    I have an ipad 4.3.3, and so far I downloaded greenpois0n and tried to jailbreak it asked me to set my device on DFU mode and then started jailbreaking, it started the process then a black screen with lines rolling down started to show and the it stopped and gave me a msg "stuck... we are hanging here" I ended up restoring my ipad.

    I then downloaded the redsnow 0.9.6 after readin the thread "Jail breaking methods for the ipad" but it asked me to choose the ISO and they were no options to chose from, and the "next button was'nt activated"

    PLS HELP

    thanks in advance.

    Cydia is the default app that is installed when you jailbreak.

    F4780y thanks a lot for the links I've tried them but I dont know what I have done wrong? I downloaded both files but when I am asked to select the correspondin IPSW; "I am not sure what that is", I still try to browse and look in the other folder I downloaded, but their would be nothing but sub folder that are empty :(

    Mikeos, thanks alot I will try the other link if I give up on the current one I downloaded.

    thanks all

    Did you download them all? That was a mistake...
    There should only be 1 possible match for your device and firmware. If you are on iPad1 4.3.3 you must choose that firmware file (it was the first link in the post). No other device. No other version. OK?

    No I just downloaded the first option.
    on my desktop i have a folder called: "iPad1,1_4.3.3_8J3_Restore (1)"
    then it has a folders called "Firmware" and the following file:
    038-1421-004
    038-1437-004
    038-1449-004
    BuildManifest
    kernelcache.release (2)
    kernelcache.release (3)
    kernelcache.release
    Restore

    Now in the firmware folder there are teo subfolders:
    all_flash
    dfu
    in the all_flash folder there is another folder "all_flash.k48ap.production" that has many files most of them are images.
    and in the DFU folder only 2 files are there "iBEC.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu"
    "iBSS.k48ap.RELEASE.dfu"

    KINDLY ASSIST.

    No you've unzipped it. You must not do that. Download again and rename it to an ipsw file which should be 600mb+ in size... That is the firmware file

    If you still have the file you unzipped to create this folder then all you need to do is right click on it and choose "rename." Change iPad1,1_4.3.3_8J3_Restore.zip to iPad1,1_4.3.3_8J3_Restore.ipsw

    Hi, and thanks for the assist; I've deleted the old folders I downloaded previously both the zipped and unzipped one. I dowloaded it again and now it is unzipped. I just "right clicked on the unzipped folder and renamed it from .zip to .ipsw. I then tried to run redsn0w but when I browsed my desktop I was still unable to find the folder.

    Kindly help. Thank alot

    Sorry dude. You didn't read my post properly. I specifically said the problem was that you unzipped it and YOU SHOULD NOT DO THAT!
    All you want when the download is complete is 1 file about 660MB in size which ends with the extension ipsw. Then you browse to that file with redsn0w. Clear?
    NO UNZIPPING.

    Do not unzip the file! Just rename it.

    Rename the file, i.e. Filename.zip to filename.ipsw

    Then tell it where the renamed zip file is

    sorry I meant to say it is still zipped. But what is confusing me is it is downloaded as a folder not as a single file it is 593MB, I renamed the folder to.ipsw, but the funny thing is when I right click on the folder and go to properties and then to details the file name is "ipad1.1_4.3.3_8j3_restore.ispw.zip"???????????

    Your configuration in windows is not allowing you to rename it properly. You probably have it set to hide file extensions for known file types. You can change this in Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / View and untick "Hide extensions for known file types".

    Or you could try using a "proper" browser like firefox or chrome to download it. I think the rename is just an IE annoyance...

    Delete the .zip when viewing in properties then save/ok

    Sounds like you are using windows xp
