS. Well, it looks loke WiFi-only iPad inherits GPS positioning capabilities when you tether the tablet to an iPhone via the Personal Hotspot feature.
Kyle Carmitchel from TabletMonsters discovered this by accident and posted a video to prove it.
Apple’s new iOS 4.3 includes change that requires reentry of your iTunes Store password to make in-app purchases, even if the user had just entered the password to download the application. That change was made to address concerns over incidents when children managed to pay lots of money for games and prevent children without knowledge of the device's iTunes Store password from accessing in app purchase content.
Parents had complained to the The Post that in the 15-minute period after an app was downloaded, children were buying sometimes hundreds of dollars of purchases on games such as Smurfs’ Village and Tap Zoo — popular iTunes games that are also among the highest-grossing programs for in-app purchases.
I0n1c posted the video below on YouTube. Current untethered jailbreak is alpha, it is not finished. So no due dates yet. We do not know when untether will be available for public. We'll keep you updated.

A couple of days ago Safari got pwned again at the hacking challenge pwn2own. It took the French team consists of specialists of security firm Vupen just a few seconds to exploit an unpatched Safari vulnerability. “We pwned Apple Safari on Mac OS X (x64) at pwn2own in 5 seconds,” they tweeted. Just a few minutes before the contest, Apple released Safari 5.0.4 alongside iOS 4.3. Vupen said that the update 62 vulnerabilities, breaking “some exploits but not all.” The winners were awarded $15,000 and a MacBook Air. In addition to Safari, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 was also hacked pretty quickly.
