These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 4 on the 4.3.3 firmware using RedSn0w for Mac.


Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download RedSn0w from here (https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc15.zip?attredirects=0&d=1) and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 4.3.3 firmware from below and place it in the same folder.

4.3.3 (4 GSM): http://appldnld.apple.com/iPhone4/041-1011.20110503.q7fGc/iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw

Extract the RedSn0w zip file by double clicking it.

Step Two
Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.

Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down Option and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPhone.

Step Ten
RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode here (iClarified - iPhone - How to Put an iPhone Into DFU Mode)

Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.

Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.

Step Eleven
Your iPhone will now reboot

Step Twelve
RedSn0w will then begin uploading the new RAM Disk and Kernel.

Step Thirteen
Once this is complete you will be notified that RedSn0w is done. Click the Finish button. When your iPhone finishes rebooting (5 minutes or so) it will be jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard.

Tethered jailbreaks require you to connect your device to your computer and boot it with software every time the device reboots or loses power. An untethered jailbreak does not. That is the only difference.

If you don't have 4.3.3 SHSH there's no way to update to that firmware. You can jailbreak 4.3.1 with JailbreakMe

iFaith will only let you dump the SHSH for the firmware you are currently on(so you could dump your 4.3.1 SHSH in case you ever need to restore 4.3.1)

You cant go anywhere but 5.0.1 without shsh.

But if you do, you have to do it with a custom ipsw so you dont update your baseband or the phone will lock and will be unusable. Let me know if you need details
