iPhone Dev-Team Updates RedSn0w and PwnageTool With Fixes

The iPhone Dev-Team has released updates to RedSn0w and PwnageTool that fixes the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 side switch vibration issue, fixes verbose mode for the iPhone 3GS, and improves Windows 7 compatibility.

PwnageTool and redsn0w have been updated to include a fix for the iPhone3GS/i4 side switch vibration issue (only for 4.3.3!). Thanks to @i0n1c for tracking this down (even though he doesn't even have an iPhone!).

If you're already jailbroken at 4.3.3 (by either redsn0w rc15 or custom IPSW), you can install this fix simply by running redsn0w rc16 over your existing 4.3.3 jailbreak. Just uncheck the "Install Cydia" option and check any other options you want. The fix will be installed no matter what you've selected. This is safe for even ultrasn0w unlockers to do (because redsn0w itself won't update your baseband…only an iTunes stock IPSW update/restore will do that).

redsn0w rc16 has a few more improvements: Windows 7 and Vista users should no longer need to set their CPU affinity…just run redsn0w as Administrator in XP compatiblity mode. Also, the "verbose boot" option for old-bootrom iPhone 3GS has been fixed for 4.3.3 (remember: old-bootrom 3GS users can even have custom bootlogos that show right at power-up). Enjoy!

RedSn0w rc16 can be ran on top of rc15. Make sure to uncheck Cydia installation when performing the installation.

You can download the new versions of RedSn0w and PwnageTool here:

I have a 3gs with old bootrom (unlockable baseband 5.13) and tried to update to 4.3.3 custom firmware with Pwnagetool and resore it, but after it completes its getting to recovery mode (connect to itune) but with 4.3.2 custom firmware its working fine, With 4.3.3 its getting nowhere... Help me find if there is any issues with 4.3.3 custom upgrade ?

I jailbreak mine with redsn0w rc15 on mac I have no issues or whay so ever? Should I run RC16 again just to make sure I am not missing anything ? Thanks

Just re run the precedure. It will change nothing except for installing a behind-the-scene fix. No need to restore again. Just start the new redsnow and do what it says, ur phone will work as it did before, but have the fix.

"Windows 7 and Vista users should no longer need to set their CPU affinity…just run redsn0w as Administrator in XP compatiblity mode." Ehm I haven't had to use compatibility mode or set CPU affinity the last few builds of redsn0w either if any, or was that just RC15 or something?
Jeremy - May 8, 2011 at 12:39pm
I think I depends on the computer set up. I always had to use compatibility mode but never set my affinity.

Open TinyUmbrella and uncheck "set hosts to Cydia on exit" in the advanced tab click apply and save. Open iTunes and restore again should work now.

Yup and if that doesnt work look up how to clear gs.apple from your hosts file. Do that and be sure to reboot computer. Should fix it
