Hi Expert, I’m very new to jailbreak. Currently I’m using iphone 4 with 4.3 (8F190) version software. Do I need to upgrade for 4.3.1 then jailbreak or please advice. And what is the latest working jailbreak tool that I can use. Thanks

First off, how do you get service, i.e. Baseband version?

If its not 1.59.00 then just update to 4.3.1 and then use latest Redsn0w to jailbreak, if it is 1.59.00 then post back.

Hey velthan. From malaysia as well.

First u need to upgrade to 4.3.1.

Download redsn0w and use the same .ipsw file that u use.

If in windows it'll be in c:/user/user/appdata/roaming/apple... From there just search .ipsw

I useredsn0w its easy and fast

Baseband version had to be checked as it could if been unlockable and I didn't want to be responsible for blindly leading you to 4.3.1 & Redsn0w

Venu, So what is the risk by doing jailbreak ?

(04 Apr '11, 09:52) velthan velthan's gravatar image

Velthan i assume your iphone is from digi with idata right? If yes u wont have problem with baseband.

(04 Apr '11, 09:54) VeganPolice VeganPolice's gravatar image

Risk in relation to what? If you're currently jailbroken at 4.2.1 then restore/update to 4.3.1 and use Redsn0w to rejailbreak.....simples.

That's a commercial game, it's in the App Store, not cydia.

Oh ok... Just to clarify, is that cydia from all tool is same or the package will be different? I mean redsnow cydia same with greenpoison cydia?

(06 Apr '11, 23:06) velthan velthan's gravatar image

Cydia is cydia. The only difference is that all the tools install cydia 1.0.3366-1 except the brand new sn0wbreeze 2.5.1, which installs cydia 1.1.1. That doesn't matter though, because cydia will update itself to the latest version when you run it.
