    Yep, it works great on 3G!

    Only little problem though is that Appsynch 4.0 won’t install from cydia. Hopefully hackulous will come up with an update in the next couple of days.

    The new 4.1 upgrade is now available – I’ve done the upgrade and it seems to work a treat. As a 3GS user I was miffed that I could not get the HDR upgrade but I’ve solved that one too.. here’s the blog…

  • Ashley

    Hi,
    I successfully Jailbroke My Ipod Touch 2nd Generation non-MC Model with redsnow. But on accident I updated my firmware to 4.0.2, and my ipod is now stuck in recovery mode. When I try to restore it, it wont allow me too. So now I’m on a computer that does not have itunes, and I’m waiting for it too download as I type. I am downloading itunes 9.0.2, because I didn’t know anything about 10.0.2. Can anyone please help me. My laptop hard drive crashed and my itouch is all i have left. PLEASE S.O.S

  • Rename zip to ipsw

    If you have downloaded Ios 4 Final Version and it arrives at your computer as a ZIP file then right-click on the file, select RENAME and change ZIP to IPSW. Hope this helps. Did my head in for a few hours.

  • jace

    Mine is stuck on the “Please wait while your device is being processed” screen, on 4.0.2. anyone know what to do?

  • Discoveryellow

    Got stuck on “Please wait while your device is being processed. Waiting for reboot”
    Is my iPod touch bricked now?

  • candidness

    hi everyone… i know it would seem like it’s stocked to the processing mode. but patience is the key. don’t be tempted to press the power button while it’s on processing mode or you’ll mess the whole setup. just wait because it takes a while for the processing to be done. hope this helps ;)

  • john

  • Guy

  • Off Your Wall

    where the hell do I find a download for Redsn0w 0.95b5-5?

  • Savreen Mahil

    Samee!!!!

  • Savreen Mahil

    Whats bricked?

  • THESolver

    Ok guys, here’s the solution; just follow these steps.It worked for me.

    When iphone/ipod is stuck & redsn0w is on “Waiting for reboot” & unplugging & plugging doesn’t work, try this (Surely – under your responsibility):* Leave the redsn0w as it is and OPEN ANOTHER INSTANCE OF REDSNOW. (FOR MAC:go to your redsn0w application; right click–> duplicate –> now you have a copy–> now you have just to do like you did before.* Browse for the same file, & check the same checkbox’s as before* Your iPhone/ Ipod is still turned off * Follow the steps for turning it on in DFU mode* Your Iphone will reboot 1-3 times, at the? second it reboots and shows a white screen click CANCEL in second redsn0w!!
