Untethered jailbreak arrives for iOS 4.3.2

If you want the latest of Apple software for your iDevice(s), you'd know that iOS 4.3.2 has beenavailable for nearly a week, but up until now there was no way to perform an untethered jailbreak. Now, freedom-lovers can get low-level access to their gadget after @i0n1c, the hacker behind the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak, used the same exploit from the previous version to port the solution to the newest version of the iOS kernel.


The iPad 2 is not supported and currently the iPhone 4 has also been written out pending a fix, so before you start hacking and slashing, check out the list of supported gizmos below. You should also stay away from this if you need an unlock, as this will only jailbreak your device.


Supported devices:


  • iPhone3GS
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1


How to jailbreak your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad on iOS 4.3.2:


1. To jailbreak, you'll need Redsn0w, which is available for both Windows and Mac.


2. Your second step, would be to download the iOS 4.3.2 firmware IPSW file for your device. Note that it's very important to get the exact firmware matching your device.


3. Next, you'll need to update/restore to iOS 4.3.2 if you haven't done this yet.


4. Finally, you fire up the Redsn0w executable file, browse to the downloaded firmware and follow the instructions. And voila – once your iDevice restarts, you'll have a fully jailbroken iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. Try with caution and don't forget to share your experience in the comments below!
