How To: Jailbreak iOS 4.3.5 With RedSn0w 0.9.8b4 On iPod Touch 4G And iPod Touch 3G

Apple released iOS 4.3.5 today to fix another vulnerability within the iOS firmware. As iOS 4.3.5 patches Comex’s untethered jailbreak we do not recommend updating, as you will have to bare with a *tethered Jailbreak. If you previously updated to the iOS 4.3.4 firmware, however, or do not mind a tethered Jailbreak you can follow our how to guide below for Jailbreaking the iOS 4.3.5 firmware on iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G.

*For more information about tethered jailbreaks, click here.

NOTE: This Jailbreak requires you to update/restore to the iOS 4.3.5 firmware, and then point RedSn0w 0.9.8b4 to the iOS 4.3.4 firmware (not the iOS 4.3.5 firmware).

Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is download RedSn0w 0.9.8b4 and iOS 4.3.4 from our iJailbreak Downloads Section (mirror download link: RedSn0w 0.9.8b4 Windows | RedSn0w 0.9.8b4  Mac OS X).

Step 2) – Once you have downloaded RedSn0w 0.9.8b4 to your desktop, you will need to launch it. Do this now by clicking the executable file (for Windows) or by clicking the application (for Mac OS X).

Step 3) – Once RedSn0w is up and running, you will simply need to browse for the iOS 4.3.4 firmware (NOT iOS 4.3.5).

Once you successfully select your firmware file through RedSn0w it will say “Processing firmware” then “IPSW successfully identified”.

Click the next button to continue (when you do this RedSn0w will begin preparing jailbroken data).

Step 4) – The next screen you will be brought to is a screen that features multiple checkboxes. The only checkbox that must be enabled is Cydia (as this is the default jailbreak installer); the rest of the checkboxes are optional and should only be checked if you know what you are doing.

When you have ensured “Install Cydia” is checked you can click the next button.

Step 5) – From this next screen the only thing left for you to do is put your iPod Touch into DFU mode. You will need to make sure that you turn your iPod Touch off, and you plug your iPod Touch into the computer before clicking the next button.

Once you have done this, click the next button and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 6) – Once your iPod Touch is into DFU mode, RedSn0w will handle the rest of the jailbreaking process. You just need to sit back and watch RedSn0w perform its jailbreaking magic. Once your iPod Touch is done being jailbroken, you should see Cydia on your SpringBoard. This means the jailbreak has been carried out successfully. Congratulations on jailbreaking your iPod Touch 4G/3G tethered on the iOS 4.3.5 firmware.

NOTE: How to boot tethered jailbroken iPod Touch 4G/3G after reboot, launch RedSn0w and select “Just boot tethered right now”.

    When I try jailbreaking i only get up to the part where it says “exploiting limera1n”….. how long do you wait? btw I have a 3g ipod touch 32gb, using the provided tools,but I don’t know what’s going on

  • Luly_r

    cydia icon appeared white. and when i try to open it, it closes immediately. what can i do? :/

  • Alessandro Picucci

    l’icona di cydia appare in bianco e quando ci clicco mi si apre e si richiude subito e in più non mi si apre neanche safari sull’ipod

  • Daniel J Ogas

    shouldn’t you be using the older version of apple, such as 3.3.1 or whatever version is on your ipod? i don’t think that a jailbreak is going to work if you use the tools designed for the 4g ipod touch on your 3g. 

  • Funfishn

    the iPod touch 3g uses the exact same firmware as the 4g.

  • Gabriel Scuric

    just run redsnow and boot thethered (or something like that)

  • Trrxdxt

  • Luli_robledo

    I dont know what to doo.. HELP!

  • gest 4

    i select the folder and wont reconigze it  i need help asap!! :(

  • Nowhereelse

    Those crackers apparently just lost it since the release of the 3GS and the baseband 6.15. They just started kicking left and right hoping they got it but never. In a version of redsn0w they included to place the mentioned baseband and they know darn well once it’s there in your device it will never work again. Apple isn’t playing anymore, so stop thinking you can jailbreak anything at all.

  • Tlhron

    isit common to see 0% processing of jailbreak once we enter DFU mode and redsnow is doing its work?

    Use the RedSn0w 0.9.9b4. you don’t need the firmware. I did it with my iPod touch 4G, worked like a charm.

  • help

    when i run redsn0w, it doesnt locate 4.3.4 anywhere…what do i do?

  • Kuhfjkg

    you have to reboot tethered!

  • Mr Sharki

    make sure the firmware was saved with .ipsw at the end , for example:
