These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad 1 on the 4.3.5 firmware using RedSn0w for Windows. The Mac version of this tutorial is here. If you are on 4.3.3 or lower make sure you do NOT update to iOS 4.3.5. Use the untethered JailbreakMe instead. You can find the appropriate JailbreakMe tutorial here.

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the latest 4.3.5 firmware from below and place it in the same folder.


4.3.5 (iPad 1): iPad1,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw

Extract the RedSn0w zip file into the same folder.

Step Three
Once iTunes has finished updating your iPad to the desired firmware open the Pwnage folder on your desktop and launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we extracted earlier.

**Windows 7 need to run RedSn0w as an Administrator in Vista Compatibility mode. You can do this by right clicking the executable and selecting Properties from the contextual menu.

BOOT TETHERED
Since this is a tethered jailbreak you must use Redsn0w to help you boot back into your jailbroken device if its powered off for any reason. Simply connect your iPhone to the computer, launch RedSn0w, select Just boot tethered right now from the options window and click Next to have RedSn0w boot your device.

*As usual a big thanks to the iPhone Dev-Team for their hard work and contribution to the iPhone community.
**Windows 7 users can try running RedSn0w as an administrator in Windows Vista or XP compatibility mode if you experience any difficulties.

Sorry to sound a bit thick, but could you elaborate? If I'm at 4.3.3 and want to go to 4.3.5, where does 4.3.4 come in? Do I go to that first, then do 4.3.5?

The tutorial says not to use RedSn0w if you're at 4.3.3 or below. I'm jailbroken and used RedSn0w to get to 4.3.3. Now I want to upgrade to 4.3.5. Did I interpret the tutorial correctly and can't (or shouldn't) use RedSn0w to upgrade now? What would happen if I did use the program...? And, since I have a 3G model, does JailbreakMe update the baseband?

When jail breaking doing the method as described on here the iPad went through the jailbreak method like usual with any iPhone or anything but when finished there was no Cydia application only a white application box that didn't open up at all and also knocked out the safari browser. What would be a resolution or action to resolve this.?
