iOS 4.3.1 imminent with iPad 2 Jailbreak block?

Apple is reportedly preparing iOS 4.3.1 for release within the next one to two weeks, less than a month since the company pushed out iOS 4.3. According to BGR's sources, the update will include various bug fixes but also address an iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability and introduce new baseband for the iPhone 3GS and original iPad.

That new baseband could introduce issues for those wanting to unlock or jailbreak their devices, and Apple seems to be wasting no time in addressing the recent iPad 2 hacks. As for the bugfixes, they're said to include:

  • Fixing memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
