Renaud has posted a video and some information on his blogregarding a possible solution for iPhone 3GS 3.1.2 untethered jailbreak. As you know Apple introduced iBoot 359.3.2 with iPhone 3GS manufactured after week 42 to fix a security vulnerability that prevents the 24kpwn exploit. Currently, all iPhone owners 3GS with new iBoot are able to make only the Tethered Jailbreak. If you are confused with Tethered and Untethered jailbreak check the following.
- Tethered Jailbreak : If you shut down a jailbroken iPhone 3GS, or if it runs out of power, you can only turn it back on by plugging it into a computer.
- Untethered Jailbreak : If you shut down a jailbroken iPhone 3GS, or if it runs out of power you can switch it on back with power button.
iDongle is a possible solution for untethered jailbreak, operation is very simple you need to carry a little thumb sized dongle with you so in case you need to reboot your iDevice —>
