  • Redsn0w 0.9.11b1 Released


    As we reported just earlier this week, MuscleNerd was working on an update for redsn0w that would allow iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and The new iPad (A5/A5X) users to downgrade their firmware if they had their SHSH blobs saved. iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users have the ability to downgrade as low as iOS 5.0.1 and The new iPad users have the ability to downgrade as low as iOS 5.1. A4 users have been able to downgrade since the dawn of time due to a shiny bootrom exploit.

    Jailbreakers with devices that pre-date the iPad2 will always be able to downgrade (with SHSH blobs) to previous firmware versions due to geohot’s limera1n exploit, which allows us to bypass the restrictions that Apple places on restores. But until now, that ability has been limited to those older devices (if you have an older device and don’t know how to do that, check the popular tutorial sites or ask in the comments below).

    Starting with redsn0w version 0.9.11b1, those with newer devices (iPad2, iPad3, and iPhone4S) can join the downgrade fun too! In a radical departure from previous versions of redsn0w, it now directly supports restoring IPSWs to your device. The first use of this new feature implements a hack that allows A5 downgrades without a bootrom-level exploit.
    Today, the new version of redsn0w that MuscleNerd promised has been released, allowing A5 iOS device users to join in on downgrading their firmware. MuscleNerd says that the new downgrading process doesn't require a bootrom exploit. The version, dubbed redsn0w 0.9.11b1 is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows. If you are running redsn0w 0.9.11b1 in Windows, it is highly recommended that you run the software in administrator mode by right-clicking on the icon and clicking, “Run As Administrator.” The download links for both of the new redsn0w versions can be found below:

    The new feature allowing A5 iOS device users to downgrade their firmware can be found under Extras>Even More>Restore from the redsn0w navigation menu. To use this new feature to downgrade your A5 device, you must have your SHSH blobs saved. For example, if you want to downgrade your iPhone 4S to iOS 5.0.1, you must have your iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs saved. Apple is no longer signing iOS 5.0.1, so if you haven't saved them already then you won't be able to save them now. Apple also has the ability to patch this downgrading method in a future firmware update, so take advantage of it while you can.

    Another warning that the iPhone Dev-Team makes us aware of is since the new downgrade measure updates the iOS firmware before downgrading, it will update your baseband. For this reason, if you are relying on an unofficial iPhone unlock, do not use this new downgrade method until a workaround can be found. If you used the SAM technique (now patched by Apple) to unlock your iPhone, then you can use this new downgrading method without losing your unlock.

    One last warning from the iPhone Dev-Team is since the new version of redsn0w is built with a ton of new code, they recommend using the more stable redsn0w 0.9.10b8b unless you plan to be taking advantage of the new downgrading feature. This will give them some time to work out the bugs. There is no reason to run this new version of redsn0w over your existing jailbreak because there are no improvements to the jailbreak in the latest version of redsn0w.

    If you are ready to finally have the freedom to downgrade your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or The new iPad, then you’ll definitely want to download this new redsn0w release. Be sure to thank the iPhone Dev-Team for this amazing news!

      More likely it was a recon which had already had its blobs save and they were the ones that were used.

      If the phone is a reconditioned phone (ie - pre-owned) it is quite possible that the previous owner had saved the blobs on Cydia and it was the blobs saved by the previous owner that were used.

      It is not possible to use the blobs from another phone.

      Ooooh that is very possible...ok now answer this.... Why is my old 4Ss euid the same as the swapped one? Like I said I saved the blobs from my old 4S I did a restore from when I backed up my old 4S to my new one...and ever since then the euid has been the same I forgot to mention I stitched from local because remote wouldn't work for me.. It took 3 tries the first 2 kept saying something about blobs not matching device or something ...also I tried to save my 5.1.1 blobs and it said it was too late it wouldn't let me the only blobs that it would recognize was 5.1 I put it in restore mode also on redsn0w and said 4S not supported yet...oh yea and there was like 2 times where it would do the downgrade process load file systems and everything it would finish but I wouldn't get any type of confirmation my phone would just be stuck in restore mode I tried to update on iTunes but it gave me an error about device not eligible for update..I used redsn0 w to update back to 5.1.1 that's when I noticed that the euid on my new 4S was the same as the blobs saved on my Mac...also the name of my iPhone is the same name as one of the blobs "HustlePhone" because after re updating to 5.1.1 I restored to backup on iTunes and that was from my old 4S

      no 2 iphones have the same EUID, that is impossible, are you sure they didnt just bring your old 4s into the backroom, did their "magic" and bought you out a "seemingly" new one, but was actually the same one you bought it?

      That was most likely the case, which is why you were able to restore again, because its the same phone

      But the one I returned I ripped the digitizer cable on top of that when they returned it they brought me back a iPhone with effin dirt along the sides the. He tried to say they don't come off the line like that...I got mad and said check the effin cameras I been standing ere for 2 minutes after just receiving I was like look my hands aren't dirty (good thing I used their sanitizer before I handled the phone so I made them go back there and they brought a new one from the back in a small black plastic box with a white sticker label wrapped around it... They had to break the seal to open the box

      Maybe they're magicians and did their "sleight of hands" to make your old 4s appear in a sealed box??

      Something bout this doesnt add up, and I should know, I'm a mathematician
