Hi, is there untethered jailbreak tool available for iOS 4.3.5 firmware for iPhone 4? If there is, then what jailbreak tool should I use to jailbreak iOS 4.3.5? Can I use Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze, or PwnageTool? I have accidentally restored my iPhone to iOS 4.3.5 and I need to get a jailbreak for my device as soon as possible.

Hello Janice, unfortunately, there’s no untethered jailbreak
available for iOS 4.3.5 as well as on iOS 4.3.4
for all iOS devices (i.e. iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Apple TV 2G). For your information, the Cupertino, California-based Apple released the iOS 4.3.4 and iOS 4.3.5 to permanently patch the security hole used by Comex on his JailbreakMe 3.0
to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPad 1, and iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3. Additionally, these software updates also killed the untethered jailbreak exploit which was developed by the German iPhone hacker Stefan Esser. The exploit was utilized on Redsn0w
, and Sn0wbreeze
to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 up to iOS 4.3.3. Hopefully, the iPhone Dev-Team have come up with a solution on how to get untethered jailbreak after the released of the final version of iOS 5 firmware.
Anyway, you can use Redsn0w 0.9.8b3 (for Mac OS X and Windows) to jailbreak iOS 4.3.5 on all iOS devices except for the iPad 2. You can check this blog post on how to jailbreak using Redsn0w 0.9.8b3 (just point it to iOS 4.3.4 instead of iOS 4.3.5). However, you should be note that this version of Redsn0w offers tethered jailbreak only.
