  • [ 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

      Successfully jailbroke my iPhone 3G and have installed Winterboard, Cycorder, Video Recorder 3G and xGPS. The Cydia installer is still buggy so a word of caution when trying to install large files. Winterboard works great though I noticed it takes longer to boot the iPhone 3G after installing this app. Don't know if this is necessarily an issue with Winterboard or with the theme I use Apple 2009. I'll try others and report back if I notice a difference. As for Cycorder it works great though still no update to allow sending files via email or to YouTube. Video Recorder 3G crashes when trying to open so we'll have to wait for an update to support the 3.0 firmware. xGPS works just as it did before so no bugs noticed at this time.

      Do you have any app that uses Push Notification service installed?
      Settings for APNS only appears if you do.
      I recommend QuickPigeon to try it out, It's free

      Since so many "people" choose to come to a thread without reading first to find the answers to there problems... My personal yet HARSH opinion is "Banning" the "Illiterate Individual's" that cant do a first grade or even pre-school act (depending on the school one attended) called "READING"....

      This thread has made for good reading this fathers day weekend. I am glad to see another way for the masses to release their phones (by jailbreak or unlocking) the new FW. I read one post that was interesting......what is the real difference between redsnow and pwnage tool? I hope I did not miss the explanation somewhere within the thread but I have begun developing (just bought a macbook pro) and I thought it was an interesting question. Is there a real difference or more about which you prefer. Just curious, there probably is no real difference between the two.

      I would say redsn0w accomplishes the same feat Quickpwn did. Pwnage tool creates custom IPSWs for you to use in itunes. Redsn0w jailbreaks devices running unmodified IPSWs...

      After the program asks you to realease POWER button but continue holding HOME button for 30 secs....DO IT! Keep holding HOME button for another 15-20secs for those having that sort of problem. If you release the HOME button when the iPhone screen is black and the program moves to the next page it will freeze.
