Sometimes people are confused which redsn0w to use to jailbreak their iPhone iOS.
I've made a little dos-batch type tool which should make jailbreak process a bit easier.
I'm not a programmer, so there may be some errors in the software but I've been testing it for last 2 days in Windows XP and works fine so far. Vista/7 is also supported but need some tests. Please let me know if anything is working incorrectly.
What that program does?
Once downloaded will create iPhone folder on your desktop and copy all required files over there. After that you just have to choose which iOS version you have in your phone (maybe in the future program will do it all automatically) and then my software will find out and download redsn0w which supports chosen model and iOS.
You can also check which version is your phone running on by typing f and pressing [enter] - f0recast software used. Will download new version if available.
Also if required .ipsw doesn't exist in default apple folder my tool will get the iOS directly from apple server. Please copy all .ipsw to iPhone/ipsw folder located on desktop.
I can make the software to find out where is the .ipsw file located but... it will take a lot of time to scan whole partition and my idea was to make software which works as fast as possible.
Please make sure that You have chosen the right iOS and right phone. Otherwise it may broke iPhone software and you will have to restore the phone to stock firmware (usually the latest if SHSH blobs not saved)
Please use upd8.exe file to download software from my server. Every time you run upd8.exe will delete old one and get new executable.
For iPhone 2G 3.1.2/3.1.3 you will need to point for the .ipsw manually as commandline is not implemented in redsn0w-win_0.9.4.
Program will get both bootloaders required and correct redsn0w version.
All redsn0w files are stored on my private server. I couldn't manage to make the software getting them from official links but they are untouched.
No viruses or other malware. All files checked with AVG antivirus.
Software was made to help and make whole process easier and quicker.
Anyway I'm not taking any responsibility. If anything goes wrong don't blame me.
I'll do my best to keep software updated when new redsn0w will be released.
- I didn't notice before that iTunes keeps only the latest software in default ipsw folder. From now my program is checking default folder and if it doesn't find correct file it will check ipsw folder located in iPhone folder on desktop and if it doesn't find it there it will get it from apple server.
To get new executable please use upd8.exe or type "u" in batch window and press enter. Anyway program will show that there is update available and give you instructions.
1.0 initial version
- iPhone iOS supported models and versions
-f0recast version 1.2
upd8.exe will download always the latest version. Then use exe file from iPhone folder on your desktop.
If you'd like to get source for it just PM or e-mail me. I don't have any problems if You want to check it out.
Please give me ideas what I can add to the software or what to change/fix.
Next step is to add support for iPod/iPad but I can't find the list which versions are supported. If anyone needs it and can provide that list it would be great.
