Apple has just released iOS 4.3.2 – an update for all devices that support the 4.3 software – except the Verizon iPhone 4 (CDMA) – which fixes a FaceTime bug and an issue that prevents some international users from connecting to 3G networks on the iPad.

The release notes read:

– Fixes an issue that occasionally caused blank or frozen video during a FaceTime call

– Fixes an issue that prevented some international users from connecting to 3G networks on iPad Wi-Fi + 3G

– Contains the latest security updates

As usual with an iOS update, jailbreakers should avoid updating their devices, especially if they rely on an unlock. Dev-Team member MuscleNerd has warned hackers with messages on Twitter, confirming that Apple is working hard to prevent untethered jailbreaks:

ultrasn0w unlockers stay away from today’s iOS 4.3.2!

Apple sure is aggresively patching these untethered jailbreaks lately (but that’s better than lawsuits)

The iOS 4.3.2 update is now available to download via iTunes. Verizon users get the same bug fixes, but they come in the form of iOS 4.2.7 – also immediately available.

    I haven’t upgraded past 4.2.1 yet until I hear that battery-drain issues that came with 4.3 have been resolved. I’ll be curious to see what people’s testing shows!

    I upgraded to 4.3.1 last night and the battery issues don’t seem to bad. I have an iPhone 4 on 4.3.1 with 1.59.00 baseband. Been using it a lot today to reinstall my jb apps and seems just about the same as 4.2.1

    Updated to 4.3.2 and so far, on my iPhone 4, it’s much snappier.

    Tried to update but I get an error. I have an ipod touch. Turned off the firewall and tried again, same thing. I give up.

    This one will be tough to jailbreak!

  • Frank

    I am new to jailbreaking. Recently, I bought an ATV2 and it is currently running 4.3.1. My experiments to date made me having to restore the unit a few times to the original software, using iTunes.

    I was wondering: if I have to do this restore again, will it pick up 4.3.2 or does it stay on 4.3.1?
