  • [ 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

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 iPhone" could not be updated. Error(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. =("
      Go into DFU mode and restore, start all over again.

      everyone asking about instulus, you need to go to another forum and ask. these apps are for doing illegal things and you won't get an answer here about them.

      btw, jailbroke with no troubles on a 3g 3.0 with windows 7. cydia is running fine now after the essential upgrades. well, it has crashed once but all is well.

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.
      as it has been said already,
      HOW can you tell me that my opinion should be kept to myself and then you tell me i can't tell anyone what to do here, but yet you turn around and say i need to shutup and or just answer the questions or what have you.

      thats the same thing

      you are telling me what to do now.

      so who the he!! are you again??

      exactly!
      you telling me to stop telling other people what to do because it is a waste of posts,
      then,
      SO IS YOUR POST THAT IS TELLING ME WHAT TO DO!

      DUH!!!

      it is bad enough having to filter thru allllllllll the dumb ***** questions but then we have geniuses like yourself that are actually worse than all the dumb questions.
      you arent helpin at all!

      ur only makin it worse.
      take ur own advice,
      "if you don't have anything nice to say........."
      or
      "if you don't agree, ignore it and move on!"
      damn, truer words have never been spoken!

      ever notice how this only happens during release times.
      so sick of it.
      xsellize has the same info.
      doesn't care about cracking and is WAY more mature than this.

      later guys!

      you are on your on.
      its been fun.
      sure no one will miss me
      lmao

      last but not least,
      if you get the black screen after jailbreak,

      wait!

      its part of 3.0
      after tha apple logo goes away it stays black for a while on 3G, even longer on 1st gen.
      happens everytime you reboot.
      just takes extra long the first time.
      be patient

      u have a very selective memory, but hey, i guess you have to, to get your merit badge right?

      whatever keeps you from crying yourself to sleep at the night i guess!
      good for you!

      begging for thanks!
      you're sooooooooo cool

      and like i said before, me complaining about the many questions and still answering them no matter how harsh you think it is, is no different than you getting pissy because you don't like my replies.
      i don't like what they say, you don't like what i say.

      who exactly is right here?

      no one.

      my opinion, your opinion
      all the same.
      just like buttholes. everyone has one and no one wants yours
      you telling me not to talk to people like that and ignore them,
      who are you?
      not a mod or admin or an owner.
      so i really could give a **** less if you like it or not.
      same way you feel i am sure

      You really are NUTS!! Nowhere in any of those posts did I say what you quotes. I actually handled myself very calmly. You have some major issues you need to work out alone with yourself and maybe a therapist. There is nothing more we can do for you here. On second thought, Maybe you can write an app for yourself...

      yeah i am NUTS, but who is telling me to calm down and what not and continuing to reply?

      you!

      you aren't the boss of anyone!

      Big thanks Dev team! I used redsnow to jailbreak 3.0 on windows yesterday and it works great. Even Tricker 3G works

      Cheers guys!!

      I feel dev team should have waited to release this until they worked out all the bugs,I went to install the weather icon only to find it doesn't work so uninstalled it and my weather icon now just has a "?" where it would normally say 73.Springboard crashes having to go into safe mode...def should have waited.Oh and the only thing I have installed from cydia is cycorder and bossprefs.

      Installed and worked great! One thing I found was when I first tried to JB I got an error: "Device Not Found". How I got around this was to change the USB port the phone was connected to. Worked fine after that. Thanks Dev Team.
      Note to all who are frustrated with Lazy N00bs:
      1. I tell them to check ModMyI.com first.
      2. When that fails, I make $25 a phone to JB it for them at work.
      3. Let them be lazy! ;]

      Happy Father's Day to all Fathers!!!

      your gonna have to get it in DFU mode, restore to a fresh copy of 3.0 and restore, not just try to run the J/B again.
      Here are some tips on DFU if you need them.
      restore/re-Jailbreak, it'll work.
      Good luck

      Yea i had tried all of the DFU tips i could find and nothing was working. I am not sure if it was something with my work computer but i was able to get it to work on my home machine. I am all updated with 3.0 and jailbroken now, Wow that was scary but im glad i was able to figure it out.. Thanks for the support guys, specially the colored snow guys for being the Gods that they are... This software is very easy to use and works great... Amazing job...
