    Default [update] redsn0w 0.9.6b3


    Update #3: (Warning: if you use the ultrasn0w unlock, please read no further…this doesn’t apply to you yet!) We’ve made some updates to redsn0w to make it easier for jailbreak developers (and tinkerers) to get their programs ready for 4.2.1. As noted above, the public version of Cydia (and MobileSubstrate too!) is not 4.2.1-compatible. redsn0w will now let you install your own custom bundles independent of Cydia (the bundle can actually be Cydia if you’ve compiled it on your own). These bundles can be up to 15MB in size, and should be in the form of a gzip-compressed tar file.

    The new redsn0w 0.9.6b3 is available at:

    * OS X Download
    * Windows Download

    It’s very important that you get the file permissions and ownerships right in your custom redsn0w bundles. To give you a practical example of such a bundle, here’s one that includes OpenSSH, OpenSSL, and the basic apt installer programs:

    * SSH bundle Download

    redsn0w has also been updated to recognize the 4.2.1GM IPSWs. *However*, as noted above, the 4.2.x jailbreak is not yet untethered for most devices! That means until someone like @comex comes up with a way to untether it, you must use redsn0w (or a similar utility) to boot your device into a jailbroken 4.2.1 state. (The only exceptions to this are the iPhone3G, non-MC iPod touch 2G, and old-bootrom iPhone3GS. redsn0w will jailbreak those untethered!)

    With the above redsn0w and SSH bundle, jailbreak developers and tinkerers can jailbreak and SSH into their 4.2.1 devices, provided they’ve done a tethered boot (using redsn0w’s “Just boot tethered right now” option).

    Note: The Cydia that’s included in 0.9.6b3 is the same one as in 0.9.6b2, and so it will *not* work on 4.2.1. Don’t try installing it on 4.2.1! Instead, use the SSH bundle, or compile Cydia on your own. If you’re familiar with the apt utilities, you can use “apt-get” to install many programs from the command line. Be sure to do “apt-get update” first to refresh your sources!

    PLEASE CONSIDER THIS AN ADVANCED TOPIC!! It’s not meant for the masses because it involves rather nerdy things like command lines and tar files.
    But for those who know how to use this new redsn0w feature, have fun!

    As with all of the implementations of geohot's limera1n exploit, if you end up at a white screen and it says that it failed to boot tethered, or you get a 1601 error when restoring custom IPSW - this means that the limera1n exploit failed to run properly.

    The most common reason for this is some part of iTunes is still running and is interfering with the exploit.

    General solution - restart your computer and try again. Also try a different USB cable and port.

    should I use this redsn0w version to jailbreak 4.2b3?
    a friend of mine has accidentally updated a newboot factory unlocked 3gs to 4.2.1 and we only have 4.2b3 and 4.2.1 SHSH's. I was thinking about downgrade it to 4.2b3 and try to jailbreak it; it should be an untethered jailbroken afaik, am I right?

    Try again for a 4.1 SHSH, remove any reference to Cydia in your hosts file - turn off the option to check Check/save SHSH at Cydia and try TinyUmbrella 4.1.13 (i've had a bit more success with 4.1 SHSH via that version)

    The iPhone dev team have not released an untethered jailbreak for 4.2b3 on a new bootrom 3GS - so your idea is not going to work.

    Plus, yes beta iOS does expire.

    hosts is clear and no luck with TyniUmbrella 4.1.13... I suspect Apple isn't signing 4.1 SHSH anymore :\

    I suspected that, the only reason I suggested you try was that http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=SHSH changed to say that 4.1 SHSH were no longer being signed (from the day 4.2.1 came out) then later this page was updated to say that the SHSH was still being signed.

    I have just tested with an iPhone 4, 3GS and an iPad 3G, only got 4.2.1 SHSH - querying apple directly.

    So it is now impossible to get a 4.1 SHSH or a 4.2b3 SHSH or a 3.2.2 SHSH (for the iPad)

    Yesterday I got a 4.2b3 SHSH for 3Gs, but it seems pretty useless

    Maybe not, if comex can stop being a teenage student with a real life for a bit and spend some time kernel hacking, then maybe this 4.2b3 SHSH will represent an untethered jailbreak for those who have it.

    We don't know yet - but there is a reason that Cydia and TinyUmbrella were updated to backup a beta SHSH (normally they don't bother saving beta SHSH). We will eventually find out why.
