Windows users can now jailbreak and unlock their iPhones with redsn0w 0.7 (redsnow). iPhone Dev blog has now released redsn0w for both windows and Mac, to jailbreak and unlock iPhone 2G, iPod touch and iPod touch 2G.
Unlike Pwnage, redsn0w (redsnow) is a multi-platform jailbreaking and unlocking tool on windows and Mac OS X for iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). But like Pwnage tool for Mac, redsn0w also has a few exceptions:
- redsn0w 0.7 shall not be used, if you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service. You shall wait until ultrasn0w is released.
- redsn0w 0.7 will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS.
But iPod Touch 2G users can use Redsn0w to jailbreak and unlock their devices and if you own an original iPhone 2G, Redsn0w will unlock it too. Thus redsn0w be a tool on windows and Mac for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch, iPod touch 2G and the iPhone 3G.
