  • redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 Out - Tethered Jailbreak for 4.2.1 on Older Devices
    redsn0w 0.9.6beta4 was just recently announced, and beta5 is now out giving both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. (why?).

    This release jailbreaks iPhone3G, older iPhone3GS, and non-MC iPod touch 2G. It also assists 3G and 3G[S] users with baseband 05.14 or 05.15 who have been stuck without an unlock upgrade their baseband to 06.15 in order to use the new ultrasn0w which was just released. DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOU NEED TO. More on that here.

    A much upgraded Cydia is also included in this release, which we'll be writing a full story on in the morning - a ton of great improvements thanks to saurik and chpwn.

      With a Gs @4.1, 5.14.02 BB, I've tried with the latest redsn0w, but during the process, I stuck with recovery mode. Any idea how to get out this situation?

      For anybody that's already jailbroken w/ 4.2.1 with b4, I just re-broke with b5 with no problems. Of course you have to reinstall everything (or restore Pkgbackup) to get all the current software back in-sync with Cydia's packages but it all seems to work just fine.

      Yes. It does apprea that you get the new Cydia when you do this (that's why I did it to begin with).

      YOYO and YMMV applies, of course.

      I have just gone through the whole redsn0w process, step by step through iclarified, Redsn0w finished and the phone started to reboot...

      Problem: the boot is stuck on the apple logo and has the "loading" circle right in the middle of the apple as well(not moving).

      I've tried rebooting it 2-3x now and it's still the same.

      I've just done the "just boot tethered right now" and everything is working--> .
      I suppose I didn't read that bottom of the list of steps.

      I hope there will be an "Untethered" JB/unlock

      UPDATE: when I use my volume buttons, something crashes and i'm forced into "safe mode"

      Can anyone confirm this working on 32gb 3gs with new boot rom.
      I get unexpected error occurred immediately after the exploit begins.
      Thanks

      Cydia is a lot better but don't expect a drastic change ! Some people are calling it "new" Cydia When it's just a tweaked version to work on 4.2 with a few touches here and there I jailbroke my sisters iPhone 3G with it and it's not different to me at all except faster " unless I got the old version still ?

      How to Download & Install New Cydia 1.0.3366-1 on iOS 4.1 & Older Firmware

      If you're comfortable with installing .deb files manually (I believe you can do it easily using iFile) you can get the latest version of Cydia direct from the repository: http://apt.saurik.com/cydia/debs/cyd...honeos-arm.deb

      There's not really that much difference to be honest. The initial loading screen (where it says "Loading..." with a little spinner) is now on the regular grey-blue background rather than a black one. And loading changes was definitely faster. Other than that, no new features as far as I could tell.

      edit: beaten to it I guess

      Or you can just use the latest redsn0w to install it.

      There's no way I'm doing a tethered jailbreak, but I'm excited for the Cydia changes. I'll be F5ing the MMI news forum until the article pops up!

      If I install it via ifile will it automatically overwrite the old version?

      Edit: worked perfect. So much for completely new UI.

      Iphone 3g:
      Current:

      Tmobile
      FW 4.0.1
      Baseband 05.13.14

      I want to upgrade... to 4.2.

      Do I have to update via iTunes to 4.2 first? Then use redsn0w? And if I do use redsn0w do I have to select the iPad ipsw or iphone 3g ipsw? (do they have to be in the same folder?)

      Thanks for your help!!!!
