Jailbreak 3.1.3 for iPod Touch 1G/2G, iPhone 2G/3G – redsn0w 0.9.4

Apple earlier today has released the 3.1.3 update for all iPhone’s and iPod Touch’s. This update only fixes a few minor problems. If you’re jailbroken, you shouldn’t worry about this update… At all. If you’re unlocked, stay away from this update altogether.

The iPhone Dev team has been receiving reports of people who have successfully jailbroken 3.1.3 on their device by using redsn0w, and pointing it to the 3.1.2 firmware IPSW file. This has been reported working on the following devices:

  • iPod Touch 1G
  • iPod Touch 2G (Non-MC)
  • iPhone 2G
  • iPhone 3G

So, if you have an iPod Touch 2G (MC), iPod Touch 3G, or an iPhone 3GS, then you cannot jailbreak just yet.

If you’re on an iPhone 3G and are using a soft-unlock for your device, stay away from this! Yes, you can jailbreak your device running 3.1.3, but you will lose your unlock, possibly forever.

To make the process simple for the people who want to update, you can download the Dev Team’s just released version of redsn0w, which is version 0.9.4. WINDOWS |  MAC

You need to make sure you have the 3.1.2 firmware IPSW file downloaded. You can find them here.

You also need to make sure that your device is already on 3.1.3, either by updating to it in iTunes, or restoring to it in iTunes. If you’re already jailbroken, and you do an update, nothing will be lost. All of your jailbroken modifications and applications should still be there, but they may not function at all.

The rest of the jailbreaking process is simple. Run your copy of redsn0w 0.9.4, point the program to the 3.1.2 firmware you just downloaded (or already had), and follow the rest of the prompts to jailbreak your device.  If you’ve downloaded the 3.1.3 firmware, redsn0w will simply say that it is “unable to recognize specified IPSW”.

Congrats! Your iPhone or iPod Touch running 3.1.3 should now be jailbroken.

    I would gladly have stayed on 3.1.2, but I dropped my phone and the refurbished unit I got already had 3.1.3 installed. There are some Cydia apps I can live without.
    Thanks for this info!

    IF YOU GUYS HACKED YOUR IPOD TOUCH WRONG WITH SPIRITS ALTOUGH IT GAVE YOU GUYS CYDIA AND IF YOU ERASE ALL CONTENT AND SETTING AND IF IT SAYS IT WILL TAKE ONE HOUR TO COMPLETE AND IF IT SHOWS THE APPLE SIGN, BELOW IT WILL APPEAR A CIRCLE OR SOMETHING TO LOAD THE IPOD, IF IT REACHES THE 5TH BAR IT WILL FREZZE.
    IF I WHERE YOU I WOULD CONNECT THE IPOD TO THE COMPUTER AND LET IT CHARGE EVEN IF IT IS CHARGE DO IT STILL CUZ WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WAS THAT I WAS IN BUGER KING AND I LET THE IPOD TO ITS THING BUT THEN IT FROZZE AND THE BATTARY RAN OUT SO WHEN HOOKED IT UP ON THE COMPUTER THE IPOD SHOWED THE BATTARY SIGN SO I LET IT CHARGE FOR 30 MIN, THE NEXT THING THAT HAPPENED WAS THAT IT DID NOT CHARGE. THE ONLY THING YOU GUYS NEED TO DO IS WELL IF IT SHOWS THE APPLE SIGN PRESS SLEEP AND THE HOME BUTTON AND THEN IT WOULD TELL YOU TO CONNECT TO ITUNES AND YOU GUYS NEED TO RESTORED THE IPOD, WHEN IT IS RESTORED THE IPOD SHOULD WORK AGAIN
