what’s the improvement from 4.3.2?

thanks alot

The biggest difference as far as I can work out is that the database which manages your location and so on and so forth, will be reduced in size… and they have patched the exploit used in 4.3.2 😉

MoonArrow May 25, 2011, 4:31 am

Sorry but I have the same problem than Berni (3GS old bootrom, jalbreak with rc16) and the iPhone is jailbreaked (cydia white icon present) but when I run it : crash.

I tried the proposed solution: run again the rc16 with the ‘Just boot tethered’ option and still the pb. I tried to start again from begining (update to 4.3.3, jailbreak again…) and still the same situation.

Has anyone a clue for me?

Thanks in advance
