    Finally a tethered for Jailbreak 4.3 iOS is now possible. Apple iOS 4.3 is publicly available for iPhone4, iPhone3Gs , iPod touch 3G/4G, iPad and Apple TV 2G. Jailbreak (tethered) for iOS 4.3 is done by PwnageTool Bundles using Custom Firmware. This procedure involves creating custom firmware and loading it on the device.

    Build iOS 4.3 Custom Firmware with PwnageTool 4.2

    Step 6:
    Run PwnageTool, select “Expert mode” and choose your device and click on Next Arrow button.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-a.jpg

    Step 7:
    Browse and select iOS 4.3 IPSW file as shown in the screenshot

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-b.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-c.jpg

    Step 8:
    Select “Build” and click on Next Arrow.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-e.jpg

    Step 9:
    PwnageTool will ask for the location to save the Custom Firmware File. Select the location and click on “Save”

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-f.jpg

    Step 10:
    PwnageTool will now create the custom .IPSW file. Wait for the process to finish.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-g.jpg

    Step 11: Connect your device with Mac and follow the onscreen instructions to put your Device in DFU mode

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-h.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-i.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-j.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-6-k.jpg

    Step 12:
    After you have successfully entered in DFU Mode, start iTunes. It will detect your device in recovery mode.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-7-a.jpg

    We need to restore it manually by holding left “Alt” (option) button on Mac and click on “Restore” in iTunes.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-7-b.jpg

    This will open file browser to select the iOS file. Select the Custom IPSW file created by PwnageTool and click on “Open”
    Sit back and wait, iTunes will install the firmware. Do not plug out or shutdown your Mac. Your iOS device screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, your iOS device will be jailbroken on iOS 4.3.
    Tethered Boot iOS 4.3

    Currently there is no untethered Jailbreak available for iOS 4.3. You need to boot your device in tethered using “tetheredboot” utility.
    Step 13:
    First you need to create a Folder on Desktop/iOS 4.3/tetheredboot and make a copy of Custom IPSW file there.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8a.jpg

    Step 14:
    Now change the extension of Custom IPSW file from .ipsw to .zip.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8b.jpg

    Step 15:
    Double click .zip file to extract the firmware file in iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Custom_Restore folder.

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8c.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8d.jpg

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8e.jpg

    Step 16
    We need to copy two files in tetheredboot folder from just extracted Custom Firmware Folder. Navigate to iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Custom_Restore, Copy kernelcache.release.n90 and Paste it in tetheredboot folder.
    Step 17:
    Navigate to iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Custom_Restore/Firmware/dfu/ and Copy iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu and Paste it in tetheredboot folder.
    Also download tetheredboot.zip and extract it in the tetheredboot folder.
    The tetheredboot folder will look something like this now (screenshot below)

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8f.jpg

    Step 18
    Power off your device, but keep it connected with the Mac. Start Terminal on your Mac and run the following commands

    http://www.newsden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/step-8g.jpg

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

    Wait for your device to boot, Terminal will show “Exiting libpois0n“.
    After a short while, your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be booted in a jailbroken tethered mode !
    Remember if you power off or restart your device again, you will have to do the whole jailbreak process from Step 1. So becareful and do not restart your device without any reason.
    Enjoy iOS 4.3 Jailbreak!

    Er, ah...think I'll wait a bit for an (almost certainly simpler) untethered JB. Using 4.1 ain't so bad as going thru all the above...:eek:
