These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad 3 on the 5.1.1 firmware using RedSn0w for Mac. The Windows version of this tutorial is here.

Once on iOS 5.1.1 you should save your SHSH Blobs by following this tutorial.

If you want to jailbreak a lower firmware version you can find the appropriate tutorial here.

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download the latest version of RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the 5.1.1 firmware from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. (Note: you do not need to download the 5.1.1 firmware if you are already on iOS 5.1.1)

Extract the RedSn0w zip file by double clicking it.


Step Two: (You can skip this step if iOS 5.1.1 is already installed on your device)
Connect your iPad to the computer and launch iTunes.


Select your iPad from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down Option and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPad.


Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the 5.1.1 firmware ipsw. Click the Choose button to continue.


iTunes will now update your iPad to the new firmware.

Step Three
Launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we extracted earlier.


Step Four
Once RedSn0w opens click the Jailbreak button.


Step Five
The Rocky Racoon jailbreak will now go through three steps to complete.

Step Six
Once this is complete you will be notified that RedSn0w is done. When your iPad finishes rebooting (5 minutes or so) it will be jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard.
