jailbreak ios 4.1


  • RedSn0w is a Jailbreak NOT an unlock.
  • RedSn0w 0.9.5 b5-5 supports both the iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non-MC version).
  • RedSn0w 0.9.5 b5-5 jailbreaks iOS 4.1 beta 1 and iOS 4.0 final
  • It also hacktivates iPhone 3G
  • iOS 4.1 beta comes with updated baseband which is NOT unlockable ATM. So, all the iPhone 3G users depending on unlock MUST stay away from iOS 4.1.
  • For both Windows and Mac OS X.

NOTE: Apple is expected to push iOS 4.01 to general public soon and will stop signing iOS 4.0 so it’s best time to save SHSH blobs of iOS 4.0 for iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch 3G, 2G (MC) in order to secure future jailbreak:

Let’s start jailbreaking iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G running iOS 4.1 beta with RedSn0w 0.9.5 beta 5-5.

Jailbreak iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G (non-MC) iOS 4.1 beta

Step 1

Download the the required stuff linked at the bottom.

Step 2

Restore iOS 4.1 on your iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G (non-MC). you need iTunes 9.2 to do that. (Links below)

Step 3

  1. Run the downloaded redsn0w 0.9.5 beta.
  2. Hit the Browser button. Select the iOS 4.0 IPSW file. Yes iOS 4.0 Not the iOS 4.1 that’s the tricky part.
  3. Check mark Cydia and hit next button.
  4. Check mark Enable Multitasking and Wallpaper (uncheck if you don’t want to enable these options)
  5. You’ll be instructed to put your iPhone into DFU Mode to install jailbreak.
  6. When your iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G (non-MC) comes back up, you’ll notice Cydia has a blank white icon (we told you many things were broken right now!) Allow Cydia to reorganize, then accept the update it offers. When Cydia restarts, you should see its real logo now.

Point it to iOS 4.0 NOT 4.1 (that’s the tricky part to jailbreak 4.1 beta or 4.0.1)

@KING Ayub This is for the 4.1 beta, not the 4.0.1
