1.) Download the following software to your “~/Downloads” directory:

RedSn0w

iPad ipsw

2.) Click your cursor on the Desktop to bring up the “Finder” menu, and go to “Go” -> “Utilities” -> “Terminal“.

3.) Type the following commands into “Terminal“: mkdir ~/Desktop/redsn0w;mv ~/Downloads/redsn0w.zip ~/Desktop/redsn0w/;mv ~/Downloads/iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw ~/Desktop/redsn0w/;cd ~/Desktop/redsn0w;unzip redsn0w.zip

4.) Now using “Finder“, open up the ~/Desktop/redsn0w directory and double-click on the redsn0w.app application.

5.) Once you have opened the redsn0w.app application, you should now see the redsn0w 0.9.6b4! application window. From here you will need to click on Browse and select the file ~/Desktop/redsn0w/iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw and hit next.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.) You should now see the following screen:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.) Now you will need to select “Install Cydia” and hit next and follow the on-screen instructions. Also once this process has finished you will need to perform steps 5 through 6 again and when you get to step 7, select “Just boot tethered right now“. Again, you will need to follow the on-screen instructions and this time your iPad will be booted up in tethered mode and you will have access to cydia and your iPad will have been successfully jailbroken.

###VERY IMPORTANT### Every time you need to reboot or boot up your iPad, you will need to peform step 7 and use redsn0w.app to “Just boot tethered mode“. Your iPad will be able to go to sleep or be re-sprung without having to be booted up using redsn0w.app, but every time you need to perform a hard reboot of the device, you will need to use redsn0w.app to boot it up.###VERY IMPORTANT###

###DISCLAIMER: I have tested this procedure with iPad running iOS 4.2.1 only. I have done this several times and I have never run into any problems and I have never bricked an iPad. However, if you use this tutorial, you are using it at your own risk. ###DISCLAIMER###

Whether you’re a Unix or Linux guru or an IT Administrator or maybe even a software programmer, there are always going to be times when you would like to be able to access files and directories that are normally just plain out of reach on Mac OS X through the GUI. And for me, I have always wanted to be able to attach log files into my emails through apple mail. Mac OS X is one of the few Unix like systems that actually hides these hidden files and root directories. No more, we are now going to uncover everything that Apple has been hiding from you in Mac OS X. This is also very helpful if you need to restore hidden files using Time Machine backups. Just follow these simple steps and you to will be able to see everything through finder:

1.) Click on the Desktop to bring up the Finder menu, and go to “Go” -> “Utilities” -> “Terminal“.
2.) Once you have your Terminal up, type in the following command and press return: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
3.) Before you will be able to see the hidden files using the GUI, you will need to run the following command in Terminal to restart Finder: kill -hup `ps -ef | grep Finder | grep -v grep | awk ‘{print $2}’`

Listed below is a screenshot of Terminal running the previous commands:

Now that you can see all of your hidden files by using the GUI and Finder, you can now use Time Machine to restore hidden files.

If you decide you really don’t like being able to see all of Mac OS X’s hidden files or you have used this procedure just to restore hidden files using Time Machine, then you can follow the steps below to turn this feature off:

1.) Click on the Desktop to bring up the Finder menu, and go to “Go” -> “Utilities” -> “Terminal“.
2.) Once you have your Terminal up, type in the following command and press return: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
3.) Before the hidden files will become hidden again using the GUI, you will need to run the following command in Terminal to restart Finder: kill -HUP `ps -ef | grep Finder | grep -v grep | cut -d ” ” -f5`
