Jailbreak iPhone 4.3.2 on Windows and Mac Using Redsn0w 0.9.6 [Tutorial]

If you don’t care about baseband upgrade, the current latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.6 can also jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 for both Windows and Mac users on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, and iPod touch 4G/3G.

But just like the PwnageTool jailbreak, Redsn0w 0.9.6 too is limited to tethered boot only, which means that you will have to boot your iOS device in tethered state on every reboot.

NOTE: Those of you who rely on a carrier unlock MUST STAY AWAY from Redsn0w and stock iOS 4.3.2 firmware. Also, the patches for 4.3.2 are said to be broken on this version of Redsn0w. PwnageTool 4.3 with 4.3.2 PwnageTool bundles is the recommended way to go, tutorials for which can be found below:
