  • redsn0w 4.0 JB Now Available For Windows


    Well folks, that didn't take long at all. MuscleNerd and the Dev Team have reported an updated Redsn0w for Windows, so all you non Mac users can finally join in.

    The redsn0w beta has been updated for 4.0GM on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non-MC version). Multitasking and homescreen wallpaper are turned on by default (Apple doesn't normally allow this on these 2 devices). You can deselect these features if you choose.

    A version for Windows is now provided.

    Just like our other betas, this one intentionally doesn't “hactivate” the iPhone. Please wait for Apple's public release of 4.0 for that part of it.

    YOU SHOULD STAY CLEAR OF THIS BETA SOFTWARE IF YOU RELY ON A CARRIER UNLOCK. That's because the beta redsn0w works only if your device has already been upgraded to the stock 4.0beta1/beta4/GM IPSW from Apple, which contains a baseband update. If you installed that IPSW, you've already lost the carrier unlock until the next planned release of ultrasn0w and blacksn0w.
    I don't think I need to say much more, other than, if you don't know what your doing, please for the love of god, wait until the next release, which i'm sure isn't too far away.

      Can I just confirm so I can give correct info if asked by friends who consult me on these things:

      There is currently no JB solution for the 3GS running iOS4 on either Mac or PC?

      No there is no unlock yet for 3GS running ios 4 but according to the dev team it's just "for now" so expect one soon hacktivation will also be available but only until the official ios 4 comes out June 21

      There is an unlock, but only for 5.11.07 baseband. Can't vouch for anything beyond that since I stuck to 3.1.2 until now because impatience got the best of me and I had to try out iOS 4 GM.

      Jailbreaking the 4.0 software on a 3GS does not mean 4.0 on the iPhone 4 will b as easy. The 3GS made it harder to jailbreak. There is no doubt that apple will make it even harder with iPhone 4.

      Unfortunately, it won't seeing as Apple has probably used an entirely different bootrom, and thus won't be jailbreakable right out of the box. In fact, it isn't, seeing as none of the devs has had one in their possession to jailbreak it - yet.

      @headcheese I was referring to the JB apps. I've only had a couple of issues with standard apps on iOS4 (Echofon crashing every time I try to update my timeline). According to the spreadsheet that people have posted on here a few times, there are quite a few JB apps that definitely shouldn't be used yet because of compatibility issues. Some of the more novice users on here might think, "Oh cool! iOS4 JB! I can use all of my old apps again!" only to find out that the start causing the phone to behave abnormally because they were impatient.

      I'm not against jailbreaking. I plan on freeing my iPhone as soon as the Dev Team releases it.
      If you plan on freeing your iPhone, then you are one of us (those people) What you are going to do, wait till all the apps are compatible? Ok while you wait Im going to jailbreak mine and anjoy the new world of jailbreak

      The apps that I would use are not compatible right now, so, it's pointless for me to jailbreak at this time. Others can technically do what they want. Who am I to stop them? The point I was trying to get across was that people should exercise a little more patience instead of trying to jailbreak a device that has apps that aren't ready for mainstream yet.

      Lets hope the iphone 4 hardware is not much different then the ipad and they can jailbreak it soon. A 4.0 iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 dual release would be quite nice.

      This is great! They've found a jailbreak that quick! Now let's really hope they find an unlock as quick as that jailbreak! Hasn't Geohot found out how to jailbreak & unlock 4.0 already?
