iOS 4.3.5 is out; Redsn0w jailbreak works

Apple releases a security update to iOS, so naturally the iPhone Dev-Team manages to jailbreak it on the same day.

Earlier today (Monday), Apple released iOS 4.3.5, a security update that patches a flaw in its handling of security certificates. If you're looking to jailbreak 4.3.5, though, here's some good news: "MuscleNerd" of the iPhone Dev Team decided he would check to see if Redsn0w would successfully jailbreak the minor update. You can, however there are still a few pitfalls.

First, the jailbreak only works with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch, and original iPad. (Sorry iPad 2 owners; you're out of luck. Again.) Also, this jailbreak is only limited to a tethered boot with iOS 4.3.5, so whenever you reboot your iDevice, you will need to connect it up to your computer. Lastly, you can't use Redsn0w if you use a carrier unlock.

iOS 4.3.5 is Apple's second security update to iOS in the last week and a half or so--Apple released iOS 4.3.4 on July 15, which fixed the flaw that Jailbreak.me 3.0 took advantage of.

If you're on iOS 4.3.5 and are willing to give this a try, you can download the necessary files for Redsn0w and then following the steps on Redmond Pie's website

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
