  • Redsn0w beta official release from Dev Team


    A month or so ago, the Dev Team released the patch codenamed redsn0w to fully jailbreak the iPod Touch 2G with its new processor. Within a week, we saw apps like untetherizer and quickfreedom to simplify the process of utilizing the patch. The Dev Team has now released a beta version of their very own app to jailbreak the iPod, but unlike the old QuickPwn and Pwnage Tool - they have released versions for Windows and OS X at the same time, and for the first time for Linux as well!

    Beta O'Clock
    Today at exactly 2 minutes past Beta O’Clock we are releasing a beta version of redsn0w. The release hopes to simplify the jailbreaking of your iPod touch 2G.

    redsn0w is currently in beta as it relies on the user running it from the command line, but this new redsn0w functionality is being added into our GUI applications.

    If you are not fully confident with using the command line, then hold off for those simpler tools that will be released sometime soon.

      hey thanks guys. this was my first jail break and it was as easy as i could ever ask for. note to all new people: run the program without the ipod plugged it (so u can't hurt it ) and read through the DFU mode instructions so you know what to do when it starts counting for you. then plug it in and go for it. it is a little nerve racking but if you see an apple logo don't panic just w8 and it will do its thing. thanks again guys. if i can do it then it is definitely easy enough.

      its actually the exact opposite, when you are using pwnage tool people have noticed a great speed improvement ast compared to a quickpwned phone... see one1's "how to have a blazing fast jailbroken iphone."
      Erm...This is what that thread said "4- quickpwn your phone. This is very important, do not use pwnage. I have ran this experiment 10 times on 2 phones for 2 days..... pwnage CFW slows the system down. quickpwn is the fastest operating jailbreak by far."
      I think you've misread him121213

      Ehm...

      actually the thread is "Redsn0w beta official release from Dev Team", anyway, with Redsn0w bet'o'clock 0.3 , I spent 35 seconds for DFU mode and 85 seconds waiting for jailbroken iPod Touch to reboot.

      Quite cool eh?

      Thnx a LOT Dev-Team

      ^You timed it, lol. I should have timed mine. I was quite scared when I was jailbreaking, as it finished rebooting and it took ages to reboot, and I thought I was the one who was also affected by the reboot problem! But I wasn't, thank god.

      Looks like your one of those unlucky ones who has got stuck in a reboot loop. A restore is the only way to go.

      The zShare mirror for the Mac version of this actually contains the Windows version, it's an .exe file.
