Thread: Go from tethered to untethered jailbreak

is a discussion within the

iPad Jailbreaking

I currently have my iPad jailbroken tethered on 4.2.1 with redsnow. If I run the new greenpois0n will it make my iPad jailbroken untethered or will it mess things up?

    That's what I was wondering. Is GP still Mac only?

    I can confirm it too. I ran GP RC5 for windows Over my existing Redsn0w tethered 4.2.1 JB and it worked ike a charm. It was a little finicky, it took three tries before it was successful. Nonetheless I am typing this from my now un-tethered iPad on 4.2.1 . How awesome is that? Kudos to pod2g, p0sixninja and all of the rest of the crew that made this happen! I'm glad that a little wager between two fellow hāx0rs has resulted in such awesomeness!
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Imahottguy, what happened the first two times you tried it?

    Mine reboots to a screen that says:
    Unable to find fs_mount
    Unable to find fs_unmount
    Unable to find fs_load_file
    Greenpois0n initialized

    Then it just stays at that screen.

    The first two times I tried, I had my ipad in DFU mode before opening GP. So, GP got to the point where it was rebooting my iPad from DFU mode, and then failed- no text on my screen at all. The third time, I started with my device connected to the PC and turned off. I got the same text on my screen that you reported, but it worked anyway. I don't know if it matters, but I set it to run in compatibility mode for Win XP SP3 with Admin privileges. Another idea: try redownloading, from a different mirror, the GP for win zip file? I hope it works out for yous guys!

    How do you know "it worked anyway?" Did you reboot your iPad and get GP logo?

    No you wont get gp logo if you untethered your idevice from redsnow to gp jailbreak...it just show apple logo.and there is no loader apps on springboard but you still have cydia..the different is you can turn off your device and turn on it again without have to connect to pc...yeah thats happen to me..i just try it one time and successful untethered my devices..

    Thanks. But, when I turn my iPad off and turn it on again the icons in springboard are smaller and the dock size is shorter than normal. Fortunately, it goes back to normal after respring.

    Wow thats weird...maybe when you use tehered jailbreak before, you download cydia apps like winterboard or something?mybe that cause the problem..i think the last way you can do to fix this is just restore to official os 4.2.1 if this prob still bothered you...

    zomg, giant iPhone/iPod touch mode? Anyone? This cannot really be fixed, a respring takes care of it. How do I know that it worked anyway? I was able to reboot without tethering my device to a computer.

    In my case reboot is not the same with power off and on. My iPad was able to reboot without tethering either but the unfixed problem is still what if the battery runs out? should we redefine what the untethered jailbreak is?

    It worked, just takes awhile, got it after a second try, switch capability mode to XP SP2, n ran as administrator.. Worked like a charm right over redsnow.. Even did a 3GS.. I think only the iPhones/itouches show greenpoison as the boot logo, not the iPad.. Correct me if I'm wrong..
