  • 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.

      So I am assuming Apple MUST release 4.3 BEFORE the Verizon iPhone hits the public... Correct?

      Why? The Verizon iPhone is shipping with v4.2.5.

      Thankfully I had my SHSH blobs saved on 4.1 before my iPhone crashed and was stuck in the Apple logo boot-loop!

      I guess 4.1 is as far as most of us will get in terms of a jailbreak.

      Enjoy what you've got people!

      I really wish people would stop banging on about "when will there be a jailbreak" "what about people who got a new phone with 4.2.1"

      There already is a jailbreak for this and it works great. Yeah, it's tethered. So what? It still enables me to do everything an untethered jailbreak does except turn my phone on and off on a whim. BUT, I have silent mode and airplane mode and like most people in the western world, I have easy access to electricity. In the last month that I have been tethered, I've ran out of power once. I fell asleep with RemoteTap open while I was drunkenly playing Pokerstars.

      If and when an untethered JB comes I'll be lining up with the rest of you. If it doesn't, I'll continue having a jailbroken phone until it does.

      So if you can't figure out how to jailbreak a phone, don't dump all over the guys who can. I don't want to speculate how many dollars and HOURS Apple have put into making their software unbreakable and a smaller team of UNPAID people are fighting an uphill battle.

      Cut them some slack and be grateful for anything you get for free.

      Keep up the great work dev-team. Thanks.

      All you and others are doing is rationalizing.

      4.2 can be jailbroken untethered the team chooses not to release it.............Who says they have the right to decide for all of us?
      Pretty sure if they make it, they choose when to release it...LOL

      How many times do they need to confirm this? This is the 4th time by my count. I think we all get the picture. Just let us know when it's actually ready for the general public.

      I'm happy that it's "Near"

      I find attitudes needs to be checked at times, we talk a lot abut community and sharing........... then its time to share the JB with us before I collect SS.
      So they should just go ahead and release beta code so people can go and brick their phones by your reasoning? There's quite a difference between tethered and untethered so if you'd prefer the dev team to release it and make your phone unstable or worse, then tell them you'd love to beta test it. I'll wait for the dev team to properly test the untethered JB so my phone works.

      The people on here whining about them taking so long will be the first ones to whine when the beta code bricks their phone.

      They are worried that Apple will grab it and "Fix" the exploit in 4.3
      They have other exploits for 4.3. Like I said, if you want it that bad, jump on Twitter and tell them you want the Redsn0w 0.9.7 beta and that you won't hold them liable for f'ing up your phone. Actually I'm sure the beta is out there if you Google it.

      Sorry must of missed that one. I don't recall anyone saying it's "ready", only that it can be done.


      Actually I did the lifting for you, http://www.gadgetsdna.com/download-r...097beta6/8054/
      There you can download it and read about the issues they've been having. It still needs the 4.2b3 IPSW but it works.

      That I can agree with. While it's good to know they're working on it, we don't need an article with every Tweet. I already follow most of them.

      So if I lost my blobs from 4.1 then, there is no point in even trying an untethered JB for 4.2.1 (or will it still work w/out the use of backed-up blobs)?
    1. emoticonartist's Avatar
      emoticonartist -
      Ah - but I saved my blobs on Cydia when I had a 3G! But now that I moved to an Ip4, I guess the blobs won't work on the new phone (perhaps?) I'm still trying to figure out the whole blobs thing as it seemed so much easier to JB phones back in the 4.0 and earlier days.

      That would be correct. Hence the problem I face. I planned on getting the i4 around March when my contract is up but by then either the rumors will start about the new phone coming during the summer and I would not have the blobs saved for a new phone unless the tools that are released dont require the use of blobs.

      So I'm stuck in keep 3GS/get i4/wait for i5 limbo. Decisions, decisions!!

      There's a lot I can "do" but its not something I should if I can't do it right. So I'm not going to tell the world I can rebuild a transmission, yes I could take it apart and put it back together but will it work?

      So logically I cannot rebuild a transmission

      Can they or can't they JB untethered?

      I guess I just think one story of that its possible would be better then "Untethered JB by Christmas" Then youtube videos of untethered JB and numerous official stories on MMYI about untethered JB........
      Yes, they can JB untethered, they've posted videos. Right now they're probably smoothing out any kinks before they release it so that everything works right on the phone. They're also trying to figure out which exploit to use so when the new OS comes out they can give us a faster JB.

      I do agree that there are way too many articles coming out though lol.
