Thread: Jailbreak with redsn0w on Vista with iPhone 3G

  1. #1
    Default Jailbreak with redsn0w on Vista with iPhone 3G
    Hi,

    I wonder if anyone can help me here ? I am trying to jailbreak my iPhone but I get so far and then the redsn0w app crashes on me.

    If you look at the steps here:

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.0.x Using RedSn0w (Windows)

    I get up to Step 9, the jailbreaking process starts and then it crashes.

    I also have tried setting up the properties of the redsn0w executable to run in Windows XP Compatability mode and this has not made a difference.

    Are there any tasks that I need to close before I start this process. It seems as though this process is being interuppted by something.

    Any ideas ? Greatly appreciated, I started at 11.30pm last night and gave up around 1.30 am

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I kept having the same problem redsn0w kept crashing on me thru the process like 5 times
    what I did was simply restart my pc and let it load and ran redsn0w and it worked.

    Just rejailbroke my 3G[S] a couple hours ago

    ok cool, will try that tonight, cheers. How are you finding your jailbroken iPhone ?

    I think it may be the fact that I am not holding the home button for a full 30 seconds, even though the redsn0w screen moves to say it is jailbreaking, i think I need to hold on to it for longer ?

    Another question, what happens if redsn0w is able to jailbreak a 3.1 iphone, how do i update to 3.1 in the first place ? Connect to iTunes ??

    I had the exact problem ... I tried everything about 10X I ended up just using my Windows XP Machine and it worked perfect.

    And you CAN NOT jailbreak 3.1 unless you have a MAC, Redsnow has NOT came out with a break as of yet only PWNAGE for Mac has broken it. But its all the DEV Team so we should see something shortly.
