    No, they're not signing 4.3.1 just 4.3.2
    You can stay and jb now on 4.2.1 or update to 4.3.2 and wait for a new untethered jb.
    You cannot go to 4.3.1

    Unless there is something in 4.3 that you just absolutely can not live without, stick with 4.2.1. 4.3 will bring you horrible lag, stuttery animations, and other problems. I tried it for about 2 days and then said F this and went back to 4.0. Its amazing how much better 4.0 is.

    :apple:has stopped signing iOS 4.3.1 altogether. Sorry but the jailbreak and the update are both impossible.
    Even if you have the IPSW modded, iTunes will always require an SHSH. Since you couldn't save an iOS 4.3.1 SHSH blob, you cannot update, and therefore you cannot jailbreak iOS 4.3.1.
    The only way you can update AND jailbreak is waiting for i0n1c to release his iOS 4.3.2 exploit.

    You are horribly funny, sir. iOS 4.3.1 has sped up my iPhone so much. I think iOS 4.2.1 jailbreaks lagged me up really bad. Limera1n and Greenpois0n were so laggy it was ridiculous. The mighty iPhone 4 lags!

    Update whatever is on Cydia.
    If you jailbroke with Redsn0w, then kill all background apps.
    If you jailbroke with Limera1n, that's why. Also kill all background apps.
    If you jailbroke with Greenpois0n, that's why.
    You are on iOS 4.2.1, that's why. iOS 4.3.1 is VERY stable.

    Posters in this thread are incorrect. Apple is still signing 4.3.1.

    1. Download the newest version of TinyUmbrella
    2. Plug in your phone
    3. Click your phone's icon in the list on the left side
    4. Click Advanced on on the phone's settings
    5. Uncheck "Request SHSH from Cydia"
    6. Restart TinyUmbrella
    7. Click "Get SHSH"
    Act quickly because they are likely to stop signing at any time.

    Maybe for you, but I was JB on 4.0 with Limera1n and it worked flawless.

    I'm now with redsn0w on 4.3.1 and it sucks terribly.

    I agree. I was at 4.1 before upgrading to 4.3.1 and the difference is noticeable. Even though I like the hotspot feature and some apps wouldn't work with 4.1 I'm contemplating a downgrade.

    My battery is getting used up faster when talking on the phone. From full charge, with my typical usage, I would have a battery in the low 90% range at the end of the day. Now it's closer to low-mid 80's with the same usage. Yes, I'm a light user. :)

    Animations are sometimes jittery where on 4.1 that would be rare for me to see. Also, since upgrading I've been down 50-60 MB of RAM with everything closed using Remove Background. I'm using the same tweaks and theme as before. It's nice to have more current firmware but the positives don't seem to be outweighing the negatives for me. If I knew it would be like this I wouldn't have upgraded from 4.1 but now I don't feel like setting my phone as new.

    I meant iOS 4.2.1.
    Of course the original is stable. They had a whole year to prepare it. But it lacks so many features.
    May I mention obsolete hardware makes everything slow?

    This worked for me earlier today as well. I didn't know if Cydia had saved or not yet since my device was still pending, and didn't want to wait another day. Glad I did, managed to get the blobs saved. Definitely worth a shot as I'm sure they'll stop signing any second now

    Apple, as of the time of this post, is still signing 4.3.1.

    • Ensure that you have not modified your hosts file to redirect requests to Apple's servers to your own computer.
    • Ensure you have restarted TinyUmbrella after changing any settings.

    Get the SHSHes while they're hot!

    According to Sema Apple is still releasing 4.3.1 so everyone better hurry.

    "OK so it looks like Cydia is giving up the ghost and having some major issues. I've re-uploaded 4.30.05 for those of you that want to save 4.3.1 via APPLE. Hurry up and do so before 4.3.1 is no longer signed."


    To save your SHSH via APPLE instead of CYDIA (the default) go into Advanced options and UNCHECK the box that clearly says: "Request SHSH From Cydia" then click 'Apply Changes' then select your device then click 'Save SHSH'

    Note that you must use the older TU to do this (4.30.05).

    Good point.
    I just used the latest 4.32.01 to grab the 4.3.2 blobs since I already had 4.3.1

    I just saved 4.3.1 blobs for my family's iPhones. I didn't even have the phones on me but had synced them previously with TinyUmbrella on my computer so I just loaded up TU and was able to save the blobs for both 4.3.1 and 4.3.2.

    Thanks for the tip!

    When did 4.32.01 come out? I was at the TU site a couple of days ago and didn't see anything. :confused:
