Redsn0w Adds Preserve Baseband With Custom Firmware Feature! An End To PwnageTool


by casey on October 12, 2011

Ever thought there are too many jailbreaking tools ??? It is also very complicated to tell new users whats the difference between Redsn0w, PwnageTool, GreenPois0n and Sn0wbreeze. iPhone Dev Team has made an interesting announcement. They are putting together two of their tools together in one.

Redsn0w is now capable of providing the key feature of PwnageTool that is preserving the baseband and cooking a custom IPSW.

Difference Between Redsn0w and PwnageTool:

Both PwnageTool and Redsn0w are capable of jailbreaking iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with a little difference. Redsn0w is recommended for those who don’t need to worry about whether or not their baseband gets updated or not. For example, we have a factory unlocked iPhone device, so we never worry about the baseband update because its a factory unlocked device.

On the other hand, Pwnage Tool is used by those people who need to preserve their baseband while the tool jailbreaks your device. The tool jailbreaks the device but stops the baseband from updating.

Why Preserving Baseband is Important:

You must be wondering about why preserving the baseband is important. Its related to unlocking. For example, your iPhone 4 device has 01.59.00 baseband and it gets updated during the jailbreak process to any of the baseband from these 02.10.04 / 03.10.01 / 04.10.01, it means Ultrasn0w, the software based unlock solution will not work on it any more resulting in a locked iPhone device. So in order to avoid this situation, you need to preserve your baseband and for this you need PwnageTool.

Remember Pwnagetool is a Mac based jailbreaking solution. Sn0wbreeze is used by Windows users for the same purpose. While Redsn0w is made available for both Windows and Mac users.

Redsn0w to Preserve Baseband:

As we told you, its still confusing for new users which is now made clear with a Redsn0w update. MuscleNerd from iPhone Dev Team has announced an updated Redsn0w that will provide Pwnagetool’s preserving baseband functionality inside Redsn0w as you can see in the image above.
