iPhone Dev-Team Updates RedSn0w to Resolve Issue With MobileSubstrate

Posted December 29, 2011 at 3:57pm by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w to resolve a problem with MobileSubstrate that occurred when rerunning the jailbreak.

The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the "Install Cydia" option if it's already installed).

You can download the latest version of redsn0w from here.

You can find instructions on how to use redsn0w to perform an untethered jailbreak using the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard.

Just downgraded to 4.3.3. nothing is working on 5.0.1. All sources are not working sinful which is my favorite source isn't working nothing is comparable with 5.0 any ways like cydia apps. I am going to use 4.3.3 unitll everything is updated on cydia... Because right now its all messed up Also why can't jailbreak with my macbook pro ? Redsn0w 10B3 couldn't go beyond patch kenel it stops galway then it crashes..I had to use my other laptop WIN7..???
CYD - December 30, 2011 at 8:12am
dont upgrade if you dont want to.. so many repositories out there..not just sinful..i see that xsellize is awesome though..and mine working like charm until i wrote this.

Sinful repo works they just moved it due to some issue. The other repos work fine as well but they are slow because of the increased traffic. Redsn0w for mac work fine for me (MacBook air). If b3 doesn't work try b2 and then just install mobile substrate again.

So wait a second........ U cant jailbreak using a macbook pro???? WTF really??? Thats all i have.... Please respond...... Thx!!!
Me - December 30, 2011 at 10:49pm
For some reason I can't jailbreak using my Macbook Pro.. it stops at patching Kernel.Halfway ...none of them work B1,B2 or B3.. I have no idea why... Also my safari wouldn't t open anymore either.. I think this jailbreak it is not stable at all...remember when Geohot made jailbreak that shit was working properly on first try... By the way what happened to sinful? where did they move? thanks
me - December 30, 2011 at 11:09pm

Whatrutalkingabout - December 31, 2011 at 1:29am
Update..... Well i was succesfull in jailbreaking my iphone 4 using my macbook pro......... I did what u did, i upgraded ti 5.0.1 through my iphone and when jailbreaking it didn not ask for the ipsw i only had to run redsnow b3 TWICE i dont know why twice but it worked, once u see that pineapple everything was good..... It did take twice to do it though, first time when it disnt work the kernel took forever to move from 35% i thought it wasnt gonna move from there..... The second time i tried it was really fast.... I hope u can jailbreak urs!!! :) jailbreakin is awesome shit!!!

Also IBooks doesn't work after the jailbreak
Help - December 30, 2011 at 2:22am
Has anyone had the same problem? When I upgraded from 5.0 to 5.0.1 untethered it wouldn't let me restore my back up and the restore and update in iTunes is gray'd out. I have never seen this before...
nour - December 31, 2011 at 12:47pm
yes I faced the same issue and I was shocked :D but no worries all u hv to do is to wait and don't unplug and don't close itunes while u r doing the restore, till everything is finished and the lock screen is show up on ur iphone, then Itunes will automatically ask u if u want to restore ur previous or ur last saved backup
ronron - December 30, 2011 at 12:55am
I have already JB my iphone 4 with b1, and I tried with b3 (without check "Install cydia") and guess what? my iphone stuck in JB mode (ERROR!, Giving up...bla bla bla) *sigh
ronron - December 30, 2011 at 1:00am
I restart my iphone (hold both power button + home until apple logo appears) and wooow my iphone wake up normally again, I don't wanna try another way before its clear recommended by another user. *sigh
ronron - December 30, 2011 at 1:09am
Ok, cydia crash.. WTF. I will backup all of my important data and restore my iphone 4, JB my iphone 4 again
Julio - December 29, 2011 at 11:05pm

Almost all the good apps not working my3g.. For instance sinfuliphonerepo Not working dev ultraniw not showing had to use different Source to activate it.. Loading sources not working I'm going back to 4.3.3 until all this mess is sor it out
tommy - December 29, 2011 at 8:44pm
mmmmm question...why would someone rerun redsn0w over a existing jailbreak? can you update to 5.0.1 in redsn0w without losing your tweeks, etc? that would be the only reason outside of a mistake that I could think of someone doing this...
Mitsun - December 29, 2011 at 7:38pm
i jailbroke my iPhone 4 with the b2 version of RedSn0w. Does this new b3 version affect me? Do I need to re-run it over my current jailbreak?
Michael - December 29, 2011 at 5:05pm
Cool. I wonder when (if?) they're gonna fix the problem with iBooks not running with JBiOS5
h0ckst4r - December 29, 2011 at 5:33pm
Search for iBooks Fix in Cydia
razzterror - December 29, 2011 at 7:37pm
All I did was: 1. Install iBooks through the App Store 2. Copy from /var/mobile/Applications/(iBook's coded folder)/ to /Applications using iFile (available in cydia) 3. Change CFBundleIdentifier in /Applications/ from to 4. Respring Thanks to robopolo...
Bean - December 30, 2011 at 9:11pm
If u get the ibooks error delete ibooks then reinstall but dont open it. In Cydia add this source. Then d/l ibooksfix 2 and it should work then. U can either keep or delete the source after that. It took me a while to d/l the source.
