Apparently Apple is planning on releasing another iOS update in a few weeks that is supposed to fix tracking issues in iOS… most likely they will also be patching up the untethered jailbreak from iOS 4.3.2/4.3.1 so jailbreakers and unlockers might want to be cautious and not “accidently” update when the time comes, this would also be a good to save your SHSH blobs for 4.3.2 if Apple is planning on sending an update and you are planning to apply the update (SHSH blobs allow you to downgrade to the firmware you have them for…).
From Apple’s Q&A on Location Data
Sometime in the next few weeks Apple will release a free iOS software update that:
- reduces the size of the crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower database cached on the iPhone,
- ceases backing up this cache, and
- deletes this cache entirely when Location Services is turned off.
In the next major iOS software release the cache will also be encrypted on the iPhone.
So, what do you think about this? It seems that Apple has been adding a lot of revisions to the 4.3 software update, and surely there are more to come!
Recently the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 was released, but Mac users who didn’t want to update their baseband was having to resort to finding a way to run Windows to use Sn0wbreeze to save their basebands. Well that is no longer the case because the Dev-Team have released the new version of PwnageTool (it’s version 4.3.2 and it jailbreaks 4.3.2, I wonder if that is a coincidence…). The jailbreak instructions are the same for creating your custom firmware… but I don’t own a Mac so I won’t be able to post a tutorial 😦
You can download the new PwnageTool through the official Torrent here (yes you will need a Torrent client)
