Download Redsn0w 0.9.8 to Jailbreak iOS 5b1 on iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G & 1st-Gen iPad

Boom! iPhone Dev-Team has just released Redsn0w 0.9.8 to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 on iPhone 4(GSM+CDMA)/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G and 1st-Gen iPad. Before proceeding to the jailbreak procedure, note that this is a tethered jailbreak. Tethered jailbreak means, you MUST reboot your iPhone into tethered jailbroken state on every restart.

Redsn0w 0.9.8 (Main)
Redsn0w 0.9.8 is only available for Mac OS X users and it will NOT hacktivate your iPhone. This means you need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past all the new activation screens. Those iPhone 3GS users who got iPad baseband should STAY AWAY from this jailbreak method until iPhone Dev-Team releases PwnageTool to create iOS 5 custom IPSW for your iPhone.

Steps to Jailbreak iOS iOS 5b1 Using Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 on Mac OS X:

  1. If you have got registered Apple Developer's account, download iOS 5 beta 1 by signing into iOS Dev Center here. If you do not own Apple Developer's account, just Google Download iOS 5 IPSW for your iDevice and you will get tons of torrent links.
  2. Once you got hold of iOS 5b1 IPSW, launch iTunes and restore stock iOS 5b1 on your iDevice.
  3. Once your iPhone has been restored to stock iOS 5b1 firmware, launch Redsn0w and click on Browse button. Again select stock iOS 5b1 and let Redsn0w process the provided IPSW. After Redsn0w has successfully identified your IPSW file, click on the Next > button to patch the kernel of a firmware.
  4. Redsn0w 0.9.8 (Select IPSW)
    Redsn0w 0.9.8 (Patching Kernel)

  5. Once kernel has been successfully patched, you will be presented with number of jailbreak options. Choose Install Cydia and click on the Next > button.
  6. Redsn0w 0.9.8 (Install Cydia)

  7. Connect your iDevice to your PC or Mac vis USB cable. Hold down the Power button to turn OFF your iDevice completely. Click on the Next > button to view the DFU instructions.
  8. Redsn0w 0.9.8 (Prepare DFU)

  9. Now you need to put your iDevice in DFU mode. To do so, hold down the Home+Power button simultaneously for 10 seconds. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button until Redsn0w detects your iDevice in DFU mode.
  10. Redsn0w 0.9.8 (DFU Instructions)

  11. As soon as Redsn0w will detect your iDevice in DFU mode, it will go through number of jailbreak steps including Exploiting with limera1n > Uploading first stage > Uploading second stage > Uploading ramdisk > Uploading kernel and more. If your iDevice gets stuck at any of these steps, follow this guide to set your CPU affinity to 1.
  12. Redsn0w 0.9.8 (iOS 5 Jailbreak)

  13. Once your iDevice has been jailbroken on iOS 5, Safari and Cydia app will not work. This is because the current iOS 5b1 jailbreak with Redsn0w is tethered. You need to boot your iDevice into tethered jailbroken state. To do so, launch Redsn0w again and jump to step 3. In step 4, only choose Just boot tethered right now option. Follow on-screen instructions to put your iDevice in DFU mode and let Redsn0w to boot it into tethered jailbroken state.

      Only if your on the iPad BB, for the 1015 restore error, all you need to do is to run Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 on top of it. It’ll get you past the restore error from iTunes. Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 will not support Hacktivate. You need to be a part of the Apple’s dev program if you have to activate it using your unique registered UDID.

        I’ve been trying to do the ios 5 restore whiles running redsn0w0.9.8b1, but nothing seems to work. I’ve tried in DFU mode, in pwned DFU mode and whilst running a tss server, but nothing seems to work. any tips for using the redsn0w0.9.8b1 to restore a 3gs with ipad baseband to ios5b1?

          To restore a 3GS with iPad BB, you need not use TU. (Also 3GS never works with TU). Go ahead and install the IPSW directly from iTunes, on completion you’ll receive an 1015 error and will throw you into a RecoveryLoop. Run Redsn0w0.9.8b1 at that point of time. It’ll kick you out of the RecoveryLoop and into iOS 5.

      Not available yet. No news either from the devs. You’ll just need to wait. The iPhone Dev-Team warns those who rely on an unlock to stay away from iOS 5b1. It is only intended for the devs of jailbroken apps.

    how do you update to ios 5 beta 1 with the ipad baseband?

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 3 months ago

      No option for that yet on Redsn0w0.9.8. You’ll need to wait until the devs come up with that feature. (Don’t think it’ll be out until the public release of iOS 5 is out.) Also stay as far as possible from the iOS 5b1 JB if you rely on an unlock. iPhone Dev-Team warns.

    Only Mac… Will be good if there is a Windows version.

      Don’t really know if they will ever port it to Win (I don’t think they will take the trouble to port it to Win since the iOS 5 build is not final and the download is available only to the devs.)

          Sorry, we just don’t support Apple s/w piracy. You need to be a part of the iOS Dev program if you need to download the beta1 and also you’ll need to activate it using your registered unique UDID identifier (Redsn0w doesn’t support Hacktivate).

            Its possible to do work arounds to get the iOS 5b1 activated, but we won’t be posting the IPSW links for the same.
