Redsn0w is the one name that we all associate with jailbreaking, one of the most reliable methods ever released. It comes from the iPhone Dev team and works on all major platforms, including Mac, Windows, and Linux. The only thing that changes is the download method whenever an update is released, but all you need to do is follow our step-by-step tutorials very carefully so that your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will be properly jailbroken.
More About Redsn0w:
The iPhone Dev team first released Redsnow in 2008, when it was initially named QuickPWN. It is an incredibly versatile and adaptable jailbreak tool with support for all the major platforms and the ability for users to install both tethered and untethered jailbreaks onto their devices. However, there is a limit on the untethered jailbreaks provided by Redsnow. Anyone using an iPhone 4 or earlier on iOS 5.1.1 or earlier can install an untethered jailbreak. Anything newer than that, both device and iOS firmware, is limited to a tethered jailbreak.
Redsnow can also be used for installing jailbreaks on some devices on iOS 6.1.3 but only if those devices have a chip earlier than the A5 and it will be a tethered jailbreak only. To show how versatile Redsn0w is, though, it can also be used for downgrading devices back down to iOS 6.1.2 but only if you have already saved your SHSH blobs beforehand. Once you downgrade, you can use the Evasi0n jailbreak utility on your device.
Redsnow is compatible with the following iPhones:
- iPhone 4 – iOS 3.1.3 to iOS 6.1.3
- iPhone 4S – iOS 5 to iOS 5.1.1
- iPhone 5S – Unsupported at this time
The iPhone Dev Team monitors the jailbreak situation very carefully; whenever they come against an unpatched exploit in the firmware, they provide an update to Redsn0w so it can use that exploit. That provides the tool with the facility for more users to take advantage of it. Right now, the Redsn0w tool is on v0.9.15b3, and we expect updates to be released with iOS 7.
