    I jailbroke my iOS 5 iPod touch 4th gen with redsn0w 0.9.9b7. The Cydia icon is white and crashes at launch. So I tried to "just boot", but tells me it failed to enter DFU mode even though the iPod is in DFU mode. :confused:

    Kind of what happens to me, it says "exploit failed" after it starts to boot tethered for the first time after the initial jailbreak. I think I have the same version of redn0w, but it may have been .9.9b6.

    Im trying to jailbreak my iphone 4 with ios5 using redsnow and i managed to do all the steps until the "just reboot tethered" because the software crashes and the phone ends up crashing as well and i have to press power+home button to bring it back. I already tried to open the software with compatibility mode and the problem continues (i use W7)
    This is actually my first attempt to jailbreak since its my first iphone and i have it for 3 days now, so im still a bit lost in some parts =/

    I never did get the newer versions of Redsn0w to boot my phone (I didn't try 0.9.9b7). I reverted back to the old 0.9.8b7.

    0.9.9b6 didn't work either, I guess I'll try 0.9.8b7.

    0.9.9b7 worked, I guess I put it in DFU mode incorrectly or something. :p
