Thread: Trying to JB my iPhone

Well I've been trying to JB my iPhone 4 but I'll get to everything and when it gets to the reboot part on redsnow my phone just loads up as normal and the redsnow app just sits there saying waiting to reboot. What can I be doing wrong

What fw version are you on and which jailbreak tool did you use?

I've been trying to JB my iPhone 4 but I'll get to everything and when it gets to the reboot part on redsnow my phone just loads up as normal and the redsnow app just sits there saying waiting to reboot. What can I be doing wrong. Using 5.0.1 (9A405), Redsnow .0.9.10B3.

Run redsn0w as administrator.
Open task manager.
Right-click Redsn0w in processes.
Select set Affinity.
Checkmark CPU0 only.
Exit task manager.
Try JB again.
Before doing this, do a restore on your phone to 5.0.1 again just to be safe.

I know how to restore but, I don't know what you mean by
open task manager"......where is that? Sorry.....but I need a step by step. I'm a newbie at this.

Control+alt+delete on Windows to open task manager on your computer.
That's pretty much as step-by-step as it can go.
Opening task manager is more of a computer knowledge than it has anything to do with iPhones. If you're on a Mac, I'm actually not sure how to do this. :/ perhaps through activity monitor.

this is the same problem as a few threads down. i'm having the same problem. bigliquid350 said he had to point redsnow to ipsw. how do i do that? the tutorial i saw from another site said just put in dfu mode and hit jailbreak on redsnow. i tried to run redsnow and all that happens is it starts my phone up from dfu mode and nothing runs on it. i am on a mac and tried to do what i.Annie said through activity monitor but nothing happened when i right click. this is sooo frustrating. greenpoison and jailbreakme were so much easier. any help would be greatly appreciated. about to give up and just hope greenpoison or jailbreakme someday get updated to work again. thanks

When on redsn0w click extras, then click on Select ipsw and point it to the ipsw fileIf my post was good, click the button in my post
New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

Just be sure to have the ipsw downloaded and saved to a location you can easily find.

SOLUTION TO ALL:
1. buy a mac
2. download redsn0w and jailbreak
4. destroy your pc, piss on it, and send it back to the manufacturer
5. live a happy life.

After using a basic flip phone for 4 years, just bought the Verizon iPhone 4 literally yesterday. Confirmed working by specifying the proper IPSW in redsn0w's "Extras" menu.
- Verizon CDMA iPhone 4
- Pre-loaded with 5.0.1
- used iPhone3,3_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw
