Redsn0W Latest Version 5 1

Redsn0W Latest Version 5 1
Version 0.9b3 was released for Windows and Mac OS X, and it allows iOS 3.0 through 3.1.2 to be jailbroken. It includes support for all devices except the iPod touch (3rd generation), and supports a tethered jailbreak on iPhone 3GS units and iPod touch (2nd generation) units with new bootroms. In addition, this version supports custom boot and recovery mode logos, as well as verbose mode on bootup.
Version 0.9.10b1 adds support for iOS 4.2.6 through 5.0.1 (though iOS 4.2.9, 4.2.10, 4.3.4, 4.3.5, and 5.0 are tethered on devices invulnerable to the 0x24000 Segment Overflow). This build of redsn0w is not capable of jailbreaking S5L8940 or newer devices.
The popular Redsn0w jailbreak utility has been updated to bring untethered jailbreaks to iOS 5.1.1 on most iDevices. Versioned as redsn0w 0.9.12b1, the tool supports the following hardware on 5.1.1: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen, and Apple TV1 and ATV2. The A5 support is identical to that found in the recently released Absinthe 2 for iOS 5.1.1, which focused on the new iPad and iPhone 4S.

Apple is clearly cracking the productivity whip in their iOS team offices and have wasted no time at all in producing and pushing out an update to their mobile operating system, taking the latest version to 5.1.1. While the latest release might offer some additional features, standard bug fixes and security patches, it also serves to keep the jailbreak development teams on their toes by forcing them to push an update where appropriate for their tools.

Because RedSn0w used to require you to update your device to a newer version of iOS in order to jailbreak it, we used to strongly suggest that those of you who unlock the iPhone stay away from RedSn0w, as it might cause you to lose your ability to unlock.
You can download RedSn0w from our downloads section. You will see that there are several versions available there, but we suggest you always use the latest version available. RedSn0w usually is compatible with older iPhone firmwares, so even if you want to jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 for example, you might still want to download the newer version of RedSn0w.
RedSn0w has the ability to perform both tethered and untethered jailbreaks depending on the device and the firmware version the device is running. An untethered jailbreak is the most desirable because it allows you to reboot your device at will without needing to perform a tethered boot with the aid of a computer.
Jailbreaking your iDevice with RedSn0w is extremely simple as long as you follow the directions. Every time a new firmware is confirmed to be jailbreakable, we will post a new video that shows you how. The latest jailbreakable firmware is iOS 5.1.1. Please see the video below that shows how to jailbreak this firmware with RedSn0w using DFU traditional method. This method works with A4 devices and below only. For this reason, it is preferable if you use the non-DFU method below, unless you meet special circumstances outlined here.
With the release of RedSn0w 0.9.12b1, you can now jailbreak A5 devices on iOS 5.1.1 (iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPad 3) using the Rocky Racoon exploit. This jailbreak was previously not incorporated into RedSn0w; instead you had to rely on the standalone Absinthe tool, or the Rocky Racoon untethered jailbreak tweak from Cydia. With the latest version of RedSn0w, it is now possible to untether jailbreak A5 devices running iOS 5.1.1. This method also works with A4 devices and below running iOS 5.1.1. This is the preferred method to use when jailbreaking with RedSn0w.
Stitching is a feature that allows you to create an all encompassing IPSW firmware file that can always be used regardless of whether or not Apple is still signing that particular firmware. Stitching combines both the firmware file with the SHSH blob for that device to allow you to downgrade at anytime. This is a highly recommended procedure to do every time a new Firmware version is released. It will ensure that you can always easily go back to a previous firmware with minimum steps. Please see the following video tutorial to learn more about stitching. Note: Stitching is not yet compatible with iPhones.

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 5.1 for all supported iOS devices and as always, Dev Team folks have been quick enough to push an update to their popular jailbreak tool as well i.e Redsn0w 0.9.10b6. The latest Redsn0w brings iOS 5.1 jailbreak support for iPhone 3GS / iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G / iPod touch 4G and the original iPad. A5 devices i.e iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are currently not supported.

Well to be honest this is not a technical error with redsn0w unable to recognize specified IPSW (4.0 iOS firmware)while jailbreaking your iPhone. It just takes abit of common sense to avoid and / or fix this error because redsn0w is simply not able to recognize the ipsw file that you specified, means either redsn0w have some problem or the ipsw file that you are using. 041b061a72
