I have iPhone4, Version 4.3.2, Modem Firmware 04.10.01

What is the best Jailbreak for my device: sn0wbreeze 2.6 Or Redsn0w

And Why?

Yeah I think Sn0wbreeze will allow the multitasking gestures option, don't know why it's needed though, personal choice I guess. Redsn0w has an 'allow boot animation' option, again personal choice, not sure if SB does that, I've never used it truth be known as I don't use Windoze.

As for your baseband, well it's a pretty pointless discussion at the moment, nothing is gonna change it as it's the baseband for 4.3.2 and is not unlockable via ultrasn0w, if you're factory unlocked then you can disregard any baseband talk anyway as it will have zero impact on you.

The main differences between the JB tools are the ones in my 1st answer, restore or no restore.

Redsn0w will jailbreak your iphone as is, so all data/media will stay intact, if running Win 7/vista then Redsn0w needs to be run as admin and in XP compatibility mode.

Sn0wbreeze will involve building a custom ipsw and then shift/restoring to that, this will wipe your idevice of all data/media, so you'll need to restore the data from a back-up

Thank you "venusanann" very much for your clear response.

But my question Is there a difference between them? According to what I read the Sn0wbreezewill active multitasking gestures, and may have had other differences?

More importantly, it will not change my BaseBand!!!

using sn0wbreeze with your case makes no sense. you're already 4.3.2, so better use redsn0w 0.9.6 rc14 note that your iphone's baseband won't change with redsn0w as you already restored to 4.3.2 and you can enable multitouch gestures later too.

Thanks all for the advice, this is what I need to know.

Yes my device is factory unlocked, I think Redsn0w better than Sn0wbreeze for my status.
