Earlier today we ran the story about the untethered exploit that i0n1c created working with iOS 4.3.3. This means that you can soon jailbreak untethered. Still, if you don’t want to wait. The tethered jailbreak still exists. It’s just a bit of a pain to use for now.

That said, if you want to try it, it’s below the jump.

Remember, if you rely on a carrier unlock STAY AWAY from this.

1) Download iOS 4.3.3 and iOS 4.3.2 (Redsn0w needs this to perform the jailbreak) the easiest way to do that is to use ipswDownloader: here. Download the required IPSWs for your iDevice. It’s best to save these in a folder where you can find them in a bit. Usually a folder called jailbreaks or a temporary desktop folder, because you will need these.


2) Update via iTunes to the current iOS 4.3.3 firmware. You should now have iOS 4.3.3 installed on your device with no jailbreak.


3) Now, you will need to launch redsn0w. If you don’t have it from your previous jailbreak (it’s the same version used for iOS 4.3.2, you can download it at the following links:

4) Direct redsn0w to your iOS 4.3.2 ipsw. Again, make sure it’s the 4.3.2 file, not 4.3.3.


5) Redsn0w will identify your firmware. Hit next.


6) The next screen will ask you to “Select Your Options.” Check off “Install Cydia”


7) Redsn0w will now give you instructions “Please make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer.” From here, it will have you follow some onscreen instructions for putting your device in DFU mode. Follow these exactly, as it’s a little tricky the first time. This is important and can totally throw you off your groove.


8) Let redsn0w go to work. When your device restarts, it will be jailbroken and running iOS 4.3.3.


For now, you must physically plug in your iDevice and run redsn0w each time. When you launch redsnow you will have to use the “just boot tethered right now” option in Redsn0w.
