These are instructions on how to perform a tethered jailbreak of iPhone 4 on the 4.3.5 firmware using RedSn0w for Mac. If you are on 4.3.3 or lower make sure you do NOT update to iOS 4.3.5. Use the untethered JailbreakMe instead as there will likely not be an un tethered jailbreak for 4.3.4 or 4.3.5.

Those who want to unlock should make sure not to update without preserving their baseband.

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download RedSn0w from Here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 4.3.5 and 4.3.4 firmware from below and place it in the same folder.

4.3.4 (4 GSM): iPhone3,1_4.3.4_8K2_Restore.ipsw

4.3.5 (4 GSM): iPhone3,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw

Extract the RedSn0w zip file by double clicking it.

Step Two

Step Ten
RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode [url="http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1034]Here[/url] )

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

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.

BOOT TETHERED
Once RedSn0w has finished jailbreaking your device you will need to boot it tethered. Rerun RedSn0w and this time select Just boot tethered right now from the list of options instead of installing Cydia.
