Diese Anleitung zeigt, wie man das iPhone 4 mit Firmware 4.2.1 mit RedSn0w für Windows jailbreakt. Die Mac Version dieses Tutorials findest du hier.

Zu diesem Zeitpunkt kann nur ein "tethered" Jailbreak durchgeführt werden. Das bedeutet, dass RedSn0w benötigt wird, um das jailbroken iPhone zu booten. Falls du auf eine niedrigere Firmware jailbreaken möchtest, findest du das Tutorial hier.

Für iOS 4.2.1 ist noch kein Unlock verfügbar, wer diesen benötigt sollte nicht updaten.

Schritt 1
Erstelle einen Ordner auf dem Desktop, den du Pwnage nennst.

Lade dir RedSn0w von hier herunter und platziere es im Pwnage-Ordner. Verfahre ebenso mit der Firmware 4.2.1

4.2.1 (4): iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

Entpacke das redsn0w Archiv im selben Ordner.

Schritt 2
Verbinde das iPhone mit deinem PC und starte iTunes
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Wähle dein iPhone auf der linken Seite aus. Halte nun Shift gedrückt und klicke auf Wiederherstellen. Wiederherstellen wird bevorzugt, da es keine Platzverschwendung auf dem iPhone verursacht.

Schritt 3
Nachdem iTunes den Vorgang abgeschlossen hat, öffne den Pwnage-Ordner und starte die redsn0w Applikation aus dem redsn0w-Ordner, welchen wir zuvor entpackt haben.

Schritt 5
Wähle die 4.2.1 Firmware ipsw aus dem Pwnage-Ordner und klicke aufOpen.

Schritt 8

Stelle sicher, dass Cydia ausgewählt ist und klicke auf Next, um fortzufahren.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Schritt 9
Schließe das iPhone an den Computer an und schalte es AUS und klicke auf Next.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Step Ten
RedSn0w führt dich nun Schritt für Schritt in den DFU Modus. Für weitere Hilfe im DFU Modus siehe hier
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Halte Home und Power für 10 Sekunden gedrückt.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Lass Power los und halte weiterhin Home gedrückt, bis RedSn0w das Gerät erkennt.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Schritt 11
Dein iPhone wird nun neustarten.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Schritt 12
RedSn0w lädt nun RAM DIsk und Kernel auf das iPhone.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Schritt 13
RedSn0w benachrichtigt dich, sobald der Vorgang abgeschlossen ist. Klicke aufFinish. Nachdem das iPhone den Neustart vollzogen hat (ca. 5 Minuten), ist es jailbroken und Cydia erscheint auf dem HomeScreen.
How to: iPhone 4 Jailbreak mit RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]

Um mit RedSn0w in den Jailbreak zu booten, wähle Just boot tethered right now im Optionsfenster und klicke auf Next.

Need help, JB freezes on Uploading ramdisk
Yammer - February 3, 2011 at 2:06pm
Every time I go through the setup with redsn0w, hold all the buttons as directed, once it gets to the point where it says uploading ramdisk it just freezes. Never moves again. Sometimes on the first bar, sometimes on the fourth, etc... I can't go any further, please advise! Thanks, Yammer

Can I jailbreak (factory unlocked, so don't need unlock) my iphone 3gs with 4.1.2 version with this jailbreak? Or does it have to be an iphone 4?
kevin - January 26, 2011 at 2:40pm
whats going on with this jb? i follow the instructions and get it done, but then cydia crashes and my phone reboots and all i get is the apple logo? then i have to reboot my phone, any one else had this?
Mo - January 27, 2011 at 6:53am
After any cydia update or switch your phone off and on again you must boot tethered again.once you get every thing working dont do any more update.it should work fine than.
khim - January 26, 2011 at 12:10am
hi ! i just JB my iphone 4 version 4.2.1 ~ Everything looks fine, one question.. I plug in the iphone to computer, it will not recognize by itunes ? i can't do any sync... It's normal or abnormal? please advise...
Mo - January 26, 2011 at 5:19am
No this very abnormal ,the phone should work fine with any computer you plug in. try different USB port restart you computer and last try the boot tethered again.
Thala - June 3, 2011 at 7:37am

ankitvp - January 21, 2011 at 4:23am
i have a factory unlocked iphone4 4.2.1 03.10.01, my question is 1. if i JB it, will i loose the unlock? 2. do i hav to save SHSH using TU? 3. if in future i upgrade it to 4.3 or whatever, will i loose the unlock? Please help...too confused thanx so much
Tara - January 21, 2011 at 6:50pm
You will never lose your unlock by JB or upgrading to a new firmware (4.3 or 4.4 or any). The worst will be that you have to restore using itunes. Your iphone wil aways remain unlocked.
ankitvp - January 21, 2011 at 7:35pm
thanx!! phew!! now I can sleep in peace :)
Ridi - January 2, 2011 at 10:39am

redsonw wont recognoze the ispw file running new iphone 4 4.2.1
jason - December 26, 2010 at 5:31pm
JB seems to have gone through without any problems. I click on the Cydia icon and nothing happens. I do the 'Just boot tethered right now' and I'm able to get into Cydia. If I install any program, it wont finish booting up. It hangs up with the Apple logo. At this point, I'm unable to shut it down completely so I can try to reboot into tethered again, so I have to restore it and start over. Windows 7 64x, redsn0w 9.6b4, iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore Any ideas?
Mo - December 26, 2010 at 6:33pm
When you finish installing cydia don't do any updates and don't restart your iPhone,you can install installus but make sure you Install the right version.
Jay - January 14, 2011 at 3:27am

meganOUFC - December 15, 2010 at 5:54am
Hi :) Jailbroke the phone fine, then installed a arsenal theme which then 'cashed' the phone , by that i mean, apple logo for ages then off then apple logog, over and over. so put in recovery mode and restored. now when i try and jailbreak the jailbreak doesnt gp further than stage 2..... waiting for reboot. so never even goes as far as actually jailbreaking the phone ( black screen followed by white writing and then pineapple logo) any help appreciated. thanks
Mo - December 15, 2010 at 4:07pm
Make sure you using a computer with USB 2.0 and make sure the iPhone is activated
MeganOUFC - December 15, 2010 at 6:25pm
Hi thanks for replying. iPhone is 100% activated and how do I know if I have USB 2.0? Thankyou
Mo - December 16, 2010 at 5:30am
When you plug your IPhone to the computer dos it say "The USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a High Speed USB 2.0 port." ??? and try it with a different usb port too this might help.
MeganOUFC - December 16, 2010 at 5:51am

Bill - December 5, 2010 at 2:19pm
This will lock your phone. It will update your baseband to the most recent, so don't do it if you need to unlock it.
Jjh - December 5, 2010 at 7:19pm
