The much awaited untethered jailbreaking tool for iOS 4.3.1 has been released by the iPhone Dev team. The team released Redsn0w 0.9.6RC9 for Windows and it is compatible with iOS 4.3.1 on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM, iPod Touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPad, and Apple TV 2, but the iPad 2 is currently not supported.
Those who are on Mac, can also download PwnageTool 4.3 for jailbreaking their iDevice on iOS 4.3.1. Unlike PwnageTool, you cannot create custom firmware using RedSn0w 0.9.6RC9. Also, Ultrasn0w is currently broken on iOS 4.3.1, so stay away if you depend on Ultrasn0w for unlocking your iPhone.
