iOS 4.3.5 Jailbreak Possible with Redsn0w

Jul 26, 2011 - 158 Comments

Redsn0w 0.9.8b3 For the die-hard jailbreakers out there, you can jailbreak the newly released iOS 4.3.5 using the same redsn0w 0.9.8b3 version that worked for 4.3.4.

As before, the big caveat here is that it’s a tethered jailbreak, meaning it must be reconnected to a computer anytime you want to reboot the iOS device or if it runs out of battery.

This is what you’ll need:

You need to download both versions of the iOS firmware for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (iPad 2 is not supported), and you’ll want to point redsn0w at the older 4.3.4 firmware. The rest of the procedure is the same as always, just follow the onscreen instructions to put the iOS device into DFU mode, then boot tethered, and you’ll be jailbroken as expected.

Personally, I don’t like tethered jailbreaks, but for many users they don’t mind the tethered boot process since it is fairly rare that an iPhone ever turns off, and this is for you.

  2. Kingsley says:

    I jail broke my iPhone 3GS. The battery died and I was trying to boot tethered with redsnow. During the process, the phone died and shows no sign of life in it. I thought that was battery issue, I plugged it into power to charge but still no sign of life. Even the battery level that shows up when u charge your phone doesn’t come up.also the apple logo doesn’t show up after several hours of charging the phone. The computer doesn’t recognize the phone anymore when plugged in. Please help me with any ideas on how to power up the phone. Thamks

  8. Enque says:

    I have a question. I just bought a 16 Gb version of iphone 4 running iOS 4.3.5. The phone has been unlocked using Gevey Sim (I think!). Its the unlock method where u say accept on the first screen then dial 112 then wait a couple of seconds then turn airplane mode on and off. (I think thats Gevey sim card). Anyways, i bought the iphone 4 the applications i would get on cydia, but now im stuck with the appstore. I don’t want tethered upgrade. So, can i downgrade 4.3.5 to 4.3.3 (Without blobs or whatever, like i said, i just bought it), and will it affect the Gevey turbo sim? If anyone has a Verified method of downgrading 4.3.5 to 4.3.3, please tell me.

  9. Maria says:

    All you experts out there, I jailbroke my iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3.5) with Redsn0w and then realize that the process upgraded the firmware to 04.10.01, which made it hard to unlock. Any hopes to unlock still?

  10. chae says:

    3gs ios 5.0 was successfully unlocked but the screen has gone black and will not turn on. i have tried the tethered reboot with redsn0w but is gets stuck at waiting for reboot. anyone know how to fix this?

    • Matt says:

      Use the Recovery Fix in Redsn0w. Also you are on iOS 5, this article is about iOS 4.3.5, so make sure you use the newest redsn0w, you can find it in our search.

    HEELPPP!!My iPhone 4.3.1GOT jailbroken LAST MONTH and then NOW as I was going to make a international call it got stuck and now all I see is the apple logo on it AND OFF. When the phone got jailbroken I was told to never turn it off because I would have to jailbreak it all over again. So what can I do now? Is this happening because I havEN’T upgraded it to IPhone 4.3.5?

    I jailbroke my iphone 4 tethered with redsn0w. Then booted “tethered right now” It seemed to work for about 24 hrs. then I powered off my device and it would not “boot tethered right now”.

    After some panic I tried a restore with iTunes trying both DFU and recovery mode. Still no joy. 3194 error….doing the host file trick does NOT work.

    iPhone Totally useless.

    what could be causing this? and how do i get past it? I’m jailbreaking from a mackbook running snowleopard

  67. Kenny Therriault says:

    I have a question, because my iphone 3GS WILL NOT jailbreak with redsn0w. I have a mac. I think i have tried every version of redsn0w. The closest i have gotten to it working is i get past DFU mode, and redsn0w is doing the jailbreak. I use the 4.3.4 firmware just like it tells me. (Ive tried muiple firmware downloads) Then it says waiting to reboot and my phone either reboots without cydia or goes to a white screen. Either way it never says, “Done!” it always says, “There has been a problem” or something like that. I’ve been working on this ALL DAY yesterday and today to no avail. Someone please help me. PLEASE.

    • M says:

      The iPhone has to be updated to 4.3.5 already, then you point the newest version of Redsn0w at the 4.3.4 firmware and then jailbreak with that.

  68. Khadeer says:

    I have iPhone 4 with 4.3.5 firmware. I want downgrade it with 4.3.3 but in restoring it checked with apple and giving error 1943.

    when i got this for my 32 gig 4g ipod touch it wouldnt allow me to install instalous with cydia and i couldnt access my settings can anybody tell me what i did wrong?

    • help2 says:

      mine too! i jailbroke it with redsn0w 4.3.4 and then i tried to install Installous but it just wont appear on my home screen. then i tried to click around the Installous page in Cydia and my ipod just FROZE. i held the power button and it got stuck in the apple logo, and i had to DFU it and did a full restore with itunes (THANK GOD). now i dont dare to do a tethered jailbreak anymore. i did an untethered one with greenpois0n with my old ipod and it worked seamlessly. i dont understand why Installous wont appear in my homescreen this time despite Cydia being installed perfectly :(

  76. dean says:

    I have not been able to jailbreak my phone.

    I had 4.3.4, tried to jailbreak.
    Lost everything – including ability to make calls. It won’t load a carrier list, wont do anything.
    When I restore it then sticks on apple logo for ever.
    I had to do full restore and update to 4.3.5
    not happy.

  77. dubbya says:

    Anybody else having problems with the IPSW for 4.3.5? I downloaded this one and am running the proper version of redsn0w but get a message back that it is unable to recognize the IPSW. Haven’t seen anyone else on the thread complaining about that. Wish I could just downgrade to 4.3.3…but noooooooo…

    • Pablo says:

      When Redsn0w asks for the IPSW you must load the 4.3.4 regardless that a 4.3.5 is installed in the iDevice. Then the process runs correctly.

    • faisal says:

      run redsn0w 0.9.8.b4 and firmeare 4.3.4 on yur upgraded iphone 4.3.5 first install only cydia then run the application again and this time run “just boot in tethered” it will works and plz avoid to reboot your iphone. if it hapens then connect to the computer and again run”just boot in tethered”.
      try and enjoy.

  80. cydia says:

    i just jailbroke my ipod touch 4g and each time i try to open cydia, it instantly crashes. what do i do?

    • dubbya says:

      You need to go back into redsn0w and use the ” just boot tethered” option once you’ve installed cydia

      • zakr says:

        THANK YOU!!!!!

      • Tanner says:

        heres my question

        i have an ipod 4th generation, it was 4.3.5 firmware before i jailbroke it, now it accidentally shut off one day and i have very few options of what to do. I can turn it on to the apple logo or put it into recovery mode. I have tried to put it into dfu with every combination of buttons, but it just wont work. Also when i try to restore it with a downloaded ipsw i get error 21 lol used to get 3194 until i removed and backed up the hosts file.
        so how do i get it into dfu or just get rid of error 21

  81. pwk says:

    so now? 4.3.5 can jailbreak already or not?

  82. bigJ says:

    I had the 4.3.1 jailbroken and it died last night, i tried turning it back on this morning and it just got stuck on the apple logo, after about 5 hrs of trying to reboot it I had to restore it to the 4.3.5 and lost everything. Whats the risk of a tethered jailbreak vs a non tethered?I know you have to hook it to a computer to turn it on, but do you have to rejailbreak it after? Thanx.

  83. YaSh says:

    I still don’t understand why the hell 4.3.5 ipsw file required for jailbreaking if redsn0w has to be pointed out to 4.3.4…. can anyone tell me

  84. […] 0 Times in 0 Posts maybe this will help Its Tethered but at least you'd have something iOS 4.3.5 Jailbreak Possible with Redsn0w Reply With […]

  85. Dave Lister says:

    For me there was no other option than to upgrade to 4.3.5, my new iPod Touch 4G 64gb was shipped with 4.1, and unfortunately the shipping got delayed so 4.3.5 was released before it arrived…
    And many of the apps/games I use/play since my iPhone 3GS purchase requires much more recent version of iOS than 4.1…
    I’ve tried this tethered jailbreak, but it don’t do much good (even if it does work).
    As soon as I try to install something in Cydia that requires the mobile substrate, I get stuck at the Pineapple logo during reboot, even when I’m doing a tethered boot…
    So 4.3.5 is jailbreakable with redsn0w, but at least for my iPod Touch 4G it’s useless to do so :<
    Hopefully there will be a proper jailbreak once 5.0 is released :)

  86. Gehaktmolen says:

    My Iphone is dead now:( It doesn’t get further than showing the Apple sign. Can somebody please help me? Thanks!!

    • MikeyG says:

      A long as it just shoes the apple logo take it to a store and they’ll exchange it under warranty.

    • VK Tan says:

      i got the same problem too last two days but now i ve solve it already. first u need to connect your phone to your computer then hold the sleep and home button for 20sec. Then u will see the recovery sign (cable connect to itunes), then press “restore” on your itune.

      Good Luck!! and hope this will help. :)

    • Arup says:

      Just connect to itunes and get into DFU mode. Itunes will allow you to restore

    • faisal says:

      again connect the iphone with computer and run again only “just boot in tethered” it will works with jailbreak. try to avoid reboot

    • cypher says:

      you need to re jailbreak your phone and boot tethered. start your pc with jailbreak software, plug your phone in and put it in dfu mode. to do this there are a couple easy steps. 1, hold down power button for 5 seconds. 2, while still holding power button hold down home button for 10 seconds. 3, release the power button but keep holding home button for 15 seconds. if you followed steps correctly your screen should be black and your device in dfu mode. now run redsn0w ands select “just boot tethered right now” this should get you up and running. and remember, you ALWAYS HAVE TO DO THIS TO START YOUR PHONE.

    • 1onic says:

      if you used redsn0w then all you have to do is click extras instead of the jailbreak button. then click “boot from tether.” this will boot your ipod.


      u need to plug ur iphone in to ur computer again and go to the jailbreak app and press “just boot” everytime ur iphone crashes or losses all its battery

  87. Slyppry says:

    Technically that is not correct. Depending on what tweaks you have installed, it is possible that the device will actually boot, but packages that have invalid signatures, such as cydia, will not work. Also if you have installed things like SBSettings, it will not boot at all as these hook deep into the os but will not function without the Jailbreak, hindering the device from even starting up all the way. You would be stuck in a boot loop until you jailbreak again. Tethered sux, but it is better than nothing…

  88. Malik says:

    i have a question, if you do a tethered jailbreak and your iphone turns off can you turn it back on without having to use a computer

    • Matt says:

      Yes but it won’t work without a tethered boot.

        you say yea but then you tell him hes gonna need a tethered boot. Meaning he needs a computer. So to answer his question, No you cannot do it WITHOUT having a computer. You need a computer, and not any computer… one with the jailbreak stuff on it.

        • Matt says:

          Yes what you say is absolutely correct, thank you for the clarification. The phone will technically turn on without redsn0w, it will just be unusable without the tethered boot.

    If you have your iPhone jailbroken (untethered) then why in the heck would you update to 4.3.5 whose sole purpose is to block jailbreaking? LOL

    I am excited for iOS 5 as well but there are a number of tweaks I enjoy that Apple still won’t allow. Custom icons, 5-columns, CallLock, SSHing, 5-icon dock, MxTube, MyWi, SBSettings, etc…

  90. Spencer says:

    I’m increasingly less interested in jail breaking since reading more about iOS 5, I know that is Apple’s intention and I am fine with that. The main reason I used to was for Wi Fi hotspotting but then they offered it natively, now the only reason I would still want to use this is for 3G unrestrictor, but I suspect carriers will wake up and let FaceTime over (4G LTE more likely) soon anyway.

    “for many users they don’t mind the tethered boot process since it is fairly rare that an iPhone ever turns off”

    Really? I undid the jailbreak on my phone after a few weeks, since it crash (requiring a restart) more times in those few weeks than the 3 years I’ve been using the platform.

      I have the redsnow jailbreak on my iphone4 4.3.5 and it works great, however, since I am away from home and my computer A LOT, I have decided to restore my phone. When I do this I get error code 3194. Any idea what I need to do?

      • bmgx says:

        Try putting it in recovery mode like you’re about to jailbreak it.
        Hold power 5 secs, then both for 10 secs, then home for 15 secs. Then try to jailbreak it.

        • Brampton says:

          For error 3194
          Windows Platform
          1.log on with administrator priviledges
          2. go to c:windows\system32\drivers\etc
          3. click hosts and copy it at desktop
          4 now delete it from etc and restart itunes
          5 once u restore ur iphone
          6. copy that hosts file from desktop back to etc folder

            Have only had my iphone 3gs for 31 days…upgraded to ios 5 on itunes; then had this wonderful idea (sarcastic) to jailbreak my phone so that I could lock some of my folders…I have a three year old that plays on my phone. Tried several times, finally got Cydia to work properly, had researched BossPrefs and found that you could lock folders, downloaded it, iphone rebooted and now is frozen in recovery mode. Attempted to restore to factory settings through iTunes but get the message that phone needs to be taken out of recovery mode and error message 3194. So I thought I would try to jailbreak again, using the same redsn0w, and when it started running, it said no firmware was detected…error…and giving up. Really wish I had just left the dang phone alone. So, if anyone is able to give me some detailed advice, in laymen terms, I would really appreciate it. Right now I am downloading ios 5 to my desktop in hopes that I can re-add it to my phone.
