redsn0w is an iDevice jailbreaking tool for OS X and Windows. Originally called QuickPwn, but due to exploitation of the name by www.quickpwn.com, version 0.7 was renamed to redsn0w and added unlocking of supported devices.
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.
Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 has been released for download for both Mac OS X and Windows, and it allows you to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone. This new version of redsn0w is particularly valuable to those wanting to unlock their iPhone from baseband 05.14 and 05.15 because it prepares the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G for unlocking with ultrasn0w.
Right click and run as administrator 1st, then start redsn0w and then go into the the task manager (press alt+ctrl+del). There you have got to go to the tab processes. Right-click on redsn0w and click on the last option. There you have to deactivate CPU0 and let CPU1 on. give redsn0w a high priority too.
Had the same problem. you have got to start redsn0w and then gointo the the task manager (press alt+ctrl+del). There you have got to go to the tab processes. Right-click on redsn0w and click on the last option. There you have to deactivate CPU0 and let CPU1 on. If you want to be sure that there will nothing come between the process of jailbreaking give redsn0w a high priority too.Hope this helps some of you.
Step 6: Sit back and enjoy while redsn0w will do all the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone and/or iPod touch will restart automatically and you will find it jailbroken on the latest iOS 4.1 firmware.
Yo tengo Win7 y arregle el problema que no pasaba de tres rayas en la parte de downloading jailbreak data, con ejecutar redsn0w con compatibilidad con Windows XP SP3, con eso debe de bastar para que te vaya, suerte!!
Hola ya hice el JB con redsn0w aunque no lo logre en los primeros intentos hasta que lo configure en compatibilidad con Win xp 2 y fue rapidisimo, pero ahora no abre la camara, el ipod y settings y parece que cydia tiene un error, alguna idea =D
Esta es una versión beta de redsn0w para iPhone3G y iPod Touch 2G con FW 4.1 o 4.0. Utiliza el mismo exploit pwnage2 en modo DFU que hemos estado usando desde los días 2.x. No incluye el exploit SHAtter desarrollado por pod2g. Apple no revela nada nuevo con este jailbreak.

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.

Redsn0w is a little bit different jailbreak tool than other tools. Other than the installing Cydia, Redsn0w offers many extra features such as enable multitasking, enable wallpapers, enable battery percentage and more. Use the following screenshot to get more redsn0w options. 1e1e36bf2d
