A huge THANK YOU to anyone that helped contribute to this glorious win over the fascists at apple who continue to believe open source is not the way. For those of us who do not believe in conforming to the will of company software design and have gained freedom for one's own devices, this calls for celebration. I, and so many others that have now broken the chains of these unneeded restraints, deeply thank you for your efforts and expertise where we unfortunately lack. You guys (and girls) are the beacon we look to when we need superheroes to save us from Apple's evil plight. Again, Thank You All.

I keep getting a "No identifying data fetched" message and then nothing. Any ideas?

Does this work with iPhone 4 S???
James - December 29, 2011 at 2:35am
No. A4 device refers to Iphone 4. 4S is an A5 device

Is there anyway to hacktivate using redsn0w?
ben - December 28, 2011 at 3:47am
after jailbreaking 4th gen ipod touch on 5.0.1 cydia keeps saying it cannot comply can anyone help me fix this please? thank you in advance and also than you for the info on how to jailbreak
Crossroad - December 28, 2011 at 1:40am
Can't add any repositories in cydia... iPhone 3gs
ktula - December 28, 2011 at 6:44pm
Delete all sources except Cydia and then add them back on the main Cydia page (there's a tab called Cydia) by clicking on "More Package Sources".

Anyone having a problem with iBooks app - seems as prior to the previous Redsn0w release, iBooks crashes when booting from SpringBoard? I've ran the installation over the top of my untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak. Can anyone confirm the iBooks problem?
Alejandro Iván
Alejandro Iván - December 28, 2011 at 3:08am
It's a known bug with this jailbreak (it's a different technique than before jbs). I actually use A LOT iBooks, so I unjailbroke my iPhone until a fix is done. The rest of the phone seemed ok :)
CydiaUser - December 28, 2011 at 7:10am
same here, iBooks doesn't work after untethered JB
Justin Blasizza
Justin Blasizza - December 28, 2011 at 10:12am
Thought so. It's a shame as they'd fixed this in previous version of Redsn0w, tethered of course.
Mark - December 28, 2011 at 12:42pm
There is a fix in the insanely repo called iBooksFix2 that works. It's temporary but at least it works.
ben - December 27, 2011 at 9:53pm
i have the iPhone 4, the baseband 2.10.04. I bought it two years ago with out unlock. Is there anyway that ipod2 could unlock?
shameer - December 29, 2011 at 4:09pm
the 4 wasn't out 2 yrs ago
abhi86jain - December 27, 2011 at 8:06pm
For those asking regarding Gevey Sim. Yes it is safe to update on 5.0.1 as long as you PRESERVE THE BASEBAND. (Iphone4>5.0.1>untethered>tmobile) Hope this helps :)
sky - December 28, 2011 at 1:44am
thank for infor
xxaznxx - December 29, 2011 at 1:12am
so...fw 4.3.3 bb 4.10.01 apparently can be unlocked with gevey on 5.0.1. but if it happens to not work..can i revert with ifaith?
abhi86jain - December 29, 2011 at 8:54pm
Try updating your phone with custom baseband 5.0.1, if you are on 5.0.1 with custom baseband and tethered jailbreak. You do not need to re-install the custom firmware for untetethered jailbrek. Just open cydia and install Corona Untether that will make your phone tethered to Untethered. Just make sure to preserve your baseband. Gevey sim works perfectly on 4.10.01 Baseband.
Anonym - December 27, 2011 at 7:14pm
iPhone 4, (04.11.08). I had a successful jb, but now ibooks is giving a syncing error and won't connect. Gives a error messege saying there is a problem with the configuration of your iphone. Please restore with itunes and redownload ibooks.
BeAn - December 27, 2011 at 10:03pm
i am getting the same message have u managed to find a fix for it
Mark - December 28, 2011 at 12:43pm
Fix in the insanely repo works
Ju4nX - December 27, 2011 at 6:52pm
when you uninstall appsync and the ipod touch 4G resprings all the apps but the newstand are missing and i have to restart the ipod.
stick - December 27, 2011 at 6:44pm
can anyone confirm if their gevey ultra still works after updating/jailbreaking 5.0.1? it was reported a while back that apple fixed the gevey exploit in 5.0b2 but ive been hearing conflicting reports ever since. thanks!
Ivan - December 27, 2011 at 8:01pm
Gevey ultra will work on IOS 4.x and 5.x as long as you preserve your baseband. The latest redsn0w has the option of creating custom 5.0.1 firmware with no baseband update. I have an iphone 4 with gevey ultra running ios 5.0 and gonna update to 5.0.1 tonight.
Poseidon93 - December 28, 2011 at 9:44pm
@Ivan did you update to ios 5.0.1? can you confirm that the gevey ultra is working? i heard that the other gevey are working(supreme, pro) but there are some issues with the ultra.
stick - December 28, 2011 at 10:10pm
i can confirm that the gevey ultra works on 5.0.1 w/ baseband 04.11.01. however, after a few restores and rejailbreaks it seems as though this jailbreak is extremely buggy. not sure if thats caused by the gevey or not, but it is pretty annoying. kinda wish i stayed on 4.3.5.
Poseidon93 - December 29, 2011 at 5:14pm
What bugs are there? I'm on 4.3.3 and i would like ro upgrade it .Thanks in advance
Poseidon93 - December 29, 2011 at 5:49pm
Wait a minute, you wrote that the ultra work with 04.11.01? You mean 04.10.01 right?
MattC - December 27, 2011 at 5:14pm
ok, not having much luck here. Have tried on two seperate pc's. redsn0w runs ok, following directions, enter DFU mode, when iphone starts to boot, redsn0w crashes. Running Win7, each have 4 GB or ram and have no other issues. Anyone else seeing this? Probably try on mac @home tonight but that is a pain in the balls
Seno - December 27, 2011 at 5:55pm
try edit the compatibility the redsn0w.exe into windows xp (service pack 2) - (properties - compatibility - check the "Run this program compatibility for" and select windows xp (service pack 2) HTH
MattC - December 27, 2011 at 9:06pm
thanks, but compat mode didnt help.
Me - December 27, 2011 at 4:43pm
I got stuccoed at patching kernel half way
Tiestofan - December 27, 2011 at 4:30pm
Updated mine and everything's great! Thanks!
Ahmed - December 27, 2011 at 4:13pm
Finally for a untethered jailbreak, been waiting all this time. Can't wait to jailbreak now lol, without worrying to reboot!! 😉 Good job Pod2G!
Brandon - December 27, 2011 at 4:07pm
This is nice, I just opened cydia on my tethered jailbroken iPhone 4 and installed the package "corona 5.0.1" and now my phone is untethered. This is a first because you would normally have to hook the phone up to the computer and run the jailbreak again. Jailbreaking evolved.
RAVITEJA - December 27, 2011 at 4:02pm
Please check with UNLOCK boyz we have been waiting for it good job with jailbreak but unlock can kill apple. comeon go with UNLOCK for 4:11:08

what is hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration ?
Humbeegj1 - December 27, 2011 at 3:47pm
I have been waiting for this but have a question. I accidentally updated my iPhone to 5.0.1 when it got released, I'm a little confused if I'll be able to benefit from this jailbreak. Can someone please clarify ? I'm a newb
das - December 27, 2011 at 2:48pm
will this expose the exploit they used and undermine the A5-devices jailbreak?
Jim - December 27, 2011 at 3:38pm
Of course. That's why they did it. Seriously, why would they simply tell Apple about the exploit when they can put all of this work into JBing the phone. Thanks for your very educated concern, though.
djmactech - December 27, 2011 at 2:46pm
Any idea if the dev team is close to an unlock for baseband 4.x?
das2 - December 27, 2011 at 2:50pm
idiot, they probably wont release unlocks anymore since apple sells FACTORY UNLOCKED phones for a while
djmactech - December 27, 2011 at 4:10pm
Stupid, Apple has been releasing factory unlocked iPhones since version 1. Immature dumb ass.
NaZz - December 27, 2011 at 2:33pm
Okay, all I need now is an unlock.
Sam - December 27, 2011 at 1:51pm
It's seems Apple has block their server from signing the firmware update. Any advice? I'm unable to update to 5.0.1 from 4.3.3 for Iphone 4.
Romario - December 27, 2011 at 2:14pm
Hi, What is the error code If "21" then just remove ...gs.apple.com on the hosts file
Jacob Nørgaard
Jacob Nørgaard - December 27, 2011 at 3:09pm
I can't upgrade either - over the air also downloads, then fails. No code. Just fails.
Jered - December 27, 2011 at 3:32pm

ppeewang - December 27, 2011 at 4:05pm
Start----> Run and copy and past the following: notepad C:windowssystem32driversetchosts
Jered - December 27, 2011 at 5:03pm

visitor - December 27, 2011 at 1:40pm

fnarvel - December 27, 2011 at 1:28pm

fnarvel - December 27, 2011 at 1:06pm
Working Smoothly but with some issues on 3GS, The native apps lost their icons in the jailbreak process, I am unable to see the safari, Itunes and Gamecentre icons, the apps are working though any ways, thanks for the JB
Yaghoob - December 27, 2011 at 1:02pm

THANKS!!!! :)
Boywonda - December 27, 2011 at 12:20pm
Oh man, I got too excited and didn't read the post correctly. Thought it said tethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S *facepalm* I ran for my USB cable and booted back in2 MAC from Windows. LMAO *sigh* FAIL!!! On my part
Gurkha - December 27, 2011 at 12:28pm
Yea, I almost did the same thing. Lack of JB is only thing keeping me from upgrading to 4S from my 3GS.
Vijay - December 27, 2011 at 12:10pm
Great Work guys long awaited JB is here nice gift for x-mas
Gary - December 27, 2011 at 12:02pm
