iPhone Dev-Team Releases RedSn0w and PwnageTool Updates to Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1

Posted June 4, 2012 at 10:28am by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has released updates to PwnageTool, RedSn0w, and CInject that bring support for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak.

redsn0w allows owners of A4+earlier devices to install rocky-racoon two different ways:
● backup/restore method similar to Absinthe and cinject
● its traditional limera1n-based ramdisk install. If you have a lot of media on your A4 device (music, movies, TV shows, etc), then the ramdisk method is preferrred because it avoids any possibility of later problems related to syncing to iCloud (including Photo Stream and Music Match). The ramdisk method is not available for A5 devices or later because limera1n can't be used. If you'd like to use redsn0w's ramdisk method, just be sure to put the A4 device in DFU or Recovery mode before starting redsn0w (otherwise it will immediately start to use the backup/restore method).

We've also added a new redsn0w feature specifically for those who got in on the SAM unlock: you can now include your SAM tickets as part of your initial ramdisk jailbreak of iPhone4 or earlier, or alternatively you can upload your SAM tickets to any device after its been jailbroken. redsn0w accepts either the individual SAM activation ticket plist file, or the entire zip file created by redsn0w's "Backup" button. As usual, redsn0w continues to cover all of its previous jailbreaks and untethers (so redsn0w-0.9.12b1 covers everything from 5.1.1 all the way back to 4.1).

PwnageTool also avoids any possible sync issues, but again it applies only to A4+earlier devices. If you unlock your iPhone with ultrasn0w or a commercial method, you must use PwnageTool to avoid updating your baseband otherwise you'll lose the unlock. PwnageTool will also jailbreak+untether the AppleTV2,1 5.0_2B206f (unless you customize the IPSW further, you'll have just basic SSH access to the device).

If you'd like to contribute to those that actually developed rocky-racoon, please visit here (any other links you may see are not going to the actual rocky-racoon developers, they're being diverted to other "related" or fraudulent accounts).

This particular jailbreak brought an unusual amount of fanfare and hoopla to the table, including "press releases" and other haughty silliness. We'd just like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that jailbreaking is about freedom, not fame and donations!

Guys, is there a way to upgrade your baseband of iphone4 from 4.10 to 1.59.0? Pls hlp.

Thank you guys. It worked for my 3GS which was on 4.1 and 6.15.0. The trick is to update without updating the base band. Steps: Download latest redsn0w and 5.1.1 firmware Use Ipsw option to build a custom Ipsw for u. Entre dfu mode. Redsn0w will put it in pawned dfu Update the phone with the custom ipsw( starting with BB) Finish. Jailbreak with redsn0w and then install ultrasn0w. Ensure the unofficial sim is not in. Good luck.

So, I have been able to jailbreak my iphone 3GS 5.1.1 using the new RedSn0w. Thanks a lot! But now i want to unlock the phone with Cydia, and when i go to the tutorials for "Unlock", its says in an update that "Apple has blocked this method" and to wait for a future unlock to be available. that was april 25th. Is it possible that no one has been able to unlock their iphones since then?? Is there another option? Please. Thanks
