Easy ways To Use Redsn0w As iREB Alternative in Mac OS X To Put iPhone in Pwned DFU Mode

March 30, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Well, in order to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using custom IPSW, you have to use iREB to pwn your iBoot so that it may accept the custom IPSWs without throwing any restore error. Actually, restoring custom IPSW without iREB results in 1600, 1601, 1602, 1603 or 1604 error. Hence, in order to bypass these errors on Windows, the best possible solution is to use iREB but unfortunately, iREB isn’t available for Mac OS X. Here’s presenting you the step by step guidelines posted on how to use Redsn0w as an iREB alternative in Mac to put your iOS device in pwned DFU mode.

How To Use Redsn0w As iREB Alternative in Mac OS X To Put iPhone in Pwned DFU Mode

NOTE : Well, first I have used this method to put my iPhone 4 in pwned DFU mode to restore iOS 4.3 custom IPSW created with PwnageTool bundles and then I used it again to downgrade my iPhone 4 firmware from iOS 4.3 to iOS 4.2.1. And, the most interesting point is that in either case I didn’t even got a single 16xx error. This guide is applicable to iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPod Touch 4G/3G/2G & iPad.

NOTE : You can get all the necessary download links at the end of the article.

Step – 1 : First, download Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 for Mac.

Step – 2 : After that, download stock iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Step – 3 : Now, launch the Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 and click on “Browse” button.

Step – 4 : After that, select stock iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for your iOS device and click on “Open” button.

Step – 5 : Next, wait while Redsn0w verify your firmware file.

Step – 6 : At the time when Redsn0w echoes “IPSW successfully identified” message, then, click on the “Next” button.

Step – 7 : Now, Redsn0w will patch the kernel of provided IPSW.

Step – 8 : Once Redsn0w shows you the jailbreak options as shown in the screenshot below, select “Just enter pwned DFU mode right now” and click on the “Next” button.

Step – 9 : Next, plug your iOS device to your Mac and turn it OFF completely by pressing the “Power” button.

Step – 10 : After that, put your iOS device in DFU mode using the following instructions;

  • First hold down the “Power” button for 3 seconds.
  • Then, without releasing he “power” button, also hold down the “Home” button for 10 seconds.
  • Now, without releasing the “Home” button, release the “Power” button but keep holding the “Home” button for 15 seconds until Redsn0w detects your iOS device in DFU mode.

Step – 11 : Now, Redsn0w will patch the iBoot of your iOS device using Geohot’s limera1n exploit.

Step – 12 : Now, your iOS device is in pwned DFU mode and is ready to accept any custom IPSW file without throwing 16xx, 29 or 21 error.
