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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
