The Dev team has released RedSn0w beta 6 which fixes a couple of old issues such as Bluetooth functionality and Skype in the JailBroken iDevice. The most important to the users is the fact that this Jailbreak is actually untethered. Unfortunately in order for us to have an untethered Jailbreak your iDevice must have 4.2B3 SHSH files on file with Cydia. Keep in mind this tutorial is only for Mac users. I had a friend test this out on a virtual machine running Leopard and it did not work so do not waste your time trying that method.
This version of RedSn0w is limited to iPhone4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G. If you need an Unlock then I suggest you to stay away from this version of Redsn0w and wait for The PwnageTool to be updated.
The files you need are (Just Select and Download the proper file from the links below) :
- Redsn0w 0.9.7b6
- iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch 4.2.1 IPSW
- iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch 4.2b3 IPSW
Only those enrolled in the iPhone Developer Program have legitimate access to that 4.2b3 IPSW. Please do not pirate any Files!
Follow the step-by-step directions:
Place all the items you have downloaded on your desktop for ease.
Run Redsn0w and click browse
On the left pane click desktop and select the 4.2.1 IPSW from the right pane and click next.
Now if you had your 4.2 b3 SHSH files on file with Cydia Check Jailbreak Monte (untether) and select the 4.2 b3 IPSW when the window opens. If you dont have 4.2 b3 SHSH saved then just click next and your device will Jailbreak but will be Tethered.
Read the directions that Redsn0w is giving you. Power off your device and make sure it is plugged in to your computer.
Once this step is completed the jailbreak process will start and may take a while. Be patient and just wait! You will see files install on your iDevice.
Once it is finished Redsn0w will say “Done”
Then just wait till your iDevice boots up. It may take a few minutes..
Enjoy your JailBroken iDevice!!
