If you're waiting for a jailbreak before updating to iOS 4.3.3, you might be happy to know that redsn0w 0.9.6b15 will do the trick. This is the same untethered jailbreak that we've seen since iOS 4.3.1, which we don't mind at all. Just download the latest version of redsn0w, and go for it. This'll work with iPhone, iPod touch, and first-gen iPad. iPad 2 is still being fairly unreasonable about allowing itself to be jailbroken for the time being.

If you're waiting for a jailbreak before updating to iOS 4.2.1, you might be happy to know that redsn0w 0.9.6b4 will do the trick. It uses the Limera1n exploit that worked with iOS 4.1, however this is currently a "tethered" jailbreak. In other words, once you jailbreak using the current method, if you ever need to reboot your iPad, fourth-gen and third-gen iPod touch, iPhone 3GS (later models) or iPhone 4, you must have the device connected to your computer and use redsn0w to do the reboot, otherwise the phone simply won't boot up. Definitely not something we'd feel comfortable doing with our main device, but hey, we know there are many out there who are more daring than we are. If that's you, go for it and let us know how it went!

We knew that once the iPhone 4 jailbreak dropped, it would be just a matter of time before the unlock method would be made available. Well, two days later, it’s here. Ultrasn0w, the software unlock we’ve come to know and love over the years, has been updated to version 1.0-1. With that update comes support for the iPhone 4 baseband 01.59 and iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.12.01, and 05.13.04. If those numbers confuse you, no worries, this basically just means that any iPhone 3G/3GS/4 device that you have in your hand as of today is unlockable. Just download ultrasn0w through Cydia, and you’re all set!
