iPad 4.3.4 Mac Jailbreak

It is now possible to jailbreak the original iPad using the pwnage tool bundle, an app available to the Mac users. Keep in mind that the iPad 2 support is still on the way, but we do not recommend iPad 2 owners trying this method. Also, this jailbreak is tethered in nature which means you will have to jailbreak it everytime you do a soft reset. Ready? Follow these steps very carefully

iPad 4.3.4 Mac Jailbreak

As we have already mentioned, iPad 2 jailbreak is on the way but if you are still on iOS 4.3.3, feel free to follow our iPad 2 4.3.3 jailbreak instruction guide.

First download the pwnage tool bundle from the link given at the bottom of this post. Unzip it and open it. Drag the file “iPad1,1_4.3.4_8K2.bundle” to the desktop. Then download pwnage tool 4.3.3 and install it to the /applications directory. Right click on it and select “show package contents”.

Fire up finder on your Mac and navigate to “Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/”. Paste the “iPad1,1_4.3.4_8K2.bundle” we mentioned in the previous step. Now download iPad 4.3.4 and save the IPSW file to your desktop. Start the pwnage tool in expert mode and select iPad from the images.

Now browse for the IPSW file that you moved to the desktop. Click on open and then select build. This will create a pre-jailbroken IPSW firmware for your iPad.

Now, you will be asked to make your iPad enter DFU mode. To do that:

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

Start iTunes now and select iPad from the left sidebar. Press down the “alt” key and click “restore”. Now browse for the jailbroken iPSW file created in the previous step (by pwnagetool). iTunes will now flash this pre-jailbroken firmware to your iPad.

Wait, we are not done yet. Since this is tethered boot, we will have to use Tetherboot. Download tetheredboot for iPad and extract it. We need two files for custom 4.3.2 IPSW firmware. These files are kernelcache.release.k48 and iBSS.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu. We will make a copy of the custom IPSW file we created earlier and change its extension from IPSW to .zip. Extract this file then. Copy kernelcache.release.k48 and iBSS.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu files under /Firmware/dfu/ . Move all of these files along with the tetheredboot utility to a new folder called “tetheredboot” on the desktop.

Then, turn off the iPad and start the terminal app on your Mac. Type in these commands:

sudo -s

Enter your password. Enter these (replace “jazz” by your username) and press enter.

/Users/jazz/Downloads/tetheredboot/tetheredboot
/Users/jazz/Downloads/tetheredboot/iBSS.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu
/Users/jazz/Downloads/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.k48

You will asked to enter DFU mode. For this:

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

Wait for few seconds for your iPad to boot. Terminal will now showing “Exiting libpois0n”. After sometime, your iPad will boot in to jailbreak state.
