    and they havent untethered 5.1 yet

  • Edward

    Incredible!!! I`m starting to dislike more and more Apple! If you really think about it, they`re not implementing anything new… Just taking away our chance to jailbreak! Just the other day @pod2g mentioned he had a untethered JB on iOS 5.1, so they`re just trying to avoid us getting that! F*** the updates, I`m still on 5.0.1 with untethered JB, and happy with it! Maybe one day I`ll update to iOS 6.0, but after AND only after we`ll have the untethered JB available! Thanks for nothing, Apple!

  • Al

    Wrong antonio…download it on pc or mac and save shsh.Only not install in your idevice :)

  • Damian W

    f#####ing apple updates

  • billy

    good job apple, let all these jailbreakers have it. and please close the 5.1 update so everything pod2g have will be useless.

    wtf is wrong with you douchebag? But actualllu fuck apple im deciding to switch from gay iphone to androids doing everything to them is just way easier and better

  • Tuguldur Munkh-Ochir

    now this is the time to release  the JB and downgrade method from 5.1

  • Andre!

    all you ppl that think that 5.1.1 just ruins all the chances of an untethered for 5.1.1… its the same exploits that pod2g found that will b used in the jailbreak for 5.1.1 apple didnt fix the exploits unless pod2g gave them to apple.  dont worry about the jailbreak iwhen it comes out it will work for 5.1 & 5.1.1 k? Bye!

  • Help

    HELP I accidentally updated and re-jailbreaking does nothing! I can’t use my phone at all… (3Gs)

  • Aayushoberoi124

    edward ill take ur side apple devices have started to suck these days and there are a lot of problems which are there and are going to come in the future for apple and its customers ! i insist everyone to buy a nokia or a blackberry instead atleast u dont have all this jailbreak crap 

  • Metalhead


  • ARich

    I really do hate the new updates since 5.0.1 … ever since i updated i cant text or talk with other iPhone owners. And this never happened when i was on 4.2.1, also apple tech has no clear reason why this occurs.

  • Lorenzo Williams

  • Nuno8126

  • E Budykinas

    I have iphone 4s, this is my first idevice and its gona be the last one ….  Im looking forward to get Android or BlackBerry… “F” apple…..

  • iDroid

    Nokia is crap. Don’t buy. only buy an android or ios (i have both)

  • iDroid

    Sure. I would tell you to have both. I have an iPod touch, which i mailnly use for games. And I have my android, it does all of the other things.

  • iDroid

    Buy android, not blackberry, But keep the iPhone for games. Android games suck.

  • E7ite

    How come these come in rar file? Also, how can i make these into the ipsw file?

  • Zsolt

     they don`t launched the ios 6.0,just the ios 5.1.1
    i don`t now where did you found the ios 6.0

  • Edward

    Would somebody please translate Zsolt what I meant? Thank you ! 

  • Metul4lyfe

    Zsolt. bro. were complaining about the constant updates from apple because they’re just trying to keep the jailbreakers on their toes. what Edward was saying is that he would wait until ios 6 due to its supposed burst of new software etc. read slower.

  • Malex9598

    i wish the jailbreak people and the apple people worked together, jailbreaking wouldnt be illegal and probably be easier to do it :)

  • Sm00thk0zz

    Jailbreaking is not illegal.

  • Edward

    I believe that if they would work “together” then it wouldn’t be called Jailbreak, now would it?? LMAO!!!!

  • aditya

    how can we restore deleted ringtones(deleted using iexplorer)..??

  • Codcomedy100

    Andriod is more customizable unlike apple.
    apple should let people easily customize its ui so it saves them worrying about Jailbreaking and updating the software to stop it.

  • Christopher Zhang

    Hi, I have the same problem with my ipod touch 4g. I have read lots of forums. The solution is to hold your power button and home button together until the phone turns black (Turns off). Then you have to plug in the computer end of the usb cable. hold home and plug the ipod end in. Keep holding home until your computer says that itunes has found an iphone/ipod that needs to restore. Then, you must hold shift while clicking restore. That will let you pick the ipsw file. Restore to the downloaded one from this site. TADA! All fixed :D

  • amir336699

    did you try restoring by custom firmware not the one that itunes update

  • sujoyj

    i downloaded the red snow latest version and followed everystep correctly and my iphone showed the icon of the pineapple or whatever but then cydia icon wouldnt appear. my computer would show as couldnt download require ipsw. please help me asap.. i really need your help

  • JudyHG

    I downloaded redsn0w on my iphone 4 – after updating to 5.1.1 — tried to run the exe file … but after it buzzed for a little bit — it said something like “failed – try again” … I thought OK – I’d come back at another time and try again … but I’ve since discovered that even though I clicked on a “NO” which was to create a backup … that all of my photos on my iphone disappeared. Can you help me recover them?

  • Viraj

    You should restart the device right after the installation is complete.

    Hi I need help. I have the ipod 4g and I think I messed it up doing something like this. I had my ipod plugged in than I pressed the home and power button together to put it in “DFU” mode. It promted me to restore my ipod so I did. I have tried to restore it twice now and currently doing so. I basically had my 32 gb ipod full but after a restoration only about 40 % of my ipod was full. I than had the choice to either make it a new ipod, or restore from a backup. I chose to restore from a backup of yesterday before I updated to ios 6. It is now saying “Restore in Progress” Im worried that all my stuff won’t be on there. It also says it will take three hours. Did I mess up my iPod? Is there any way my information is still on my computer somewhere? I don’t have a warranty but I think think this would void it anyway. Can someone please help me? Did I completely screw up my iPod? Is there a way it can be fixed? Please some one help.

  • franticklex

  • pazzin

    Hello, I have an iphone 4s running in 5.1.1 from movistar mexico, and I used by mistake the 0.9.13dev3 from redsn0w and it doesnt work, so I tried to unjailbreak, to delete cydia and to restore, but any of this worked. Does someone know what can I do? Thanks. Ana

  • qwerty

    Put it in dfu mode, then download 5.1.1, open iTunes and click ‘restore’ while holding the shift button on your keyboard (if you have a windows) or the alt option button (if you are using your mac) and restore it, then jailbreak it and unlock your iPhone

  • spokesy

    this didnt work for me i got error 3194 help please im on ipod touch 4g

  • daanishghaffar

    to restore your idevice to a certain .ipsw file thne you need to connect your device to itunes then hit alt then while holding at click on restore and it will let you browse for an .ipsw file to restore to

    hope this helps

  • daanishghaffar

    ios 6 is rubbish well kind of

  • Erichadd

    you need the SHSH blobs (you get them from a free app like TinyUmbrella) BEFORE you upgrade to IOS 6. Without the blobs you are just out of luck. Apple made sure to have IOS 6 erase the blobs. If you had the foresight to save the blobs then you can search google for downgrade to IOS 5.1.1 with SHSH blobs and you can do it. I am guessing that you didn’t save the blobs and the sad note for you is that currently it is impossible to downgrade without the blobs :( This should serve as a notice to all who want to upgrade to IOS 6 that you should save your SHSH blobs before just in case you decide you want to return to 5.1.1. Cydia has apps that save SHSH blobs it as well, but that is for Jailbroken devices.


    Im downloading IPSW right now. I think the solution is
    1. Turn Ipod off and plug into computer
    2. Download your idevice IPSW off this Website
    3. Hold shift (Windows) and click restore
    4.Select the IPSW file you just downloaded and….
    your done. I hope it works. :)


    you can download the ipsw and then if U have itunes conect your device then press shift and click restore, this will restore your device will the version u have downloaded

  • jrc1288

    Where can I find the IOS 5.1.1 IPSW file download??? Updated to IOS 6… very bad idea!

  • memorystick

    Helo im now downloading ipod touch 3 firmware so i can jailbreake it :)

  • Kevin Caires

    if u had cydia and saved ur ipsw go to redsnow get ur regular ipsw and cutomized ipsw and u should be able to restore

  • Kevin Caires

    no it doesnt u haft to use redsnow now

  • anonimityismything

    I need an untethered jailbreak

  • anonimityismything

    and Frank, if you want to restore to an older IPSW, google”redsn0w”(without quotes) and then click the one that says”dev.iphone…”(yet again, without the quotes)and download redsn0w version 0.9.15b2 windows or mac, depending which your on.Then, unzip the file to anywhere you feel(your desktop is a good idea). then, run redsn0w(If your on anything other than windows xp, right click on redsn0w.exe and click properties=>compatability and make it run in compatibility mode for windows xp. Also make sure to check the”run in administrator mode”box. If your on windows xp, right click on redsn0w.exe and click run as… and click “administrator” and type in the administrator password. If your on a mac, hold ctrl and click on the file). after that, plug in your iphone and wait for redsn0w to recognize it. When it does, it will show what your iphone is called and what firmware it has. once thats done, click on extras. then click on even more. the first thing in even more will be”restore”. click on that and then click the button that says”IPSW”. it will open up a file manager window. Navigate to where you stored the IPSW and double click it. then, turn off the iphone. after that, follow the onscreen instructions for how to put your iphone into DFU mode. once your done, it will start downgrading the iphone.
