    heres a second link or u could just type redsnow into google?!!!

  • Anggrian says:

    cheer up Jim (if you’re on 3G or 3GS) the dev-team said the unlock will be out before Sunday. I believe that what they just wrote recently: http://www.ultrasn0w.ca/2010/11/ultrasn0w-ios-421-unlock-this-week-eta.html

  • Anggrian says:

    that must be in recovery mode. If I were you I would try from the beginning to prevent flawed progress

  • Rene Descartes says:

    This knocks out the TV-Out functionality. What can I do to restore that feature?

  • picklejar12 says:

    Cydia isn’t working…any suggestions?

  • randall says:

    Was working but windows encountered problem with Redsn0w. Any suggestions?

  • jimbo says:

    to anyone having problems with the rebooting process on redsn0w. I had the same issue, always getting stuck in that phase. I ran the restore function on iTunes and then attempted the process again and it worked. I also had issues with the redsn0w b6 build, so I used the 4b build and it worked. I’m using the iPhone 3g, hope this might help.

  • Rtwinkie2 says:

    After running redsn0w 0.96b5 I have NO SIGNAL, no WIFI, nothing, nada, zip! So now what to do?

  • I_master says:

    After jailbreaking my ipod 2g, it hangs on reboot. it goes through the jailbreak process and hangs. (Apple boot screen)

  • i_Master says:

    I reinstalled the software again with cydia and it finally booted. But I have the same issue with my iphone 3gs running 6.15 baseband after installing with redsn0w.

  • John Dsouza says:

    YES, this method worked well(iPod Touch 2G)…here are the instructions that I followed;

    1. Downloaded iSO 4.2.1 from iTunes & Installed it.
    2. Downloaded iSO 4.2.1 from this site, copied it on the desktop.
    3. Downloaded RedSnow App from this site and Ran it.
    4. Patched the iSO from this site.
    5. Followed instructions from the RedSnow App.
    6. Done….Cydia was installed in the End!

    Thank you Red Sn0w! : D

  • Kj Mani Q says:

    what do yuu d when redsnow says waiting for reboot ?

  • Blake C. says:

    I successfully ran redsn0w, and got it to work. did it in like 5 minutes after I started it. But Cydia is a white icon and doesn’t do anything whenever I tap on it. I’m running on an iPod Touch 3G with 4.2.1 software installed. Any help?

  • Blake C. says:

    I’m currently attempting a re-run of redsn0w app on my iPod to see if that helps… What’s the worst that could happen, right?!

  • Captain says:

  • Eduardo077gochivas says:

  • Tdekune says:

    cydia has not yet released a public upgrade to this so you have to wait till they do, then it will work

  • Itachi says:

    My ass started itching for no reason…is this because of the jailbreak ? :S

  • Livazombie says:

    Followed everything as it says, Iphone 3g reboots and I see cydia on iphone however the version still say it is 4.2.1 and the modem firmware is still 05.15.04. I insert my sim card (tmobile) and it will not work. What am I missing? Should I be installign something else? The phone also still thinks the carrier is AT&T . . .

  • mel says:

    yeaa mine just sits there for hurs and doesnt do anything ):

  • Shadystat says:

    I have the same problem I insert my sim card says searching.. but after 5 min or so it says no service I even turned my phone off and back on still the same thing happens. have you found a solution to this problem?

  • Guest says:

    i did all of the above, but when the iphone reboot, the device enter the recovery mode

    can anyone help me please.

  • kdizzfsho says:

    This process worked absolutely flawlessly on my iPhone 3G. Ran across no problems whatsoever with anything from normal iPhone app use as well as with Cydia. I had problems with the redsn0w 0.9.6b6 method but no problems at all with this. Thanks a lot!

  • Janelley Belly says:

    how did it do it so fast mine is taking forever its stuck on loading the exploit with limerain or something its been 20 minutes

  • Pat L. says:

    Every time i put the firmware in for my itouch 2g (4.2.1) it asks me if my Device is MC or not. It is. But when i click the Yes button it tells me this version of Redsn0w doesn’t support th iPod Touch 2g MC Model yet, but in all the websites iv’e visited it has said that it is able to jailbreak my device. I checked and I did download the 0.9.6B4 version of Resn0w. I don’t know what i’m doing wrong…

  • Dcscrunch says:

    Cydia/Apps not working (tethered?)
    Step 1: Download Redsn0w and The iOS
    Step 2: Restore (from itunes) Shift-click the button and load your download iOS
    Step 3: Once done turn off itouch (keep plugged in) open Redsn0W go through the process (cydia is a must check) do the step process.
    Step 4: After everything is done turn it on and cydia will not work. what you do know is hold power+home until it turns completely off than back on again…after you do so…turn the itouch completely off again.
    Step 5: Open Reds0w again doing the same process but this time check “boot from tethered”…after this is complete again and is on click on cydia and bam…hope you can add the required sources as well =)
