How to Jailbreak Your iPad 1 Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.3.5]

/ On : 6:40 AM/ Thank you for visiting my small blog here. If you wanted to discuss or have the question around this article, please contact me e-mail at Gps_86@gmail.com.
These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad 1 on the 4.3.5 firmware using RedSn0w for Windows. The Mac version of this tutorial is here. If you are on 4.3.3 or lower make sure you do NOT update to iOS 4.3.5. Use the untethered JailbreakMe instead. You can find the appropriate JailbreakMe tutorial here.



Step One

Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage



Download RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 firmware from below and place it in the same folder.



4.3.4 (iPad 1): iPad1,1_4.3.4_8K2_Restore.ipsw

4.3.5 (iPad 1): iPad1,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw



Extract the RedSn0w zip file into the same folder.





Step Two

Connect your iPad to the computer and launch iTunes.





Select your iPad from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down Shift and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPad.





Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the 4.3.5 firmware ipsw. Click the Choose button to continue.





Step Three

Once iTunes has finished updating your iPad to the desired firmware open the Pwnage folder on your desktop and launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we extracted earlier.



**Windows 7 users may need to run RedSn0w in Vista Compatibility mode. You can do this by right clicking the executable and selecting Properties from the contextual menu.





Step Four

Once RedSn0w opens click the Browse button





Step Five

Select the 4.3.5 firmware ipsw we placed in the Pwnage folder on our desktop then click Open.





Step Six

Once the firmware has been verified click the Next button to continue.





Step Seven

RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data





Step Eight

From this window you can select the jailbreak options you would like. Make sure Cydia is selected and click the Next button to continue.





Step Nine

Please plug your iPad into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button





Step Ten

RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode here





Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.





Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.





Step Eleven

Your iPad will now reboot





Step Twelve

RedSn0w will then begin uploading the new RAM Disk and Kernel.





Step Thirteen

Once this is complete you will be notified that RedSn0w is done. Click the Finish button. When your iPad finishes rebooting (5 minutes or so) it will be jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard.







BOOT TETHERED

Since this is a tethered jailbreak you must use Redsn0w to help you boot back into your jailbroken device if its powered off for any reason. Simply connect your iPhone to the computer, launch RedSn0w, select Just boot tethered right now from the options window and click Next to have RedSn0w boot your device.





*As usual a big thanks to the iPhone Dev-Team for their hard work and contribution to the iPhone community.

**Windows 7 users can try running RedSn0w as an administrator in Windows Vista or XP compatibility mode if you experience any difficulties.
