Thread: Redsn0w installing but no cydia

  1. #1
    Default Redsn0w installing but no cydia
    Hello,
    I installed redsn0w a few days back and it worked smoothly. I then managed to really hose the iphone so I restored the iphone with my back up and proceeded to do the redsn0w thing again.

    It worked, though it took long time to reboot (the app said done while the iphone was still rebooting), and when i got back to the original screen I see no sign of cydia.

    I did this twice today yet no cydia.


    Any suggestions?
    Thank you
    Ssshi

    Check the second screen on your phone. Cydia's icon is on page 2 after a new jailbreak.

    I am experiencing the same issue, although there is no cydia icon on any page.

    I checked all the screens. No familiar cydia.
    I should also point out that I never saw a Pineapple sign(a pineapple running).

    Does the ipsw file get modified? I should then download it again.
    I tried it and i get a "Downloading Jailbreak Data" and finally reboots but no cydia.

    Regards

    Yeah, I've jailbroken many iphones, this is my first Ipod. I'm fimiliar with the step, and the processs' that take place. But none of this looked similar. I got the downloading jailbreak data, but no signs of it afterwards.

    Default apple....
    just got the same thing...
    no coincidence that apple just blocked 3gs for 3.0?

    there isnt an "official" devteam 3.1 JB yet so maybe they are linked?

    Damn You Steve Jobs....

    Aha, I (like a newbie) upgraded to iPhone 3.1 and it is well known( not to me) that redsn0w won't work with that installed. I'm currently downgrading to iPhone 3.0.1 and hope things will work. Let us see.
    (See this website How to Downgrade iPhone OS 3.1 to 3.0 for iPhone 2G 3G 3GS | iPhone)

    (I got the running pineapple)

    I was hasty in my excitement. There is the spinning time symbol during "Installing Application Bundles" (running pineapple logo,blue bar about 75% complete) and then reboots with the "Connect to itunes" logo.

    I'm not spending time on this anymore. Lets see if redsn0w works on my 3.1 iphone in future.

    Why was was eager to upgrade? The 18 hours with a jailbroken iphone was heaven.
    Regards
    Ssha

    Steps followed

    1.Downloaded the 3.0.1 ipsw
    2. Install via itunes, got 1015 error, was told to ignore it.
    3. Ran redsn0w using 3.0 ipsw
    4. got the above symptoms
    5. gave up

    Heh,
    I couldnt give up. thank god for google and youtube.

    0) Started with an iphone running 3.1
    1) Follow this chaps instructions to downgrade to 3.0
    YouTube - koi2281's Channel

    (download ipsw 3.0 not 3.0.1 (maybe the latter works for you but not for me))
    (on windows, i didn't do this on Mac, since i couldnt find Quickpwn for mac)

    3. Install redsn0w.

    Got my cydia.

    There is quite a big difference between 3.0.1 and 3.1.
    Which is why if you have upgraded you can't jailbreak.
    Once I find a way to either JB or a workaround. I will let you know.
    But for now you just have to downgrade or wait....

    With regards to
    "DFU saving the day"
    it isn't a case of dfu saving anything. The software just isn't there yet so we have to wait.

    Any major questions PM me and I'll do my best too help
