I don't think that it's necessary to download a new ispw again. If you have upgrade your phone to 4.3.1 via itunes, then you should be able to locate the ispw downloaded by itunes in your computer.

On windows xp
Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

On Windows Vista/Windows 7:
Users\\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

On Mac:
~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

Just locate it, then copy it to another destination like desktop, or My documents and direct redsnow to that destination for jailbreaking.
No waist of time downloading anymore.

I just downloaded the required apps and followed the video instructions but I never get the pineapple screen. When the phone(4g) reboots it says I'm still at version 4.1 Any ideas?

tap on settings > general > about

then tell us what firmware version it shows.. if its saying your on 4.1 then maybe your choosing wrong fw or you really are on 41?


By the way it's an At&T phone

version: 4.1 (8B117)
firmware: 01.59.00

Comex claim that his patch wasn't implement in the untether by i0n1c, and i0n1c just confirm this. He's saying that this must be the reason why many cydia app are not working on the phone.

1- Back up your phone using itunes, after that restore your device via itune to the most recent firmware.

2- Now you will try to locate the firmware that has been install on your phone by itunes in your computer instead of downloading a new firmware that might not match the one installed in your phone. Firmware files have an .ipsw extension and can be found at the following locations:

a.) On Windows XP :
Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

b.) On Windows Vista/Windows 7:
Users\\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

c.) On Mac:
~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

3- Copy the firmware ""dont cut but copy"" to a a location in your computer, like on the desktop.

4- windows xp compatibility mode and runing as administrator, Run redsnow and direct redsnow to locate the firmware you've just copied to your desktop.

5- After redsnow firmware authetification finish press next and you should see redsnow patching kernel on going screen. When it finish patching the kernel a new window will open where only "install cydia" is selected. Leave everything there the way they are and just cilk next.

6- plug in your device to your computer ONLY AFTER THAT YOU SHOULD POWER OFF YOUR DEVICE.

7- follow redsnow instructions to enter DFU mode, and as soon as you notice that redsnow found the DFU mode, release the home button.

8- Leave the phone an your computer alone until redsnow enable "finish" button on its window.

9- Your device should restart after that and you will find cydia on the home screen of your phone.

10- you are good to go, and voila tout.

thanks bab2010

I didnt follow your instructions but i was able to google up what the problem is with my redsnow jailbreak. It turns out that i have to go to windows task manager and set the affinity to CPU 1 in order to bypass the updating ramdisk error crash. Here is the LINK for those ppl who has same problem as me!
