Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 Released (Download Links)

May 8, 2011 - 20 Comments

redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 Redsnow 0.9.6rc16 has been released for iOS 4.3.3 jailbreakers. This new version serves primarily to resolve a few bugs with the prior redsn0w app, most notably with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4’s side switch improperly vibrating. Additional fixes resolve a problem with verbose booting on the iPhone 3GS and an issue with the Windows app crashing during the jailbreak process.

If you are already jailbroken from rc15, you can simply run rc16 over that jailbreak to apply the bug fixes. If you need a walkthrough, follow this guide to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 with redsn0w, everything is identical.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16

These are direct downloads links:

As mentioned above, the Windows-specific bug fix pertains exclusively to those jailbreaking from Windows Visa and Win 7. These users no longer have to adjust CPU affinity of redsn0w to prevent a crash, although it still must be ran in XP mode. This does not effect Mac users.

We’ll update more redsn0w releases and important jailbreak info as it becomes available.

  14. James says:

    Backed up my iPhone 4. Updated to 4.3.3. Ran redsn0w. Synced with iTunes. No problems… other than having to rearrange my icons/folders on the phone.

    REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR ROOT PASSWORD AGAIN. Updating to 4.3.3 will set it to ‘alpine’ again.

    Just did the update and rejailbreak for iphone 3gs 4.3.3. and got a brick…. never happened to me before on any other jailbreak. has this happened to others or do you think i did something wrong? its not a huge deal cuz i can restore and retry…. just hate wasting that time ya know.

    • Parakeet says:

      Try updating to 4.3.3 before using redsn0w, just be sure you are doing the DFU mode properly that is where most people mess up.

      • krashnss says:

        im sure i did the dfu mode properly… this aint my first rodeo… ;)

        it patched the kernals and did all the programming on the phone but when it rebooted it got stuck on the apple icon.

        guess ill just try again…
