We bring you an easy tutorial for how to Jailbreak iOS 4.3.5 On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod touch (not confirmed for The iPhone 4 CDMA Verizon 4.2.10/4.2.9 Firmware Or iPad 2). This Jailbreak is Tethered and a Video tutorial is also provided at the end of this article.
Step 1: Download iOS 4.3.5 and iOS 4.3.4 (required by this version of Redsn0w) firmware file for your device from the links given below at the end.
Step 2: Download Redsn0w 0.9.8b4. Also make sure you are running the latest version of iTunes.
Step 3: Now start Redsn0w, browse for the iOS 4.3.4 firmware file (NOT the 4.3.5) that you downloaded in Step 1 and point it towards Redsn0w.
Step 4: Once Redsn0w is done recognizing the firmware file, click Next and there you’ll be taken to a new window. Simply check the Install Cydia box as shown below and leave other options as it is for now. Once completed, click Next.
Step 5: Redsn0w will instruct you to power down your device and plug it in to your computer. Follow the onscreen instructions and then click Next to continue.
Step 6: On this screen you will have to put your device in DFU mode with a combination of the Power button and the Home button for a certain amount of time, simply follow the onscreen instructions on how to do so. The combination is mostly like this:
- Hold down Power button for 5 seconds.
- Now without releasing the Power button, hold down the Home button simultaneously with the Power button for 10 seconds.
- Let go of the Power button but keep on holding the Home button for another 15 seconds
Step 7: Redsn0w will now jailbreak your device, don’t do anything weird at this point, just let Redsn0w finish. We would recommend that you don’t do anything with your PC or Mac at all during the process. Sitting idle and waiting for the process to end on its own is much advised.
Now once your iPhone/iPod/iPad finishes your iDevice will reboot and your Cydia will crash when opened, don’t forget to check this iphone 5 battery replacement if needed. What we will need to do to fix this is to open Redsn0w and select the 4.3.4 Firmware, then select the option “Just boot tethered now”. Again enter DFU mode and this process will take much less time than the jailbreak. A pineapple will appear on the screen and this means the tethered boot is working. Just to let you know, You will have to follow Step 2 whenever your battery dies or you power off your device to get your iDevice to boot properly. You can also try looking for major geek downloads if you need free software.
