  • 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.

      On my Cydia it's says "SHSH: 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.2b3.". But the only time I remember actually saving my SHSH was for 4.0.1. Am I good to go for this next jb? I'm still on 4.0.1. jb on BB 01.59.00. How would I retrieve 4.1 for the new untethered jb?

      Nope, Apple isn't signing 4.1 anymore .

      As far as the iPad, it would be nice if they just kept it working with 4.2b3 which they used to build and test this jailbreak (with the iPad too). I get the impression this might not be the case with the legal status of beta firmware distribution, but it's technically possible so we can hope.

      I think Cydia automaticly saves your blobs if you have that setting chosen.

      So far there is only untethered available for iPhone 3g and iPod 2g.

      It does seem like a more practical jailbreak is available in much less time and worse still an unlock, i know jb's and unlocks are held back i see clearly why but i do still think apple are winning,the fact they are held back gives apple bonus points + attention etc etc

      Us folks who either got a warranty replacement from Apple, or bought a new phone already on 4.2.1 will just have to keep hanging on by the look of it

      You can use tinyumbrella, but redsn0w gets the 4.1 SHSH blob from Cydia (which Cydia saves automatically for your convenience).

      This is supposedly supposed to work with the 4.3 firmware coming out soon so maybe you wont have to wait for long. Just make sure you have the blobs saved for 4.2.1 cause thats what it will use. Musclenerd said it wasnt too complicated to port it to the 4.3 b so we will see. As always a thank you goes out to all the devs involved in the jb scene.

      Kind of an ignorant and really unnecessary comment.
      And for the other part, it is for 4.2.1

      Um actually this is for 4.2.1 it just uses the monte way of jailbreaking. A way of tricking the boot than sliding in 4.2.1 at the last minute. It just uses the 4.1 firmware which you need the blobs for.

      Me too but I got lucky and got a refurbished previously jailbroken iPhone 4 that Cydia already had the blobs for.

      I agree it's taken a long time to get a jailbreak but I think we need to be mindful that
      the members of the dev team have a life outside of this and we are essentially receiving
      a much needed jailbreak free of charge and no work on our behalf.

      As an aside, I'm curious about how and if this will work for the iPad as there was no
      4.1 version. Will there be a separate jailbreak with a 3.2.2 Monte?

      For this people who have not saved their 4.1 blobs my understanding is that you cannot downgrade which means that a significant number of people will still not be able to jailbreak their idevice. with this final release.

      I could be mistaken, but greenpois0n RC5 may not rely upon having previosly saved shsh blobs and will also be untethered.

      I hope 4.2.1 can be jail broken and untethered but the release of 4.3 which is just around the corner. Furthermore, by releasing this jailbreak now, this will allow apple to provide a patch on the final version of the 4.3 release..

      Is it worth it to have possibly burn an exploit (I dont know if this is the case) to provide a jailbreak people will use for maybe 3 weeks until iOS 4.3 is released.

      Any comments?

      @ rickhi123 this way of jailbreaking cant be patched according to Musclenerd so it doesnt matter if its released now.

      face it folks, apple has stepped the game up big time

      there wont be an untethered for fresh 4.2.1, probably ever

      there PROBABLY wont be a 4.3 untethered when 4.3 is released

      and there is no soft unlock for 2.10 / 3.10 comming right away

      only light in the tunnell is CDMA WorkShop, a cdma flashing tool that is already flashing similar chipsets to the upcoming iphone 5 and verizon iphone (qualcomm?)

      so chances are the cdma iphones will get flashed fairly quick
      (cricket, ghettro pcs, probably NOT sprint)


      be greatful for what you can get and dont buy phones expecting there will be utilities readily available to jailbreak/unlock your phone

      From my understanding, the release of iOS 4.3 will take more than 3 weeks, this might not be because Apple isn't done with it within the time, but more because of the fight between the Dev team.

      Apple will without a doubt hold on releasing it for as long as possible.

      I think you are extremely wrong.
      The whole story is more about holding on current security holes than not having an untethered jailbreak available.

      Doesnt matter supposedly according to Muscle nerd this way cant be patched. I could be wrong though guess we will see.

      Wow! That is lucky! First I had heard of a jailbreaker scoring a previously jailbroken phone. You should play the lottery!
