  • 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.

      Cydia wouldn't be Cydia without geohotz and the rest of the jailbreak team etc.... Heh, I am pretty much sure they making a commission from the applications. That's why they always delay it, it's about money...nothing is free in this world not even water ... I rest my case.

      They use donated devices and some devs do take donations. Some use there own out of pocket money from the regular jobs they have. They do not make money off of cydia apps unless they made themselves and sold it in cydia. So yeah most do it basically for free. Most arent in it for the Money they like doing it and it's a hobby.

      Any iPhone 3G using iOS 4.x or higher uses blobs ( software signed ). The 3GS uses hardware signed blobs.

      I love how people automatically go into "defense mode" over a comment.

      and stop complaining....you'll get a untethered jb when a dev releases one. Just use tethered...its just as a good and very stable if you use redsn0w

      Oh, dear. You should just keep your mouth shut about comments on the first page. Tethered is not nearly as good as untethered, one day you'll see why.

      Download TinyUmbrella for 4.2.1, connect via USB cable then save your blobs

      Yes. You can only use them on the device you saved the blobs.

      edit: why do they wait for the next iOS 4.x to come out? So Apple don't patch it?
      Just imagine Apple making it automatically updating on connect

      Tethered is great! You work for 12 hours without a break, you have a tethered Jb and 6 hours into working you get a call from the boss......oops something happened and the baseband gets dumped and the phone reboots........oh sorry now the JB is gone and your phone is a mess, but hey people on MMYI thinks thats great and since its an Iphone, you should accept that now your piece of crap phone is THE BEST ( yes this has happened to me in the past for real thats why no tethered JB for me)

      OMG the logic, the logic on these boards...........
      Lol.

      I have lots to add about the time it's taking the dev team to make untethered, how one guy did it in less than 10 days, how it hasn't worked on windows for months, the broken promise to have it here by Christmas, etc... But I won't say anything about any of that, for fear of inciting mindless and short-sighted criticism from a lot of people on here :/

      I didn't think so. The other guy told him to just back up on TU and he'd get it. And I didn't think it was possible.

      My only other thought is... Quit complaining an actually add something. Why don't you all come up with an untethered break if your so good.

      You kids crack me up. All complaints and no contribution. They "devs" owe you nothing. So get over yourself and deal with what you have

      They owed us a promise for an untethered jailbreak by Christmas. What is your contribution? We have valid points and reasons to be frustrated.

      Im not complaining about a jailbreak so I don't need to make one. I contribute just fine, but I don't complain like a child about things I can't control. And if you whine like a kid, you shall be labeled as one.

      If the devs said " by Christmas I'll give every jailbreaker a million dollars" should we hold them to it. Maybe we can sue. No cause they give us a service they provide for FREE. so as I said get over it. Freaking crybabies.

      FYI I'm tethered as well!!

      That was my bad, auto correct did untethered instead
