Jailbreak 4.3.1 Untethered Problems: PwnageTool, RedSn0w & Sn0wBreeze

The new untethering jailbreak 4.3.1 for the iPhone is now live and it can be used with PwnageTool, RedSn0w and Sn0wBreeze and this is where we call out to all readers and ask if you have encountered any problems at all.

This new jailbreak will NOT work on the Apple iPad 2 but we are here at this given time for iPhone owners only, the new untethered jailbreak has just been released by the Dev team and Phones review colleague Lawrence reported a little about this earlier today.

There are two versions of the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak and to use this you can use PwnageTool, RedSn0w or Sn0wBreeze, we have linked this names so that you can see the ‘How To Tutorial’, hope this helps you a little.

We have kept this article short and sweet because all we want is for those who have tried the Jailbreak 4.3.1 untethered goodness.

    I'm running 4.3 on an iPhone 4, and, while it looks to work fine, my Cydia isn't functional. I'll try jailbreaking it again and I'll update whether or not it's successful.

  2. Bradley Reed says:

    I jailbroke but it ended up being tethered. Well, if I boot untethered it ends up making Mobile Safari and Cydia non functional. And all my jailbroken apps.

  3. Ok, now this is going to help a lot of people. (and I suggest an article is made relating to this) When jailbreaking using redsn0w 0.9.6rc9, if you get a WHITE Cydia icon that closes automatically, you have to open redsn0w again and click 'Just boot tethered right now' and cydia will load. Afterward, open it up /again/ and check 'Install Cydia' to untether your device.

      hi Weebowll,

      I'm wondering whether the apps downloaded from Install0us work well or not in your iphone after the 4.3.1 jailbreak using Redsn0w since a lot of apps downloaded from Install0us or from Cydia don't work for my iDevice. I failed to install them. Is this normal ? Or is that case that the jailbreak is too new to the apps in Cydia so that the more updated version is to be released soon.

      I'm not sure about this the question above. could you help me to answer the Q above , thank you. (email: pakshingkwan@gmail.com)

    Everything worked for me but Cydia was white until I reloaded data and did a couple of reboots. I installed MyWi after that but noticed a significant decrease in speeds. Not sure if it is a flaw in the jailbreak or MyWi itself. Awaiting to hear back from Intelliborn on that one.

    Ran redsn0w on mine; was stuck at Apple logo screen until (while hooked up to computer) held down both power and home for ~20 seconds. Now in restore mode; got error 1604 in iTunes while trying to restore. I’m now trying different options.

  6. fred says:

    My redsn0w.exe crashes when my 3GS is on the picture of a hdd with a green arrow saying 'Downloading Jailbreak data…' 🙁 not good…..

    1. Mario800123 says:

      I untethered my 3GS this morning and it crashed a few times.
      Don't worry, just keep trying and it should work eventually. If the picture is still on your 3GS right now, just put it in DFU when you're asked to, don't worry about turning it off.

  7. Non says:

    1 bar on GSM signal, which doesn't seem to reflect the call quality/reception. Also looks like infinidock doesn't work. Aside from that the usual suspects seem pretty solid (winterboard, sbsettings). Anyone know a central repository for tracking issues?

  8. Opspin says:

    Everything but cydia works for me, when I try to open cydia, after a while a weird flickering starts to happen, while the Apple logo sits in the front of the screen and looks like it's rebooting or something.

    Installed today on iPhone 4 and iPad 1using PwnageTool windows version works a treat, had a problem with 1013 error when installing on iPhone, easily sorted though.

  10. BMan says:

    iPhone 4. 4.1–>4.3.1 using PwnageTool so as to maintain 1.59 baseband. Had itunes errors initially because it seems I entered recovery mode the wrong way. Eventually succeeded with update. Wifi sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Haven't tried resetting my router because I dont care. I've had regular crashing during calls. Sometimes the crashing is simply a springboard reset where Apple icon appears and call returns after a few seconds (bizarre), and sometime phone completely resets in middle of call. I don't know if this is caused by an app? Also no functionality launching calls from lockinfo.

    Also, I had the 1 signal bar issue when in a 4 bar zone. I uninstalled ultrasn0w, and still only have max of 1 bar. I'm hoping now that the uninstall of ultrasn0w will resolve the crashing.

    I figure things will get resolved as jb apps are updated.

    the untethered jailbreak for 4.3.1 on my iphone4 works perfectly! i appreciate everyone who puts work into this THANK YOU!….just to let others know, i kept getting errors from itunes when i tried to load the custom firmware. so i used another computer and it worked just fine. dont know why…but try another computer….now waiting patiently for unlock for 4.3.1

  12. pain in ass says:

    Same as everyone… 4.3.1 JB with white/crashing Cydia on old-bootrom 3GS via redsn0w 0.9.6 rc9

    Be patient folks, they're sure to release rc10 within the next 24-48 hrs.

    Re-JB or Tethered booting WILL NOT fix everyones issue.

    Disappointing for a RC but they do admit to using the term loosely.

  13. Sili says:

    I have a factory unlocked 3gs, i jailbreaked with redsnow, running smoothly no issues, only a few of cydia tweaks not working e.g multicon mover, screen dimmer etc, not much issue as they'll be updated soon.

  14. joe says:

    Jailbroke my Iphone 3Gs with 4.3.1, using redsn0w 0.9.6 rc9 and had no issues so far. It's untethered and have had no issues with Cydia or winterboard.

    Hi Apple users,

    I have an iPhone 4. It was running iOS 4.2.1 and was jailbroken with Green Poision. I updated the phone to iOS 4.3.1 and used redsn0w and it worked out fine. There were a couple minor issues though. I had a white Cydia icon but then Cydia was working fine and also an Apple logo appeared when I had Cydia opened for the first time and it started loading something but I just let it go till it was done. After that I just went ahead and downloaded Installous 4 and after that was installed the Cydia icon appeared and was no longer white anymore. I tested everything and it all works. 🙂

    After i jailbroke my iphone 4 i can't make any phone calls!!! I get NO SERVICE all the time! Tryed whit several sim cards, it is the same! HELP ANYONE!!

  17. Rich says:

    Make sure you update your firmware in itunes first, just spent an hour trying to figure out why cydia wouldnt open and just read somewhere else that if you just try to jailbreak it with out actually updating your firmware, it will act as if it jailbroke it, but will not function properly, will update as soon as its done to verify.

  18. I used Redsn0w with 2 iPhone 4's and everything seems fine although 3g connections are somewhat unstable. Initialy i got an iTunes error while updating but i ignored it and in the end i was on FW 4.3.1 anyway. I had version 4.2.1 jailbroken with greenpois0n which may have caused the error on iTunes updating process even though, as i said, the iPhone updated anyway.
    I am not an ultrasn0w unlocker so the unstability on 3g is not caused by that.
    My conclusion is that the jailbreak is usable but there might be space for some evolution.

    I update my iphone 4 from 4.1 jailbreak(limerain) to 4.3.1 using redsnow the only problem I had was the 1 bar issue but I did no realise that I add kept my baseband 2.someting… So I restored it with the new baseband and now its flawless, no problem what so ever Thanks for the GREAT JAILBREAK good jobs guys….

  20. I used redsnow 0.9.6, it ran smoothly; and on first try I got it done.
    I'm using a third generation iPod, and it is still working very good.
    Although I did the DFU mode thing, before the window to do the process appeared.
    I don't know if there is a difference.

    mail if you have any questions

    1. Bonnie says:

      When you say restore 431 using only DFU mode are you talking about jailbreak 431 or apple 431 firmware update? I did have success with the jailbreak, but cant' make phone calls without crashing and going into safe mode. Happens with every phone call. Crash reporter is finding nothing
