The above step will make iTunes prompt you to select the location of the current iOS 4.3.2 firmware. Just select the required custom .ipsw file that you created above and then click on “Open”.

Step – 11 : Well, now, just sit back and enjoy, since iTunes will do the rest for you, which will involve a series of automated steps. Hence, just keep patience, and don’t do anything silly. Simply wait while iTunes installs the new iOS 4.3.2 firmware on your iOS device. Once, the installation is completed, your iOS device will be jailbroken on new iOS 4.3.2

Booting In Tethered Mode

Lastly, as there is no untethered iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak yet, hence, we’ll have to boot it into a tethered jailbroken state. Hence, in order to do this, we’ll use a utility called “tetheredboot” as shown in the steps below;

Step – 12 : First, download the tetheredboot.zip utility for Mac OS X and extract the .zip file.

Step – 13 : Now, we have two files from the custom iOS 4.3.2 firmware file, namely, kernelcache.release.n90 and iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu. In order to do this, make a copy of your custom iOS 4.3.2 file that you created above, change the extension of this file from .ipsw to .zip and then extract this .zip file.

After that, copy kernelcache.release.n90 file, and then copy iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu files that are under /Firmware/dfu/.

Now, move all these files, and tetheredboot utility to a new folder named “tetheredboot” on the desktop as shown in the image below.

Step – 14 : Now, turn off your iOS device and start “Terminal” on OS X and run the following commands;

sudo -s

and then, enter your administrator password;

/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n90

Obviously, you should not write “Taimur Asad” and change it with the name of your computer directory.

After that, press “Enter”.

NOTE : If the above fails, then, try ‘tetheredboot -i ibss -k kernel’ instead of ‘tetheredboot ibss kernel’:

/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot –i
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu -k
/Users/TaimurAsad/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n90

TIP : Just drag and drop in Terminal — tetheredboot file, then iBSS file and after that kernelcache.release file.

Now, you should see some code running in the “Terminal” window, and at the same point, it will ask you to enter into DFU Mode. hence, follow the steps below to enter your iOS device into DFU Mode;

  • First, hold “Power” and “Home” buttons for 10 seconds.
  • Now, release the “power” button, but continue holding the “Home” button for 10 more seconds.
  • Finally, now, your iOS device should be in DFU Mode.

Then, wait for your device to boot, at this point, Terminal will be showing “Exiting libpois0n” message and after a short while, your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will be booted on a jailbroken tethered mode.
