  • How to Jailbreak Using redsn0w 0.9 (Windows)


    {last updated November 1st, 2012}

    This Windows only guide (OS X guide here) will teach you how to jailbreak various devices using redsn0w 0.9. The current version of redsn0w 0.9 is 0.9.15b3. Note this is an UNTETHERED JAILBREAK (with the exception of 4.3.4/4.3.5/5.0 where it is a tethered jailbreak), meaning you can reboot your phone just like you normally would.

    This guide should be used with the following device/firmware combinations (if you're not sure, here's how to find your iOS firmware version and how to find your iOS device type):
    • iPhone 3G | 4.3.4
    • iPhone 3GS | 4.3.3
    • iPhone 3GS | 4.3.4
    • iPhone 3GS | 4.3.5
    • iPhone 3GS | 5.0
    • iPhone 3GS | 5.0.1
    • iPhone 4 | 4.2.9
    • iPhone 4 | 4.2.10
    • iPhone 4 | 4.3.3
    • iPhone 4 | 4.3.4
    • iPhone 4 | 4.3.5
    • iPhone 4 | 5.0
    • iPhone 4 | 5.0.1
    • iPad 1 | 4.3.3
    • iPad 1 | 4.3.4
    • iPad 1 | 4.3.5
    • iPod touch 3G | 4.3.4
    • iPod touch 3G | 4.3.5
    • iPod touch 4G | 4.3.4
    • iPod touch 4G | 4.3.5
    • iPod touch 4G | 5.0
    • iPod touch 4G | 5.0.1
    If you prefer the simpler version of this guide with no pictures, click here.

    Alright, let's get started. First thing you'll need to do is download the Windows version of redsn0w 0.9.15b3 from mod.my/redsn0wwin0915b3. Double-click the zip file to unzip it, and open the redsn0w folder to see the redsn0w.exe file.



    Making sure your device is connected, double-click redns0w to launch it. You will see the redsn0w home screen - press the Jailbreak button.



    Before you do anything on the next screen, power off your device by pressing and holding the sleep button (the button on the top) until the slide to power off screen comes up. Slide to power off. NOTE: As of iOS firmware 5.1.1, this step is not necessary.



    Alright, NOW you can press Next on the redsn0w page which tells you to power off your device. NOTE: redsn0w will IMMEDIATELY ask you to press and hold the sleep button on the device, then continue holding it while pressing the home button, then continue holding the home button while letting go of the sleep button. Make sure your device is in your hands before pressing Next in redsn0w. NOTE: As of iOS firmware 5.1.1, this step is not necessary.



    After successfully following the prompts of holding buttons down (this is entering DFU mode for the device), redsn0w will tell you it is Exploiting with limera1n. You can now let go of the home button on your device. NOTE: As of iOS firmware 5.1.1, this step is not necessary.





    redsn0w will go through a few screens, telling you it is waiting for a reboot, then popping up a new window with various status messages as it jailbreaks your device.





    Once that is done, you'll be shown a screen asking what you'd like to do. The default action (which we'll be doing in this guide) is to Install Cydia. You're welcome to check any other boxes you'd like, but please only do so if you know what you're doing. Press Next when you've selected your choices.



    redsn0w will now tell you Uploading ramdisk, which will take a few seconds, and then say Done! Once it says Done! it is safe to close redsn0w, as the rest of the jailbreak process will happen on the device itself.





    Your device will now scroll a bunch of command line messages as the jailbreak completes. After a minute or so of the scrolling text, you will see the pwnapple logo with some more status updates (the final step before your jailbreak is complete).





    That's it! You're now holding a jailbroken device. Not too bad, eh?

      First, you will have to download 4.3.1 firmware for your iPad and update your device using iTunes 10.2.1. Then, download Redsnow for iPad and start the app. Browse for the iOS 4.3.1 file.

      Usually pretty good at this, but a little unsure.

      iPhone4, currently on 4.3.3.
      How do i get it up to JB untethered iOS 5. It currently only has SHSH blobs for all iOS 4 versions + iOS 5.1 (no untether in that one). Its a friends. Dont want to butcher it. Can i use tiny umbrella to somehow add a 5.0.1 blob?

      Thanks

      If you dont have 5.0.1 SHSH you cannot restore to that firmware.

Can someone please explain this to me. I know you get countless folks asking for this same thing but I'd be very thankful for someone to help me and tell me where I can get the software I need and then what to do Thanks so much.

      There are guides explaining with download links. You can jailbreak tethered.

      That means you'll have to connect to pc everyone you turn it off or reboot.

      Have a look at my redsnow guide in my signature for info and download link.

      The latest version of redsnow 0.9.11b4 can jailbreak 5.1.1 no problem (it is still a tethered jailbreak though).
