  • Redsn0w Updated. Adds Custom Boot Logos and Settings Simplification

    Just as all of us modders have finally gotten our untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1 (except for the iPad 2,) and with a release of 4.3.2 looming, presumably to patch the untether created by @i0n1c, @MuscleNerd and the rest of the iPhone Dev Team have released redsn0w RC10 RC11, an upgrade from the original release for iOS 4.3.1, RC9.

    According to the dev team blog, redsn0w RC9 "enabled too many settings" for specific devices, confusing some users as they jailbroke their devices. The new update hopes to solve this confusion, simplifying the default settings, and then allowing users to choose settings as needed, as long as they know what they're doing.

    The update also adds compatibility for animated boot logos (which the team says is "more robust across all devices.") We first saw this option in the latest greenpois0n, the 4.2.1/4.2.6 jailbreak released by the chronic dev team, and later added to the windows-only jailbreak solution, sn0wbreeze, created by @ih8sn0w.

    @MuscleNerd reminds unlockers to only use custom IPSWs created with sn0wbreeze or pwnagetool that specifically preserve the baseboard. He has also mentioned over the past few days that 4.3.1 accidentally breaks ultrasn0w, and an update for the package is in the works. It should be noted that this update is simply for compatibility with current unlockable basebands. It will not unlock any baseboards that have not previously been unlocked.

    Lastly, he also reminds jailbreakers, that "unless mentioned otherwise in blog post, you should be able to run redsn0w on top of whatever [jailbreak] you have for that [firmware.]" So if you've already jailbroken on 4.3.1, feel free to run the new redsn0w on top of your current jailbreak to add custom boot logos.

    redsn0w RC11 is available for Windows and Mac, and can be downloaded at the dev team blog or at the following links:

      Guys, im still on 4.0.1 on iPhone 4, and use MyWi quite a bit for my tethering needs, because I refuse to pay extra to my network (Vodafone UK) for official tethering.

      I have read some reports that networks can detect unofficial tethering on 4.3.1 - is this true? AT&T Cracking Down on MyWi Tethering?

      Im thinking of upgrading to 4.3.1 but dont want to lose MyWi for it, especially as I have plans of getting an iPad 2 WIFI model and use my iPhone to tether to it

      Vodafone can almost certainly detect that you are tethering. UK companies are way ahead of their US counterparts and have been able to do this for years.
      If they have done nothing about it then it has nothing to do with your FW.
      You are breaking the terms of your contract so don't be surprised if they do come down on you hard one day.
      In the mean time, enjoy what you can steal.

      Figures this happens the day after I jailbreak D:
      Although last time I used a custom bootlogo my iPod stopped booting, so it makes me nervous to use it again...

      I have been on 4.3.1 from the new jailbreak and everything is working well on my iPhone 4. I can't get the custom boot logos to work after re jailbreaking with the redsnow update but hey, you can't have everything , right?

      I don't even have the boot loader option in Settings and I did check the box on the JB. Oh well, no biggy I guess.

      bootlogos on ipod touch 3g dont work either. although it might also be the bootlogo program having an issue with it. just a theory.

      Just updated my iPad less than 10 minutes ago and no option in Settings for boot loader?? Why? Do I need to re-JB again? (And of course unchecking install cydia and checking custom boot loader, which is what I did the first time)

      It shows up in settings and I can view the preview but it doesn't show up after reboot.

I have all SHSH blobs saved so that is not an issue, I guess I have been lazy and never saw the need to upgrade.

      And just to make sure I am reading this correctly, this is an untethered JB right?
      If your not gonna upgrade to 4.3.1, at least go up to 4.1. That is the firmware with the most working Cydia tweaks, and it even has more integrated iOS features. I'm on 4.2.1, but that's because it's my earliest shsh (itouch 4g), but some mods don't work. Like panorama, gridlock...
