iPhone 4.3.1 pwnageTool Instructions

Few days ago, Apple released iOS 4.3.1 for the iPhone and today, the dev team has churned out pwnagetool 4.3 bringing untethered jailbreak to the iPhone. Follow these steps to do a untethered 4.3.1 jailbreak on your iPhone:


First, you will have to download pwnagetool 4.3 (link given at the bottom of the post) on your computer. Pwnagetool is only available for Mac so if you are a windows user, you should follow our iPhone 4.3.1 Redsnow jailbreak guide. Then download iPhone iOS 4.3.1 firmware and move files to your desktop. Start the pwnagetool. Then, click on “Expert Mode”.


Click on “Browse for IPSW” and browse for the iOS 4.3.1 file you downloaded earlier. Click on “Build” to begin the creation of custom firmware. This will create IPSW file for your iPhone.

Now, we will have to enter the DFU mode. So, to do that, follow these instructions:

* Hold Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds
* Now release the Power button but continue holding the Home button for 10 more seconds
* You iPhone should now be in DFU mode

Now, start iTunes. Click on your iPhone’s name on the left side of sidebar of iTunes. Hold the option button  and click on the “Restore” button. Then browse the custom IPSW file you created using PwnageTool.

This will flash the untethered IPSW file to the iPhone. That is it. Enjoy your untethered iPhone running iOS 4.3.1.
