  • Redsn0w Updated to Version 0.9.10b3

    Here's to another great redsn0w update!

    We all know by now that the redsn0w 0.9.10 series is the version capable of providing us with an untethered jailbreak (compliments of pod2g) for our iOS 5.0.1 non-A5 devices. It's one of the two methods of gaining the untethered ability – the other being the Corona untether package. Since redsn0w 0.9.10b2 was released yesterday fixing the 'launchctl' problem that caused many dependent applications not to work; IntelliScreenX and OpenSSH to name a couple, many people used it to fix the problem and were plagued with a new problem. The problem was that after running redsn0w over the already untethered jailbreak achieved by redsn0w 0.9.10b1, all of the tweaks installed on the device would disappear causing many to either reinstall all of them or restore the device and rejailbreak. Of course, this was a huge inconvenience with all of the repositories being slow and unresponsive.

    To fix the issue, the iPhone-Dev team has released a new version of redsn0w dubbed redsn0w 0.9.10b3 which can be used to safely run redsn0w over the existing untethered jailbreak without removing all of your tweaks and causing a MobileSubstrate glitch. This morning, you will notice that there is a MobileSubstrate update in Cydia. The glitch from yesterday could be fixed easily by simply reinstalling MobileSubstrate after running the redsn0w overlay, but it seems impractical to have to do that. The new redsn0w will keep you from needing to that.

    The iPhone-Dev team posted this on their blog to summarize the updated redsn0w:
    Update #3: The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed).

    TIP: If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data was found, you can always pre-select the appropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using “Extras->Select IPSW”.
    If you are still having repository errors when reloading, keep in mind that this isn't a jailbreak problem or a Cydia problem, the host servers are simply being overloaded by the volume of people who are jailbreaking and installing things from the repositories. This means that you won't find a jailbreak fix for it and that even tethered jailbreak users are having the problem because they work off of the same repositories as you are. The only fix for it is to wait until traffic dies down a little - I was able to get full successful reloads yesterday which means traffic is easing up.

    This version of redsn0w has been dubbed safe for running over your current jailbreak. Once again jailbreakers rejoice at Apple being Pwned on their brand new operating system. Keep in mind that this jailbreak does not support the iPhone 4S or the iPad 2 yet - but soon, it will. When using this version of redsn0w to jailbreak over your existing jailbreak, deselect, "Install Cydia" first when performing the jailbreak.

    Here are the redsn0w 0.9.10b3 download links:

      I have the same question. If I just update the mobile substrate in cydia, I don't have to re-jailbreak right?

      It's always good to do it. Just do it - it takes 60 seconds or so.

      Click the jailbreak button and follow the prompts. You'll find it.

      reinstalled over the last 2 Redsn0w versions and have multiple problems still. IN Cydia I cannot use the search function at all. Just touching the search window crashes Cydia. Also there are still a lot of apps that crash upon opening.

      I'll do it but should I update mobile substrate first?

      Did this yesterday and saw no option. However, I installed it again and it worked just fine. Got all my tweaks late yesterday.

      What about the b1? I've jailbroke via redsn0w using b1, I didn't update over b2 yesterday. Is it safe for me to skip b2 and jump into b3? (:

      What an ignorant statement. Dev's don't make as much as most think because ungrateful people such as yourself don't bother to donate for work done rather expect that things are done for you for free at a time that is convenient for you. How about a thank you for sharing something that no one has to. We're lucky to get to use this or any jailbreak.

      On another rant: is anyone's phone icon missing when starting their phone? If I hold down an icon until "wiggle mode" it comes back so no biggie just curious

      Heaven forbid you have to take 60 seconds out of your busy day. If it's working fine then don't update but why wouldn't you? For some reason it still amazes me how bad people will complain that they want something then when it's given to them find ways to complain about it.

      Ask them. We're not allowed to talk about piracy sources like that.
