  • [ 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

      There is NO relation between this and Cydia! I'm on a completely different jailbreak and still have crashing issues with cydia today for the first time since my last jailbreak. It's the server, not your phone. (Saurik is still changing and tweaking)

      Do not spread bad info please.

      I downloaded the file both through internet explorer and firefox and both gave me a zip file. It gave me two folders one that says _MACOSX and one that says redsn0w-win_0.7.1 . In the redsn0w folder I tried to run the redsn0w and it tells me that I need to go to a site to require a license I tried to go to that address and it tells me "this topic does not exist yes" then I tried to run the program in the MACOSX folder and it brings up a DOS window and tells me that Ive encountered an illegal instruction. Whatever that means. Please tell me what am I doing wrong. Dont explain to me like Im an idiot but like Im a bright 8 year old. Thank you.
      wow, you need a step by step guide. because you obviously have no idea what you are doing. just wait for the guide man!
      its not that hard
      breathe!

      noooo
      the forums are for sharing and getting info
      NOT posting a million questions, all answered in the OP or with a simple search on here or google,
      and DEFINATELY NOT for people to post the same question 50 times instead of reading!

      sorry but that is the truth.

      some of you are lazy
      it happens to the best of us.
      no need to flame me.

      There isnt anything wrong with "simple questions" yet some people just see a thread for "iphone 3g 3.0 jailbreaking" and immediately go in, dont bother reading a single post in the thread and ask whatever question "they are" concerned with when the solution to their problem or answer to their questions could have been answered on the 2nd post. That's what some people may have a problem with.

      Unfortunately you are indeed coming of very harsh, this is coming from an outside view. Most of the people on the forums have no knowledge of programming or the iphone mods whatsoever. We are here to help those people with useful information. I know I get frustrated sometimes too with all the repeat posts, but this is when you need to take a deep breath and either a. say nothing or b. nicely let them know what to do. Truth is that the people who are asking the repeat question probably found us on google and the link took them directly to the page they are posting on, so they never had a chance to read the previous posts.

      BE NICE, you are not a moderator and do NOT dictate what people can and cannot post.

      @melloout

      seriously dude, you ought mind your own business...

      This thread has become nothing but idiotic question after question starting from page one.

      People are doing a quick google search, finding the middle of the thread, creating an account, asking one retarded question that is easily answered on the first page in red and blue letters, and never taking the time to READ and RESEARCH.

      So yeah were getting a bit pissed off at all these wannabe modders.

      Anything like this requires time and research.

      I remember JB 2.0 for the first time i spent two hours reading so i didnt fuque anything up.

      You people are treating it like fapping to porn you found on the internet as a source of instant gratification.

      If you're using an iphone 3G just do a "restore" using iTunes (you can even do Shift + Restore and browse to the original 3.0 firmware.... so iTunes doesnt have to download the 3.0 firmware in case you already have it). 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
