This is step-by-step instructions on how to perform tethered jailbreak of your iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.5 firmware using RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b for Windows.
Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run redsn0w.
If you have other device, here are links to our RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak tutorials:

iH8Sn0w released Sn0wBreeze 2.8b6, which adds support for the latest iOS 5 beta 6 firmware.
Sn0wBreeze is a quite useful jailbreak utility. It creates custom firmware and allows users to preserve baseband for unlock. This new version also adds hacktivation and removes UDID developer check. This means that you can try iOS 5 without developer account from Apple.
You can download Sn0wBreeze 2.8b6 for Windows here.
The iPhone Dev-Team released RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 that supports tethered jailbreak for the most recent iOS 5 beta 6:
We've released redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbreak iOS5 beta6 (point it directly at the beta6 IPSW).
Two important notes about this version:
(1) Please let your device boot normally to IOS5b6 and do a clean shutdown (slide to power off) before jailbreaking.
(2) Boot logos have intentionally been disabled for now, so you'll see a black screen on tethered boots (you can re-enable logos or verbose boot with command-line options if you really want them back).
Due increased sensitivity to abrupt filesystem shutdowns in IOS5b6, it's very important that you do a clean shutdown before running redsn0w.
RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 supports tethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 1.

Research firm NPD has recently announced results of its Mobile Phone Track report for the second quarter of 2011. Android is still leading the U.S. smartphone with 52% of the market; Apple's iPhone has 29% while BlackBerry devices only 11% of the market. But the 14-month-old iPhone 4 is continuing to lead the market in sales, and the 8 GB 26-month-old iPhone 3GS takes the second place, perhaps, because its that price now dropped to $49.
Here are the top five best-selling phones during Q2, via NPD’s Mobile Phone Track service:
- Apple iPhone 4
- Apple iPhone 3GS
- HTC EVO 4G
- HTC Inspire 4G
- Samsung INTENSITYII

Early last week there appeared some rumors that Apple has been testing a 4G LTE-enabled iPhone with carriers. In an "internal iOS test build" was found a property list file (.plist) for LTE. This might mean that Apple was already testing LTE hardware. This LTE.plist file, however, was found only in some of the builds (GSM iPhone 4, CDMA iPad 2) and it was related to Apple's internal "Fieldtest" application.
LTE is the term the next generation wireless broadband network that is currently being deployed by both Verizon and AT&T. Data speeds for LTE should be significantly faster than the iPhone's existing 3G network.
Other rumors suggest that it is unlikely that Apple will make the jump to LTE so early with the iPhone 5, because, as Apple's Tim Cook said, the first generation of LTE chipsets forced a lot of design compromises, and Apple was unwilling to make those compromises. Such compromises could include very short battery life for mobile phones. But, as far as we know, AT&T had installed 4G LTE equipment in a major Apple retail store and Apple had put out a job listing for field test engineers with expertise in LTE.
Earlier it was reported that Delta Air Lines has tested iPads to facilitate communications with flight crews. Now, iPads are tested in cabin crews of British Airways to improve customer service aboard.
The company states that the iPad can help to identify the Executive Club status of their customers, what preferences in meal they have, their previous travel arrangements. With iPads, the cabin crew can quickly get access to a lot of necessary information such as timetables, customer service updates and safety manuals.
At present, after all passengers have boarded, cabin crew are handed a long paper containing information about up to 337 customers. Using iPads, cabin crew can just update information on the screen through 3G networks and get all the necessary data about passengers on board.
The iPad is currently tested with 100 cabin crew and British Airways plans to roll out the program to all senior crew members in the coming months.
Samsung claims that Apple has once again submitted doctored evidence related to their claims of design patent-related infringement by Samsung, this time to a court in Netherlands. Apple has been “manipulating visual evidence, making Samsung’s devices appear more similar to Apple’s.” This time the report claims Apple doctored images of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone in comparison to the iPhone 3G.
“It surprises me that for the second time incorrect presentations of a Samsung product emerge in photographic evidence filed in litigation,” said Mark Krul, lawyer and IP law specialist at Dutch firm WiseMen. “This is not appropriate and undermines Apple’s credibility both inside and outside the court room.”
Over the weekend, there had been a lot of interest in a 3G-capable MacBook Pro that has an external antenna. The notebook appeared on eBay and its price reached $ 70,000. The seller describes the antenna as "quite tiny" and attributes some of the initial reactions to the bad angle. Most notably, it's actually attached to the MacBook Pro with magnets, and can come off.
Digitimes suggests that Apple has increased the orders for their iPhone line by about 12-13% from 50 million units to 56 million units. The iPhone 5 in particular will reportedly account for 25.5-26 million units in the second half of 2011. In the 3rd garter the iPhone 5 orders have been decreased from 7 million units to 5.5-6 million units, but in the 4th quarter they have been raised from 14 million units to more then 20 million units. But Apple declines the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 orders from over 20 million in the 3rd quarter to 8 million in the 4th quarter. These numbers, however, are not surprisingly, because, if you look at the history sales graph, these times of the year do represent major jumps in sales for Apple.
We have already heard many rumors about upgrade of Apple’s smartphone line this fall, as well as information about the release of next-generation tablet. Also rumors about launch of iPod touch with 3G modem have been circulating. But we forgot that upgrade of all iPod line is planned on September.
