Redsnow 0.9.9 B5 released to Jailbreak iOS 5 / iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch


Redsnow 0.9.9b5 is rolled out by iPhone Dev Team to support iOS 5 jailbreak on all devices except iPad 2. However, it is to be noted that this version provides tethered jailbreak on iOS 5 devices. Those users who are still looking for untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1, iOS 4.3.2 and iOS 4.3.3 can still use Redsnow 0.9.6 RC16. First we will post the complete step by step guide for iOS 5 users and after that some lines about previous jailbreak.

If you rely on iPhone Unlock, never follow this guide. Head over to this post for complete step by step guide on “How to Unlock iOS 5″ to unlock and jailbreak your device at the same time.

Redsn0w 0.9.9 b5 to Jailbreak iOS 5:

Note: All those users who rely on unlock must not try this guide. In fact they must not upgrade their devices to iOS 5 otherwise they may lose the unlock ability forever.


  • iOS 5 Firmware [the links are at the bottom of this guide]
  • iTunes 10.5
  • Redsn0w 0.9.9 b5
  • And of course an iPhone or iPad/iPod Touch


Step 1: Download iTunes 10.5 and install it on your PC.

Step 2: Sync and back up your iPhone using iTunes.

Step 3: After you have backed up your device, update it to iOS 5.

Step 4: Download Redsn0w 0.9.9 b5 and launch it.

Redsnow 0.9.9 b5


Step 5: Click on “Jailbreak” option.

Blank Cydia

Step 6: Now select “Install Cydia” and if you want to use the Multitask Gestures on iOS 5, select the third option too, as shown in this picture.

Step 7: Switch off your device and put it into DFU mode. Follow the on-screen instructions to ener DFU mode. The instructions are:


  • Switch off your device.
  • Hold down the power button for 3 seconds.
  • Without releasing the Power Button, hold down the Home Button too.
  • Keep pressed both buttons for 10 seconds.
  • Now release the Power button but keep pressed the Home button for further 15 seconds.
  • You will see a blank (black) screen that indicates your device is in DFU mode.

Step 8: Sit back and let Redsn0w do the rest of the work. Redsn0w will install the required files on iPhone.

Step 9: After your device restarts, you will notice a new icon named “Cydia” which might be blank at this stage. Now again launch Redsn0w, go to Extras and select “Just boot” option. Follow the on-screen instructions which are similar to Step 7.  Now when your device restarts you will notice “Redsn0w logo”. After the deice has restarted, you can see “Cydia” icon.


Fire up Cydia, tap on User option and start installing your favorite tweaks and Cydia apps. If you want to get further help on this jailbreak guide for iOS 5, please follow us on Twitter/Facebook.


Download Redsn0w 0.9.9b5:

  • Download Redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Windows [Beta 5 version for Windows is under testing, but this beta 4 will also work].
  • Download Redsn0w 0.9.9 b5 for Mac

Download iOS 5.

Download iTunes 10.5 which is required to install the iOS 5  on your device.

Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC 16 to Jailbreak iOS 4.3.3/iOS 4.3.2/iOS 4.3.1:

Redsnow 0.9.6 RC16 has been released to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 [iOS 4.3.2] and iOS 4.3.3. This new and updated version provides untethered jailbreak on all idevices except iPad 2.

Update: Redsnow RC16 is now available. It fixes side switch vibration issue on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. For more details head over to this post.

As usual Redsn0w 0.9.6 is available for both Windows and Mac users. Head over to “How to Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 Untethered Using Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC9 [HowTo Guide]” for complete step by step jailbreak tutorial.

Redsnow 0.9.6 RC15 Update Notes:

… three in a row!  Apple released iOS 4.3.3 on Wednesday, and once again the untethered jailbreak exploit that@i0n1c created for 4.3.1 still works.  That makes it an unprecedented three firmwares where the same userland exploit works.  We’re not exactly sure why Apple hasn’t fixed the hole yet, but we’re not complaining!

Today’s PwnageTool and redsn0w incorporate @i0n1c’s port to 4.3.3 (it’s ironic that such a long-lasting untether doesn’t even have an official name!).  It also of course uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit to inject the jailbreak.  The 4.3.3 untether works on all devices that actually support 4.3.3 except for the iPad2:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV2G (v4.3 8F202)

Some things to note:

  1. ultrasn0w unlockers must stay away from redsn0w!  Use only a custom IPSW to update to 4.3.3, to avoid updating your baseband. There are plenty of tutorials for both redsn0w and PwnageTool at sites like shoutpedia.  Or feel free to ask away in our comments section below.
  2. ultrasn0w has been updated to v1.2.3 to be compatible with iOS 4.3.3 and earlier (the ultrasn0w update does not include any new baseband support!).Please reboot your iPhone using the normal “slide to power off” swipe after installing ultrasn0w 1.2.3.
  3. By popular demand, redsn0w now allows you to enable multitasking gestures (although most will find it useful only on iPads).
  4. iPad2 update:  The iPad2 jailbreak remains under development.  As you may know, the original exploit @comex developed in the first week of the iPad2 release was mysteriously fixed by Apple within days of its development.  Partly because of this, don’t expect much public discussion of the iPad2 jailbreak until it’s actually finished and ready for release (and please avoid asking about it).  In all liklihood, it will be a userland exploit like the first (unreleased) one, not dependent on bootrom dumps.  The first one can’t be released even for those with the original 4.3 firmware due to legal (distribution) reasons.

As always, please feel free to ask for help or advice in our comment section, with out friendly moderators Confucious, sherif_hashim, dhlizard, Frank55, and subarurider (and many other very knowledgable commenters too!)

Other Redsnow Updates:

  • Redsnow 0.9.6 RC 12 adds the option to enable boot animations and removes some misleading information from settings related to side switch. You can read the more details in our this post.
  • Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC13b is now available to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 on all idevices except iPad 2. iPhone 4 untethered jailbreak support has been dropped from this update due to some problem on this model. Tethered jailbreak is still possible on iOS 4.3.2 using this new version. Download RC13b from here.
  • Redsnow 0.9.5 RC14  provides untethered iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak on all idevices including iPhone 4 but except iPad 2. Get it here.

If you have already jailbroken (tethered) your device using the early version of Sn0wbreeze or Unofficial PwnageTool bundles, you can simply run the Redsnow over it to get untethered jailbreak.

If you are looking for iPad 2 Jailbreak, read how to jailbreak it with JailbreakMe 3.0. While iOS 5 beta 5 jailbreakers need to download Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 which provides tethered jailbreak on all idevices except iPad 2.


Run Mac OS X from USB Stick

First, prepare all that need:

USB Flash Disk (min. 2 GB required). You can use many types for this USB disk, such as USB Stick, USB Pendrive, ZIP Disk, your iPod, SD or MMC card, extrenal hard drive, etc.

JaS Mac OS X 10.4.x Retail DVD

Pacifist software. Download here.

OK. Ready? Now plug your USB Disk, and it will be mounted automatically.

Open Disk Utility (Applications->Utilities)

Select your USB Disk device in the left menu, and click the partition tab.

Enter a nice name for your device like osx86.

Hit Options… button, and choose Master Boot Record.

From the drop-down, choose 1 partition as the volume scheme.

Be sure the filesystem is Mac OS Extended (Journaled), 

Hit the Partition button.

Next, we need to enable Owners, open a Terminal and type:

sudo /usr/sbin/vsdbutil -a /Volumes/osx86

Mount the JaS 10.4.x DVD or the Retail 10.4.x DVD.

Browse to the directory System/Installation/Packages on the DVD.

Open OSInstall.mpkg with pacifist (right-click->Open With Pacifist).

Expand Contents of EssentialSystemSoftware, then expand Contents of


Select Contents of BaseSystem.pkg and Contents ofEssentials.pkg and

right-click and choose Install to Other disk…

Choose your USB Disk (osx86) and hit the install button. Now be patient 🙂

Now depending on what DVD you used, you will need to download the

right update from apple.com. I downloaded the 10.4.8 Intel update since I used

10.4.7 retail DVD.

Open MacOSXUpd10.4.8Intel.pkg with Pacifist and install to Other disk…

N.B.: Before installing the update, you may need to free some space on the USB Disk.

Just delete the asiatic font files in /System/Library/Fonts (= 100 MB bonus).

Since we installed with Pacifist, some of the files are missing. We need to copy them.

Get them from a full 10.4.8 working install. Those files are:



/Applications/Address Book.app



You need to replace the following files:

/mach_kernel by semthex SSE3 or SSE2 kernel






Add this for PS2 keyboard/mouse:


Put all your custom kext you use on your working install.

Do not forget to chmod -R 755 and chown -R root:wheel all files you copy.

Be sure that you have bless version 24.0 from 10.4.4. 

Any other version of bless won’t work. 

Run bless -version in Terminal to check version. 

sudo bless –verbose –folder

“/Volumes/osx86/System/Library/CoreServices” –bootinfo

Now, Repair permissions

Open Disk Utility.app, select your USB Disk and repair permissions.

Then set partition to active

Open a Terminal, be sure your USB Disk is plugged in

> sudo -s

> diskutil list

> /dev/disk1

   #:                   type name        size      identifier

   0: FDisk_partition_scheme             *1.9 GB   disk1

   1:              Apple_HFS osx86       1.9 GB    disk1s1

Note that here the USB Disk is disk1 (disk1s1).

> fdisk -e /dev/rdisk1

Enter ‘help’ for information

fdisk: 1> p

Disk: /dev/rdisk1       geometry: 999/64/63 [4028416 sectors]

Offset: 0       Signature: 0xAA55

         Starting       Ending

 #: id  cyl  hd sec –  cyl  hd sec [  start –  size]


*1: AF    0   1   1 – 1023 254  63 [     63 – 4028346] HFS+        

 2: 00    0   0   0 –    0   0   0 [      0 –       0] unused      

 3: 00    0   0   0 –    0   0   0 [      0 –       0] unused      

 4: 00    0   0   0 –    0   0   0 [      0 –       0] unused  

First time you do this, you should not see the star in front of partition 1. 

We need to activate the partition.

fdisk: 1> f 1

Partition 1 marked active.

fdisk:*1> write

Device could not be accessed exclusively.

A reboot will be needed for changes to take effect. OK? [n] y

Writing MBR at offset 0.

During the first boot to OS X from the USB Disk, 

you’ll have to finish the installation setup. 

For the first boot, you need to boot to your current working system. 

And specify following boot flags:

mach_kernel -v rd=disk1s1

Notice that we specified disk1s1 from previous diskutil list command.

Next boot should be directly to the USB Disk, 

so don’t forget to enable USB boot in BIOS.

And set USB Flash boot order before harddrive.

Bring your osx86 with you and test it on any PC with SSE2/SSE3 processor like 

Intel Pentium 4, Intel Pentium D, AMD Athlon XP, etc.

Enjoy it!

Speed up your XP and Vista by hack its system registry

Do you know that your computer is like your car: it needs periodic maintenance to keep it running at optimum performance. Installing and un-installing programs, surfing the Internet, emailing, and other everyday activities create a sort of “sludge” that builds up in your computer over time, much like an automobile engine. After a while, it doesn’t startup like when it was new, it stalls unexpectedly, and performance is sluggish on the (information) highway.


Of course, the fastest and easiest way to speed-up your computer is to allow a software program to do it for you! Although you will find that all of the adjustments in this book will speed up your system, the most effective and easiest way to give your computer blazing speed is to clean up your system’s Registry.


We strongly recommend running a free Registry scan to find out how many errors you computer is hiding from you. Your computer will likely have hundreds of Registry errors that are dramatically slowing down the potential speed and performance.


Or you can try the shareware of these registry cleaner programs, such as System Cleaner, Registry First Aid, RegSeeker or TuneUp Utilities 2009 for tune up your Windows XP and/or Vista.



ANT+ networks using an MSP430 chip and Android phone


[Jbremnant] wanted to try his hand with ANT+ wireless networks. This protocol is designed for light-weight and low-power consumer electronics, like heart rate chest straps and bicycle computers (Garmin brand devices for example). There are already libraries out there for Arduino, but [Jbremnant] found that most of them were written as slave-only code. He set out to use an MSP430 to drive a fully functioning ANT network including a computer and an Android phone.


The TI Launchpad is used as the master node in the network. [Jbremnant] chose the smaller of the two MSP430 processors that came with the dev platform. After starting down this road he realized that chip didn’t have a hardware UART needed to communicate with the SparkFun ANT board (based on the nRF24AP1 radio chip). Rolling with the punches, he used a software UART he had previously worked with. Now he’s able to transmit test data from the Launchpad. It is picked up by both a USB dongle on his computer and the Android phone seen above. Check out his demo video after the break.
