untethered jailbreak 4.3.1 on all devices howto

PwnageTool 4.3 allows you to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 on all devices besides the iPad2
That includes:
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad
  • AppleTV 2G
First a word of advice: ultrasn0w users don’t update yet! ultrasn0w is not yet compatible with 4.3.1.

Download PwnageTool 

Download iOS 4.3.1 for your device

Run PwnageTool, select "Expert Mode" and choose your device.
Select "Browse for IPSW..." and select the downloaded firmware for your device.
PwnageTool will automatically active your phone and prevent Baseband update so you can just click "Build".
Save the custom firmware somewhere you find it later (desktop) and wait a few minutes.
Now follow the instructions on the screen.
If it doesn't work on the first try, just do it again.
If you've done it right you should see this screen.
Now open iTunes and click "Restore" while holding the alt key.
A file dialog opens, select the custom firmware you saved on your desktop.
Select "Restore" and wait till it's done.


After that iTunes will restore you're last backup.

Now we are done, enjoy your jailbroken 4.3.1 device :)

Known Problems:

Error 1601 during restore
If you are updating from a jailbroken 4.2.1 and u used tiny umbrella, remove the 
74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
line from your /etc/hosts file and restart iTunes.


No Service
Do the same procedure again but this time uncheck "active phone" in Pwnagetool.


Thanks to the iPhone Dev Team

Lhosreiff said...

Neat, not quite sure what the purpose is though.

Mostly Irrelephant said...

Did someone try it out yet? I'm hesitant to try that out on my own. Also, I find myself less and less interested in jailbreaking cause you just have to do it over and over again. Kinda a hassle.

I have an Iphone 4 and it is jailbroken but how can i tether my phone to use my phones internet on my laptop

mac-and-me said...

@paidvacation1605
either the built in feature in 4.3.1 which allows you to make a hotspot or tether via usb, with jailbreak you can do this without authorization from your isp (just check settings)

or install mywii (10$ i think) which does the same

mac-and-me said...

@Mostly Irrelephant
sure i made this guide so i had to do it at least once ;)
but i already did this to 2 iphone4's
and 1 ipad

Did this earlier today to my ipod touch 4g using redsn0w in windows. Just restore to 4.3.1, run redsnow, follow instructions, done.

@trellin yep with redsno0w its easier epx on a touch but you dont need to preserver your baseband for unlocks ;)
