    iOS 4.3 CUSTOM ipsw to Jailbreak and Unlock iOS 4.3 (Tetherd jailbreak)

    How to Jailbreak and Unlock iOS 4.3 (Tetherd mode !! )
    (custom ipsw will not change your iDevice baseband !!)
    READ STEPS below for a successfull Jailbreak !!!

    ULTRASN0W now works and it can now Unlock the following basebands : (01.59.00 / 04.26.08 / 05.11.07 / 05.12.01 / 05.13.04 / 06.15.00)
    Sn0wbreeze 2.3 Beta 4 For iOS 4.3: Brings Multitouch Gestures; Includes Fix For MobileSubstrate, iBooty Issues.
    Sn0wbreeze 2.3 beta 4 supports only a tethered jailbreak currently so users will have to use iBooty to boot into jailbroken state (which is installed on your desktop after running Sn0wbreeze 2.3) if they need to reboot their iOS device.iH8sn0w has released a new version of Sn0wbreeze (v2.3b3), which includes fix for MobileSubstrate, iBooty, sleep bug and allows users to enable Multitouch gestures that is currently available only to developers of iOS developer program.iH8sn0w had released Sn0wbreeze to jailbreak iOS 4.3, the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows last weekend.Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom iOS 4.3 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 4.3. In case of iPhone, it also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w using the “Baseband Preservation Mode” (useful for iPhone 4 users on baseband 01.59.00 or earlier and iPhone 3G/iPhone 3GS users on baseband 05.13.04 or earlier).
    Sn0wbreeze 2.3 beta 4 fixes the following issues:
    ULTRASN0W now works and it can now Unlock the following basebands : (01.59.00 / 04.26.08 / 05.11.07 / 05.12.01 / 05.13.04 / 06.15.00)
    Adds Multitasking Gestures option in Settings App.
    iBooty bug fixes (Includes iBSS issues).
    iBooty is EVEN faster.
    MobileSubstrate is now working.
    Sleep bug in iPod Touches is fixed.
    Rare iPad 1G issues resolved.
    Added iREB to top bar for future re-runs within sn0wbreeze.

    How to Upgrade and use tether mode to jailbreak iOS 4.3 read all the steps below !!
    Step 1: Go to DFU mode use iReb to enter DFU mode.
    Start iTunes and press and hold Left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in iTunes and then release this button.This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your custom firmware 4.3 file. Select the required custom .ipsw file that you have downloaded.

    Step 2: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. After the installation is done, your iOS device will be jailbroken on iOS 4.3. WAIT ! cydia will only work after using tetherd mode so next step is :

    Booting in Tethered Mode
    since there is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3 yet, we will have to boot it into a tethered jailbroken state. To do this, we will make use of a utility on Windows named “iBooty” as shown in the steps below. This is included with all custom ipsw that u have downloaded. Turn off your iDevice
    Step 3: Run iBooty for Windows and select your iOS device from the dropdown menu.

    Step 4: Now hit the “Start” button and follow the instructions on screen to enter your device in DFU mode:

    Follow the instruction on iBooty to get to DFU mode !
    • You device should now be in DFU mode
    Step 5: Once you are into DFU mode, iBooty will do its thing and after a short while, your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be booted in a jailbroken tethered mode !
    Step 6: Enjoy your jailbroken iDevice !!
    Step 7 : Open Cydia and install UltraSn0w to Unlock your iDevice !!


    How to know if iPhone 3GS is New BootRom or OLD boot ROM :
    Download iDetector (included in this zip file) and then unzip and double click iDetector.exe after that put the iPhone 3GS in DFU mode and then click the Is myBootrom Old or New?


    on Mac OS X
    Step 1: Put your iPhone into DFU Mode (not recovery mode)
    Connect your iPhone to your computer.
    Turn iPhone off.
    Start iTunes.
    Hold Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds or so.
    Release Power button but keep holding the Home button until your computer recognizes a new USB device.
    iTunes will now recognize your iPhone.
    Note: Your iPhone screen at this time should be blank (black in color), if not, then you are most likely in Recovery Mode, not DFU mode.
    Step 2: Run "System Profiler" and navigate to: Hardware -> USB (menu on left).
    Step 3: At the top right under “USB Device Tree” panel click “Apple Mobile Device (DFU Mode)”.
    Step 4: Now down under in “Serial Number”, simply go through the string and you’ll find the bootrom version (iBoot) as shown in the screenshots below:
    iPhone 3GS – Old Bootrom 359.3


    Step 5: If it’s 359.3, you have old bootrom. If it’s 359.3.2 or anything above that, its a new bootrom.
    Note: In both the cases above, it doesn’t matter whether your iPhone is an MB model or an MC model. As long as it has 359.3 bootrom, it is iPhone 3GS with old bootrom, and if 359.3.2 or above then it is iPhone 3GS with new bootrom.

    remember : its tetherd jailbreak meaning everytime u boot you must use iBooty (included in every zip file u downloaded) its unique for every device so if you have iPhone 3GS new bootrom then iBooty for 3GS will only work ! for that device thats why i have included in every file you download the iBooty also.

    so when booting put the device to DFU mode and start iBooty and then when restarted you can use cydia !!
