Earlier we have reported the release of the iOS 4.3.2. We already have Redsn0w 0.9.6RC9 available that can jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 untethered on all iDevices except iPad 2. Untethered jailbreaking is achieved by using the exploit provided by the Stefan Esser that we reported some time ago. Good news is that you can use this version of Redsn0w to also jailbreak the iOS 4.3.2! Unfortunately, this jailbreak will be tethered in contrast to the un-tethered jailbreak that it supports for the iOS 4.3.1.
Note: Please stay away from this method if your phone is dependent on a carrier unlock! Instead use the iOS 4.3.2 jailbreaking instructions that we posted earlier today (iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 4G) to preserve your baseband. Actually, this is method is useful only if you are NOT dependent on a carrier unlock for both Mac and Windows users.
Now follow these instructions:
- Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 (Windows/Mac)
- Access to stock iOS 4.3.1 firmware
- Access to stock iOS 4.3.2 firmware
- iTunes 10.2.1
Step 1: First download the iOS 4.3.2 and iOS 4.3.1 FW ( iOS 4.3.2 is required by Redsn0w 0.9.6 for 4.3.2 jailbreak) for your specific iDevice.
Step 2: Update/Restore to iOS 4.3.2 FW using the IPSW file you just downloaded in iTunes.
Step 3: Download the Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 and save it to the desktop. Extract the Redsn0w application there in a folder on the desktop.
Step 4: Execute RedSn0w application from there that was extracted earlier.
Step 5: Once RedSn0w appears click the Browse button. Then browse the iOS 4.3.1 stock FW (NOT iOS 4.3.2!) that is downloaded in Step 1 and open it (as shown in the illustration below).
Notice this popup that appears for the users that are using the iPhone 3GS. As instructed in the picture below you can find out the model of the iPhone 3GS easily.
Step 6: Once the firmware has been verified click the Next button to continue.
Step 7: RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data.
Step 8: From this window you can select the jailbreak options you would like.
- Make sure Cydia is selected.
- Notice that RedSn0w can Enable multitasking (iPhone 3G only, no display of this option on 3GS needed!). If you do not need multitasking we would recommend deselecting it as it makes your iPhone 3G run very slow.
Step 9: Now plug your iPhone into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button.
Step 10: RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds. Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.
Step 11: RedSn0w will then do it’s processing and you will be notified when RedSn0w it is done. Click the Finish button. When your iDevice finishes after rebooting it will be jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard!
Enjoy! now you have a tethered jailbroken iDevice on iOS 4.3.2!,
Note that if you want to boot, you can use the tethered boot option in the Redsn0w for that.
