Redsn0w To Jailbreak iOS 4.1 For iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G For Windows Users Released

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3G - Redsn0w

The iPhone Dev Team had released a beta version of Redsn0w for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 couple of weeks back but it was only for Mac users.

They have just released the beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 for Windows users as well.

It uses the pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit and not the SHAtter exploit that was discovered by pod2g so it can be used to jailbreak only iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G.

They have posted the following update on their blog for Windows users:

Any Windows users seeing “Waiting for reboot” for too long (more than 20 seconds or so), please try “shaking” the JB process by unplugging then replugging your USB cable (while letting redsn0w continue to run).  Also, try using a USB port “closer” to your computer (as opposed to on your monitor or behind another hub).  We’re still tweaking the Windows flow and so any feedback you can provide will help!

If you want to unlock your iPhone then do NOT use Redsn0w. Redsn0w will NOT hactivate or unlock your iPhone 3G. We suggest you use Sn0wbreeze as it protects the baseband and then use Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone 3G after you have successfully updated and jailbroken iOS 4.1.

Chronic Dev team is planning to release greenpois0n – a jailbreak tool for iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad.

Please remember that jailbreaking your iPhone may void its warranty and hence proceed with caution.

You can download Redsn0w using the download link provided by Dev team at the bottom of their post.

Mac users can checkout our how-to guide to jailbreak iOS 4.1 using Redsn0w for iPhone 3G Users. We will also publish a guide for Windows users shortly.

Please don’t forget to let us know how it goes.

    What about 3Gs users. Who the hell still uses an archaic 3G


    Soon yours will be archaic, there are still many users who have 3G so shut the fxxk up

  • Akaki

    agreed, my gf uses it, soon ill turn it into google phone 🙂
    but y cursing ? 😉

  • Shane

    Is os 4.1 fast on 3G now?

  • Mackie

    If you have a 3G iPhone then keep it at 3.1.2 or 3.1.3. It is not worth it to upgrade to any iOS4.

  • Mac

    Yeah im on 3GS too, but we just gotta b patient. Nd 3G aint old at all. I mean its still good. Just be patient.

  • Ray

    Is it me or is the 3Gs the only phone Apple has made that is unbreakable? There are all kinds of jailbreaks for 2G, 3G and even 4G but none that will work on the 3Gs. Why is that?

  • Vince

    The only reason why you cant JB your 3GS is because you updated it! All my friend's 3GS are jailbroken and will only update on sunday when I'll be telling them to update and preserve their baseband through the new JB (most of them rely on the unlock)… I personnally own an i4 since the launch in Canada and it's jailbroken because I didnt do any update since I have it, new i4s have to wait till sunday.

  • Vince

    BTW I dont get why they even bothered loosing their time to prepare this new Redsn0w version since we've been able B 3G and IPT2 with sn0wbreeze for 3 weeks!?

  • Vince

    4.1 is way better than 4.0 but not as fast as 3.1.2 (although I now prefer 4.1 to 3.1.2 on my 3G but I dont use it much since I bought my i4)

  • Ray

    Actually I have a 3Gs that's on iOS 3.0.1 and never updated past that. I'd like to be able to update my phone to the new iOS 4.1 and jailbreak, but that seems unlikely.

  • Mitch

    This update doesnt work for 3g. My wifi doesnt work and I am missing my phone app

  • me

    what about iphone 2g?

  • rocku24_7

    I like that name (i4 = iPhone4) i hope it gets popular. I have a 3G its till going great and alway JB-able which is cool no long wait.

  • albend

    I have a bricked iPhone 3gs. It currently has 4.0 and its unlocked at the moment. Is there a way I can unbrick it and still have the unlockable baseband? ps. I don't have shsh saved in cydia 🙁

  • albend

    2g can not be updated to iOS 4.0 or greater

  • tim
