If you’ve jailbroken your Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.7 with RedSn0w, you know that you’ve only got a tethered jailbreak. Lucky for you, there’s a new Cydia package that allows you to untether your currently tethered RedSn0w jailbreak.

Following the update to Sn0wBreeze for the Verizon iPhone, an untether solution has been pushed for RedSn0w users and is now available in Cydia.

iH8Sn0w,

“For users who currently have a tethered 4.2.7 jailbreak via redsn0w (by pointing to the 4.2.6 ipsw), I was able to contact my buddy @pushfix. Hes managed to put together a Cydia package to untether your currently tethered Verizon 4.2.7 phone.”

RedSn0w is available on Mac OS X and Windows. The recent Sn0wBreeze untethered jailbreak is only available for Windows users.

For learning how to jailbreak with RedSn0w, refer to our previous tutorial. (For the Verizon iPhone, simply point RedSn0w to the 4.2.7 IPSW instead of 4.3.2.)

Once you have your tethered jailbreak for the Verizon iPhone on 4.2.7, simply follow these steps:

Step 1: Add the following Cydia repo: http://cydia.pushfix.info

Step 2: Search for and install the “Verizon Untether for 4.2.7” Cydia package.

Step 3: Reboot your iPhone.

You should now have an untethered RedSn0w jailbreak for the Verizon iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.7!

Let us know how this method works for you. Were you able to successfully untether your RedSn0w jailbreak on the Verizon iPhone?

    Worked for me this morning! I posted my steps I used here: http://forum.tipb.com/showthread.php?p=1714566#post1714566

  • Redsnow says that the ispw is not recognized for 4.2.7

    • What version of Redsnow (on mac) can I use to get the tethered jailbreak?

    • Joel

      You don’t use the ispw for 4.2.7 you are suppose to use ispw for 4.2.6 to jailbreak 4.2.7.
