Bug fixes

You can get iOS 4.3 update directly via iTunes. iTunes has also been updated to 10.2.1 to support iOS 4.3.

Also, here are direct download links for IPSW files, directly from Apple:

Jailbreakers and Unlockers must stay away from this update. No untethered jailbreak is present for iOS 4.3. Also, bad news for unlockers. @MuscleNerd has stated that he currently doesn’t have any working exploits for the iPhone 4 02.10.04 and 03.10.01 basebands.

@MuscleNerd's Tweet

Sorry, there’s no news on the i4 unlock for those who lost 01.59 (or never had it). It’s taking longer than we wanted 🙁

So, if you rely on unlock, don’t upgrade to iOS 4.3. Stay where you are.

Stay tuned for more news via Email or Twitter.
