  • RedSn0w 0.9 Released for Mac and Windows


    The first beta of RedSn0w 0.9 for Mac and Windows has been unveiled, with version 0.9 enabling jailbreaking, unlocking, and customizing of the iPhone OS 3.0/3.1.2 software.

    From this morningís post on Erectric:

    It appears as if the iPhone Dev-Team is back at it again. The group has managed to release the RedSn0w 0.9 Beta jailbreak for all iPhones and the first and second generation iPod Touches today for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
    Strangely enough - and due to whatís being called ďlast minute software changesĒ - the Dev Team hasnít rolled out the release yet with grand fanfare. Fortunately, however, we do know what to expect from the update. According to iClarified:

    • It uses our original Pwnage bootrom exploit for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, and iPod 1G. (Because itís a bootrom exploit, it canít be fixed by Apple without a new hardware release.) Note that redsn0w 0.9 does use the USB exploit for iPhone 3GS and iPod 2G running 3.1.2, but that exploit will be fixed in Appleís next firmware release.
    • It offers custom logos and verbose boot
    • It installs Cydia without needing a separate download
    Despite blackra1n thriving as the jail breaking tool of choice, the new version of redsn0w could resonate with jail breakers new and old and perhaps become the hottest new tool in jail breaking.

    The RedSn0w jailbreak isnít quite as fast as Blackra1n, but it is capable of handling more variations, according to the report.

      So you have not jailbroken your phone yet using Blackra1n? Yeah sure you haven't.

      Just a bit of background here.

      This is not a major release, MN found the code fro RedSn0w (that had been lost) and asked if there was a demand for RedSn0w for 3.12 as BlackRa1n was already out. I told him I thought the demand was great enough for him to release.

      It has the same problems with tethering as BlackRa1n does but is an alternative if you want to try it.

      If you have already tried BlackRa1n I would suggest a DFU restore before RedSn0wing.

      It is still beta and problems should be reported to MN full details at redsn0w 0.9beta3 [iPhone Dev Team]

      confucious: Would you happen to know if the dev team is working on a carrier unlock for baseband 05.11.07?

      The Dev Team only work on every other BB.
      If you bought it with 05.11.07 already on it you can use BlackSn0w, otherwise you have the choice of upgrading with Pwnage and preserving your BB which does not have the problems a small minority have with the Wifi race bug exposed by BlackSn0w or you could upgrade and just use BlackSn0w.

      Thanks for the release !
      Please report here if the redsnow unlock works better than blacksnow.

      Anyone who says BlackSn0w isn't buggy is deluding themselves. I've sampled four users with four phones and all four of them with BlackSn0w are getting frequent disconnects, "no service," and "Searching" that is NOT related to genuine network quality issues (on AT&T and T-Mobile). That's not even considering the WiFi, Youtube, GPS, Push, etc problems.

      With a tethered Jailbreak, what happens when my phone needs a reboot while I'm away from my PC?

      If I rebooted without running the tether, will I still be able to access Cydia and install packages and whatnot?

      Completely unusable?
      If so, then I'll pass on that for now.. Here's hopin' 4.0 is cracked quickly after release.

      Thank you, I'm glad someone else notices. Blacksn0w has been a very unreliable unlock for me and another that I know personally. You have to look a little harder for them, but there are threads around with a lot of other people describing the same problems I have with losing service completely, dropping calls, et cetera.

      This thread is about RedSn0w which is a JailBrake, not an unlock.
      If you have BB 05.11.07 the only unlock available is BlackSn0w.

      Quick question, if i use this instead of blackra1n on a newer iPhone will i still have the same problem for restarting my phone? Will i still get the connect to itunes screen with redsnow if i turn my phone off and on? Or is there a fix in redsnow for that?

      Didnt read whole thread btw.
