    According to @Comex the new iOS 4.3.2 firmware released today may be still be vulnerable to I0n1c's untethered jailbreak exploit.

    By the way, iOS 4.3.2 is (as far as I can see) still vulnerable to @i0n1c's untether vulnerability.

    If true, this is excellent news! We'll let you know as soon as we get a definitive update from I0n1c.

    Update:
    I0n1c: "Well updating to iOS 4.3.2 over a hotel network takes years. Before I have done that can neither ack nor deny that the untether still works."

    This will be great if the update still didnt fully patch the untethered jailbreak.
    Great job Apple, you tried to be quick this time too:D

    I would believe this seeing as 4.3.2 was probably ready to be distributed around the exact same time the untethered 4.3.1 JB was released to the public.

    Hopefully we'll see an untethered 4.3.2 JB by NEXT Sunday (that would be my earliest guess at least)

    Gotta love those accidental upgrades...lol! To take a big step in preventing such a thing (how it happens no one seems to know) open iTunes, select preferences and under the General tab make sure "Check for new software updates automatically" is unchecked.

    If anyone "accidentally" upgrades after that you deserve what you get. :p :)

    From what I understand 4.3.2 was built the very day the untether was released to the public. So it would make sense it would still be vulnerable...

    I've no idea how accidental updates can happen, you've got to wait for download then watch your phone reboot :S

    Apple has been nice. I just verified that the untether vulnerability is not fixed in iOS 4.3.2 - my Ipad 1 is running untethered jailbroken

    No one can do it yet. Once the binaries are produced and shared with Dev Team, we all can :)

    Yeah, Contrary to popular believe, Apple doesn't expend much effort on fighting Jailbreakers, all they do is patch their own software from bugs (like any software company), the Exploit was not made public until they were already pretty late on the release cycle that it was rush due to the actual issue affecting Verizon units.

    Nice:)
    Hope in the future they focus less on patching jailbreaks and more on improving the iOS.

    Yeah..LOL

    It is so subjective, to them... they "improve" iOS on every upgrade (and to be fair, it is a lot of work on development and testing that goes into those cycles, considering that every screw up, can possible screw a few millions people).

    Cool! Sounds like it will take a week or two to update the binaries but other than that the 4.3.2 untether is in good shape.

    Excellent news. I read in one of his later tweets that it is unlikely he will get it out this weekend as he has some flying this weekend. Sounds like next week sometime.

    I'll keep looking for this one, skipped 4.3.1 with all the bug reports.

    This actually seems to scream "fail" of jailbreakers who assumed Apple's update was solely to sew a Jailbreak hole. (Mind you, I also thought 4.3.2 was only to fix the hole myself).

    Sort of like accidentally pregnant, everyone just can't resist an update/upgrade button.
