  • Thomas says:

    does this work with the mc model 2g touch??

  • Juan F says:

    So, I updated my unlocked/jailbroken (Tmobile) 3G iphone to the final 4.1 version. And now I cant seem to unlock/jailbroke it back to normal. I use windows.. does this mean I have to wait to be able to use my phone again

  • Andre says:



    IOS:4.1 final
    can I jailbrake may iphone with Sn0wbreeze 2.0.1 , for unlock all operators?

  • melissa says:

    Can we use this version if we are running Windows?

  • Patrick says:

    I have an iPod Touch 2G. I tried to do everything in the right order, but when I open Redsn0w and try to select my current firmware, it says that it is unable to recognize the specific firmware. My iPod is restored to 4.01 and has nothing on it. And I downloaded the firmware right from you here. I did download a Windows version of RedSn0w from a different website, so would a Windows install need a different firmware? Or am I just doing something wrong?

  • David Cappon says:

    Hi, i have an iphone 8gb black, 3g, IOS 4.1, baseband 05.14.02 but im running windows, when its gonna be ready the redsnow 0.9.6 beta 1 for windows so i can jailbrake my iphone???

  • G says:

    You people. Posted before me. (Petrick and Melissa) This is Mac OSX only, as redsn0w hasn’t been updated on Windows.

    So no Melissa, as Windows uses .EXE and mac uses .APP (and usually these are archived in .DMG)

    Some people need to read. As for me, 19 Mins to DL the firmware. :-/

  • picowhi says:

    After completing the steps, redsn0w is still stuck saying “waiting for reboot”.

  • Thuan says:

    Jailbreaking was sweet but now I cannot access to the internet on Cydia, or Safari or Youtube. My iPhone display a message: “Hotspot login cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet.”

  • Jeremy says:

    my question is… why do i need iTunes 10? what does iTunes have to do with the actual jailbreaking process?

    i have successfully jailbroke 3 iPhones on Windows. i would like to see if this jailbreak works for 4.1 on my Mac but i have an older iBook G4 (OSX 10.3) and because it does not have Leopard on it iTunes 10 will not install.

    so once again, will having an older version of iTunes affect my jailbreak? or can i jailbreak it on my Mac and then use iTunes 10 on my PC to sync?

  • Yash says:

    I have downloaded iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3G from the above given link but there is no .ipsw file. Now what should I do?? Please someone guide me!

  • Micheal says:

    Listen, I have a serious problem : I have an ipod touch 2g and last month i updated to 4.1 and i jailbroke him with redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5. since that time i can’t play videos and i can’t go on the internet and i can’t turn him off!

    yesterday i tried to jailbreak him with redsn0w 0.9.6 beta 1 but my ipod touch can’t go in DFU mode and i can’t recover him via itunes


    (sorry for my bad englis, I’m from the Netherlands)

  • Lilactears says:

    Micheal, try reseting your ipod go to settings -> general -> reset -> erase all content and settings and then enter DFU mode, It should work since I had the same problem on iphone

  • Lilactears says:

    BTW I have an iphone 3g with iOS 4.1 and when I jailbreaked it my phone icon dissappeared and I couldn’t use the safari, does anyone know a good jailbreak for windows?

  • Ben Malin says:

  • Discoveryellow says:

    Something went wrong :(
    I have put the iPod in DFU and the redsn0w began it’s magic. The iPod flashed bright white redsn0w seemed to go on as it meant, but stuck on “Please wait while your device is being processed. Waiting for reboot” That’s it.
