redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 does not work in combination with ios4.0.1 ipsw...it says: unable to recognize...bla...solution: use ios4.0 ipsw for redsn0w at step 8! that worked for me!
Thanks for pointing out the mistake, we have corrected it.
But then you don't get IOS4.0.1 on the iphone but 4.0!
After JB, i have no internet connection. Can anybody help?
it does not load,says not compatable with this device,also will only let me choose the iTune back up?
i installed 4.0.1 and then tried to load it on redsn0w and i recieved an error, now i see that 4.0.1 wont work with redsn0w but now 4.0 wont restore onto my iphone. what to do?
Jailbroken and unlocked the 3G, everything working except from Youtube. It says "cannot connect to youtube". Any ideas what has happened?
It doesnt look corrected. Just used ios4.0.1 ipsw with redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 and it is not able to recognize like reported by schländer.any idea?
hi James this also happened to me put i fixed it. you have to open cydia then go to managethen sources then look for iphonemodding click on it look for push fix and install it and this will fix youtube.
i think that you should reset your network setting. i did it and it work for me. go to setting then general then reset then reset network settings.
does the data and mms work for 4.0.1? Please let me know!!
I cannot get past step 5 because when I select my iPhone 3g from the left menu, all it says is "The SIM card inserted in this phone does not appear to be supported", since I already updated (that's how I found out I lost my jailbreak... good job, me). Help??
Nevermind, looked elsewhere and found my answer
Ok, I'm following the instructions, and I restored the phone, and it showed the same thing "The SIM card inserted... is not supported". I made it so it shows the options to update or restore again. Trying to select the IPSW, it says "unable to recognize specified IPSW". WHyyyy? =/
Riddle me this, Batman... Why does my 3G running iOS4.0 (8A293) with Modem Firmware 05.13.04 on iTunes 9.2 on a Mac always show the dreaded "this device isn't eligible for the requested build" message when I try to restore to iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw? I don't get it. Everything worked about a month ago for my same, exact iPhone and now won't work for my wife's. Did something change? Should I upgrade to 4.0.1 and try again? A little help please...
me too, I've unlocked and jailbroken the phone about 3 times and everything else works fine but I cant make or recieve calls or messages, it says call failed.
I still get the same error where redsnow 0.9.5b5-5 is not able to recognize the 4.0.1 ipsw? I followed the instructions for the 4.0.1 and it's not working. Are you suggesting we use 4.0 instead or is 4.0.1 suppose to work somehow?
In step 8, you need to use the iOS 4.0 firmware file.
Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 for Mac does not recognize the iPhone1,2_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw firmware. I followed the instructions and I get the firmware not recognized error in redsn0w. iTunes will restore my 3G iPhone to the firmware just fine but once I'm suppose to open the firmware in redsn0w it fails!!! Has anyone had any luck with 4.0.1 firmware?
At this point it seems that redsn0w is broken for 4.0.1
OK, I'm confused. I have 4.0.1 on my iPhone so iTunes will not load the 4.0 onto my phone. So the only option is for me to load 4.0.1 and then try to load 4.0.1 into redsn0w? Or are you suggesting for me to update my iPhone with 4.0.1 restore and then in redsn0w open 4.0 instead?! I thought I was suppose to use the _current_ phone firmware ?
In step 8, you need to select the iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw firmware file rather than the iPhone1,2_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw file even if you are trying to jailbreak iOS 4.0.1. In the earlier steps, you have already restored your iPhone with iOS 4.0.1.
Good! Following the instructions i done it well by Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5(win) and iPhone1,2_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw . Now i am free!Thanks.
