  • [ NEW ] redsn0w - Multi-Platform Jailbreak/Unlock Tool


    The DevTeam has released a NEW product (yes, with a name we've already heard) called redsn0w.

    MMi Member Links:
    Updated to redsn0w0.7.2
    redsn0w 0.7.2 for Mac Megaupload Rapidshare
    redsn0w 0.7.2 for Windows Megaupload Rapidshare
    check the DevTeam thread for more download links if you need them

    DON'T USE THIS IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING YELLOWSN0W AND WANT TO KEEP YOUR UNLOCK. ultrasn0w will be out soon and then you can do this.

    Here's the rundown:
    • Runs on Windows.
    • Runs on OS X (Intel only, but they are working out a bug to have PPC support up shortly)
    • JAILBREAKS iPhone 3G.
    • JAILBREAKS and UNLOCKS iPhone 2G.
    • DOES NOTHING to iPhone 3GS.
    • JAILBREAKS iPod Touch 2G.
    • JAILBREAKS iPod Touch 1G.

    We're working on guides on how to run this puppy, but its fairly self-explanatory. Expect full detailed instructions from us today (read: in the next hour or two for some of the guides).

    A few important things to know:
    • DO NOT run this if you are running less than 3.0 on an iPhone 3G and are using yellowsn0w to unlock. You WILL lose your unlock, and since the 3G 3.0 unlock (ultrasn0w) has not been released yet, you'll be stuck with no phone UNTIL ULTRASN0W IS RELEASED.
    • This tool (redsn0w) should be used AFTER doing a stock restore first. Just open up iTunes, and press restore. You'll be restored to the latest firmware (iPod Touch users of course will need to pay for 3.0 if you haven't) and THEN can run redsn0w.

    MuscleNerd notes:

    If you have useless locked 3G with original sim that iTunes still recognizes, may as well update to 3.0 & JB and use it as Touch til ultra
    While you're waiting for our guide, here's a couple useful links:

    iPhone 3G 3.0 Firmware .ipsw
    iPhone 2G 3.0 Firmware .ipsw

      So, am I right in thinking that if I used redsn0w to jailbreak my iphone 3G, running the 3.0 OS now, I'll still be able to use my phone on my official o2 contract that I bought it with, BUT I'll still have the option to unlock it with ultrasn0w at a later date once it is released?

      Can someone explain the differences of doing it in Redsnow or Pwnage tool on a mac for a 2g Iphone, not how it's done but is Redsnow better? I have always used Pwnage tool and it has always worked great for me, are there advantages for using Redsnow? I didn't see any explanations in the thread, I didn't search the whole forum though.

      SOLUTION:
      Type ".ipsw" (without quotes) at the end of the file name. This will change it back to the format you need!

      So correct me if I'm wrong, you don't need a custom firmware?
