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.
