    Hi -

    1. Does anyone know if i can bypass the "activating" process when using redsn0w?

    2. Is there any other tools to than Redsn0w and itunes, that can restore/update an iphone?

    Do you mean having to 'Boot tethered' every time you restart?

    Or are you literally stuck at the activating screen?

    GoldMan, are you trying to activate the phone or just trying to jailbreak? Also, what operating system is the computer running that you are hooking your phone to?

    It happens when i try to jailbreak with 4.1 or 4.2.1.

    It goes all the way like "installing bundles" but gets stuck at "activating"

    Tried both win 7 and xp

    Here's what I've learned. If you are running Windows 7, you need to run redsn0w in Windows XP compatible mode. I honestly can't tell you how to do that since I use XP. Also, there is a Windows version of redsn0w. Also, I think that the current redsn0w only jailbreaks 4.2.1. Once RS does it's first "jailbreak", you have to jailbreak again right after that. I'm sure you have read instructions on the steps. Don't forget that when jailbreaking with RS, it does take a few minutes for the iDevice to finish receiving the files. If you have more questions, we're here to help.
