by Jawwad in Guides, iPad, Mobile | 2 comments

Earlier we have reported the release of the iOS 4.3.2 – and here comes a great news for iPad owners, iOS 4.3.2 has been jailbroken already in a short time! However, every time you will start your iPad you will need to reboot it into jailbreak mode using tethered boot utility (re-jailbreak it every time you restart your phone) because custom iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak is available in tethered mode only for now. You can jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 yourself using Pwnage Tool (version 4.3), Tethered Boot Utility and Universal Ramdisk Fixer.

Note:Note that support for the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch should follow soon so stay tuned…

Just use the following instructions:

Programs required:

Note that this method to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 for iPad is exactly similar to the one that we posted earlier for the iPhone 4 except some steps. So here we are only listing the steps that are different from that guide.

Step 1: Download PwnageTool bundle for iOS 4.3.2 for iPad and extract the content into a folder.

Step 2: Because this guide is geared towards iPad we will be using iPad bundle file named “iPad1,1_4.3.2_8H7.bundle”. Copy this file to your desktop.

Step 5: Now you need to browse to Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/ and paste the iPad1,1_4.3.2_8H7.bundlefile at this location which we copied on the desktop in step 2.
