Jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G with redsn0w 0.9.6b1 on Windows



redsn0w 0.9.6b1 was released to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G a few weeks ago. At that time, the release was Mac only. It could also be used to jailbreak iOS 4.2 beta, although with bugs, on the above-mentioned iOS devices. The wait is over now and redsn0w 0.9.6b1 is available for Windows users.

The method to jailbreak is the same for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G. Don’t use redsn0w if you want to unlock your iPhone because ultrasn0w doesn’t support the baseband on iOS 4.1/4.2 yet.

Remember this update by the Dev Team while jailbreaking your iPhone/iPod Touch with redsn0w on Windows:

Update: Any Windows users seeing “Waiting for reboot” for too long (more than 20 seconds or so), please try “shaking” the JB process by unplugging then replugging your USB cable (while letting redsn0w continue to run).  Also, try using a USB port “closer” to your computer (as opposed to on your monitor or behind another hub).  We’re still tweaking the Windows flow and so any feedback you can provide will help

Follow these guides, but just replace the Mac mentions with the Windows redsn0w app:
