Apple outlaws can rejoice today over the news of an update to the popular jailbreak app, redsn0w, with untethered support for iOS 4.3.2. The jailbreak works on any Apple device that uses the current firmware version, with the exception — like other recently released jailbreaks — of the iPad 2. Everyone else — iPhone 3GS and 4, iPod Touch 3G and 4G, and the original iPad — is safe.

Relatively so, anyway. Some people are reporting on Dev-Team‘s website that they’re having issues with the new jailbreak. The practice is safe enough; if anything goes wrong, your device can generally be restored using iTunes, provided you haven’t monkeyed around too much with developer tools. These are available only with a jailbreak and they’re always clearly marked, so the margin for making accidental changes is pretty slim. That said, anyone who intends to jailbreak their Apple device really ought to have at least an intermediate understanding of such things.

The newly updated jailbreak actually makes use of the same hole that the previous one did. Dev-Team nods to Stefan Esser’s (@i0n1c on Twitter) work on the previous release in programming the workaround and later porting it over to this latest release. Unlockers — those who have their device set to work with a wireless carrier other than the one it was intended for — are advised to stay away from the jailbreak, as is always the case.

Max OS X and Windows versions of the 4.3.2 jailbreak are available on Dev-Team’s website. Given that some users are experiencing issues, you might want to hold off until Dev-Team releases another update.
