Upcoming Redsn0w To Include Downgrade Support For iPhone 4S, iPad 2 And 3rd-gen iPad

Redsn0w Downgrade 5.1.1 5.1 5.0.1 iPhone 4S iPad 2 iPad 3

According to MuscleNerd, an instrumental developer in the iOS-hacking community and arguably the face of the iPhone Dev Team, the next Redsn0w release will introduce downgrade support for newer iOS-based devices!

The upcoming release is said to include the ability to restore and downgrade with explicit support for the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2 and the new iPad; it even “stitches on the fly”.Jailbreak redsn0w downgrade

For those of you who are unaware, Apple changed the method used to sign firmwares for iOS 5 and up some time ago, thus rendering previous methods of downgrading useless on newer iOS-based devices.


Aside from iH8sn0w’s Tweets about a month ago that mentioned utilizing an “apticket” loophole to downgrade A5 (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) and A5X (3rd-generation iPad) devices, the promise of downgrading new devices was looking pretty grim; until now.

As for the ability to restore and stitch “on the fly”, Redsn0w will be able to grab SHSH blobs (which will still be required for downgrading, even on the new devices), merge them with a corresponding IPSW of your choosing and downgrade your device inside a single interface.

Unfortunately, as usual, there isn’t a set release date for this upcoming Redsn0w release – stay tuned for complete coverage.

    Question, when saving shsh blobs, should you be on 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 firmware when saving it?

    try putting ur device in dfu mode, then disconnect the cable from ur computer, then open redsnow till the jailbreak screen and start the process (after next option) it will ask ur to hold down the power button for dfu mode with a countdown etc, when u get to this screen insert the idevice cable and it shud not crash

    hey, im not sure what the chances of you answering this are…but i need you’re help. I’ve been watching your videos for a very long time and im quite an experianced jailbreaker. so when my friend needed his Iphone 3G jailbreaking and unlocking i was like sure no problem ill just upgrade to ipad baseband when i jailbreak using red snow. but redsnow is being really wierd. I open it up and select IPSW then go into jailbreak select all the features i want (including upgrade baseband) then as soon as i put it into DFU, it flashes to the instructions like normal if yu put it into dfu without instructions. then the program crashes? itunes says its in recovery mode. but when i hold home/sleep it restarts the iphone no problem. I’ve done this a good 30 times trying everything i’ve read saying to reinstall take down fire wall, run as admin, do this do that. and it wont work!!! please give me some idea as too why? BTW i’m using Redsnow 9.10b5 and i tried b6 also wouldnt work.
