    I have a friend who has an ipad 1 on 4.3.1. They wanted a JB so i used redsnow and from everything out there it was an untethered JB.

    I downloaded the latest version of redsnow and iOS version of 4.3.3...went through the whole JB process...everything seemed to work, cydia and all...but when i go through the setting app and under about section it still shows version 4.3.1 when i used 4.3.3...has anyone encountered this before?

    any help appreciated thanks.

    if this is against forum rules, my apologies.

    Obviuosly redsn0w didnt upgrade/update your ipad firmware.

    When yuou use redsn0w to point to ios it only to identified the firmware on ipad so it will prepare the userland jb on the idevice. Luckily 4.3.1 to 4.3.3 uses the same procedure thats why it works

    There's no problem. You simply did not point redsn0w at the 4.3.3 ipsw file. So, if your friend wanted to be running 4.3.3, you need to upgrade and re-jailbreak.
