    I have NOT done this. I am sharing a guide composed from other guides.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a guide for how to use this software. You should check that your version of iOS is jailbreakable. Always use the latest version of redsn0w if you're not prompted to do otherwise.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    redsn0w DOES NOT preserve your baseband.
    If you rely on ultrasn0w DO NOT USE redsn0w. Use sn0wbreeze if you want to preserv your old baseband (01.59.00, 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 or 06.15.00) and be able to continue to unlock your phone.
    If you have a newer, nonunlockable baseband, you're out of luck. Sorry, there is NO WAY for you to downgrade it.

    You need
    iPhone
    Windows compatible PC with Windows XP, Vista or 7 (32 or 64 bit)
    Data cable connected to an USB-port on your computer do NOT use a hub in you keyboard, monitor or dedicated hub
    iTunes

    Download redsn0w from http://www.redsn0w.us/2010/03/download-direct-links-jailbreak-guides.html and extract it
    Download the IPSW for your device from http://getios.com/

    Let's get started

    0. Skip to step 4 if you're already running the software version you which to jailbreak.


    1. Connect your iDevice and open iTunes (if it doesn't do it on connect)


    2. Select your iDevice from the left sidebar and now SHIFT-click on Restore

    3. Select the IPSW you've downloaded in the pre-steps and let it start restoring
    Get some popcorn and a Coke, relax and let iTunes do it's thing
    [img width=800 height=500]http://web.comhem.se/andnewman/dailymobile/HowTo-redsn0w/3.png[/img]

    When it asks either restore an old backup or even better make it a new device and enjoy a faster device


    4. Open redsn0w.


    5. Click on Browse



    6. Select your IPSW-file and hit Open


    Let it check the file



    7. Click next when it has successfully identified the file



    8. Now check the options you want. You should check Cydia to continue, the multitasking gestures is nice if you want to increase the lifespan of your poor home-button. Click Next



    9. Now follow the on-screen instructions.
    Plug the iDevice in to your computer (if you haven't yet), and only then power it off.


    They are as follows:
    • 1. Hold the power button
    • 2. Keep holding the power button and now also press down the home button for 10 seconds
    • 3. Release the power button, but keep the home button pressed fro 15 more seconds


    You're now in DFU-mode and redsn0w will start the jailbreaking automatically. When it's done it will reboot.
    If you get the waiting for reboot message for more than 20 continuous seconds unplug the iDevice and reconnect it without exiting redsn0w. Also try to reconnect it to another USB-port, if you have a stationary computer use one on the back if you continue to get the waiting for reboot message for mroe than 20 seconds per try.

    When the process start, grab yourself some more popcorn and Coke.
    When it's done, enjoy the freedom of a jailbreaked iDevice!

    Default Re: How to jailbreak your iDevice with redsn0w (PC and Mac)

    On redsn0w 0.9.9b7 there is the file "boot-ipt4g." What is it for? And is it safe to delete it?
