  • 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.

      I don't think there's a doubt that i4 will be jailbroken the first day by the way these Devs are going.Great job guys and thank you for your hard work,which gies unnoticed by some idiots that come in here from time to time to complain.

      Most of us Windows users that wanted 4.0 GM Jailbroken have found other ways of doing it like using VMWare or a Hackint0sh but this is still nice.

      Still no 3GS support? Love the work these guys do but I'm starting to feel left out.

      I just don't get why people (non-devs) are freaking out over the GM and wanting to jailbreak it so much, especially since iOS4 is officially being released on Monday. A bunch of the apps are still not fully compatible with iOS4. Why risk JBing your device for something that's not quite ready?

      I'm not against jailbreaking. I plan on freeing my iPhone as soon as the Dev Team releases it.

      May I take this opportunity to plug the official 4.0 compatibility list? If you're going to jailbreak now, why not help us out and test out a few extensions, then post working/not working results and I'll get them edited in!

      Good post... Too bad there is a lot of people out there that do not have patience or decide to dive into a world that they do not understand the language too. It never fail... There will be those that cant or refuse to read any warnings and opt to try and update their system. Then they will come here and cry and complain. Mark my words! If I had a thank you pushed for each person that does this the server would need new code written to accept higher numbers. LOL

      bllew- what are you talking about? I hope your talking about JB apps because all official apps won't have to be updated for ios4.
