How to Jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 Untethered on Windows & Mac Using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC13?

iPhone Dev-Team has just released Redsn0w 0.9.6RC13 which can be used to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 untethered on all supported iDevices except iPad 2. As reported by i0n1c himself, Apple failed to patch his untethered exploit in iOS 4.3.2, so he ported the same exploit to 4.3.2's kernel which was previously used for iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak. According to Dev-Team, PwnageTool for iOS 4.3.2 untethered jailbreak will be out sometime this week.

Redsn0w 0.9.6RC13


  • iDevices Supported: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad-1
  • If you rely on an unlocked iPhone, DO NOT follow this guide otherwise you will lose your unlock. If you do not want to wait for the official PwnageTool release, first use these PT bundles to upgrade your firmware to iOS 4.3.2 and then run Redsn0w 0.9.6RC13 over it to get untethered jailbreak.
  • If you are previously jailbroken on iOS 4.3.2 tethered using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC12, you can re-run Redsn0w 0.9.6RC13 over your existing jailbreak to go untethered.

      Use TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for iOS 4.3.2 I am assuming that you have successfully restore iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW made with Sn0wbreeze 2.2. I am also assuming that you have iOS 4.3.2 SHSH blobs in Cydia and you saved them locally before restoring your iPhone.

        rudresh1286315 years, 5 months ago


        i tried to save my shsh blobs locally by using tiny umbrella but it didnt worked. i didn’t find shsh blobs locally in tiny umbrella. i guess i dont have shsh blobs in cydia. but when update started in itunes i thought every thing will ended up nicely. but i’m not at all in aware of i’ll land up in infinite recovery mode loop. then i tried fixrecovery to kick my device out of recovery mode, i found this log Hooking jump_command exiting libpois0n at the end in my terminal window and rest of the process runned in my device. again after completing this process i still got the same problem. i’m bit desperate now. plz help me in this.

          Download stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW for your iPhone from here and restore it. Do not use TinyUmbrella as restoring stock or custom IPSW of iOS 4.3.3 do not require SHSH blobs. This will kick your iPhone out of recovery or DFU mode loop.

            If you are restoring iOS 4.3.3 stock IPSW and you are getting error 3194, follow this guide to fix it.

      Wolverine5 years, 6 months ago

      Just close iTunes at that time. Jailbreak it using the steps below and then restore from backup!

    nice topic thanks

    i want to ask i now use 4.3.1 with jailbreak RedSnow
    if i want to upgrade to 4.3.2 what will happen to my program that i installed
    i will lose all my program or …….

      Wolverine5 years, 6 months ago

      Yep you will lose all Cydia apps (DEBs) but you can create a backup of your App Store + Installous apps by syncing your iPhone with iTunes. After restoring stock iOS 4.3.2 IPSW and jailbreaking your iDevice with Redsn0w, you can restore that backup. Also note that do not use this version as Redsn0w 0.9.6RC14 is already out
