How To Install The Redsn0w Jailbreak on Your iOS 4.3.5
another counter attack from the jailbreakers to answer the latest Apple update – the iOS 4.3.5. We have seen these past few months the battle between the jailbreakers and Apple itself. While the jailbreakers are constantly jailbreaking Apple’s iOS, Apple on the other hand, is continuously coming up with updates to block them – and the battle goes on. Apple just recently launched the iOS 4.3.5 update to ward of security flaws that jailbreakers used to jailbreak iOS 4.3.4, and yet with just a short period of time, the newest update is jailbroken, again.
This time around, it’s a tethered jailbreak. There are two types of jailbreak. The first one is the untethered one, which means that your device is jailbroken as long as you haven’t restored it, or updated it to an update that would void the jailbreak. Meanwhile, a tethered jailbreak is the jailbreak that loses its charm whenever the device is reset. Hence, every time you reset the device you’re going to have to jailbreak the gadget again to continue using it as a jailbroken device.
How to Install the Redsn0w Jailbreak
Before we start jailbreaking you have to download a couple of files first: iOS 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 Firmware IPSW files, and Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 files which matches your computer (whether its Windows or Mac). Make sure that your iTunes is also updated as well. When you have completed downloading all the files needed, and have updated your iTunes already, then we could start jailbreaking. Run the files that you have downloaded a while ago. It will notify you to install Cydia. Accept it and click next to continue. Redsn0w would again prompt you that you should turn off your device and connect it to your computer. Just follow all the instructions and you’ll be okay. After the process you should enter the DFU mode, this is done by holding down both the Home and the Sleep/Wake button for a short while. just keep your device plugged in until you see that the entire process is finished. Once your iPad turns on, it’s already jailbroken. Enjoy!
