I knew they were up to something… Some great news coming from the head of the Dev Team, MuscleNerd announced that they are working on releasing an update to the famous RedSn0w, the fast jailbreak method for Windows users.

RedSn0w might be the solution for frustrated BlackRa1n users who are having troubles with their jailbreak. While RedSn0w 0.9 might not be as fast as BlackRa1n, it’s most likely going to be much more reliable.

As soon as RedSn0w is available, I will write a tutorial on how to jailbreak your iPhone with it, so stay tuned πŸ™‚

    Great! I’d been waiting for this piece of news for months?!

  • Jerry

    what is the point of this when apple is most likely releasing a new firmware soon..makes no sense unless this jailbreaks the new iphone

  • Colten

    Took then long enough geez!!

  • Albion

    I think its a waste of time for you or the devteam. Tell them to save their work. And thank got we got geothot otherwise. We wouldnt have had the iphone and forgot about this site or the devtean and many other comunitis that have yo do with the iphone.

    Ps: i wanted to thank you for the help and info i have recived all this time from this blog

    @sabastien

    U were right when you said they were probably up to something. sweetness

  • Brihana

    This is not a great news for me. Probably once they released RedSn0w 0.9 Apple has changed to OS 3.2.0.

    Thank you BlackRain for fast releasing the Jailbreaking program.

  • Garethdphillips

    I have to say I have had no problems at all with blackra1n and blacksn0w on my 3g and thak god for Geohot. I appreciate all the work anybody does to help jailbrakers and unlockers but the Dev Team haven’t exactly been dynamic recently, and have left Windows users out in the cold a bit ! I don’t even think they gave fixed the operator logo bug yet! Don’t get that with blackra1n !

  • great news (:

  • jb

    Will this new Redsnow allow jailbreaking of the new 3Gs with the bootrom issue?
    JB

  • Chris

    It looks like it will still be a tethered jailbreak…

  • David

    Lol who cares they are three months late.

  • @Albion Thank you for taking the tim to thank me πŸ™‚

    @Dylan of course I was right πŸ˜‰

  • VnABC

    Thanks, this would help my friend to jb his phone. i think Dev Team is more reliable, but gotta thank geohot too… Give people choices…;)

  • chiaph

    let’s hope they come out with the jailbreak that will solve the problem cause by the new bootroom

  • Sil

    How soon do you think we can have redsnow 0.9?

  • Tony

    Is the new redsn0w able to unlock the new baseband or is it simply a jailbreak program ?

  • @Sil I think it’s going to be available in the next few days.

    @Tony I’m not sure. I don’t think so πŸ™

    My GPS, Internet AND phone connection drops all the time.. Sometimes it just even stops.. so i can’t use it untill i jailbreak it again..
    Is this the baseband problem ? New boot-thing or is that a problem with my iphone itself? x

    please reply me as soon as possible.. Payed tons for a phone that works 40% of the time :s.
    getting frustrating.

    Thanks on advance πŸ™‚ .. x

  • chiaph

    @ Mitch

    i encounter the same issues just like yours. make payment for applications and there were a % of the application that does run properly. called up iTunes Customer Support but they just never reply to me with a solution

  • chiaph

    hi Sebastien

    will redsn0w be coming out this week? i can’t hardly wait to get my iPhone jailbroken to try the WinterBoard and iSwitcher

  • iAlex

    Hi Sebastien,

    have heard anything from MuscleNerd or any of the other Devteam developers? [:
    I guess they will release redsn0w 0.9 somewhere this coming week (January 18th to 24th).
    And I hope they do, because my left earplug doesn’t work proper any more, and it’s probably because of the firmware I’m using atm (firmware 3.0). :\

  • Mitch

    Is it normal I always lose connection?
    is it a hardware problem or will redsnow fix this? x

  • iAlex
