iOS 4.3.3 Redsn0w Jailbreak Problem: Battery Life An Issue

If you are thinking about all of the cool extras you get from jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad then there’s more to it that you may want to consider. As always as soon as the latest firmware update comes through for the Apple devices the hackers get into it and pull out an updated jailbreak.

The latest iOS update is 4.3.3 and as OSM’s Debbie Turner reported it has only taken them a few days for the latest exploit to be available. It’s called Redsn0w 0.9.6 and as we mentioned before it’s available to download now. There’s one thing we have to tell you about, there’s problem with the iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak where it has had an effect on the battery life.

It would appear that the jailbreak is forcing your iDevice (not iPad 2) to use up more juice than usual. We learned of this through an entry over on iClarified where they say that the battery seems to be being “drained”.

The original source for the information as is quite often the case these days was Twitter where i0n1c (Stefan Esser) who is one of the hackers. He tweeted “BTW: by using the latest RedSwow you also might decrease the battery drain.” See it below.

Will you proceed with the latest jailbreak? Have you done it already and noticed your battery life being drained faster? Tell us in the comments section below.
