Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad 4.3.1 using Redsnow – Untethered [Guide]

The iPhone Dev Team has just released the tools to a Untethered Jailbreak for the latest iOS v4.3.1.

The device support list is as follows:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)

The iPad 2 is not supported cause it uses a newer bootrom version that still needs to be patched.

Both pwnagetool and redsnow can be used to perform this jailbreak. I’d suggest you go with Redsnow as its more easier to use and simpler.

Download RedSn0w 0.9.6rc9 :

Redsnow for Windows : Click Here

Redsnow for Mac : Click Here

PwnageTool_4.3.dmg : PwnageTool_4.3.dmg.6293151.TPB.torrent

 

The reason I highly recommend Redsnow is cause you don’t need to wipe any data i.e. you can simply click the Update button to get to 4.3.1 and retain all your Songs, Music, Apps and everything without the need for a complete re-sync as in PwnageTool.

Update to 4.3.1 using the Update button via iTunes. (iPhone 4 AtnT Locked users should NOT try this. Read the note at the end of the page for more info.)

Follow these Steps to Jailbreak your iDevice running 4.3.1 using RedSnow:

1.Open Redsnow

2. Click on Browse and select the IPSW firmware file for 4.3.1.

For Mac the Location is : Your Name > Library > iTunes > iPad Software Updates

For Windows the location is : C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

3. Once the IPSW is successfully identified, click on Next. Now you will get the following screen to prepare you to boot into DFU Mode inorder to load the exploit.

4. Click Next and you will get the steps to enter DFU Mode. If you’re still finding it difficult to enter DFU mode, follow this nice video tutorial which explains the procedure nicely.

5. Once you correctly enter DFU, you will see the following screen :

6. Your device will go start the Jailbreak Process. Wait for it to be finished and you will have an Untethered Device with 4.3.1.

 

Note for Factory Locked iPhone 4 Users:

For those using an iPhone unlocked with ultrasn0w do not update to 4.3.1 using the official method. If you already have, then tough luck. The iPhone 4 baseband is very difficult to hack and would take a while to get patched.

For others with iPhone 4 on older firmware and unlocked with ultrasn0w, please stay where you are until ultrasn0w is updated for 4.3.1. Once ultrasn0w is updated to support 4.3.1 you will have to use pwnagetool to create a custom IPSW and then update. Updated ultrasnow is said to be released today on Cydia.
Another sureshot way to make sure your carrier locked devices stay unlocked even after an upgrade of iOS versions you can purchase SIM Unlock tools. Some of these tools even provide iPhone 5 SIM unlocking!

Jailbreak iPod Touch 3G 8Gb/32Gb/64Gb

iPod Touch 3G was launched a couple of months back with improved Processor and Graphics Capabilities (32Gb/64Gb). But along with that, they came with the 3.1 Firmware which prevented Jailbreaking.

A sort of temporary (tethered) Jailbreak is now available for iPod Touch 3G. Jailbreaking an iPod unlocks a lot of possibilities such as Custom Themes, some cool Apps and ahem *cracked games* too.

Blackra1n RC2 now supports Jailbreaking of the iPod Touch 3G 8Gb along with 32 and 64Gb variants.

Follow this guide to Jailbreak your iPod Touch 3G :

Apple to activate hidden FM Radio in iPhone and iPod Touch

iphone-fm

The iPhone and iPod Touch have most of the features any Music device should have. But many people missed an FM Radio. Well there seems to be some good news for FM lovers.

Apple was always reluctant to include a FM Radio in their iPod lineup but with the inclusion of  FM Radio in their latest iPod Nanos opened up hopes for inclusion of FM in other Apple devices too.

The current iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G have a FM Receiver Module, just that theres no software to make use of it.

Apparently Apple is waiting for the integration of Apple Music Store and FM App so that users can buy the Song which they like while listening to FM.

This is not the first time that Apple has decided to keep a feature locked, Apple had previously kept some features hidden initially like the iPod 2Gs Bluetooth. It was 10 months later that Apple decided to make use of the Bluetooth feature.

As to how long will it take for the Official Radio.app to launch is best known by Apple itself. We all can just cross our fingers and wait for the Best!
