PwnageTool & Redsn0w For iOS 4.3.3 Updated; Includes Bug Fix & Improvements

Jailbreak iOS 4 on iPhone 3GS

iPhone Dev team has released an updated version of PwnageTool and Redsn0w, which includes a fix for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 side switch vibration issue (only for iOS 4.3.3).

Dev team had released PwnageTool 4.3.3 and Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 for iOS 4.3.3 couple of days back that incorporates the untether jailbreak developed by iPhone hacking expert Stefan Esser.

Dev Team has provided the following information on their blog:

PwnageTool and redsn0w have been updated to include a fix for the iPhone3GS/i4 side switch vibration issue (only for 4.3.3!).  Thanks to @i0n1c for tracking this down (even though he doesn’t even have an iPhone!).

If you’re already jailbroken at 4.3.3 (by either redsn0w rc15 or custom IPSW), you can install this fix simply by running redsn0w rc16 over your existing 4.3.3 jailbreak. Just uncheck the “Install Cydia” option and check any other options you want.  The fix will be installed no matter what you’ve selected.  This is safe for even ultrasn0w unlockers to do (because redsn0w itself won’t update your baseband…only an iTunes stock IPSW update/restore will do that).

redsn0w rc16 has a few more improvements:  Windows 7 and Vista users should no longer need to set their CPU affinity…just run redsn0w as Administrator in XP compatiblity mode.  Also, the “verbose boot” option for old-bootrom iPhone 3GS has been fixed for 4.3.3 (remember: old-bootrom 3GS users can even have custom bootlogos that show right at power-up).

PwnageTool and Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 supports the following iOS devices for iOS 4.3.3:

iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone users who don’t care about unlocking are better off using Redsn0w as one doesn’t need to preserve baseband like iPhone users.

Redns0w 0.9.6rc16 can be downloaded from the following link:

PwnageTool is available only for Mac users and you can download it from one of the mirror sites:

If you’ve used Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15 or PwnageTool 4.3.3 then you can install the fix simply by running Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 over the iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak but remember to uncheck the “Install Cydia” option.
