Guide To Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone 4, 3GS and iPad1 using Redsn0w (Windows/Mac)

The Dev-Team has also updated PwnageTool for Mac to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 but Redsn0w is not only available to both Windows and Mac users but also offers a faster jailbreak process since it does not require any custom IPSW to be created.

Note: Please read through the below notes before taking action to jailbreak your iPhone

The jailbroken only compatible as listed below using this tool.
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)
  • If your iPhone is not factory unlocked and you use Ultrasn0w on your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS then please note that Ultrasn0w does not work with iOS 4.3.1 at the moment. The Dev-Team will be releasing an updated Ultrasn0w in Cydia soon.
  • You must not update your iPhone with stock firmware from Apple. In order to preserve the iPhone baseband, upgrade to iOS 4.3.1 using custom IPSW created in PwnageTool or by using TinyUmbrella only.
1. You must first download Redsn0w and the iOS 4.3.1 firmware in order to proceed with the jailbreak. Here are the links:

redsn0w 0.9.6rc9:

iOS 4.3.1 Official Firmware

2. Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone using the dock connector to USB cable. Now press Alt key on your Mac’s keyboard and click on Check for update. Windows users need to press the Shift key and then click on update. Since, RedSn0w does not create any custom IPSW you need to update your iPhone to iOS 4.3.1 before performing the jailbreak.

3. You can now select the IPSW file downloaded in the previous step to update your iPhone. In less than ten minutes, your iPhone will update and reboot.

4. Extract the RedSn0w zip archive we downloaded earlier and launch redsn0w.

5. Now click on Browse and select the IPSW file corresponding to your iPhone or other iOS device that you are jailbreaking.

6. RedSn0w will now try to identify and process the firmware file automatically. Once the firmware file has been identified click on Next. RedSn0w will now start preparing jailbreak data based on the IPSW file.

7. By default the checkbox beside Install Cydia should be selected. You do not need to change any settings here. Click Next to proceed.

8. You need to turn off your iPhone or iPod Touch after connecting it to the computer. Click on Next again. The next screen will show you instructions to put the iOS device into DFU mode.

9. You need to hold and release the iPhone buttons in the said order to place it in DFU mode in order to proceed with the iPhone jailbreak. This is the last step for the user as after this RedSn0w will do everything automatically.

10. The iPhone will be jailbroken and then rebooted.

11. Click on Finish when you see Done! on your screen.

12. Now jailbreaking process has complete with iPhone 4.3.1 iOS. Finally, sync back your iPhone to restore your backups data with iTunes.

13. For beginner user, you might be want to know what to do after Jailbreak. Check out my post here on how to use Cydia. For those who already knew about Cydia you could ignore this step.

How To Setting Personal Hotspot On iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3)

This guide will show you how to activate personal hotspot on your iPhone and share it with your wireless devices. To use personal Hotspot for the first time:

1. Go to Settings > General > Network > Personal Hotspot. This option will be available only if your network provider allows Internet tethering. If it worked before on previous versions of iOS, hotspot will work just fine.

2. Turn on Personal Hotspot by tapping once on the On/Off button. You will be prompted to enter a wi-fi password.

3. After entering the password hit Done. Next you will be asked how do you want to share the internet access. If the Wi-fi or Bluetooth radio are Off they will be turned on automatically.

4. Go ahead and choose Wi-fi and USB only. Your iPhone is now broadcasting a wi-fi network with the password you selected and the name of the network is same as that of your iPhone.

5. Now go to any wireless device like your iPod Touch or laptop and look for networks. My Mac was pretty quick to discover it.

6. The broadcast strength seemed strong enough. No matter where the iPhone was left in the room, the signal showed up pretty strong. Once connected, the iPhone will display a blue status bar(just like earlier with Internet Tethering) showing how many devices are connected.

7. If you keenly observe the hotspot service while using it, you will notice that it automatically shuts itself off after an hour approximately if not used. We do realize that wi-fi hotspots are power hungry and don’t go easy on our batteries. In order to make the hotspot active again just visit the Personal Hotspot pane which is now on the first page of your Settings app.

8. While the mobile hotspot is on over wi-fi, the iPhone can’t connect to other wi-fi networks. If you need to connect to other networks on the iPhone but leave the hotspot on go to Settings > Wi-fi and tap on Disconnect wi-fi clients.

In case you aren’t on a 3G network the hotspot will obviously stop when you make or receive a phone call. However, once the call is over everything resumes just like the call never took place.

Guide To Jailbreak iOS 4 (For iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G)

The iPhone Dev team has released a browser-based jailbreak tool known as JailbreakMe that is capable to jailbreak all models of iPhone including iPhone 4, 3GS (both old and new bootrom) and 3G running on the latest version of iOS (i.e. 4.0 or 4.0.1). “Jailbreakme” is even simpler and more user-friendly than Spirit. It is so simple that I wonder if I still need to write a guide for it. For those who do not familiar with the jailbreak process, here is the step-by-step guide to show you the process.

Please read this before your take any further action:

  • JailbreakMe should also work with iPhone that has been jailbroken with blackra1n or Spirit. But before using JailbreakMe, please restore the iPhone to iOS 4.0 / 4.01 via iTunes.
  • JailbreakMe will not hacktivate your iPhone. Your iPhone should be activated before using the browser-based jailbreak tool. You can either purchase an official SIM card or simply borrow it from your friend to activate the iPhone.
  • Remember to backup all your iPhone data via iTunes. You can simply connect the iPhone to your computer and sync all the data. This step is crucial. In any case you are stuck in the jailbreak process, you can always restore your iPhone back to the original state.
  • Though JailbreakMe should work with iPhone OS v3.x, this guide is intended for those running iOS 4. So, I suppose you have upgraded to iOS 4.0 / 4.0.1. If not, please upgrade it via iTunes.
Step 1: As JailbreakMe is a browser-based jailbreak tool, no software download is required. All you need to do is to launch the mobile Safari on your iPhone and point it to http;// If the above link doesn’t work, you can also try out http;//
Step 2: Simply slide the “slide to jailbreak” slider to kick off the jailbreak process.

Step 3: The whole jailbreak process will take several minutes to complete. Once done, the tool prompts you that cydia has been added to your iPhone. Its done!..and enjoy!

Step 4: You need to unlock after jailbreaking...for iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G user, if you need to unlock the iPhone, you can launch cydia and install ultrasn0w. You can checkout my guide here how to unlock using Ultrasn0w.

TroubleShooting & Fixes

  • You may be stuck after you kick off the jailbreak process. In that case, you can simply reboot your iPhone and go through the whole process again. Usually, the jailbreak should work normally for the next trial.
  • If you are still stuck at the purple screen after reboot, Here are the procedures:

1. Go to Settings -> Safari and then tap “Clear Cache”. Tap again to confirm the cache clean up.

2. Tap “Clear History” to clean up the browser history

3. Tap “Clear Cookies” to clean up the cookies

4. After you clean up the browser cache/history/cookies, reboot the iPhone

5. Once rebooted, point the mobile Safari to and try again.. Good Luck!

If you want to use any of the above hacks, you’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone but without selecting the multitasking option in the jailbreak process of redsn0w/PwnageTool.

It’s a cydia hack called “Features”. The hack lets you enable the missing multitasking feature via Winterboard theme. The package comes with a “multitasking” theme. You can simply enable the theme to turn on the multitasking feature.
