  • 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.

      Apple still serves the 1.0 ipsw. I don't know why the team thinks this is some kind of revelation that you can still download 4.1.

      Did I say it wasn't? And a month is a long time to wait for a JB if that's what you're saying.

      This may be one noobs humble opinion but it appears that Apple is winning the "cat and mouse" game. It seems like forever since 4.2.1 came out and yet an untethered jailbreak for most idevices still isn't readily available. Don't get me wrong, I know Devs work hard but it seems that Apple's anti jailbreaking measures are working to a degree.

      I'm currently on 4.1 right now, the only blobs stored on Cydia for me are 4.2.1, is there a possible way for me to get the 4.1 blobs at this point?

      I think it's more about the dev team holding out on their breaks now. No need to release things too early and make them unusable for 4.3.
      You always want to make sure things are released at the right time.. if they would release their things for 4.2.1 now, the holes would most likely have been resolved by the time 4.3 (final) is released to the public.

      I totally agree with you on this point, people are extremely ungrateful towards the dev team.

      People have to realize that these guys do all of this for free and all they ever expect is a simple thanks. But all they get from people (/douches) are complaints on how slow they are making things work.

      If we don't start thanking the dev teams what most likely will happen is that they will get sick of doing it and quit releasing things to us.
