  • [ 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

      People just need to read sometimes, this is a forum, and it is based on replies that are text, and these replies contain information that must be read, or else it will be restated the same way, with text. Either way no one likes to repeat, no one wants to repeat a questions when ignored, and no one likes to reanswer when ignored, so if people would just read.
      Anyways, concerning redsn0w. Can only say, did it successfully the third time. If they just said it was suppose to be in dfu the first time, woulda been successful the first time, lol. Instead its like power down, click next, oh put it in dfu you by doing this, and the counter is already going off for you to follow, lolz. Tried to follow that, didn't work as well as just putting it into dfu the way I already know how to do. Anyways, I think that's the trickiest part, everything else is straight forward.
      Also saw a post regarding downloading the ipsw, just my input on that, because I had the same problem using IE8, it downloads it automatically as a zip file, you just gotta rename the extension to .ipsw, and you're set, no decompression needed. Just thought I'd through that out for IE8 users still having trouble downloading ipsw files.

      I read all the comments on 6 pages and I couldn't go any further.

      People that ask questions with very obvious answers and want others to spoon feed them the answer just piss me off

      You people need to read and search before you post a question that has already been answered *shakes head*

      Do you have any security settings set for rules about opening zip files? (if the answer is I don't know, then you don't).

      Are you trying to open this on an unsupported operating system such as Me, 98, Xp, Vista, 7, etc? What are you trying to use it on? It supports Windows 7 fine from my experience in VMware.

      Try to re-download because you may have not gotten it all and it might be corrupt.

Once the factory 3.0 firmware its installed you can try again. (same thing happened to me the first try) second time around redsnow got the work done....

      Good luck
      Thanks does'nt work also now im trying is restore it via DFU mode..

      Actually tried once, and stopped when I realized it wasnt a good idea, Helped a couple thousand people yesterday(not only on MMI), and I seemed to listen to everyone...but ok. Not here to fight like some people. I know your type, you sit on the computer all day blogging and ranting about nothing. Then when someone doesnt share the same opinion as you, you go off the deep end with insults. Sorry OG for stepping on your ground...I will no longer respond to anything you say, you are GOD!

      UPDATE: I just used Redsn0w on iPhone 2G running 3.0FW, worked GREAT! (Unlocked iPhone too) Now to try re-installing my crap and try out Cydia.

      Awesome job as always Dev Team!

      I prefer quickpwn over this. I just jailbroke with it and I was pretty bummed when I saw only "Install Cydia". Plus I have to look at the terrible apple logo for a boot up.
