  • [ 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

      Guys i was previously on firmware 2.2.1 with iPhone 3G. I hit the upgrade button on itunes to OS 3.0... itunes extracts the software, and prepares the itouch for updating. The silver apple shows up on the itouch, and the bar gets to roughly 70-80%, and iTunes keeps giving me the same error. "the ipod "ipod" could not be updated. (14)."I tried several times restoring to the OS 3.0 i downloaded from iclarified and even the old firmware 2.2.1, even changing the usb ports to connect my usb to, but still the same problem occured. Any help guys? It's killing me. =(

      I jailbroke like 30 mins ago with this and i was installing things from cydia when it wouldnt let me do anything. Couldnt go home, couldnt get the "slide to power off" to come up. So I did I hard reset. At the moment I'm stuck at the boot logo screen. It's been like this for about 5 mins.

      Just noticed it blinked off for a second. Last time this happened to me was the first time I ever jailbroke. Do I need to restore?

      When this happens to me i simultaneously push the home and power buttons over and over again. The phone will eventually come to. If not you might need to put into DFU mode and restore

      since now i guess.

      my problem has always been since there are only currently three generations of iPhone, everyone confuses the naming conventions of the 3G service with it being the 3rd Generation iPhone...

      And because of that the 1st Generation iPhone has become known as the 2G iphone...

      So just to clarify:

      There are 3 Generations of the iPhone:

      iPhone - 1st Generation iPhone that runs on the Edge Network

      iPhone 3G - 2nd Generation iPhone that runs on the Edge AND 3G Network

      iPhone 3GS - 3rd Generation iPhone that Runs on the Edge and 3G Network, but has twice the ram and twice the processing power as iPhone 3G, or 2nd Gen iPhone...

      The longest it happened to me was for 15 minutes...it normally only happens to me when A. I installed a cracked app or B. I installed an incomplete package from cydia. If it does unfreeze try to undo the last thing you did before it froze.
