How to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G with redsn0w 0.9.6 beta 1 ( MAC )

For those who like redsn0w more than the PwnageTool, here comes a guide to fix all of your jailbreaking problems. The following lines will show you how to jailbreak the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G, with iOS 4.1, using redsn0w 0.9.6 beta. This guide is only available for MAC users, as the Windows version needs a little more work done. It seems PC folks will have to wait a little more.

For those who want to unlock their devices, and use any SIM cards afterward, do not use this guide. Redsn0w requires you to update the iOS and thus, upgrades the baseband, making an unlocking procedure using ultrasn0w impossible. Also, it will not hacktivate your phone. If you want all that, please follow the PwnageTool guide.

Another important thing to note: if you have an “MC” model of the iPod Touch 2G, your jailbreak will be tethered. That means you will have to do all of these, each time you restart your device. Kind of nasty I know, but it’s better than nothing at the moment. This guide can only be done on Mac OS X x86 ( for now ).
