• Redsn0w 0.9.11b1 Released

    As we reported just earlier this week, MuscleNerd was working on an update for redsn0w that would allow iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and The new iPad (A5/A5X) users to downgrade their firmware if they had their SHSH blobs saved. iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users have the ability to downgrade as low as iOS 5.0.1 and The new iPad users have the ability to downgrade as low as iOS 5.1. A4 users have been able to downgrade since the dawn of time due to a shiny bootrom exploit.

    Jailbreakers with devices that pre-date the iPad2 will always be able to downgrade (with SHSH blobs) to previous firmware versions due to geohotís limera1n exploit, which allows us to bypass the restrictions that Apple places on restores. But until now, that ability has been limited to those older devices (if you have an older device and donít know how to do that, check the popular tutorial sites or ask in the comments below).

    Starting with redsn0w version 0.9.11b1, those with newer devices (iPad2, iPad3, and iPhone4S) can join the downgrade fun too! In a radical departure from previous versions of redsn0w, it now directly supports restoring IPSWs to your device. The first use of this new feature implements a hack that allows A5 downgrades without a bootrom-level exploit.
    Today, the new version of redsn0w that MuscleNerd promised has been released, allowing A5 iOS device users to join in on downgrading their firmware. MuscleNerd says that the new downgrading process doesn't require a bootrom exploit. The version, dubbed redsn0w 0.9.11b1 is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows. If you are running redsn0w 0.9.11b1 in Windows, it is highly recommended that you run the software in administrator mode by right-clicking on the icon and clicking, ďRun As Administrator.Ē The download links for both of the new redsn0w versions can be found below:

    The new feature allowing A5 iOS device users to downgrade their firmware can be found under Extras>Even More>Restore from the redsn0w navigation menu. To use this new feature to downgrade your A5 device, you must have your SHSH blobs saved. For example, if you want to downgrade your iPhone 4S to iOS 5.0.1, you must have your iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs saved. Apple is no longer signing iOS 5.0.1, so if you haven't saved them already then you won't be able to save them now. Apple also has the ability to patch this downgrading method in a future firmware update, so take advantage of it while you can.

    Another warning that the iPhone Dev-Team makes us aware of is since the new downgrade measure updates the iOS firmware before downgrading, it will update your baseband. For this reason, if you are relying on an unofficial iPhone unlock, do not use this new downgrade method until a workaround can be found. If you used the SAM technique (now patched by Apple) to unlock your iPhone, then you can use this new downgrading method without losing your unlock.

    One last warning from the iPhone Dev-Team is since the new version of redsn0w is built with a ton of new code, they recommend using the more stable redsn0w 0.9.10b8b unless you plan to be taking advantage of the new downgrading feature. This will give them some time to work out the bugs. There is no reason to run this new version of redsn0w over your existing jailbreak because there are no improvements to the jailbreak in the latest version of redsn0w.

    If you are ready to finally have the freedom to downgrade your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or The new iPad, then youíll definitely want to download this new redsn0w release. Be sure to thank the iPhone Dev-Team for this amazing news!

      Does anyone know if Cydia was saving your SHSH blobs automatically like it used to? I was jailbroken for a while on 5.0.1 then upgraded to 5.1.

      Does ModMyi have any news or ETA on a possible untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 on A5 devices?

      Nobody has an ETA other than "soon".

      Good. Now I can restore my 4s and re-jailbreak. This jailbreak has been the buggiest I've ever seen. My best friend's 4s, my girlfriend's 4s, my 4s and my iPad 2 are all on 5.0.1 jailbroken and they all have a springboard crash (or more) everyday.

      Too bad there's still nothing out for jailbreaking my 4S on 5.1 yet. I was so mad when i bought it and it had 5.1 preloaded onto it.
