RedSn0w

Redsn0w is an easy to use jailbreak for iPhone. See our RedSn0w guide and tutorial for instructions on how to use RedSn0w to jailbreak your iPhone.

How to convert a tethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak

As we told you a bit earlier in the day, if you’re using a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 via the RedSn0w method, then you can easily convert that tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak by means of a Cydia package.

Indeed, by downloading the evasi0n package from Cydia, you can transition over to an untethered jailbreak in just a few steps. While this isn’t perhaps the most ideal way to achieve an untethered jailbreak, it is nice to have the option. This is especially useful for users who already have a ton of Cydia packages downloaded. By using this method, you don’t have to reinstall all of your Cydia apps and tweaks. Given the state of Cydia right now, that’s a very desirable proposition.

Take a look inside, as we show you how easy it is to convert your tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 4

Apple seeded the 4th beta installment of iOS 6.1 just a while ago, and it’s now available as both a delta update, and a direct download via Apple’s developer portal.

As we always strive to do, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 4 as a confirmation that it can be done. Inside, we’ll show you the exact steps that you need to take in order to do the same on your qualifying iOS 6 beta 4 device.

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 3

iOS 6.1 beta 3 has been released to developers, and as we always do, we show you how to jailbreak it. This jailbreak is a tethered jailbreak, and works with pre-A5 devices like the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4th gen. It also should be reiterated that the jailbreak is for developers only.

Take a look inside as we showcase on video how to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 3.

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta

If you’re a developer wishing to jailbreak your pre-A5 device running iOS 6.1 beta, then you’ll be happy to know that it can be easily done using the same method we used to jailbreak the iOS 6.0.1 public release.

This is, of course, a tethered jailbreak, and it only works with pre-A5 devices like the iPhone 4, or the iPhone 3GS. For the full video tutorial, check inside…

How to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1

iOS 6.0.1 was just released a few minutes ago, but we’ve already confirmed it can be jailbroken right now using the existing jailbreak tools for iOS 6.

Although RedSn0w was recently updated to 0.9.15b3, the update doesn’t yet include support for iOS 6. That’s okay, because you can still point at the already supported iOS 6 firmware and successfully jailbreak iOS 6.0.1.

Check inside for the full video walkthrough that shows how.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 is out with improvements and bug fixes

The Dev Team has updated its popular jailbreak utility RedSn0w today, bringing the software to version 0.9.15b3. Although it closely follows Apple’s release of iOS 6.0.1, it doesn’t seem to include any 6.0.1-specific changes.

What it does include, though, are a handful of bug fixes and improvements that should make the jailbreaking process much smoother. We’ve got the full change log after the break…

How to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 on Pre-A5 devices using backup and restore

We’ve been stressing how many new features were packed into the new RedSn0w, and we weren’t kidding. Another under the radar feature that’s been added to the new RedSn0w is the ability to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered on Pre-A5 devices in A5 Non DFU style.

This is accomplished using the same method used for jailbreak tools like Absinthe, which utilizes backup and restore instead of the typical DFU ramdisk method. This is a great feature that speeds up the jailbreak process on Pre-A5 devices running iOS 5.1.1. Check inside as we give you a video demonstration and tutorial showing how it works.

How to use RedSn0w’s new Identify feature

As you know, RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 was a pretty significant upgrade over its predecessor. One of the new features that has sort of flown under the radar is the new Identify feature, which is buried in the Extras > Even more options.

The purpose of this new feature is to provide a verbose output of all device info in an easy to read and exportable format. This nice thing about the Identify feature is that you don’t even have to be jailbroken to use it, and it works on pretty much every iOS device, including the iPhone 5.

Have a look inside as we go hands on with the new feature and showcase how easy it is to use.

RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 released to add fixes for 3GS and iPad owners

The iPhone Dev Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.15b2, which fixes a few items for owners of older devices.

The most outstanding fix is for 3GS owners with old bootroms — RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 brings back untethered jailbreak support for end users who fall into that category.

Most of the changes don’t pertain to owners of newer devices, but it’s always a good idea to ensure that you’re running the latest and greatest version anyway. Take a look inside for the full release notes.

How to downgrade pre-A5 devices easily with RedSn0w

RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 was a gargantuan update. In fact, we’re still trudging through all of the new features. One new addition that has us really excited is the new direct restore option for pre-A5 devices.

This new restore option allows you to downgrade your device without having to fool with host files, stitching, Pwned DFU, iTunes, or anything else that made downgrading so incredibly cumbersome in the past.

We’ve made a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to use this new restore feature, along with getting by those pesky Mismatched APTicket errors. Check inside for the full tutorial.

How to jailbreak iOS 6 with RedSn0w 0.9.15b1

As we reported a couple of days ago, RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 is now available to jailbreak A4 devices and below running iOS 6. This latest version is a pretty massive update with a lengthy change log, but the most important aspect about the update is the ability to jailbreak iOS 6 and install Cydia.

Previous iOS 6 jailbreaks required users to install Cydia manually, but the latest public version of RedSn0w works just as you might expect it would. Take a look inside for our full tutorial.
