How to Update to iOS 4.3 on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Without Developer Account

By  at Tuesday, January 18, 2011  

Do you want to update your device to iOS 4.3? iOS 4.3 beta 1 has been released couple of days ago with new features for both iPad and iPhone and we showed a great walkthrough inside it. Today, I've received a tip from one of our readers about a successful method to update your device to iOS 4.3 without a developer account.

Quick Guide on how to "hacktivate" iOS 4.3 without a developer account.

1st Method
1) Install iOS 4.3
2) "Jailbreak" with redsn0w 0.9.6rc8, you should see a white block in de upper left corner from your iPhone, reboot it
3) get iFunBox
4) navigate to "Raw File System" -> /System/Library/CoreServices
5) open SystemVersion.plist and remove the following lines:
ReleaseType
Beta
6) Reboot the iPhone
7) Activate your iPhone with iTunes

2nd Method (thx to joshingknight)
1) Restore to 4.2.1
2) Shift-Update and point the 4.3 IPSW. here’s important that you Shift-Update, not Shift-Restore!
If you want File System Access just jailbreak it like you were on 4.2.1 and reboot your iDevice when it’s stuck on a black screen, then you have FS Access with tools like iFunBox, but Cydia won’t work
Congrats your iPhone is activated now =)
