Step 5: If you are having iPhone and want to preserve the current baseband only, select “Baseband Preservation Mode” otherwise select “Simple Mode” or “Expert Mode”. Simple and Expert Modes only only preserve the baseband but also jailbreak the iOS 4.3.1. We recommend you to select Simple Mode at this stage.

Step 6: Sn0wbreeze will now start cooking the custom iOS 4.3.1 firmware.

Step 7: When you see “Done” message, click on “OK” button.

Step 8: Follow the onscreen instructions to put your device into pwned DFU mode.

Restoring Custom iOS 4.3.1 Firmware Using iTunes

Launch iTunes. From the iTunes sidebar select your device. Now press the “alt” (option) button on Mac or left “Shift” button if you are on Win and then click on “Restore” button in the iTunes.

This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for custom iOS 4.3.1 which you have already cooked using Sn0wbreeze..

Now sit back and let iTunes restore iOS 4.3.1 on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. During the restore process you may see unknown error messages (1013, 1004 etc), just ignore these errors.

After the restore process completes, your device will restart in jailbroken state.
