  • Dev-Team Confirms Untethered redsn0w for Windows


    The announcement we've all been wanting to hear for some time, is finally getting close. The @redsn0w_testers has tweeted a confirmation that they will indeed release an untethered redsn0w for Windows, while the iOS 4.1 IPSW is still available, thus providing a "legal" jailbreak.

    Using the jailbreak Monte 4.1, this untethered release will be available for users using 4.2.1 firmware, so its assumed that you should have blobs on file for iOS 4.1x The application will run on Windows, however there will be a slight decrease in speed over the Mac version, but no one should really notice anything.

    Keep your eyes peeled, it feels like this release is right around the corner.

      I had to run redsnow twice because it froze at exploiting lime rain. Otherwise it was just the process of backing up everything in iTunes

      One question which I may have to post. I reinstalled ITunes 10 because Pc crash. I then moved iTunes folder to c: and synced with itunes. I backed up iPhone and went to 4.2.1 and jailbroke I also transferred all purchases from iPhone first.

      None of the checks are checked for apps music vid tabs etc. If I check for example apps tab it wants to erase all of my stuff from phone. How can I make it sync my iPhone without putting the old setup back on my phone?

      I believe you need to Authorize that PC. thats what happened to me. It did the same thing, once I Authorized it it worked fine.

      Just wanted to throw this out there in-case anyone else runs across this issue: Was using Redsnow jailbreak on my Mac, and it kept giving me an error, so I switched to my PC and the first time I ran the Windows version it froze at the "exploiting limerain" screen. ran it again, froze, ran it again AFTER switching USB ports, and worked flawlessly. Not sure why it didn't work properly on my Mac, but whatever, it's done.
