Jailbreak iPad 4.3.2 Using PwnageTool 4.3 [Bundles]

Apple has released iOS 4.3.2 firmware update for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, and iPod Touch 4G, 3G yesterday. Very soon after this release, DjayB6 has given PwnageTool Bundles to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2. We have covered a step by step guide to jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.2 using these bundles.

Here we cover the steps to jailbreak iPad on iOS 4.3.2 using PwnageTool bundles along with PwnageTool 4.3. As always, we patch PwnageTool 4.3 with the given bundles before proceeding to build custom iOS 4.3.2 firmware for iPad. Later we restore iPad to this custom build to jailbreak it on iOS 4.3.2.

Note: PwnageTool Bundles is an unofficial release. Also this is a tethered jailbreak, so you will have to boot your device into ‘tethered mode’ each time you restart it.
