Jailbreak your iPad with FirmWare 4.3.3

July 1, 2011  |  How To Jailbreak iPad, iPad Tweaks  |  Share

For the past months, Apple has gone through a lot of versions in their iOS 4. Not until they had settled to the last one, FirmWare 4.3.3. This is because they are planning to launch their upcoming iOS 5 later this year. I have tried jailbreaking iPod and iPhone with FW 4.3.3 but not with iPad.

A friend of mine allowed me to use his iPad for testing how to jailbreak it. The procedure for jailbreaking an iPad is quite similar in jailbreaking an iPhone 4. Thanks to the Dev Team for their great work in developing the redsn0w 0.9.6rc 15, the tool I used to jailbreak my iPhone 4 that will also work for iPad. Redsn0w will work for both Mac and Windows for Apple devices running 4.3.3 EXCEPT for iPad2.

The Following procedure should be followed carefully. Note: Always update your iTunes to the latest version. Make sure that your device is in 4.3.3 firmware. If not, update first through iTunes to achieve iOS 4.3.3.

1.       Download RedSn0w 0.9.6rc15 and iOS 4.3.3 and save it in a folder easy for you to find (or in the desktop).

2.       Unzip RedSnow and launch .exe file. Browse for the firmware you had just downloaded.

3.       RedSn0w will prepare to jailbreak your iPad. Wait for a few seconds. By default, Cydia is checked but you can add other stuff you want to include.

4.       Turn off your iPad and make sure it is connected to the computer. To continue, click “Next”.

5.       Follow the onscreen instructions to get your iPad in DFU mode. You will have to press the Home and Power buttons in this procedure. Make sure to follow.

6.       If you had successfully turned your iPad in DFU mode, RedSn0w will now start to inject the jailbreak process in your iPad. Wait for RedSnow to do the job and it should be done in a couple of minutes.

7.       Your iPad will reboot once the process is completed. Cydia icon will now be present in your iPhone.

Congratulations on your newly jailbroken iPad with FirmWare version 4.3.3!
