Jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 on iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G & iPad with PwnageTool Bundles [Tethered] [How-To Guide]

Here is a step-by-step guide to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 on iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G & iPad using unofficial PwnageTool bundles created by DjayB6 (@DjayB6). You can use these bundles to patch PwnageTool 4.3 which can then create iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW for your iDevice. Restoring iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW through iTunes will jailbreak your iDevice on iOS 4.3.2 but keep in mind that it'll be a tethered jailbreak. Tethered jailbreak means if your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad loses its power due to any reason, you must boot it into a tethered jailbroken state using TetheredBoot Utility.

Steps to Boot iDevice into Tethered Jailbroken State:

As this jailbreak is tethered, so you need to boot your iDevice into tethered jailbroken state on every restart. To do so, you can use TetheredBoot Utility created by Msft.Guy.

  1. Download TetheredBoot.zip utility from here and extract the zip on your desktop.
  2. Create a copy of iOS 4.3.2 custom IPSW you just created with PwnageTool. Rename it from .IPSW to .ZIP and extract it on your desktop. Once done, open the extracted directory and copy two files namely kernelcache.release.n90 and iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu on your desktop.
  3. Extracting IPSW

  4. Create a new folder on your desktop and name it tetheredboot. Put kernelcache.release.n90, iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu, tetheredboot and itnl in this folder.
  5. TetheredBoot Utility

  6. Turn off your iPhone completely, open the Terminal app and use the command below:
  7. sudo -s

  8. After executing the above command, Terminal will prompt you for your administrator password. Enter your administrator password and use the command below:
  9. For iPhone 4:

    /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n90

    TetheredBoot Command for iPhone 4

    For iPhone 3GS:

    /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n88

    TetheredBoot Command for iPhone 3GS

    For iPad:

    /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.k48

    TetheredBoot Command for iPad

    For iPod Touch 4G:

    /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n81ap.RELEASE.dfu /Users/Jaxov/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n81

    TetheredBoot Command for iPod Touch 4G

  10. After executing the above commands, you will see some code running on your Terminal screen. After a while, you will be prompted to put your iDevice into DFU mode. Use the following steps to put your iDevice into DFU mode:
    • Hold down Home and Power button simultaneously for 10 seconds.
    • After 10 seconds, release the Power button but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.
    • Now your iDevice should be in DFU mode.

    okay so i manage to make it to the end, at step 11 everything seemed good but my phone froze, either that or it was going extremely so, i left it alone for about an hour and nothing really happened, does that mean i did something wrong?
