iPad Jailbreak
// April 10, 2011

This is a tutorial for Windows users who want to jailbreak their first generation iPad with iOS 4.3.1 using sn0wbreeze. This jailbreak will not work for iPad 2 users, we will provide a tutorial for the iPad 2 when a compatible jailbreak is released.

Step 1

In case the above link doesn’t work, please use the mirror link below:
HotFile Mirror: Download sn0wbreeze 2.5.1.zip

Step 2

Extract, then launch the sn0wbreeze application.

When the sn0wbreeze application opens click ok, close the credits and click the next arrow.

Step 3

Locate the IPSW file you saved earlier (use browse or drag and drop), then click next.

Step 4

Sn0wbreeze will identify your IPSW and let you know when it’s complete. Click the next arrow after the IPSW has been verified.

Step 5

Choose either Simple or Expert Mode.

Simple mode is recommended for most users. Expert mode lets users add custom boot logos, root partition size, installer options, etc. Click the next arrow to continue.

Step 6

Snowbreeze will now build your IPSW (you can play PacMan while you wait). When it’s done the new IPSW file will be on your desktop.

Step 7

You will need to make sure your iPad is plugged into the computer and it’s turned off (hold power button a few seconds then slide to power off).

Step 8

Sn0wbreeze will guide you through putting your device in DFU mode. Follow the on screen instructions.

Step 9

Once you have successfully put you device in DFU mode you will get this message.

Step 10

Open iTunes, hold down the SHIFT Key and click Restore.

Now, locate the sn0wbreeze IPSW on your desktop and click open.

Step 11

After the restore process is complete your iPad will be jailbroken. The Cydia icon should be on the iPad when it’s turned on.

Thanks to i0n1c (Stefan Esser) for the jailbreak and iH8sn0w for the jailbreak tool sn0wbreeze.
