Folks that have been experiencing problems jailbreaking their A4 devices using RedSn0w will be happy to know that the Dev Team has just rolled out an update for the popular utility.

The new software, which is now at version 0.9.10b5c, includes a number of stability improvements and bug fixes. The Dev Team posted the update to its blog last night along with the following message…

“Updates #5b and #5c: Version b5b fixes an issue with using custom ramdisks on iPhone3G and iPod2G, and version b5c prevents redsn0w from crashing due to the ever-growing ramdisk size :).

TIP: If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data as wound, you can always pre-select the appropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using “Extras->Select IPSW”.”

We’ve updated our Downloads page with the latest version of RedSn0w, so if you’ve been having any of the above-mentioned issues you can find it there.

If you’re uncomfortable going at it alone, we have a dedicated RedSn0w page with tutorials and other resources to help you out.

      If you are concerned about eventual pwnage tool bugs, use the latest redsn0w version…

        That’s fine but some people want to preserve their baseband for unlocking

        It is possible to preserve baseband with redsn0w, althought you could install bootcamp and use sn0wbreeze as a error-safe alternative too…

      If jailbroken already no need to rejailbreak these updates are for older models or people having problems jailbreaking

  • when are going get redsnow for A5 device (iphone 4s )

  • @Anandh Chandraboase A5 jailbreak is userland, so until a bootrom exploit is found, redsn0w won’t jailbreak A5 devices.

    If my device already jailbroken, do I need this update? If yes, how to do it? Follow the jailbreak step again?

  • Every time I run the newer version of redsn0w over my existing redsn0w it keep giving me an error for some reason and then i get the loading page stuck saying no new firmware was downloaded and it was giving up. Any idea why im getting this error?

    I have iPhone 3gs. running on 4.0 and the current baseband is 5.13.04. Its jailbroken and unlocked. I have saved the shsh for 5.0.1.

    I want to upgrade to 5.0.1 without upgrading my baseband. It should be jailbroken and unlocked.

    I have read many blogs but they all point to different different steps.

    Can you please help me by providing the correct steps to do it.
