Jailbreak iOS 5 iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch (HOW TO)

by Ahmed Omar on October 12, 2011

Your full guide to jailbreak iOS 5 iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 4G. MuscleNerd has confirmed that the current redsn0w tool can jailbreak iOS 5 tethered not untethered.

Tethered jailbreak means you’ll have to plug in your device to your computer every time it reboots to make a “Just Tethered Boot” from redsn0w.

NOTE: iPad 2 is not supported in this jailbreak. Jailbreak iPad 2 is supposed to be jailbroken within few days along with the iPhone 4S bringing untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.

Jailbreak iOS 5 Tutorial

STEP 1: Download the required files:

STEP 2: Connect your device, sync it with iTunes then restore to iOS 5.

STEP 3: Open Redsn0w, click on Extras, then Select IPSW and point it to iOS 5 IPSW file.

STEP 4: Now hit back, then jailbreak and check on “Install Cydia”.

STEP 5: Follow the on-screen instructions to get your device in DFU mode.

You’ll get your device jailbroken within few minutes of installing some important exploits on your iOS device. You’ll get white Cydia icon once jailbroken, you’ll need to make tethered boot to get it working. In future, when you reboot your device, you’ll also need to tethered boot.

Tethered Boot iOS 5

STEP 1: Open Redsn0w, hit Extras then “Just Boot”.

STEP 2: Hit next and then follow the on-screen instructions to get in DFU mode.

Now you’ll be able then to open your device again.

Let us know in case you need any help.

UPDATE: We’ve got a list on all Cydia compatible apps & tweaks for iOS 5.

UPDATE: Here’s a video guide:

UPDATE: iOS 5 Semi-Tethered jailbreak released, here’s our full guide.

  • Kaiser Kim

    This is a very bad article.
    You need to change the title, Very misleading.
    There is no iPad 2 JB/iPhone 4S JB yet…….. For those people that have an iPad 2 or already got their iPhone 4s (Other countries besides US)… It’s unjailbreakable at the moment. Hold on until a JB comes out, Which should be soon.

  • Pontocome

    i can´t JB 5.0 with redsnow, somewhere in the process my Iphone 4 give me a error during JB, and after a while give me a message “giving up”… what i am doyng wrong???

  • Meti

    how about gevey is it working with this JB ??

  • Pontocome

    At the first attempt the cydia icon didn´t show up at screen, and then i did the jb again, and then the error begin….

  • Zack

    What I’ve been trying to find out is this:

    I have and iPhone 4 with iOS 4 jailbroken. I have a lot of jailbroken apps and want to upgrade to iOS 5 but don’t want to update if I’m going to lose everything. Any advice?

  • mcFairy

    Why does the title say “iPad 2″???? you just want people to read this article no matter what don’t you??? It’s not difficult to write “not ipad 2″ or something like that is it??

  • Ffff

    theres a cydia app called apt backup. it should reinstall all your cydia files after new jailbreak.
    additionally download appsync from cydia.

  • Lia

    3002 apple server overload. Try tomorrow or in the next days. It will work.

  • http://twitter.com/mattdemers Matt Demers

    Yeah, 3G can handle it.
    [edit] nvm. Only 3GS+

  • Rheyskie

    First…Just Open Redsn0w and select Jailbreak! no need to select any ipsw. after you install the cydia on your device, you can select the ipsw to boot it tethered.

  • Exodusx187

    I have a 3GS, baseband 6.15.00 and fw 4.1, can i update to ios 5 yet?

  • Jida

    i have an unlocked iphone 4 .. can i update to ios 5 and jailbreak later or this will do me problems ?

  • yasser Salah

    Can i jaulbreak ipad 1 with ios 5 with this method??

  • Rookie2

    Would a 3GS with old bootrom still be tethered?

  • http://twitter.com/mattdemers Matt Demers

    Can you change your linkbait title if it doesn’t support the iPad 2?

  • Paul Broveak

    i assume you are just fishing for web hits since you have ipad 2 in the article heading. please dont do that, its low class. “supposed to be jailbroken in a few days” doesnt mean its jailbroken nor does it mean this method will work.
    i will believe it when i see it. there is Z E R O proof right now that there is even a tethered jailbreak for i[ad 2 or 4s, so … what ever.

    i bet people would shit if i started posting stuff around the net that i had a tethered or untethered JB for ipad 2 and 4s ,,, doesnt mean a damn thing… where’s the proof.

    If I have a 3Gs with jailbroken iOS4 on it that I’ve backed up on my computer hundreds of times (and I don’t plan on updating the software), when I download content onto my new 4S (with iOS5 pre-installed) will the backup I’m using from my old phone brick my 4S?

  • Keiran011

    it fucked up for me to but i ran the hole proccess again and it worked

  • Keiran011

    i think im going to wait for a few months untill ios 5′s jailbreak tweaks and everthing els has been updated and just stick with 4.3.3 for now

  • Lakesmith

    it should not brick it, however it will probably say that the the backup could not complete because the software version of the back up is too old.

  • neal

  • Manaf

    You need to boot tethered again

  • http://twitter.com/liuwentw JackLiu

    thanks

  • Seunarinde

    pls i just jailbreak my iphone 3gs using redsn0w 0.9.9b4 ios 5…. but i its writing no service… i have no network reception

  • Howardstern

    Put it in DFU mode and plug it into itunes and restore it

  • Sonia

    Same thing happened to me, I updated my 3gs and successfully did the jailbreak but i can’t get a network signal.

  • amy

    did you unlock after jailbreak ?

  • Sonia

    Hi Amy. i don’t believe so I only followed the steps above. Can you point me to a link on how to unlock?

  • Sharon

    Whenever I want to switch on my iPad, it stucks on Apple with blank blackground. Could someone help me?

  • Sharon

    Do I need to boot tethered everytime I want to switch on my iPad?

  • amy
  • http://tkware.info TK

    This is what a tethered jailbreak means. Every time you power off the iPad, you must connect it back to your computer and run redsn0w again to make it usable. Just keep your battery charged and don’t power the ipad off and you’ll be fine :)

  • Enokha

    it should be something you downloaded.

  • Pancakedc

    I’ve jailbroken my iPhone 4 with ios5 but the cydia app didn’t get installed. Or at least the jailbreak went through without any other issue as in it didnt look like it failed. Please assist? Should i just run the jailbreak again?

  • boricua

    betwing step 4 and step 5, when preparing jailbreak data preparing ramdisk then crash.. how i fix that???

  • Amit Agnihotri

    Yes this is tethered jailbreak. Every time you will have to boot via redsn0w.

  • Jasoon

    you only need to boot tethered when you either power down your ipad or the battery dies.

  • Jasoon

    you need to boot tethered after you jailbreak

  • Mr Ipad1

    uploading first stage… then, “No identifying data fetch”. What the heck? Help..

  • Abualexi

    thanks I did my AT&T 4G works great

  • Rgc1229

    So, can you bypass the iPhone 4′s activation with the jailbreak? I have no sim card. Short story; iPhone sold to brother; removed sim card; gave to me; used as iPod on iOS 4; upgrade now needs to be activated. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Jaap

    Everything works, but when i sync with iTunes, all cracked apps are deleted.
    Appsync 5.0+ in Cydia and sync with iTunes in installous are on.

    can i upgrade without changing my baseband. i want to unlock to tmobile service.

  • Dylanpny

    Before this my phone was already unlocked on 01.59.00 but I wanted to update to iOS 5.
    The article said “In case you’re on iPhone 4 on baseband 01.59.00, you’ll need to preserve your iPhone 4 baseband to prevent upgrading to higher baseband in order to get your unlock on iOS 5.”

    So I followed the Preserve iPhone 4 Baseband While Upgrading To iOS 5:
    http://cydiahelp.com/preserve-iphone-4-baseband-while-upgrading-to-ios-5/

    Upon following that article, it relocked my phone. Which lead me here. I followed this article, but after doing the Jailbreak iOS 5 Tutorial it makes my iPhone 4 get stuck at the opening spinning load, which does not even spin. I tried turning it off after 25 minutes, which it will not.
    This means I CANNOT ENTER DFU MODE to do the “Just boot”

    Someone please help ASAP, as I am without a phone.

  • just

    Works great on my old bootrom 3gs. untethered jailbreak.

  • http://twitter.com/dreamofkirsten 크리스틴

    is it working for ipod touch 2g? :(

  • Dachmt

    Specs: iPhone 3GS (with iOS 4.3.3), SN 84937, firmware 06.15.00, T-Mobile SIM card.

    I downloaded the iOS 5.0 IPSW, installed it with iTunes, has jailbroken it using the newest redsn0w 0.9.9b5, it worked. I have followed the step for the Location Services because I have the 06.15.00. I have restored my phone data using iTunes, then installed ultrasn0w 1.2.4. I have still no service, I don’t know why. Any idea to help to unlock my iPhone? Thanks

  • Dylanpny

    iPhone 4 on 01.59.00 baseband, already unlocked. Did the “Preserve iPhone 4 Baseband While Upgrading To iOS 5″ which worked but relocked my phone (not sure if that is supposed to happen). Then started to do the jailbreak as instructed by the “Unlock iOS 5″ tutorial. But after doing the “Jailbreak iOs5 Tutorial” it gets stuck on the spinning load before I can get to do the “Tethered Boot iOs 5″

    Help!

  • http://twitter.com/iamsbee Sean B. 

    I am having the same problem. I am freaking out

  • Dylanpny

    it does a half spin every 10 minutes of so…

  • Dylanpny

    let me know if you figure anything out.

  • Losborne11

    I found this solution on another website and it corrects the no signal problem for the iPhone’s running on 06.15.00 baseband.

    I had the exact same problem as you. Took me about 12 hrs to solve this.

    This is what i did.

    1. Connected the phone to my mac and launched iTunes.
    2. Removed the sim-card from the phone.
    3. Put the phone in DFU mode to do a recovery with iTunes.
    4. When itunes was done and the phone had booted I started redsn0w (Using version: 0.9.9b5).
    5. Put the phone back in DFU-mode so i can jailbreak it.
    6. When I got to the select options in redsn0w, I selected “Install Cyda”, “Install ipad baseband” and “de-activate phone”
    7. Waited for it to finish, and after it booted up I got the message “No sim card inserted”. I then inserted my sim-card
    8. Continued with the ios 5 setup on the phone and had no issue activating it nor did I get “no service”-message after setup was done.

    This did the trick for me so I could activate my phone and use it agian. Hopefully this works for you too.

  • http://twitter.com/iamsbee Sean B. 

    I resolved it by going into DFU mode and using redsn0w to boot tethered

  • Sub

    I had an odd problem while trying to jailbreak and then unlocking my iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 and baseband 05.13.04

    By mistake I had entered into the Recovery mode instead of the pwned DFU and that created a lot of problem as I had clicked on the Restore (with the cutom IPSW).

    However, when I finally was able to get it out of DFU and got it restored with the Custom IPSW and jailbroke it, I found that there was no Cydia (neither white nor the usual brown) anywhere. However, when I search for Cydia, I found it and was able to download ultrasnow 1.2.4 and the unlock was a breeze! A point to note here is that my iPhone 3GS was previously unlocked using the jailbreakme exploit.

    The second strange thing (but fortunately for me), I can boot and reboot my device without tethering! I guess it would have something to do with the old bootrom, but the phone was taken much later than September 2009, so I am not sure how this is working.

    Just want all of you to know that in case you also enter the recovery mode instead of the DFU, then press and hold both the lock/unlock button and home button for around 15-20 seconds and the phone will shut down. You can then put it back in DFU mode and then proceed.

  • Chexmix_83

    Does anyone on here “read” the comments before posting your own problems I saw the same thing on here every other post, every annoying. anyways is anyone else getting errors while refreshing/updating cydia, mine has only errors and I cant even add a new source it says POSIX Operation Timed Out. I mean I’ve seen this before but not every time on every source.

  • Dylanpny

    how do you get into DFU mode if you can’t turn the phone off from the loading circle?

  • Skihawk

    I have successfully installed ios 5 and Cydia, but whenever i open cydia and in the sources section trying to add a source, cydia will just close, again and again, even when trying to search something, cydia also get closed…any idea whats wrong?

  • Rgc1229

    So jailbreaking won’t bypass activation if you don’t have a sim card?

  • Mortein1

    i m trying to upgrade to ios 5.0 and having severe problem with restoring my 3Gs with baseband 5.12.01 unlocked with ultrasnow on 4.3.3. i solely depend on hactivation and unlocking by ultrasnow, so the only option of restoration available to me is pre-jailbroken custom ipsw with snowbreeze. okey
    i created ipsw with snowbreeze 2.8b8. no problem
    started restoring with itunes. initially error 3194, after 2-3 attempts—> success
    itunes part of restore completed.
    and now my iphone is stuck at apple logo with progress bar ( u know wat i mean??)
    and now i am here looking for help.
    i have tried restoring form scratch atleast thrice.

    help meeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Amy, even i got 3gs with 6.15.00. Have u upgrade ur phone, plz let me know

  • Losborne11

    I upgraded and realized WinterBoard and Installous cause the phone to go into safe mode. None of them work on the ios 5. It’s a big mess. I’m going to try to downgrade back to 4.1
    For those that are running on the iPad baseband (6.15), once you upgrade to ios 5, it’s very difficult to go back. Right now its not worth it because nothing is working anyway i.e. Winterboard, Installous, etc….

  • guest

    I tried this on my ippod 4g and it worked but then i couldnt open up settings or cydia once i closed it, now im trying it again except my ipod wont turn off, what do i do?

  • Keshavd4u

    i bought my iphone from at&t is d carrier’s sim required during the process because i dont have at&t sim anymore

  • Dachmt

    After a while a found another solution, just do the same I was doing at first, but I just selected “Install iPad baseband” and “Install Cydia” and it worked. With “Deactivate phone” I had an error because of my T-Mobile SIM card. No need to remove the SIM card either. Thanks a lot for the tip!

  • Kopkp

    I simply put my sim card in – then pull it out b4 it connects to itunes – that bypassed activation for me

    i followed all the steps .. but i am unable to install applications in my ipod touch 4g .. do i need to update the cydia

  • Gazza1888

    hi there,

    download a program called tinyumberella, open this, save shsh, then start tss server, now go into sn0wbreeze and up the top left of the program is ireb, now run ireb and put this into a pwned dfu state for itunes, now finally point your custom sn0wbreeze to itunes, voila.
    Do not at any point close tinyumberella.
    you have to run each program in this order.

    tinyumberella first then start tss server, pwned dfu mode with ireb, if this doesnt work use the redsn0w dfu mode, dont jailbreak with redsn0w though, the reason you have to start the server is when itunes opens tinyumberella diverts itunes servers to cydia.

    Do exactly these steps to do this, if you dont you will get a part jailbreak, ie white cydia and white safari icons will shut down when you load them, do all this and your phone will be perfect, do not install baseband 06.15.00 which is unlocked for life but it screws up your gps.

  • Spamdevil1

  • Marcel Elgar

    dose anyone know why itunes would pick up my number and my number shows up on my iphone but yet i cant get any signal? this is after i have updated my 3gs to ios5… thank you

  • Jake Stotts

    If using Redsn0w 0.9.9b4, you need to go to extras and choose iOS 5 ipsw file (you will need to download it). Also select to install ipad baseband on 3GS and all will work fine. Just go to cydia and install untrasn0w to unlock. I had the same problem figuring out why I had no signal.

  • Marcel Elgar

    Hey man,

    thank you so much for this finally have my baby up and running again and my life is complete… Hope more ppl stumble across you method and just to let everyone know this does work for windows as well…

    Thanks again

  • JBarstad

    I tried this on my iPhone 4 running 5.0. Everything went fine, but when I go to Cydia, the icon is just gray and the app won’t launch. It starts to, the screen flickers black, and it crashes immediately. I’ve done it twice now, yielding the same results. Also, when redsn0w is running the directions to put the device in DFU mode, the countdown is slowed to the point that it goes into recovery mode instead. Each second is more like 3 in the countdown.

  • Marcel Elgar

    Here is one question for you though…
    Have you figured out how to get itunes to recognize your iphone and how to dfu mode your phone to make cydia work?

  • Jake Stotts

    put it in DFU first then plug it in and boot tethered. If you dont boot tethered it will not show cydia properly

    3GS (iOS5) able to complete Jailbreak procedure as well as ultrasn0w procedure but my network still ‘Searching’. My 3GS has the following Modem Firmware after upgrading to iOS5 – 05.16.05 (MC135LL)

It won’t boot at all. I managed to put it in DFU mode, tried to go back to iOS 4.3.5 with iTunes 10.4 but I have a bunch of errors (1600, 1601, 28, 1618). With Redsn0w it won’t reboot. In iTunes it doesn’t even recognize the Serial Number. I’m on Mac and I’m about to cry right now… Please help me at least boot the phone ???

    did you get it booted?

  • lavender

    nope. After installing iTunes 10.5 and trying to restore both custom and original ipsw (got nothing more to loose), I was always getting Error 28. I checked on the web, many suggest I let the battery drain completely (or remove it but I’m not equipped) before trying to install again. If you have better ideas in the meantime, please comment. I’ll post again within a few days to confirm wether or not it worked.

  • E3syler

    guys if you have any problems and nothing works just restore. if you updated to the ios 5 and are trying to downgrade it will not work b/c you updated itunes and the baseband changed so your best bet is to restore to ios 5. i tried to downgrade and all i got was error codes every time but when i restored to ios 5 it worked i tested this on my iphone 4 and ipad 2. and keep this in mind this is a TEATHERED jailbreak which means that you will have to boot your idevice using redsn0w and choose the option JUST BOOT TEATHER.

  • E3syler

    what carrier do you have?

    OK last info and I give up. Ran iRecovery to see what’s going on, I think it’s pretty clear :
    “Got USB
    Error -9 when setting configuration
    [NAND] findNandInfo:291 No NAND Detected
    [NAND] _initRawNand:406 [FIL:ERR] FMI – No recognized NAND found!
    [NAND] h2fmiInitVirtToPhysMap:577 CE Map failed!”

    hope the battery drain will fix that but I doubt it…

  • SJ

    Stuck on apple logo..it is tethered jailbreak

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002164862020 Jen Vuiton

    i did that too by accident, and than i found out you can downgrade to 4.1 using custom firmware through iTunes and than rejailbreak it with redsnow and add the option to iPad bb 6.15 again than after that get the new redsnow and create a custom ipsw of iOS 5 and than rejailbreak it. but for me after i rejailbreaked it to iOS 5 ultraslow did not unlock it so i ended up redowngrading again to 4.2 to keep the unlock and I’m still researching why ultraslow doesn’t unlock iOS 5 when it should.??? hope this helps you

    Hi just to stir the pot i have an iphone 3gs that currently enefits from the ipad 6.15 baseband for my unlock …upgraded to ios5 using redsnow and i have cydia installed…it seems to me that my phone is in an untethered jailbroken state any ideas how this could have happened? I have cydia on my ios5 and can restart phone fine without a computer can open cydia insta packages add sources and the like. I use ul trasnow for my unlock any insight as to why this happened ? My only guess would be is that my phone had cydia before ulgrading to ios5 and on first startup after jailbreaking i selected restore from backup rather than setup as new iphone or restore fro
    Icloud … So could the restore have caused this? Loving the accidental incident tho fully unlocked jailbroken 3 gs not requiring computer to boot as it boots like normal..

  • Sean

    Do not use hack activate this is the problem

  • Madetita

    Ok take your iphone and hold the sleep button and the home butgon together , don’t release it until you’ll see your iphone in DFU mode( the cable and itunes) then you have to restore but at least your iphone back, hope it helps for you ( it’s take maybe half or more than 1 hour pls don’ t give up!!

  • Phonegadgets

    In my experience make sure you have closed snowbreeze, redsnow etc then open iTunes.
    If you still get the error disconnect iPhone then reconnect and try again.

    Hey! Two things:

    1. Anyone experimenting antenna issues or signal issues when installing ultrasn0w?

    2. I have an iPhone 3gs and for me, the jailbreak is untethered. I have turned the phone off like 4 times and it still turns on without booting tethered with redsn0w. Is it untethered for someone else?

  • Caro V

    Dude, it’s untethered for me too. And i don’t hve ipad bb but i do have a 3gs…

    what baseband are you currently on..from your iphone go to settings>general>about>modem firmware …mine is the ipad 2 baseband 6.15 and i am currently using ios5 jailbroken using most recent version of redsnow and unlocked with ultrasnow…basically download the 3gs .ipsw firmware file from apple…loaded it into redsnow and used the preserve baseband option..this creates a new firmware file in the same directory with “No_BB” befoer the filename (you will restore with this file not original .ipsw firmware file) then since i have 3gs apple must sign all firmware updates done to iphone so modified my itunes host file (do google search to find out how if you dont know)…put phone into dfu and restored to the firmware i made that doesnt have the baseband udpate…it will read No_BB before filename….restore worked then on first boot of the ios 5 iphone i selected restore from backup rather than restore from icloud or setup as new iphone….and restored using a backup i had made before upgrading to ios5…now my iphone has all old apps and ios5 …. now you can jailbreak and or use cydia to install ultrasnow in order to gain unlock to use phone with any carrier. hope this helps

    Thanks for the tip Sean, unfortunately I’m using Mac…

    Thanks Madetita, the problem is that I can seem to get to the normal recovery mode (the cable and iTunes logo), my screen stays black, it will not boot or keeps booting/rebooting I don’t know. In redsn0w for example when it comes to Reboot, it never does, whatever the action. I can put it in Pwned DFU mode but when trying to restore the phone won’t boot either… I just stay sitting on my boot…y watching the black screen… I’ve spent from 4pm to 3am trying everything I could… no success, but I won’t give up, man will always win against machine :o )

    I am using iphone 3gs/6.15bb/4.3.3. I used this guide step by step but now I cant get network on my phone. I installed ultrasn0w 1.2.4 but it still doesnt get the network on it. Any suggestions?

  • Mateusz02041995

    Download 4.2.1 from everything apple pro and restore ur iphone to that software. Restore to custom firmwire provided. Then oped redsnow 0.9.8 i think? Itll be in the discription, and avigat to 4.2.1 original fw. Then select install cydia and install ipad baseband. Once the progress is finished update to ios5 using snkwbreeze 2.8b8 and use the “simple mode” after succesful installation choose dont enable location services, u can enable it after. Worked for me atm im iphone 3gs 6.15 ios5 with full signal :-)

  • Mateusz02041995

    Reopen redsnow. Put ur idevice to dfu mode and press boot tethered

  • Mateusz02041995

    Right click on redsnow and click run as administrator.

  • Jasonm 1994

    It keeps telling me it cant find the IPSW and to manually find it what do I do

  • iDemented

    1. Yes, I am also experiencing the signal issues after upgrade. It holds, then drops for no reason.

    2. This jailbreak is tethered for all devices except the iPhone 3GS “old bootrom”. You must be a lucky owner of the easiest jailbreakable iDev.

  • Desai_rah

    i have an 3gs i updated to os5.0.. using snowbreezev2.8b8 i jailbreaked it.. and using ibooty i reboot.. and after that using cydia i downloaded ultrasnow 1.2.4.. still i am not getting any network or signal..

  • Johnny Appleseed

    Hello, I currently have an iPhone 3GS, baseband 05.13.04. I keep seeing that people want to downgrade to this, does that mean that installing iOS 5 will automatically upgrade mine to the new 06.15 one? It seems that the new baseband upgrade, in addition to the jailbreak, is what is causing network issues for many.

    Would I be okay updating to iOS 5 and jailbreaking, would that keep my seemingly desired baseband intact, or would it update it and then give me network issues, like others are experiencing? I’ve been a little hesitant to update for said reasons. I don’t recall if my baseband has upgraded in prior updates in the past, though I’m still running 4.0.1.

  • SkeithXEpitaph

    To all who own iphone 3gs on 6.15.00 baseband and rely on ultrasn0w to unlock: If you want to update to ios 5 with the unlock will preserving your baseband with the custom firmware here is what i did and it works perfectly:
    1)First download Sn0wbreezev2.8b8(It will say it was made for ios 5gm but ios 5 final works fine as well. i used ios 5 final)
    2) Open Sn0wbreeze v2.8b8
    3)Create a custom firmware via Sn0wbreeze by following the on-screen instructions. (you may close out of Sn0w breeze after it creates the custom firmware if you prefer redsn0w)
    4) Put your device into Pwned DFU mode via the on-screen instruction on Sn0wbreeze(if you didnt close it out) or on redsn0w 0.9.9b5 or 0.9.9b6( to see the instructions via redsn0w click extras and youll see Pwned DFU. click that.)
    5) Open Itunes 10.5(with your iphone still plugged in) and hold shift then click restore and a window should pop up asking you to specify the ipsw or something. choose the custom ipsw you created over sn0wbreeze. (mine was named “sn0wbreeze_iPhone 3GS-5.0.ipsw”) It should restore normally.
    6) this custom firmware was already jailbroken so you dont need to jailbreak it over redsn0w. Due to me having an old-bootrom i luckily got a untethered jailbreak. If you have the new-bootrom like most ppl do then open redsnow, click extras and click Just boot tethered.
    7) after you have your iphone all ready with cydia open it up and install Ultrasn0w 1.2.4 8) Enjoy your unlocked iphone!
    I hope this helped if you have any question please contact me at Halofreak556@yahoo.com

    I did this on my iPhone 3GS and it worked:

    1. Put your iPhone into DFU mode
    2. Do a Restore from iTunes
    3. Jailbreak using RedSn0w 0.9.9.b6 with the following options:
    – Install Cydia
    – Install iPad baseband

    Good luck.

  • Tommy

    I have a 3Gs running 4.3.5, I think its the old boot rom my serial has a 3,4,5th digit below 939, and I want to try this new jailbreak, but not upgrade to IOS5, can I do than and get the advantage of the untethered jailbreak that folks are speaking about?

    I read through the posts, and I am hearing mention of untethered, but not clear if I can stay at 4.3.5 and get it, or if the best is to go to IOS5 with my 3Gs and will it still be an untethered Jailbreak? Advice, thoughts comments please, thanks in advance folks.

  • Catalyzer

    just download sn0wbreeze v2.8b8 to check what bootrom you have. You will also need the iOS 5 for the 3GS to use to find out your bootrom. Old bootrom = untethered.

    IMA TELL ALL OF YOU RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO JAILBREAK YOUR DEVICE UPDATE IT TO IOS 5 DOWNLOAD REDSNOW 0.9.9b6!. THAN FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EVERY VIDEO GIVES. I REALIZED WHY IT HASN’T BEEN WORKING AND IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE VERSION OF REDSNOW U USE. I USED ALL OF THEM AND INALLY GOT TO ONE THAT WORKED 0.9.9b6. Trust me of it doesn’t work just try it again with a different version of redsnow

  • Jcamacho_479

    Did you boot tethered after the jailbreak? What version of REDSNOW are you using?

Can i get some advice on how to go about this problem? Thank you

    Oldirty9: Look go to Redsnow & go to extras and it will say Boot follow the steps there & you’ll be good.

    Redsnow jailbreak program or the redsnow webpage? Can’t seem to find the boot instructions. I successfully jb’d the iPhone but once I install winterboard and respring, it stuck at boot screen.

    I jailbroke my iphone 4 it successfully however im having a major problem now. It crashed while i was out today and now I cant get it to do anything. I tried the “just boot”, “pwnd dfu” , and “recovery mode” but i cant get it to be recognized by the computer or show so much as an apple sign. I also noticed there is a very dim red light which I believe is the proximity sensor that is now emitting visible light… no idea where to go.

  • roxanne

    my iphone4 now stuck while loading after apple logo. what should i do? please help

  • Fionnn

    How do I do that?

  • Jeevan

    plug it into ur laptop or computer and put it into DFU mode (press the home and sleep button for 10 sec then let go of the sleep button and keep on holding onto the home button until itunes recognises it and ur iphone is restored. By the way this wipes everything off your iphone so make sure u have it backed up on ur laptop or computer.

  • http://www.hiking-camping-world.com/Camping-Mat.html Jonsky

    Hi,
    I’ve boot tethered successfully a few times but the last time I did I pulled the plug before the process was finished. Now I can’t go into DFU mode anymore. When I press both home and sleep button I get the apple logo. I also tried the below but it still doesn’t work.

    “plug it into ur laptop or computer and put it into DFU mode (press the home and sleep button for 10 sec then let go of the sleep button and keep on holding onto the home button until itunes recognises it and ur iphone is restored. By the way this wipes everything off your iphone so make sure u have it backed up on ur laptop or computer. “

  • roxanne

    hey thanks for the advice. but yesterday i finally got my iphone 4 into the home screen after it crashed on apple logo.
    I do these simple steps:
    > while it loading (or crashed), make sure ur idev is still plugged in into ur laptop or computer
    > close redsn0w n reopen it
    > and then click EXTRAS — JUST BOOT
    > and then click “next”
    > now u have to put ur iDev into DFU mode (press n hold together the lock button and the home button for 10 sec and then let go the lock button and continue holding onto the home button for 15 sec until redsn0w recognizes it and start to tethered boot ur iDev)
    > and now u wait for ur iDev to reboot and a pineapple icon will pop up in the screen
    > if this is ur first time after restoring it, so u hav to input several data which are : language, country, and also agreement , etc.
    > then it will go to the home screen.
    and now enjoy ur tethered iDev with iOS 5 :)

    Hi,

    Can someone please let me know is this thing working??? looking at the comments i get the feeling this is not working at all! My phone is 3GS and baseband 05.13.04. iOS 4.0.

    Please can someone advice me on this? Thanks.

  • Be227

    Fantastic!!

  • Davesar Akshay

    i have the old redsn0w that is asking me to find the ipsw file

  • Unknown

    No Actually it’s so easy to jailbreak your iphone .
    also if you want to upgrade to iOS 5.0 you can and you’ll still be able to get an untethered jailbreak

  • Unknown

    Just choose the right version of RedSn0w & everything will be working…..

  • Unknown

    As catalizer told you ,UltraSn0w doesn’t support iphone 4 basebands except for 01.xx.xx so If you want to unlock your phone you have to use gevey sim because it’s the only way.
    Note: once you upgraded your baseband(modem firmware) you can’t downgrade it back.

  • Unknown

    The Only iOS you can find is 4.2.1 for the iphone 3gs , you can’t install a newer software on it.

  • Unknown

    You need to download the ios 5 ipsw for your iphone then follow the tutorial shown above.

    Hold power button + home button to get your device in DFU mode and downgrade to iOS 4.x.x. Guess we need to wait until dev team fixes this completely.

    Guys, Question.

    I tried above first but can’t get Cydia good for unlocking.
    Its still going into configuration the iphone on ios5 and asking activition.

  • Sharon

    Thanks

  • Thatgirlmitch

    There is not currently an untethered unlock or jailbreak for the iPhone 4 with iOS 5, or any other iPhone. It should come out eventually, just be patient.

  • Michelle Nash

    when I followed the instructions everything happened as planned except the cydia icon never appeared on my screen. During the jailbreak it didnt appear as a white icon and during the boot the pineapple during reboot but still no icon
    any ideas? thanks!

    I have iphone4 that I recently updated to IOS5 and that’s when the trouble started. The phone is locked for AT&T but with Gevey card I was using it with Tmobile with no problem. After the update it will not work for Tmobile. So I just did a successful jailbreak but the phone is still not picking up Tmobile signal (no service). Please help.

    Hello all,
    I want to be sure before I mess anything up… I have a 3GS running 4.0.1 and modem firmware 5.13.04 and the OLD bootrom.
    I want to upgrade to iOS5 and UNLOCK it using WINDOWS.

    1> Will I be able to successfully do an unthethered jailbreak with the latest RedSnow?
    2> Will I be able to follow that with a successful unlock using the latest UltraSnow?
    3> Will this method mess up my baseband?

    Please help me out. I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    PLEASE HELP

  • http://www.facebook.com/RagManX Randy Graham

    Banging my head against a wall here. So sorry I decided to try this out. I come up in safe mode for mobile substrate every single time now. I can’t take advantage of much of pretty anything that lead me to JB in the first place. No themes. No SBSettings. No Infinidock. No Folder Enhancer. I’m on an iPod Touch 3G 64gig that now has all the functionality of a non-JB device, except I get a crash on the springboard every time I boot, and I cannot reboot without hooking up to my laptop and running redsn0w again :(

    Uninstalled Semitether. Reinstalled Mobile Substrate. Only JB installs I had done before trying SemiTether were Folder Enhancer and Winterboard. Tried reinstalling them. Ran redsn0w and did a fresh JB. installed Mobile Substrate yet again. Every single time I boot, I get a springboard crash and drop back to safe mode.

    Installed Semitether again exactly like the video shows. Rebooted. Shutdown. Rebooted again. Still crashing. Still safe mode. Even tried reinstalling semitether, rebooting twice, then uninstalling semitether while at the same time reinstalling mobile substrate as someone commented below in the comments.

    Really don’t want to do a fresh iOS 5 install and restore from backup, and can’t fix my problem now and don’t know what else to try. I knew the risk going in, but I didn’t expect to have problems, since I have never had problems before with jailbreaking and adding new tools to my device. Now I just have to figure out how to fix my errors.

  • Ellephantelle

    mine dosen’t boot back up… i wish i never did this! it’s just stuck on this damn loading screen

    Please help. I’m having trouble with Tmobile service. I went through all the steps and phone says ‘searching’. Are there some setting in Cydia that I can make to help find the Tmobile service. Has anyone else had trouble with Tmobile or did I do something wrong with the unlock process?
    Thanks in advance!!

  • Niki22

    as long as you use redsnow to jailbreak it its not gonna pick up tmobile anymore your gonna go back to being on the AT&T network.

  • Not iphone savy…

    Hi…I have an iphone 3gs with ios 5 and I tried the redsn0w jb. Lost safari but was able to connect to Cydia. Tried to download BossPrefs and when I did, well, let’s just say the problems began. Phone is frozen on apple icon but will go to blank screen for a few seconds then back to apple icon. I have tried a hard reset to no avail. Itunes will not recognize my phone and would really like to just go back…jailbreak is not for me. Any help will be very much appreciated! Thanks so much!

  • Jroshan5

    Yes you can Jailbreak untetherned if its a old bootroom with snowbreeze.
    Just download snowbreeze latest version,
    (I think its tetherned with redsnow)
    You can unlock it since snowbreeze will not upgrade your baseband

    I have iTunes 5.0, I used the iOS 5 here and the stock one. I’ve tried both “Extras->Select IPSW” and also straight “Jailbreak me”.

    Any assistance.

    Tried the tethered jailbreak. It was unusable to me because I couldn’t get a 3g signal anymore. And the Edge signal was spotty at best. Guess I’ll have to wait until a final untethered JB is available for ios5 on iphone 4.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P3S6TJRKIGHWZIDSCXY6RQB6M Unknown

    Looks like this is just a problem with an outage in my area. Just my luck. I hit an outage at the same time I jailbroke when I never get outages in my area. Cost me *LOTS* of time because I thought it was the jb so I did a full restore. Yuck!

    Help! I upgraded my verizon iphone phone to ios5 and JB using redsnow a couple weeks ago. no issues and everything was working fine until this morning…..at some point phone must have shut itself down while it was in the holster and attempted to reboot? because now all I have is a black screen (it almost appears the phone is off, but if you cover it up, you can see there is a glow to the screen and the phone is on) I’ve tried everything to turn it off so that I could re-boot tethered (since this JB is tethered for now) and the phone is totally unresponsive….I’ve held the home and power button down for several minutes with no response….I’ve tried entering DFU….nothing….Itunes does not recognize the phone…It is dead…..What are my options? was hoping maybe when the battery finally dies, I could try to reboot tethered then and restore and just wait until an untethered JB is out…….any suggestions??

    Hi, I have jailbroken my 3GS t: iOS 5.0.1 – bb6.15 using sn0wbreeze custom ipsw (untethered as on old boot rom). all working fine. the only problem i’m having is the signal…… I’ve installed ultrasn0w (several times now) but still not getting any signal. have tried airplane mode on/off but still no joy. The sim has a lock on it which i think could be the issue but cant find anything to back this up. any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

    Hi guys.

    I really hope you can help me. I followed the guides to the letter, pointing to 5.0 instead of 5.0.1, tried just boot several times. But after jailbreak is done, and after doin just boot, my device is stuck with a ‘connect to itunes’ screen, and there is nothing I can do. I have iphone 4 gsm, and downloaded the latest ispw files and redsnow.
    When trying to ‘just boot’ I get error: unrecognized build ffffffffffffffff70c71ebe7fe944ce
    What am I doin wrong? Any help will be much appreciated

    If you use redsn0w when jailbreaking tick install iPad baseband which is 6.15 . Then tick deactavate . Then that will fix no signal no sim problems .

  • Bobthebuiilder

    Hi guys – So here’s what happened for me. I have iphone 4. on 5.0.1. Followed instructions and got cydia onto phone but was just a white icon. Tried booting tethered a million times but never worked. So as someone here mentioned before, when your trying to boot tethered and redsn0w says waiting for reboot, just hit the power button (at the top) quickly, don’t hold it down just click it once quick and the little pineapple appears and now it fully works with cydia installed the lot!! try it out!!

  • Tbulsara

    no gevey sim does not work for that baseband and you cannot downgrade baseband. you will have to wait for new gevey to come out

    I have had an iPhone 4 for a year now. It works great and I never have any problems with it. Before this I had an iPhone 3g and it also worked great. This could be because I keep a very good case on my phone, I don’t throw it in my purse where it can be knocked around, and I just take very good care of it. Planning to upgrade to the iPhone 4s or wait for the iPhone 5. But my phone still works and looks like its new.

  • Dronnelly

    Hi Guys, I just wanna tell you all that I’ve just Jailbroken my iPhone 3Gs weeks 41 with cydia installed in my iphone, I dunno what went wrong but after jailbreak following all the instructions and method above, my iphone rebooted itself after the jailbreak process and it loads to the main screen without having to plug my iphone and boot using redsnow, I get good signal, cydia icon and all data and everything still in there, I try 3 times doing shutdown and turn on the iphone boots just fine without the help of redsnow, I try one time doing a reboot and still the same result (no need of redsnow)…I felt so great that it’s not a tethered boot but how come musclenerd said it’s a tethered boot but it is not in my case…just some info from me, before jailbreak my iphone was in version 5.0, modem firmware 05.16.05, i download the ios from the link given above and redsnow from the link given above as well…

    and so I call my jailbreak an ‘untethered’ jailbreak…whoohoaaaaa…..i’m so excited.

    you have to open redsn0w. go to extras, then just boot. ALL WHILE DEVICE IS CONNECTED..(TETHERED) FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. VERY SIMPLE. THAT IS WHAT TETHERED BOOT MEANS. THEN FIXED.

    Hey, could somone please help? After DFU mode, when Redsn0w is supposed to be jailbreaking my iPad, the program attempts to load but fails and states “Sorry, the iPad2 is not supported”
    does anyone know how I can support my iPad? It is not an iPad 2, I’m sure. It’s iOS 5.

  • Philly-Albo

    Hey guys, i am finding it really helpful being here, here is my problem. I used iTunes to upgrade my iPhone 4 to 5.0.1 (9A40), i activated the phone with an AT&T sim card then I used redsn0w latest version to jailbreak it, that went well, i see the cydia icon there even after restart, i installed ultrasn0w on cydia, and i get “No Service”, i reset the network settings, rebooted the device and everything, but i can’t get T-Mobil to work on this device, can anyone help? Your help is greatly appreciated in advance.

  • Philliphudson

    im in same boat only im with O2(UK) and have a 3GS on 5.0.1. I used redsn0w and then installed SAM all went well until i got no service i even had the network searching for about 10 mins before i turned it off.

  • THEVTM

    Same problem here, iphone 3gs, 5.0.1. The wierd thing is i didnt even try to unlock, im on at&t and it still says no service, help?

  • thebush50

    i got the same prob as you and philly-Albo……i can not for the life of me figure this problem out

  • thebush50

    …wow idk how i did it exactly but i got my phone to get signal! i had the same problem as most people. after installing ultrasn0w i didnt get signal. ive been going at it for about a week or week and a half just trying everything possible to get it to work. here is what i think might have done it (like i said im not exactly sure how it happened i just kinda looked down at my phone after rebooting it and it said t-mobile) i unistalled ultrasn0w then reseted the network setting. then i reinstalled ultrasn0w and rebooted the phone…..if this helps anyone let me know. all i really did was play around with reinstalling ultrasn0w and resettign the network settings and rebooting. hope this helps guys.

    biggest problem with these kind of problems no one ever re-posts about how they went about fixing it once they fix it

  • http://twitter.com/Odymon Ody Granados

    Yes. Jailbreaking just adds additional distribution channels for apps. It opens up (hence the term “jailbreak”) the walled garden ecosystem Apple has set up. There is an app available called AptBackup which will backup a list of what Cydia apps you have and bundle it with your regualr iPhone b/u.

  • Ashish

    go to cydia in your iphone then search for redsn0w and install it

  • Joe mers

    Hi! I would like to update my jailbreaked iphone 4. I bought it 1,5 years ago, It’s really slow, and slower day by day. First I would like to make sure I am gonna do well with the updating and after jailbreaking, because I don’t want to loose my mobile. What should I do? Connect with Itunes, can I update it with ISO 5? Am I gonna loose all my pictures and contact numbers? Should I save it first? Can I download the cydia to my computer, and follow the youtube video? Is It not gonna die, is it??

    why do i keep getting “exploit failed”

  • Iwa

    Why don’t you whatch the Video guide above, you must be under tethered jailbreak, so need Just boot using your Redsn0w. In my case, I use Redsn0w 0.9.10b5c and un-tethered already. Hope its help!

  • Iwa

    Seems you are in the unlock requirement other than jail breaking, Please check if your baseband is supported by ultrasn0w. If not or you wrongly restore (baseband upgraded), means you can not unlock it anymore and must wait sometime in future, until your baseband is supported by ultrasn0w.
    Hope it help.

Please dont say to try a different computer because i only have one. And dont tell me to install itunesmobile because it gave my computer a huge virus.
