For those of you who didn’t already know, iOS 4.3 was released today as expected – an early release before the launch of the iPad 2. If you like your jailbreak, we would recommend that you do not update to iOS 4.3 at this time. Don’t forget to tell any noob friends to not accidentally hit the update button either. Be sure to backup your SHSH blobs manually for even more reassurance using TinyUmbrella.
