Redsn0w Jailbreak BETA for iOS 4.1 iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2g

Posted In iPhone, iPod Touch, Jailbreak News - By John On Friday, October 8th, 2010 With 14 Comments

I have received many emails about how to jailbreak iOS 4.1, currently there is only a jailbreak for the iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch 2g using the Redsn0w tool. The jailbreak for 4th generation devices such as the iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, iPad and Apple TV is right around the corner and will be released on October 10th.

This redsn0w jailbreak is very simple, if you are looking to jailbreak your iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2g, follow the directions below. Note: Do not use this jailbreak if you are looking to unlock your iPhone 3g


Make sure your iPhone/iPod is connected to your computer

1. Download the redsn0w tool here (for Mac) or (for PC)

2. Download iOS 4.1 (for iPod Touch) or (iPhone 3G)

3. Launch redsn0w which you just downloaded.

4. Select the firmware 4.1 you just downloaded.

5. Select “install cydia” and any other options you would like.

6. Click next, then follow the on screen instructions.

7. Watch your iPhone or iPod Touch get jailbroken :) and enjoy!

    Hi there,

    I did follow all the instructions above. I did download the redsn0w and the firmware 4,1 for my iphone 3g. The only problem is that i can not get to find the ipsw file when i get to the “browse” step. There is just a bunch of files with dmg extension. I am running windows 7 on my pc and i wonder if that may be the issue.

    Any ideas?


  11. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a modest study on that. And he in fact decided to buy me lunch mainly because I found it for him .So let me rephrase that: Thx for lunch!

  12. Hello. Good job. I did not expect this on a friday night. This is a excellent story. Thanks!
