My 4.3.2 Jailbreak experience


This was not my 1st time to jailbreak my iphone but it was the first time

on Window 7 64bit and I almost got my phone lock up in (recovery mode). later I will discuss about how to I resurrect my phone back alive..Smile 

Before we do anything we must have backup , and itune is the only way and help me to recover back what I have save b4.

I will recommend 2 uRL from redmondpie to Jb my iphone to 4.3.2 , although they was other around but I found his instruction and link is much more updated.

1) Step by step instruction

2) Video tutorial

Let’s talk about what happen during my upgrade using itune (10.2.2)

During the upgrade it suddenly come out with error message 1103 and it look like the phone is in recovery mode (DFU)

at first I try to Hold home + power button for more than 10 seconds to force it to reboot release power button and continue to hold home button for 10 seconds to go into DFU mode but still it did’t work.

and lucky I’m online with another Guru and she mange to find a instruction for as below

Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad
Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
Step 5. In “files of type:” select all documents
Step 6. Open “hosts”
Step 7. Delete all line that has “” or something like that
Step 8. Hit Save
Step 9. Restore your device

and I try it and it work for me…greats.

after the upgrade , then it is time to jailbreak the phone I kick start Redsn0w and again it hang on upload ramdisk I wait for around 10 minute till nothing was changes , again google around and found out that on Window 7 there was additional step which I need to take ,so I break the process by kill it .

If you are using Windows 7, right click redsn0w and goto properties. Check the Compatibility mode to work in Windows XP.

5. Then start Redsn0w by right clicking redsn0w.exe and Run as Administrator.


Finally everything was working fine , and lucky because the next day firmware 4.3.3. was out in market..Smile
