Jailbreaking your iPhone is a glorious process that opens your phone to a brave new world of features and apps. But with iOS 5, the process has only worked with your phone tethered (or semi-tethered) to your computer. Until right now.
It looks like iOS5 will finally let Apple put a stop to some of the jailbreakers they've been after. The latest beta prevents users from downgrading to earlier versions of iOS. Meanwhile, untethered jailbreaks are effectively out the window.
Our very extremely short national nightmare is over: thanks to the iPhone Dev Team, you can now jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with iOS 4.3.2 without having to connect to your computer via USB every time you reboot your device.
