RedSn0w 0.9.6rc7 – One-click Tethered 4.2.1 Jailbreak Boot Support Added

Dev-Team has just released RedSn0w 0.9.6rc7 with One-click boot option for tethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak devices. With RedSn0w 0.9.6rc7, there’s no need to select firmware files each time you need to boot your tethered jailbreak device.

Dev-Team explains: We’ve updated redsn0w to include “one-click” support for those of you running the tethered 4.2.1 jailbreak. Using command-line arguments, you can now bypass the screens you’d normally see as you use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered for now”.

The available command line arguments are:

-j to ask redsn0w to “Just boot now tethered for now”
-i <filename> to specify your reference IPSW
-o for old-bootrom iPod touch 2G and iPhone 3GS
-b <filename> to specify your own boot logo png

For example, redsn0w for Mac to do a tethered boot of an iPod touch 4G jailbroken at 4.2.1:

open ~/Desktop/ —args -j \ ~/Desktop/iPod4,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

This assumes both redsn0w and the IPSW are on your OS X desktop, so modify as necessary! Included in the zip is an example script file that you can double click on to launch redsn0w like this (the Windows example assumes everything is in C:\). (Mac users: please remember to change the permissions of your custom *.command files to allow execution.)

This should help ease the pain of the tethered jailbreak until @comex comes up with a 4.2.1 untether (or for those of you with legit access to the 4.2b3 IPSW, until the “Jailbreak Monte” untether is out of beta)!

  • Make sure you’re using a USB 2.0 port

tethered reboot before was not that big of a deal, especially since i have not had to do it for 3 weeks and counting

what this does tell me is we’re getting closer to the untethered.. hopefully
