  • Beta Testers Needed for Untethered Jailbreak


    MuscleNerd is looking for Mac users to help test the "Jailbreak Monte" 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak, which the Dev-Team is pushing out this weekend ahead of @comex's more extensible method. If you have an iPhone4, iPad, or iPod touch 4G and are interested in redsn0w 0.9.7b1, be aware that it is beta code, and it's very possible that things can go wrong. Make sure you have all your media backed up just in case. You'll need to have 4.2b3 SHSH hashes saved on Cydia (no pirate versions!) and if you're using the ultrasn0w carrier unlock, you should avoid this beta.

    Here's some notes from the Dev-Team Blog:
    • This is a beta tester program. Itís not a general release! Things can go very wrong, so please donít even consider testing if you have pictures or other media on your device that you havenít backed up!
    • For the same reason, please donít participate if you rely on the ultrasn0w carrier unlock. Wait for the final version!
    • Until we fix some sandbox issues with bluetooth, the bluetooth functionality is disabled.
    • This very first beta1 is limited to iPhone4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G.
    • Cydia must have your 4.2b3 SHSH blobs saved on file. (As we approach a general release, weíll provide a way to let you use locally saved hashes too).
    • You must already have the usbmuxd software installed and running on your Mac (this requirement will eventually go away too). The correct invocation of the relay is just as that page says: ď./tcprelay.py -t 22:2222Ē. If the relay isnít installed or running correctly by the time the redsn0w ramdisk has started, youíll need to restore to stock FW again to try it again. Please test it beforehand to save yourself some time!

      be aware of reported bugs
      1-task switcher cause spring board crash --- so you cant switch apps or lock orientation
      Work around: use sbsettings plug ins for needer feature

      2-bluetooth is disabled so if you relay on bluetooth speaker you might wanna reconsider
      workaround: none

      "beta testers needed" shouldn't be news worthy. The people that should be testing, have known about it for some time now. This is just going to get a bunch of n00bs phones messed up, maybe I'm wrong, maybe people on modmyi will read an entire post before throwing their phone in dfu mode.... Yeah, on come the threads "redsn0w bricked my device!"

      Beat the staff on reporting once again...


      Just finished installing it on my iPad; I thought I had already had usbmuxd installed so I was perplexed as to why it wouldn't work for a while. Once I had everything installed correctly it worked like a charm.

      Here's a good walkthrough guide: iClarified - iPhone - How to Untether Your iOS Jailbreak (Mac) [4.2.1]

      Still uncertain as to whether or not I want to upgrade my iPhone 4 or not as I'm still on 1.59.0 but don't need an unlock.

      The jailbreak worked fine on my iPad. I just can't double click the home button to bring up the multi tasking dock. It causes the iPad to respring and run safe mode. After a respring all is ok till i try to double tap home again. Are you having this issue as well?

      Hmmm....As much as I'd love to dive headfirst into this beta redsn0w (been waiting for it for over a month now), I think I'll pass and wait for the final release.

      Jailbreak software is generally buggy when first released, I can only imagine the mess it will make being a beta. Besides, I need bluetooth and multitasking, so I guess it's better to wait.

      It has been three months, I've been using Iphone4 without jailbreak, and I'm miserable. My son is using my JB 3G and he is enjoying all the apps that I have downloaded via Cydia.. My patience running thin now and hopefully the Geohot genius will crack the JB for IPhone4 with the latest 4,2.1

      I have heard of that issue. However, I use multifl0w and it works just like normal. Do you by chance have any of the Need For Speed games installed? If so, could you check and see if they cause an immediate crash into safe mode whenever you try to launch them? I'm curious as to whether or not it's an issue with the beta jb or an incompatability issue with one of my cydia apps.

      As a semitethered jailbreak it still is and always will be unpatchable. This is to enable an UNtethered jailbreak.
