    How to do jailbreak iPhone 4

    Advertisement



    I am interested in jailbreaking my iPhone 4.

    However, I am new to Apple devices and haven't the slightest clue as to how to do it.

    Is there a chance it will ruin my phone?
    Will I be able to restore it if I decide to?

    I've searched the forums and none of it makes sense to me.

    iPhone 4
    Version 4.3.3 (8J2)
    AT&T
    Firmware 04.10.01

    Can anybody guide me through this or help?

    Is there a chance it will ruin my phone? A: NEGATIVE!!!!
    Will I be able to restore it if I decide to? A: AFFIRMATIVE!!!! You can jailbreak it play around with it and if you feel that the freedom of your phone is too much for you to handle and have full control over your device for customization plus millions of perks then by all means you will be able to restore it back to factory status and return it or sell it whichever you decide to do.

    I've searched the forums and none of it makes sense to me.

    Version 4.3.3 (8J2) "If you’re already jailbroken at 4.3.3 (by either redsn0w or custom IPSW), you can install this fix simply by running redsn0w rc16 over your existing jailbreak. Just uncheck the “Install Cydia” option and check any other options you want. The fix will be installed no matter what you’ve selected. This is safe for even ultrasn0w unlockers to do (because redsn0w itself won’t update your baseband…only an iTunes stock IPSW update/restore will do that)."

    Well I can understand your frustration. Firstly, there are certain software programs that jailbreak an iPhone (or any other Apple device). These include but are not limited to Greenpois0n, Redsn0w, Pwange, Limera1n, etc. These can all be downloaded. If you Google them, you will see links for downloading the software and step-by-step instructions of how to use them.

    Custom IPSW is something redsn0w will install to your phone 4.3.3 to allow it to be jailbroken. This will happen once you follow the instructions. Your baseband sometimes can change when you jailbreak a device, however, redsn0w will prevent this from happening.

    Once you jailbreak your phone, you will be able to add an app called Cydia. Cydia is the gateway to doing all the cool things once you've jailbroken your device.

    Ultrasn0w is something you can install on your phone to allow it to be unlocked. It will only work with certain basebands though. If you rely on an unlock, you should do some research before you do anything to your phone because certain basebands will prevent ultrasn0w from unlocking your phone. If you don't rely on an unlock (and you doubt you ever will need one), then you have nothing to worry about.

    Hope this helps! Keep posting and let us know how it goes.

    1st- Sync your iPhone just in case.

    RedSn0w

    Download RedSn0w

    4.3.3 Download

    Download 4.3.3 and put it somewhere very easy to get to. I have a folder on my desktop named Jailbreak;I keep all my files in it.

    Once you've downloaded both. Install RedSn0w from your downloads and follow the directions. Don't worry if it doesn't go as planned the first time. Just start over. Hope this helps, if you have any questions post or send me a PM.

    Here's a HowTo if you need a guide to look at. It's for a Mac but it's essentially the same.

    Hope this helps.

    So, once you're jail broken, let me know what kind of mods you're looking for. Notifications,lock screen stuff and so on.

    Two gripes so far.....the dreaded service issue depending on how you hold the phone and can barely hear a caller during a phone call.
