Today's iOS5b7 can be JB with last night's redsn0w b7
Dev-Team Blog - redsn0w iOS5beta but point it at b6 IPSW...annoying off-by-1 now

Update #7: Apple updated the iPad1 iOS5b6 IPSW without changing its version number or filename, so we’re releasing redsn0w 0.9.8b7 to handle both the original and changed IPSW. We’ve also added explicit support for a tethered 4.3.5/4.2.10 jailbreak (instead of pointing at the 4.3.4/4.2.9 IPSWs) and fixed a 4.2.10 problem.






All jailbreaks are Tethered jailbreak's

What iTunes Error 3194 Mean & How to Fix it!


What iTunes Error 3194 Mean

Whenever you restore a stock or custom IPSW of any firmware on your iDevice, iTunes request Apple servers to sign the IPSW with the ECID (Exclusive Chip ID) of your iDevice which is called SHSH Blob. As soon as new firmware gets released, Apple stops signing your ECID for old firmwares which result in iTunes 3194 error.
















How to Fix it while doing clean restore(updating)?

1: Use latest iTune's,Download from Here.

2nd Method:


  • In TinyUmbrella there is an option in the "Advanced" tab to "Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit" uncheck this box cause This will allow iTunes to talk to Cydia's cache server rather than Apples cache server.
  • Try to restore.

3rd Method:
  • Quit iTunes
  • Locate your hosts file, in Mac OS X this is /etc/hosts and in Windows this is c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
  • Open the hosts file with Administrator privileges
  • Remove the following lines to the very bottom of the hosts file:
  • 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
  • Connect your iPhone to the computer
  • Launch iTunes
  • Do Restore

Redsn0w_0.9.9b1 Released!



As promised MuscleNerd of iPhone-Dev has just released redsn0w 0.9.9b1 with some major improvements. New version of redsn0w, redsn0w 0.9.9 b1 comes with tons of new feature including automatic device detection in DFU mode and now you don’t need to select IPSW manually, it will detect and download required files from Apple servers for you.



Redsn0w 0.9.9b1 works on same device and firmwares but remeber it won”t detect or download iOS 5 beta files because they’re meant for developers only. You’ll have to manually select iOS 5 Beta IPSW files.

Here’s the complete change log and release notes of redsn0w 0.9.9b1:

A bunch of new features!

* uses DFU mode to try to automatically determine which device and FW you have
* fetches pieces of public IPSWs from Apple (once). Non-public IPSWs must be provided manually (once). It then caches those pieces for future use.
* "Just boot" is a tethered boot. Uses whatever “Preferences” you’ve set for boot logo and kernel boot-args
* "Pwned DFU" puts your device in a pwned DFU state for some of the iTunes stuff detailed below
* "Recovery fix" gets past 1015 types of errors (when baseband portion of restore fails). Should work on iOS5 beta too
* "Select IPSW" is for picking non-public IPSWs, or overriding auto-detection
* "SHSH blobs" has a bunch of options…
* "Fetch"– fetch current PARTIAL blobs on device. Puts this set PARTIAL of blobs on your computer as a plist. Checks if Cydia already has a full set for this device and build. If not, it submits this partial set and returns Cydia’s acknowledgement or rejection
* "Verify" – cryptographically verifies existing blob files from either redsn0w, TinyUmbrella, or Cydia server. You can select a whole bunch of blobs to verify at once if you want (like the TinyUmbrella directory)
* "Submit" – both verifies and submits one or more blob files to Cydia. This lets you copy your entire TinyUmbrella cache of blobs up to the Cydia server
* "Query" - queries the Cydia server for all available full or partial blobs for a given set of ECIDs
* "Stitch" – stitches either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a STOCK or CUSTOM IPSW

1. FULL blobs stitched to a STOCK IPSW gives you a completely self-contained signed IPSW that iTunes will accept without any tricks (no need to go into pwned DFU mode, no need to start TinyUmbrella TSS server, no need to redirect to Cydia server for blobs)
2. PARTIAL blobs stitched to any IPSW requires you to go into pwned DFU mode before running iTunes. No need to start TU or use Cydia though.
3. stitching either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a CUSTOM IPSW also requires a pwned DFU start before iTunes restores. No need to start TU or use Cydia though.
4. stitching is NOT yet supported on iPhones (well, at least not tested). Need to work out the baseband part of the restore process.
5. will eventually support fetching the blobs directly from Cydia instead of a file on your computer
