Redsn0w 0.9b3 Out

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: News

As a point of interest, the iPhone dev team has released redsn0w v0.9b3 which handles 3.1.2.  For the most part, if you are already jailbroken with blackra1n and everything is working ok, no need to use redsn0w. If you need to jailbreak and dont want to use blackra1n for some reason, you can use redsn0w as an alternative. Redsn0w also has options to change boot logos. The redsn0w page has more details as well as download links at the bottom for both MAC and Windows users.

Note: if you have a 3GS newer than week 40 of last year then you still have a tethered jailbreak. That means if you ever reboot, you have to rerun blackra1n (or redsn0w). You don’t have to restore. Try not to reboot if you have these devices.

    Any idea if the Dev Team or anyone out there is working on making a non-tethered jailbreak for these brand new 3GSs? Thanks.

  2. epoc Says:

    @iamse7en: I would seriously like to know that as well…

  3. mastuul Says:

    My guess would be that they’re gonna wait until 4.0 comes out before releasing anything else new.

  4. Solphisticated Says:

    Hello all,

    i have a iphone 2g jailbroken with redsnow, if i upgrade to 3.1.2 can i unlock it again after and if so what with?

    thanks all getting my head around it all slowly

  8. G1AN Says:

    I used Blackra1n from Geohot a couple of times. Both went very easy but the feeling of its usage is’nt nearly as comfy as Redsn0w. That’s why i’m very happy Idev-Team gave us their version of the tool.Therefore i will use this one as fast as possible to give my 3g a boost in the right direction again.

    Can i restore using apples itune 3.1.2 then just run redsnow?

  10. marcelking Says:

    Can anyone help i loaded 3.1.2 from itunes then ran the new resnow beta but my iphone just sits there with the apple logo and does nothing else?

  11. sbigthangs Says:

    i have my 3gs jailbroken with black rain but have wifi probems, will redsnow fix that ?

  12. unison999 Says:

    Does anyone know how to tell if you got iPhone that is week 40 or newer?

  13. unison999 Says:

    Woohoo!! Found the answer in BigBoss of course :)
    Here it is how you can tell:
    You can determine your week based on your serial number in settings, general, about. Look the 3rd, 4th, and 5th digits. If it is larger than 940 you will have a tethered jailbreak only.
    I got the good one :D Thank god!!

    Hey all,

    i tried to upgrade. everything seems to work fine, however i do not see a cydio icon on my springboard.. phone must be jailborken b/c all of jailbroken apps had been reinstalled. Any help on getting the cydia app installed. i tried re-running redsnow and same thing

  16. belo Says:

    2G’s are always unlockable. Bootneuter will take care of that for you no matter what future or past firmware you use. The Dev Team has said this repeatedly.

  17. mike Says:

    The iphone dev team makes redsn0w and pwnagetool.

  18. Modernvagabond Says:

    Any idea if someone can/will make APN work on 3.1.2 – g2

  19. Styx2 Says:

    Today I received my replacement iphone 3G and unfortunately it already contains baseband 05.11 (My old iphone 3G was jail broken with a baseband of 04.26 when I made my last backup in itunes on my Macbook) From what I’ve been reading it appears now that I’ve lost my ability to tether my iphone with AT&T. So I have three questions:

    1. Should I use Pwnage 3.1.4 or Redsn0w 0.9 beta to jail break my new iphone 3G?

    2. When making my last backup I forgot to run aptbackup. Will I still be able to recover my Cydia apps after the jail break?

    3. Do I restore my itunes backup befor jail breaking or after jail breaking?

    TIA

  20. dude Says:

    1. Either. Or blackra1n.
    2. No.
    3. Either, but be sure to do it after if you use PwnageTool: it will be wiped while jailbreaking.

  21. RS Says:

    Can anyone help. I had a jailbroken 3.0 iphone 3GS. I ran redsnow. Everything seemed to work however i don’t have a cydia icon on my springboard and although all my jailbroken apps have been installed, i can’t run any of them. When i click an app it starts to load and just quits. I’ve tried rerunning 3 times. Any help thanks

  22. istoria Says:

    yeah..:) great job BB guys!!! works fine

  23. T Says:

    I have a week 41 jaIlbroken 3GS…so not ALL phones after week 40 have a tethered jailbreak.

  24. Rusty Williams Says:

    My iPhone 3G is version 3.1.2 and that is the firmware I downloaded, b/c it matched. When I tried selecting it using redsn0w it said the IPSW wasn’t identified. The guide references firmware 3.0. I downloaded that and then everything started working. Does it mater that my phone is 3.1.2 and I’m using the firmware 3.0 for this jailbreak?

    Hi guys !
    1.) Does anybody know if the wifi / network reset problem is solved with redsn0w 0.9 beta 3 ?

    2.) If yes – how exactly should I apply redsn0w 0.9 beta 3 to get rid of my wifi problem ?

    Thx very much !

  28. russ Says:

    How do I do a “tethered reboot” on a new iphone.

    From the old videos looks like I need to restore and am SOL until then.

  29. S0m3 DudE Says:

    Does this require the latest iTunes version?

  30. jj Says:

    I have restored my 3GS with FW 3.1.2 twice and jb’d using Redsn0w 0.9beta3. It appears to work but after the phone finishes I do not have an icon for Cydia. Followed the steps exactly. Using Win7 x64. What am I doing wrong?

  31. Scathraax Says:

    So it looks like I have a 3GS from BEFORE week 40. (serial reads 938)
    But like an idiot, I upgraded my firmware to 3.1.2, which put my baseband at 05.11.07.

    Does this mean I now have a tethered device, and would have to do a tethered reboot each time?

  32. JimVR4 Says:

    Not strictly true. My 945 serial 3GS is untethered as a reboot after loading openSSH did not require anything to be done.

  33. JimVR4 Says:

    My 3GS is 945. I did the J/B with blackra1n and it is untethered since a reboot after loading openSSH did not require running blackra1n again. FW is 3.1.2 and baseband is 05.11.07.

  34. RS Says:

    did you get this working. i’m having same problem

  35. RS Says:

    Hel. I had a jailbroken 3.0 OS on iphone 3GS (week 25).

  36. armethyst Says:

    Hi i was wondering is it possible to only add cydia without JB? my iPhone is SimFree, and doesn’t need unlocking, but i wonder if its possible to add just cydia without the fuss of JB or Tethered JB its 3GS with new boot..
    unless i’m missing the point that cydia is the whole JB issue here?
    thanks for helping!

  37. Tommmii Says:

    Cydia = Jailbreak
