Redsn0w keeps crashing no matter what beta
Hi I've been spending countless hours researching and figuring out why my redsn0w keeps crashing. I'm trying to jailbreak my cousins iPhone 3G running on version 4.2.1. I've tried running redsn0w 0.9.6 b2, b3, b5, and b6. I ran as an administrator. Everything works out until the last part after I put the phone in DFU mode and the phone starts up with the jailbreaking screen, it freezes and redsn0w closes. Please help!
I'm running on Windows Vista by the way.
Are you running on a multicore machine? If so, you will need to set CPU affinity for the redsn0w process in task manager after launching it but before starting the jailbreak process. If so, do this:
1) Run redsn0w
2) Open Task Manager (hit ctrl-alt-del, pick 'Start Task Manager')
3) Switch to the 'Processes' tab and locate the redsn0w.exe file in the list.
4) Right click on it, and pick 'Set Affinity'
5) Uncheck everything other than "CPU 0" and hit OK
6) Retry jailbreaking.
Note you'll need to do this any time you open redsn0w.
