Earlier today Apple released iOS 4.3.2 for iPhone. Even though we gave a warning to jailbreakers and unlockers to stay away from iOS 4.3.2, it seems that there is good news on the jailbreak side.

By using the latest version of RedSn0w, I was able to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS on 4.3.2. All it took was just about 2 minutes of my day…

I basically ran RedSn0w and pointed it to iOS 4.3.1 instead of 4.3.2. A couple minutes later, my iPhone rebooted with Cydia installed. I’m a blank icon instead of the Cydia one for the moment but I guess it will only take the right files to edit to get it back.

I can’t confirmed if it works for any other device. I just tried on my iPhone 3GS, and no, I’m not going to risk losing my soft unlock to try that on my iPhone 4. I was able to reboot my iPhone 3GS without any problem because it has an old bootrom. Newer models will probably be tethered.

If you have an iPhone and don’t care about the unlock, give this a try and let us know how it goes.

If you’re not sure how to use RedSn0w, follow our RedSn0w guide here. Everything is exactly the same except that you have to be on 4.3.2 to begin with. Any questions, feel free to ask.

    Not really a jailbreak w/o ability to use Cydia. πŸ˜›

    • I can use Cydia, I just don’t have a blank icon for it.

      • Lucas K.

        Oooh. I misread that. My apologies.

      • Eric

        Did you reboot after the jailbreak reboot? O had a white icon after redsn0w on 4.3.1. Dis another reboot and bang it’d there.

      • I rebooted several times

      • Taylor Harris

        Heeeeeeyyy!! Sebastien’s back everyone!!!

  • Ernesto Castellanos

    I’m doing homework right now… But I’ll try it if I have time tonight. Maybe someone will try it before me.

  • ramos96

    I’d would try it but I just bought mywi πŸ˜› hoping someone else will try it also…

    I POSTED THE INFO B4 it work for iphone 4 but only tether run redsnow direct it to 4.3.1 when it finish run redsow the same way but select tether boot and it works fin for iphone 4g

  • Meanin it a temporary tether jailbreak until the DEV gods are able to upgrade it.. am i correct to say this ??

  • Lonley Gal

    hey whch version of redsnow …i wanna jailbreak mine

  • Sergio

    iPhone 4 4.3.2 jailbroken with redsnow 0.9rc12 and used the 4.3.1firmware πŸ™‚ happy camper

    • Did you reboot? It’s tethered, right?

      • Sergio

        Yea it’s tethered and your right about the logo.. An update should take care of it. And everything else works. πŸ™‚

  • Joel

    I have an iPod touch 4 and would be willing to try if I could see a benifit of iOS 4.3.2 vs the risk of a tethered JB. I’m on 4.31 and it’s working fine. JBroken with redsn0w.

  • Is the cydia icon suppose to be in white icon ? cause it seems that way and it works just jailbreak my ip4 runnin on 4.3.2

    • Sergio

      Yea you should also have an update the 1st time you open Cydia

  • i think its semi tethered.. when i reboot it goes back to normal except for cydia can’t be open

    • Sergio

      Cydia will only open if u boottether it

  • ok meanin everytime its rebootted i have to boottether it back for cydia to work rite

  • Sergio

    Got my Cydia icon after the update and and it’s only boottether otherwise Cydia won’t work. Repo sources already have updates for 4.3.2 like repo.insanelyi.com… Tether me works fine also.. Using it as of right now with my iPad 2 for this comment πŸ™‚

    • What? I thought you couldn’t jailbreak iPad 2?

  • Aydin

    Just a little fix by DEV TEAM is needed! And it should be soon!

    • Sergio

      I don’t think this update was towards the jailbreak community I think it was for the Verizon iPad 3G issues..

  • Just a thought, but have any of you tried using the Monte untether method on 4.3.2?

  • azharhamzahya

    good news again i guess

  • has anyone try installing the sbssettings seemd mine got stuck in the apple logo

    • Sergio

      A boot tether will work. I can confirm it works

  • QuarterSwede

    No surprise as the tethered jailbreak is a hardware exploit.

    • Suddle D

      Exactly. All future updates will be jailbroken on the iPhone 4 for example, tats not the issue. The only issue is there needs to be a found exploit to make it untutored.

  • Dam I just want the iPad 2 jail broken. Hopefully this doesn’t effect any iPad 2 exploits

    • Sergio

      Yea I know although I got my gestures with Xcode I would like to get the syncrocinity and themes

  • BLiNK

    Sebastian, just curious; do you have an iPhone 4 as well??

    • MrE

      read the article before you BLiNK

      • BLiNK

        haha, my bad. thank you sir

  • Nick4G

    i had to research what “tether” means and what i have to do and i like it. i jailbroke my iphone 3gs on 4.3.2 on the new bootrom and i like tether a lot better than untether. it makes me want to charge my phone more and not use cydia as much, but thank you for the info!!

  • Pedro

    will this work for the verizon iphone 4.2.7??????

  • can i jailbreak iphone 4 as well

  • Spiderioislame

    Didn’t have much of a choice when I updated to 4.3.2 so I JB’d with redsn0w… upon trying to boottether, I get stuck on the pineapple logo… any suggestions?

  • Bada

    Successfully jb my iPhone 3Gs (old boot rom) 4.3.2 With redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 via 4.3.1. It is untethered and so far no major issues except ibooks crashes on start. One other issue i had was after i installed several tweaks via cydia, upon reboot my phone stalled on the loading circle and when i got back into cydia there was an error in yellow writing.

  • pete

    I just jailbroke I iphone 4 with Redsn0w and the 4.3.1 firmware and cydia will not open I boottethered it and it still want open

  • Lalith

    I just jailbroke I iphone 4 with Redsn0w and the 4.3.1 firmware and cydia & all working good. thanks

  • Bii

    I dont know why when i jailbreaks my ipod touch 4g with redsn0w, its works. I can get the cydia but when im install an installous, they didn’t show icon installous on springboar. And i going to get sbsettings, download it and they restart my ipod. Finally, im stuck with apple logo frozen. I’d tried anytime more but its doesnt works. So sad (!_!)

    • Nick4G

      you have to go back to redsn0w and un-check mark “install cydia” and check just tethered now and put it in dfu mode. did you try that?

  • Duck

    No problems here, all working after running redsn0w 12 pointing at 4.3.1 firmware

  • bob

    My cydia app icon is white and shuts down and safari doesnt work even after i rebooted

  • bob


  • Alinaqi

  • Tan

  • Telejeesus

    How I can upgrade my iOS from 4.2.1 to 4.3.1 ??? Coz iTunes offer 4.3.2 πŸ™

    • kenneth

  • Matt

    Hi, I have ios 4.3.2 for my iphone 3gs and I am just looking to unlock it so I can use it overseas. I tried this hack but cydia just comes up blank. How can I unlock it so I can use it overseas?

  • Charlie

    After Jailbroke , you can restore if you want to. But you have to do a jailbreak again if you restored. the only problem I had with this tethered Jailbroke is that IBOOKS will not works.

  • rocker

    it JB my iphone 3gs perfectly,
    bt i m getting “no service” problem…
    can anyone tell me how to unlock it..???

  • rocker

    ios 4.3.2
    and firmware is 5.16.02

  • John

    I’m having the same problem as rocker. The jailbreak on my iPhone 4 with 4.3.2 seems to have worked fine, but I’ve got the “No Service” message in my status bar. Any ideas how to get my service back? My phone has never been unlocked, so I’m stumpted as to what the problem is. Thanks!

    • John

      Got mine working again. I did a clean restore and then jailbroke it again, and thus far everything is fine.

  • MJ

    same problem here. plus when i reboot my i phone 4 it doesnt turn on unless i go with redsnow thru computer and turn on on DFU mode. it sucks dude…

  • kuroki

    I am having a nightmare night now, Safari keeps on crashing after the new jailbreaking, cydia is not loading…

  • xiaomu

    after I jailbreak my iphone 3gs with redsnow_0.9.6rc14 cydia got as white icon and it close when i just want to open it, some1 can help?

  • McLaren


    You’ll have to boot it in tether mode via redsnow, then after the boot, cydia will work. This is what happened after jailbreaking an idevice in tethered. You’ll have to boot to tethered mode before you can use your iphone/ipod/ipad in jailbreak mode.

  • daku

    No Service problem.
    I have an iphone 3gs with 06.15.00 baseband, i accidentally updated my phone to ios 5 using iTunes.
    After that I followed instructions :
    1. Used UN_BB .ipsw file in iTunes,
    2. jailbraik with latest redsn0w.
    3. After rebooting, launch Cydia on the iPhone, and install ultrasn0w.

    Reboot (tethered), BUT, “No Service”.
