Jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 (Tethered)

  • If you run iOS 4.3.2 and you’re worry to jailbreak, you can do so using existing versions of Redsn0w. 
  • Be aware that using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 is currently a Tethered jailbreak, meaning you will need to Boot the iOS device connected to a computer.

This guide work on all devices that redsn0w currently works on, including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM, iPod Touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPad, and Apple TV 2. Each device will be Tethered though, so if you don’t mind that, proceed.

How to use Redsn0w for a Tethered iOS 4.3.2 Jailbreak

Important: Remember, this is a tethered jailbreak. Backup your iOS hardware before proceeding. If you rely on ultrasn0w unlock, do not use this jailbreak.

Before getting started, you’ll need three things:

Download iOS 4.3.2 and install it on the device you want to jailbreak (do not update if you need a carrier unlock like ultrasn0w!)
Download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 (Windows)
Download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 (Mac)
Download iOS 4.3.1 for all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV 2G. (you need 4.3.1 IPSW for this 4.3.2 jailbreak)

Once your iOS hardware is updated to iOS 4.3.2, you can proceed to jailbreak:

Follow the Following instructions to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 with redsn0w:

  1. Download iOS 4.3.1 IPSW and install it on your iOS device if you haven’t done so already
  2. Download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 (Windows & Mac OS X versions available)
  3. Launch Redsn0w and click on “Browse”
  4. Locate the iOS 4.3.1 IPSW file you downloaded in the first step and click “Open”
  5. Select “Next”
  6. Select the checkbox next to “Install Cydia” and click “Next”
  7. Make sure your iOS device is turned off and plugged into your computer and then click on “Next”
  8. Follow the on screen instructions to put your iOS device into DFU Mode: Hold down the Power button for 1 second, then continue to hold power while holding the Home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but continue to hold the Home button for another 15 seconds.
  9. Once you are successfully in DFU mode, redsn0w will perform the jailbreak for you so let it do the work. Your iOS device will then restart automatically and you will be jailbroken

Note: If you need to undo the jailbreak for any reason, it’s very simple, just restore your iOS device from within iTunes.

Now everything is identical except for the following step…

When you click on “Browse” for IPSW, choose iOS 4.3.1 IPSW and NOT iOS 4.3.2
Proceed with the jailbreak as usual

Your iOS device will reboot into a jailbroken iOS 4.3.2. Because this is a tethered jailbreak, anytime you reboot the hardware you’ll need to perform a tethered boot through redsn0w by launching the app and selecting “Just boot tethered right now” and clicking ‘next.’

Boot tethers are not complicated, just annoying. Personally, I would advise to wait for an untethered jailbreak, which should be available in the near future. iOS 4.3.2 is mostly bug fixes and security updates, so you aren’t missing out on anything exciting by delaying the update. We’ll keep you posted when a new untethered jailbreak comes available.

Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against passion and your appetite.
