  • [ 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

      To southfrisco: Ultrasnow will actually jailbreak/unlock your iPhone 3G when it comes out.

      It's not that hard. Just select the right firmware and follow the on screen instructions. If you're on Vista, I checked Run as Administrator. Worked great.

      It's probably not 3.0 compatible yet.

      you two are like two people who walk into a bar or a club for the first time that's been around for years, and try to dictate how people should act...

      All that is requred is that you not act like a couple of children that just discovered your iPhones and think that modding is something that JUST happened the other day.

      Hate to break it too you but 60% of this thread is nothing more then people asking incredibly stupid questions that can be answered very easily, as well as people arguing over conduct...

      No one here has said "Google is your friend" or any type of obnoxious response. All that has been expected of people is too..

      Oh i don't know, read the first page maybe? The big friendly red and blue letters? If that is too difficult for the majority of first time posters who can't get it through their thick skulls then they have no business modding ANYTHING because they are going to wind up bricking their phones and having mommy and daddy buy them a new one so that they can do it all over again.

      This forum along with modmymoto, is run be really great people who truly love to mod. Who are curious people who spend alot of time, FREE DONATED TIME to make our gadgets cool, by hacking, modding, screwing up, and fixing and developing a writing lengthy detailed manuals so that we as the end user don't have to go through the pains that they did.

      And it's a slap in the face when you have first time, and only time posters coming up asking, not questions to clarify something that might be a bit foggy, but instead @$$hole questions like:

      Will this work on the 3gS? No you moron, it's says so on the front page.

      Where can I get cracked apps? No you idiot, if you took the time to read the sticky that was posted that outlines the rules of decorum you would know that you don't ask how to or request anything regarding cracked apps.

      Have I ever done something stupid like not reading the sticky on the forum? Yes, and when I was called on it, you can bet damn sure that I humbly apologized and thanked the person for showing me the way.

      I say humbly not because they are my betters, but humbly because I was negligent and wasn't something called "responsible". Yeah, reading through 30 pages of BullSh!T posting can be tedious, but you know what? There wouldn't be 30 Pages of BullSh!T if people would post Bullsh!T posts regarding things covered in the front page!

      And what's even sadder is that I have had to post yet another BullSh!t post that clutters up this thread just to have to explain it to you two.

      It's not about being an "OG", a Newfag or Oldfag, or n00b, or 733T, or whatever, it is about having some type of respect for the people who dedicate their time and resources and MONEY to a project that they generally don't ask for anything in return.

      They could easily have made all of this command line/terminal based, they could have easily made all of this without a nice GUI so that even less people could have done this. But instead, they have made something with a really nice interfaces, with some really great instructions on how to. Do you have any idea how long it takes to make things looking nice and uniform? Do you have any clue how much time is dedicated just to this as a hobby?

      No you probably don't, all you want to do is say "be nice", and "get along", and then mock those who get pissed off for legit reasons.

      The simple answer is this, if you can't read the front page, if you can't spend some time reading and researching then you all need to find a new hobby, cause modding really isn't for you.

      I had read in a thread earlier, that there is a slight bug with YouTube and Jailbreaking.

      Something about it that causes it to crash (perhaps this was with QuickPwn and OS X).

      Is that still the case here, or are there no known bugs regarding this?

      HAHA, except I DO spend a lot of time on here helping people and responding to the "stupid questions" . I said before, they piss me off sometimes too, but I ignore it and just answer them anyways. Modding is not new to me. I have been doing this for several years now and know what I am doing. I didnt just stumble in here yesterday as you say. I as well do this as a HOBBY and do not ask anything in return. I have ads in all of the Miami papers offering FREE iPhone troubleshooting.

      All I was saying to begin with was, dont get so pissed off at the people who ask the same questions. They are just trying to learn and we should just help them instead of complaining about them. After all, it is the ones who keep asking these same questions who produce more and more hits on the MMi site....

      Again, not trying to argue about who is better than who, I don't care. I know what I am doing and I am just here to help, plain and simple.

      To put a stop to all of this, I refuse to respond to anymore ...

      3. Follow on Screen Instructions
      4. Shut your Phone Off
