In this post we are going to show you in a step by step guide how you can jailbreak (untethered) iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and Apple TV2 running on iOS 4.3.1 using the latest Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 version.
And if you have got iPad 2, don’t try this method as it is not compatible with this device at present.
Today Apple released iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone 4, iPad, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 2. If you have updated your device to this release but now facing some issues with your favorite Cydia apps, you can downgrade your device to iOS 4.2.1/iOS 4.3 using this guide.
It is to be noted that jailbreak for iOS 4.3 and iOS 4.3.1 is tethered for now. And as some users don’t feel comfortable with tethered jailbreak, so they can also downgrade iOS 4.3.1 to iOS 4.2.1 (iOS 4.2.1 can be jailbroken untethered using Greenpoison).
Earlier today we reported that Sn0wbreeze 2.3 has been released by iH8sn0w. Sn0wbreeze 2.3 can jailbreak iOS 4.3 on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad but the jailbreak is tethered boot at the moment meaning you have to connect your device with PC to get jailbroken state on it.
The complete step by step guide to jailbreak your idevice using Snowbreeze 4.3 is posted after the break.
Last week Apple released iOS 4.3 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices and as you know once you have updated your device to this new version, you can’t restore to previous iOS version.
iOS downgrading is possible only if you have SHSH blobs saved on cydia server for iOS to which you are downgrading. So if you have already saved SHSH blobs for iOS 4.2.1, you can restore to iOS 4.2.1 easily.
The only problem which you face after downgrading iOS 4.3 to iOS 4.2.1 is Recovery Loop. Every time you turn on the iDevice you see “Connect to iTunes” image on it and when you connect it to PC, iTunes recognizes recovery mode on your device instead of activating it.
Yesterday Twitter released an updated version of its popular twitter client for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. Twitter version 3.3 includes many new features like Trends bar (iPhone), autocomplete user-names and hashtags etc.
Trendbar shows trends and other important things right on the top of timeline. For some users this new feature is very useful but others find it very annoying.
Whenever you try to restore your iDevice to custom iOS 4.2.1 firmware using iTunes, you end up with errors like Error 1604, 1600, 1601 etc. To bypass such errors, the iPhone Developer iH8sn0w has released an updated version of iREB which is now compatible with all iOS 4.2.1 devices.
The main function of iREB is to put your device into Pwned DFU mode so that you can restore to custom iOS 4.2.1 firmware cooked with Snowbreeze or PwnageTool.
A quick fix is now available in Cydia store that lest you read the DRMed / rightfully purchased iBooks on already jailbroken device on iOS 4.2.1.
Though the latest PwnageTool 4.2 version and Snowbreeze 2.2 version also resolve the problem while building custom iOS firmware but you have to restore to this custom iOS – a time consuming task.
Here is the step by step guide for Windows users to apply untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 devices while using Greenpoison RC5. Greenpois0n Windows version jailbreaks all idevices except Apple TV2, which will supported in the next update.

Last week Apple released iOS 4.3 beta for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G. This beta version brings a new feature called “Multitouch/Multitasking Gestures” for iPad.
According to a BGR report, Apple is also testing Multitasking Gestures for iPhone. On the other side Apple has already made it clear during the release of iOS 4.3 beta 2 that this new feature will not be enabled for customers in final build.
To activate any idevice (iPhone, iPad etc) on iOS 4.3 via iTunes, you need to have UDID of your idevice registered on a developer account with Apple. But there are two methods floating around the web which can allow you to hacktivate (activate) iOS 4.3 on iPhone without having a developer account.
Neither we tested it and nor we recommend others to use this method if they haven’t enrolled themselves in the iPhone Developer Standard or Enterprise program.
If you have upgraded your iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPod Touch 4G/3G to iOS 4.3 for testing purpose and now you are facing any issues with your favourite apps on this new release or you want to downgrade your device to jailbreakable iOS 4.2.1 / iOS 4.1, here is complete step by step guide to downgrade iOS 4.3 to previous iOS versions.
This downgrade process is only for those who have saved SHSH Blobs to Cydia servers for iOS 4.2.1 and iOS 4.1 and we hope you all have done so.
iPhone Dev Team has just released a new Redsn0w 0.9.7 b1 version with a feature called “Jailbreak Monte” using the “Backup Method“, that allows to jailbreak (untethered) certain devices on iOS 4.2.1.
