Jailbreak iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G iOS 4.1 with RedSn0w 0.9.6b1 (Windows & Mac)

RedSn0w 0.9.6b1 can jailbreak iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.1. In this guide you’ll learn how to jailbreak iPhone 3G iOS 4.1 and iPod Touch 2G (MC, non-MC) iOS 4.1 using RedSn0w 0.9.6b1. Read the IMPORTANT part first. Steps are exactly same for both Windows and Mac versions.

IMPORATANT

  • iPhone 3G Users: If you need unlock, do NOT use RedSn0w/Limera1n/Greenpois0n. Wait for the PwnageTool.
  • iPod Touch 2G Users: RedSn0w 0.9.6b1 can jailbreak both MC & non-MC models. But for iPod Touch 2G MC, it’ll be a tether jailbreak (On each reboot you must connect iTouch to computer to boot it.) MC users should consider rolling back to iOS 4.0.x and use jailbreakme or wait for Greepois0n support.

Let’s jailbreak iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G iOS 4.1 with RedSn0w 0.9.6b1 (Windows & Mac).

Once your device goes into DFU mode, RedSn0w will start jailbreaking it. Once done, you can find the Cydia icon on your iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G home screen.

That’s it. You’ve successfully jailbroken iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G iOS 4.1 firmware with RedSn0w.

Troubleshooting

Any Windows users seeing “Waiting for reboot” for too long (more than 20 seconds or so), please try “shaking” the JB process by unplugging then replugging your USB cable (while letting redsn0w continue to run). Also, try using a USB port “closer” to your computer (as opposed to on your monitor or behind another hub). We’re still tweaking the Windows flow and so any feedback you can provide will help!

My iPod 2g has been in DFU mode even after redsn0w telling that the process is completely done,
I’ve been waiting for like 10mins now but still nothing, I guess I should restore it and try again

vampooya October 26, 2010, 11:15 am

Doing the process for the second time, and it worked!
Thank you Redsn0w

Ipod 2nd gen 8gb MB model (non-MC)
After a clean restore to 4.1, and restore of my settings and docs from a previous save, I followed step by step the instructions.
* First attempt with greenpoison failed. In greenpoison, the end of the process told me to quit and restart to try again. I could not power my Ipod on (screen always black).
* Second attempt, but this time my ipod screen lighted up during the process, and managed to finish.
* Don’t forget to start the Loader App (white icon) in the menu after jailbreaking.

nice tutorial

brock6389 August 28, 2011, 6:44 pm

Is Redsn0w still available? The mirrors above don’t work (one takes you to a site where you have to pay for an account to download it, the other is broken. Can’t get Limera1n or Greenpoison to work, getting desperate for something else to try.

Great facts. Cheers because of this.

domglynn1122 February 26, 2012, 5:28 am
