If you’ve already updated your iOS device to 4.3.1, you might be happy to know that the iPhone Dev Team has just released an update to Redsn0w and Pwnage Tool, bringing an untethered jailbreak to your device. For iPhone users who depend on ultrasn0w to use your phone on the carrier of your choice, this update is not for you. You will have to wait a little longer, until a new update to ultrasn0w is released. iPad 2 users will also not be able to benefit from the latest jailbreak, while other iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 (GSM) users, along with iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G/4G and Apple TV 2G users will be able to go ahead and get their jailbreak on.

The Dev Team have provided both Windows and Mac OS X versions of RedSn0w and a Mac version of Pwnage Tool [Torrent link]. For the time being, Apple TV 2G users can only use Pwnage Tool to jailbreak their devices.

Redsn0w is possibly one of the easiest ways to jailbreak your iOS device. For a detailed, step-by-step guide on jailbreaking, one of the best places to get tutorials no matter what you device is, head over to iClarified and select the appropriate guide for your device.

Have you jailbroken your iOS device? Which method did you use? Let us know in the comments.

    Jailbreak IS legal.

    Jailbreak means to unlock some features of your iDevice that have been locked by Apple, e.g: access your iDevice file-system, install a terminal, SSH access...

    It also allows you to install unofficial packages and apps.
    Unofficial is not illegal, it means that you don't get those packages via Apple App Store but by other means, like Cydia (an alternative App Store).

    It's also true that is easier to install cracked apps in a jailbroken iDevice, (this is illegal), but having your iDevice jailbroken doesn't necessarily mean that you are installing cracked apps.

    (There are many not-free unofficial packages in cydia, for example.)

    Hope this help.

      In the past Apple considered it illegal to jailbreak your phone but not anymore - and even then many people questioned why it should be illegal to jailbreak your own personal device. In any case - jailbreaking basically allows you to use your iOS device in ways that Apple wouldn't want you to. For example, with an iPhone, if you jailbreak it, you can then unlock it and use it on any carrier of your choice. It also allows you, like has been said, to install apps that aren't Apple approved, to theme your device, and much more.
