The iPhone Dev-Team has released Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 to help you boot your tethered jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch quickly, bypassing some of the screen that you will normally see when using Redsn0w for iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak.

We’ve updated redsn0w to include “one-click” support for those of you running the tethered 4.2.1 jailbreak.  Using command-line arguments, you can now bypass the screens you’d normally see as you use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered for now”.

Note:

  • Make sure you have the latest iTunes 10.1.1 installed.
  • Windows 7 and Vista users should use Redsn0w in “XP Compatibility Mode”.
  • All the required download links are given at the end of the post.

Here’s how you can boot your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with one-click:

On Windows:

Step 1: Download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 for Windows and the required iOS 4.2.1 firmware file. Place them in one single folder on the Desktop.

Step 3: Enter the following command (modify the name of the folder, and IPSW file as necessary):

For the older devices like the iPod touch 2G and iPhone 3GS (old bootrom):

Step 4: Redsn0w will now start, follow the onscreen instructions for entering DFU mode to boot your device in a tethered jailbroken state.
