You can jailbreak iPhone 4SiPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad 1 and iPad 2 by using the latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8. The latest version is the improved one and provides extra feature of backing up your activation tickets. Also it provides Corona jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 if these are running 5.0.1. The new version of RedSn0w can be used to re-install the jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether. When stitching an IPSW, it can now grab your blobs directly from Cydia. It now shows a lot more info about your device (for instance, whether your iPhone 3G has the vulnerable baseband boot loader, or whether your iPhone3GS has the old exploitable bootrom.

RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 jailbreak is:

  • tethered for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1, if these devices are running 5.1 then it can not be jailbroken.
  • tethered for all other devices if they are running ios 5.1 except iPhone 3gs with old bootrom
  • untethered for all devices (except iphone 4S and iPad 2)  if they are running ios 5.0.1 or older versions

How to jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPhone 4/3gs, iPod Touch and iPad 1/2

Step 1: Download latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 Windows Mac . Now extract the zip file on your desktop or other folder as you wish.

Step 2: Double click the RedSn0w.exe file to run or right click and Run as Administrator.

Step 3: There are two options Jailbreak and Extras. Click Jailbreak (Jailbreak and Install Cydia).

Step 4: You will see the below screen. There are two sections first about iPhone 4S and iPad 2, so if you have iPhone 4S and iPad 2 you can just go to next step without turning your device off. For all other devices you have to plug your device to your computer and turn it off. You can see the status of your iPhone at the bottom of this screen. Read this whole screen carefully before pressing Next. If you are not following the instructions the Next button will remain disabled.

Note: Before clicking next make sure your computer is connected to the internet.

Jailbreak 5.1.1 Untethered RedSn0w

Step 5: Refer to below image now you have to put your device in DFU (direct firmware  update) mode, by following the screen instructions. If you are unsuccessful and there is an error message (your iphone turns on), just relax and keep the computer screen as it is. Press and Hold both power and Home buttons until your iphone turns off and turns ON, Now release power button and keep holding Home button untill you will see some progress activity on computer (RedSn0w) screen.

You will see progress on your computer program and will reach to a selection screen as mentioned in next step.


Step 6: By default install Cydia is selected just press Next. You will see different messages on RedSn0w screen with progress bars. Finally a screen saying “The rest of this process takes place on your device”. Now you will see the RedSn0w icon on your device with progress bar and then black screen with white text lines moving up. It may take some time but your device will reboot and become normal. Now it is jailbroken, but wait ! Read the last step carefully.

Step 7: Now your device is jailbroken untethered or tethered, so it is time to boot tethered if it is tethered jailbroken. How you know it is tethered or untethered. Very simple just run Cydia or Safari if it runs normally you are lucky you got the untethered jailbreak and if these two programs just run and stop it means you need next step.

Step 8: Boot Tethered

Run the RedSn0w program and from the main screen select the second option “Extras” Then Select “Just Boot“. Now you have complete the steps 4 and 5 to put your device in DFU mode. Once the device goes in DFU mode remaining process will complete itself and your device will reboot. Now you have tethered jailbreak installed. Open Cydia and start using jailbreak apps.
