Dec 27, 2010 - 11 Comments

redsn0w 0-9-7b3 download Update 2: Redsn0w 0.9.7b5 has just been released and it fixes the Bluetooth issues.

Update: Redsn0w 0.9.7b4 download is now available, it is recommended to use that instead.

The Dev Team has just released another public beta version of the untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak. Redsn0w 0.9.7b3 aims to resolve some of the bugs from the prior 0.9.7b2 release, bringing stability to FaceTime calls, winterboard themes, and YouTube.

The limited beta still only works in Mac OS X on an iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G. Other hardware will be supported in the final release, and a Windows version will be out then too. The same caveat applies as before, this is a public beta test and should not be considered a stable jailbreak for mass consumption. Most users should wait for the final stable release of the redsn0w untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 which should be finalized in the near future thanks to the rapid speed at which the Dev Team is working on these redsn0w betas.

For those who are curious what this all pertains to, the iPhone Dev Team is working on an untethered jailbreak for the latest iOS update. Currently, many jailbroken iOS devices must boot with the device attached to a computer in order to work properly. You can learn more about tethered vs untethered jailbreaks if you are interested.

    No. The reason the Cydia icon is white is because you need the SHSH blobs for iOS 4.2b3 stored on the Cydia server if you want your jailbreak untethered right now.

    What does that mean? If you just jailbroke your device for the first time, Cydia will not have any SHSH blobs stored for your device.

    It also means that your device is “tethered” still–probably until they release a different version of Redsn0w.

    There is an option in RedSn0w — “Just boot Tethered right now.” If you use that option and follow the instructions properly, your iphone should boot with a pineapple logo and then Cydia will work. However, if you reboot your device, you will need to repeat the same process.

    Got it? :)

    Exactly same thing for me. I have a two-day old iPhone 4, had iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw installed. Did all instructions correctly. Rebooted twice. Cydia has blank icon, crashes when clicked. Bogus.

    Just installed .7b3, but Cydia didn’t download correctly, I have an icon that is white with the word Cydia underneath it. no response when pushed. What do I do?

    • Alec says:

      Don’t worry. Go to redsn0w select the firmware, then click “Just boot tethered right now” put it into DFU, wait for your Ipod/iPhone/iPad to reboot and it should be working.
