How To: Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS With RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 [Windows]

Earlier today we told you that the Dev-Team have updated RedSn0w to version 0.9.9b6. RedSn0w was updated to version 0.9.9b6 to fix various bugs when jailbreaking iOS 5. While a majority of these bugs were mostly specific to users jailbreaking their iPhone 3GS (running the 06.15.00 baseband), the Dev-Team notes RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 provides both functional and cosmetic fixes for jailbreaking the iOS 5 firmware.
Note #1: We recommend jailbreaking iOS 5 with RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 even if you are already jailbroken on iOS 5. If you are going to re-jailbreak your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS with RedSn0w 0.9.9b6, just ensure you uncheck the install Cydia option.
Note #2: RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 does not allow you to create custom IPSW files for preserving your baseband. This feature is coming soon.
Note #3: RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 is a tethered jailbreak and does not support jailbreaking the iPhone 4S.
Note# 4: If you would like to update to iOS 5 please click here to follow our detailed guide.

Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone With RedSn0w 0.9.9b6

Step 1) Download RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 for Windows from the iJailbreak Downloads Section or using the download mirror below:
Mirror #1: RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 (Windows)
Step 2) Once you have downloaded RedSn0w to your desktop you will need to launch it by clicking the executable file.
Step 3) With RedSn0w up and running you will then click the Jailbreak button.
Step 4) You will come to a screen where you will need to put your iPhone into DFU mode. Read through and follow the instructions presented to you which is to plug in and power off your iPhone and click the Next button.
Step 5) When you click the Next button you will need to follow the instructions presented to you to put your iPhone into DFU mode.
  • Hold down Power (corner) button for 5 seconds.
  • Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home (bottom center) button along with the Power button for 10 seconds.
  • Without releasing the home button, stop holding down the power button for up to 15 seconds.
Step 6) After you successfully enter DFU mode RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data. Once RedSn0w is done ensure the “Install Cydia” option is checked and click the Next button.
Step 7) RedSn0w will begin jailbreaking your iPhone. DO NOT interrupt or use your Mac during this time. When your iPhone is finished being jailbroken it will reboot into a jailbroken state.
Optional: Booting Tethered - When you Jailbreak your iPhone on iOS 5 (official version) you will have a tethered Jailbreak. Meaning in order for your iPhone to turn back on you will need to boot it using RedSn0w (this applies every time your iPhone looses power). To do this launch RedSn0w again and click the Extras Button > then click the Just boot button and you will need to put your iPhone into DFU mode again.
You can also follow our how to guide to booting a tethered jailbreak using RedSn0w on Windows by clicking here.

Downgrade iPhone 06.15.00 Baseband to 05.13.xx (iPhone 3G with Bootloader 5.8 Only)

An iSpazio reader found a method to perform the baseband 06.15.00 downgrade on iPhone 3G with Bootloader 5.8 In case you updated your iPhone 3G with Baseband 06.15.00 With Redsn0w trick and now wants to go back to stock baseband, following is the guide for you.
Fuzzyband Downgrader detects your bootloader and baseband and downgrade it with a simple click if your bootloader is vulnerable to Fuzzyband . Fuzzyband Downgrader available in Cydia, just refresh your sources and search for Fuzzyband and install the application. But you need to do little more effort with fuzzyband and following are the step by step instructions.
Please Note :
  • Downgrading works from any version greater than 05.13.xx It will put your baseband back at version 05.13.xx which is hackable by ultrasn0w.
  • Downgrading only works on iPhone 3G with 05.08 (5.8) Bootloader from the factory. This is a very limited number of phones that were released in the first few weeks of the 3G production cycle.
  • If you do not know your bootloader then you can run Fuzzyband and it will report the version number for you.
  • iPhone 3GS and large numbers of iPhone 3G aren’t supported by the Fuzzyband, so in case your baseband is updated then wait for Dev team/GeoHot to release any workaround. This may take weeks or months.
This is what you need to have:
  • iPhone 3G Jailbroken
  • Fuzzyband installed via Cydia;
  • afc2add installed via Cydia;
  • iFunBox (for Windows) or DiskAid (for Mac);
  • certificate for use with Fuzzyband Download it HERE
This is what you need to do:

  1. download the certificate from 06.15.00.cert ICE2- HERE;
  2. Install fuzzyband through cydia,
  3. connect the computer to the iPhone 3G,
  4. Start iFunBox and click File, then go to Applications /, drap and drop the file you downloaded (ICE2-06.15.00.cert);
  5. At this point you must disconnect the iPhone from your computer and start Fuzzyband (which you previously installed from Cydia);
  6. in Fuzzyband you will see your current version of the baseband (which should be 6.15) and have the opportunity to downgrade to version 5.13.
  7. Now just click on downgrade baseband, thats it!
Once you have downgraded, Go to Settings –> About, and scroll down to check your Baseband which should now read 05.13.xx. Now just go to cydia and install ultrasn0w, thats it!
But, remember to repeat the same  process if you update your iphone 3g.
