New Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 Makes One-click Tethered iOS 4.2.1 Boot!
Good news for all the jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 iDevice users!
The iPhone Dev Team has released a new version of Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 for iOS 4.2 jailbreak with one click tethered iOS 4.2.1 iPad jailbreak boot support on 3rd of January. Update: Siri iPad 3 release date.
Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 includes one-click tethered boot option for people running the tethered iOS 4.2.1 iPad jailbreak.
With the help of Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7, you can use command-line arguments that allow you to bypass the screens you’d normally see as you use redsn0w to Just boot tethered for now when your device is rebooted.
Here’s the update from the official iPhone Dev Team blog:
We’ve updated redsn0w to include “one-click” support for those of you running the tethered 4.2.1 jailbreak. Using command-line arguments, you can now bypass the screens you’d normally see as you use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered for now”.
The available command line arguments are:
-j to ask redsn0w 0.9.6 to “Just boot now”
-i to specify your reference IPSW
-o for old-bootrom iPod touch 2G and iPhone 3GS
-b to specify your own boot logo png
For example, to get redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 for Mac to do a tethered boot of an iPad jailbroken at iOS 4.2.1:
open ~/Desktop/redsn0w.app –args -j -i ~/Desktop/iPad4,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw
This assumes both redsn0w and the IPSW are on your OS X desktop, so modify as necessary! Included in the zip is an example script file that you can double click on to launch redsn0w like this (the Windows example assumes everything is in C:). (Mac users: please remember to change the permissions of your custom *.command files to allow execution.)
This should help ease the pain of the tethered jailbreak until @comex comes up with a iOS 4.2.1 untether jailbreak (or for those of you with legit access to the 4.2b3 IPSW, until the “Jailbreak Monte” untether is out of beta)!
- Please upgrade to iTunes 10.1 for best results
- Windows 7 users should run redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 in “XP Compatibility” mode
- Make sure you’re using a USB 2.0 port
Please note that the iPhone Dev Team is working on untethering iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak so you don’t need to connect your iOS device every time it reboots. They are have released Redsn0w 0.9.7 b1 to jailbreak iPad iOS 4.2.1 you can try the latest release of this beta but you need iOS 4.2 beta 3 hashes and IPSW file.
