    Hi. I have Jailbroken my iPhone 4 using Absinthe 2.0, I got it from www. redsn0w-download. com. I got 5.1.1 iOS and 4.12.01 baseband and it was successful even I accidentally unplugged the cord to my pc. Next thing that I want to try is unlock my phone, is it possible? Also what will happen if I upgrade my iPhone’s iOS in the future?

    It’s good that u tried Redsn0w but most of us used Absinthe 2.0.4, it never gives problems its fast and you don’t need to put your iPhone in DFU mode. Download it from this website, plug your iPhone and click jailbreak.:)

    Do you have to jailbreak on a completely new iPhone? My phone has apps/music/pictures on it and when I tried another method (absinth) it dindnt work and deleted my pictures, contacts and messed up some music. I have seen some other places that mention you need to restore, jailbreak, then restore from a backup to get all your stuff back on but that doesn’t seem right. Wouldn’t the backup delete Cydia and undo the jailbreak?

    Thanks in advance, I’m thinking about giving the ambove method a shot

  21. manju says:

    could you please help me in downloading the redsnow installer. after downloading i got a zip file and if i try to open dat, am getin some error like the archive is unknnown or damage..

  22. Maher says:

    I’m currently running on 3GS [4.1 (8B117)], and followed your instructions, but when the task was completed, the software version stayed the same? What did I do wrong?

  23. vhs says:

    1. you have to backup & restore from itunes factory firmware.
    2. try redsnow again, this time it will work, cydia icon will appear, all will be well.

  24. Umesh says:
