Apple Releases iOS 4.3.2 and 4.2.7; Jailbreaks Already Out

Advertisement

Apple has just released a couple of iOS updates, fixing a smattering of bugs and improving device security. Most Apple devices will get iOS 4.3.2, while iOS 4.2.7 is only for the Verizon iPhone 4. Despite just hitting the scene earlier today, there’s already at least one jailbreak available for the new iOS.

The update for Verizon iPhones only contains unspecified security fixes, while the 4.3.2 update has a few enumerated improvements, including remedying some iPad networking issues and preventing FaceTime freeze-ups in certain circumstances.

It looks like Apple’s update has broken existing jailbreaks, but just hours after Apple released its 600-odd-MB update, iPhone hackers have already released a tethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.3.2. We haven’t heard anything about a jailbreak for the Verizon release, but there’s a chance that existing tools may still work. While there’s a way back to a jailbroken iPhone after these new updates, don’t apply them to a carrier-unlocked model unless you want to risk the baseband upgrade re-locking things.
