    Default redsnOw for non intel?

    Hi, I have read the stickies, which would explain why I can't open redsnOw, on my 1mac G5 non intel.
    The sticky says "working on it".
    is there a version of redsnOw I can use, released yet, or should I just go to another computer?
    Trying to unlock a 2G with 3.1.2 accidently loaded.
    suggestions welcome.
    I have gone from a 3G BACK to a 2G because the range is better (rural), signal stronger, battery life longer, speed is not a priority, go figure...

    thanks in advance.

    just use jailbreakme.com then install bootneuter then unlock
    Get the latest info for NoAccSplash Here
    Currently it should work on iOS 4.x - 6.x
    If you'd like to help extend its functionality, the source is also available.

    Use blackra1n for initial jailbreak then restore with a custom IPSW with pwnagetool. I know blackra1n works on ppc, think pwnagetool still works on ppc also.

    If you take the previous suggestion of jailbreakme and bootneuter then you need to take care to disable auto lock when running bootneuter. You also need a way to bypass the "slide for emergency" screen to use jailbreakme, this is not so easy to do on the 2G as they are much more restrictive about which SIM cards can be used to legitimately activate them.

    thanks for the great ideas, OK so I have run blackra1n, at what point do I restore using a new ISPW, before itunes restores I suspect?
    pwnage has failed about 5 times now.
    thanks again.

    Default iTunes blocks

    iTunes will block restoring the custom firmware...so, if you have not already, edit hosts file at /etc/hosts (if I am not mistaken). Add the following line to the end of that file:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    Also, if you have not seen before, you should read this page:

    Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)

    That will also give you a more in depth explanation of why you need to add that line to your hosts file.

    This is untrue... the custom IPSW patches out the checks for SHSH, that happens on the iPhone.


    So it doesn't matter if Apple returns or does not return a SHSH when you restore with custom IPSW.

    For restores, SHSH is ONLY important if you want to restore stock/original IPSW.

    There are other uses for SHSH signed files - for example making a recovery ramdisk - like msft.guy's ssh ramdisk for example.

    So yes it is important to retrieve and retain your SHSH for the oldest iOS version possible

    I appreciate you trying to respond to threads but please ensure you have your facts straight.

    ok...sorry. I was under the impression that the ipsw file didn't have anything to do with that, outside of being correct or not. I was under the belief that it all had to do with iTunes itself. Thank you for correcting me. That said, I also knew for certain that that process itself(changing the hosts file that way) is basically harmless to the end user, so I knew it wouldn't hurt for him to have tried that.

    Done correctly editing the hosts file to point gs.apple.com to cydia is generally beneficial to the user.

    Now that tinyumbrella sets this entry for you automatically - I think this is the best approach. Every iPhone/iPad/iPod touch/apple tv owner should run tinyumbrella as soon as they receive their device even if they never plan to jailbreak.

    I'm reluctant to recommend people directly edit their hosts file as it is possible to break some networking by incorrectly modifying the hosts file. Mostly this occurs if you remove the 127.0.0.1 entry on older windows versions.

    Also on modern operating systems often have other ways to achieve this and have relegated the hosts file to a legacy method (this is the case with recent versions of os x)
