For this jailbreak to work on your iOS device, you will need to use the PwnageTool 4.3, iTunes 10.2.1, the iOS 4.3.2 firmware, ‘tetheredboot’ tool and a Mac OS X computer. Also, you should know that if your Apple device is based on a carrier unlock, then you shouldn’t jailreak it, because otherwise you will manage to lock your device. Cydia app is fully supported by the PwnageTool 4.3 along with the Hacktivation.

iPhone Dev Team created the PwnageTool and it was released in April 2008 for the iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G. Now, it is supported by the iPhone 3GS  and 3GS with new bootrom, iPhone 4 / 3GS / 3G, iPod Tuch 4G /3G and on the Apple TV 2G. PwnageTool is a freeware iOS jailbreaking application, with all copyright titles being owned by the iPhone Dev Team. It works with Mac OS X computers, while the Windows version in currently in ‘work in progress’ state.

All info listed in this post will teach you how to successfully jailbreak your iOS device with the PwnageTool application. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Download the PwnageTool package from here.

  2. Extract all contents in the package and then look for a ‘.bundle’ file. We will use the iPhone 4 package file which has the following name: iPhone3,1_4.3.2_8H7.bundle. Transfer it to your computer’s desktop.

  3. Now download the PwnageTool 4.3 and copy / place it into the /Applications folder. Now, right click on it and click the ‘Show Package Contents’.

  4. Go to ‘Contents >Resoruces> FirmwareBundles>’ and place the ‘iPhone3,1_4.3.2_8H7.bundle’ file in it.

  5. Now you have to download the iOS 4.3.2 IPSW firmware files. Save them on your computer’s desktop.

  6. Launch the ‘PwnageTool’ and select ‘Expert Mode’ and the iOS device you wish to jailbreak. Remember that we’ve used the iPhone 4 files for this guide.

  7. Find the iOS 4.3.2 IPSW firmware files for your iOS device.

  8. Click ‘Build’ and PwnageTool will begin to pack the custom 4.3.2 IPSW files, that you will use to jailbreak your iOS device.

  9. Now we have to boot your device into DFU mode with the PwnageTool. Please follow the PwnageTool on-screen instructions for completing this task correctly.

  10. Open iTunes and then select the iOS device owned. Now, press and hold the left ‘alt’ key on your Mac keyboard and after that click ‘Restore’ in iTunes and release it. iTunes will then ask you to choose the custom 4.3.2 firmware file location. Select it and then click ‘Open’.

  11. Now wait for iTunes to complete the jailbreak process and then you will see that the custom 4.3.2 firmware has been applied on your iOS Device. When this process is completed, please get to the next step, that tell you how to boot your iDevice in tethered state.

  12. Shutdown your iOS device. Now, we need to use the ‘’ file for Mac. Download it from here and extract all the contents comprised within the zip.

  13. From all those files, we need to use only two of them, “kernelcache.release.n90″ and “iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu”. To do it correctly, you need to create a copy of the previously custom created iOS 4.3.2 IPSW file, but make sure that you change its extension from ‘.ipsw’ to ‘.zip’. Extract all its. contents.

  14. Copy both files and then move them and the ‘tetheredboot’ app in a folder called ‘tetheredboot’ on your desktop.

  15. Now you need to power off the device and launch the ‘Terminal’ on your Mac and then enter the following command:

  • sudo -s. Type in your admin password and after that enter the commands listed below:

  • /User/< your Mac username >/desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot

  • /User/< your Mac username >/desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu

  • /User/< your Mac username >/desktop/kernelcache.release.n90

In case these lines do not work, then you should try to add ‘-i’ after the first line and ‘-k’ after the second line. Also, you can try to drag and drop the ‘tetheredboot’, iBSS and the kernelcache.release files directly into Teminal app.

Now, you should notice that some code lines are running all over the terminal screen and when this ends, you will be asked to put your device in DFU mode and to do it, you need to hold both ‘Power’ and ‘Home’ buttons pressed for 10 sec. After that release only the ‘Power’ with the Home button pressed for other 10sec. Your iOS device is now booting in DFU mode. The device will restart and wait for the operation to be completed. Terminal will complete its task and after a few minutes your iOS device will have been successfully jailbroken and tethered booted into iOS 4.3.2. Please note that you will have to repeat this task every time you restart your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Apple TV 2G iOS device.
