Title: Install Whited00r without getting any troubles.
Post by: CHICK3N on July 12, 2011, 05:10:51 PM
How to install Whited00r without getting any problems and what to do when it's done.

1) Make sure you have the original 3.1.3 firmware on your iDevice.
2) Download the stock 3.1.2 firmware (3.1.2, why? Because you need it later)
3) Download the latest Whited00r for your iDevice. (currently v4.4.1)
4) Download Redsn0w 0.9.4.

First, when you downloaded all te files, open Redsn0w 0.9.4. Click on "browse" and select the 3.1.2 firmware. Follow the steps in Redsn0w and let it jailbreak your iDevice. But, when the screen of your iDevice turns white, quickly unplug your iDevice and close Redsn0w.

Open iTunes. iTunes should come with a pop-up that says that your iDevice is currently in "Save Mode" or "DFU Mode".
If you are on a Windows PC use SHIFT + [CLICK] Restore.
If you are on a Mac use Alt/Option + [CLICK] Restore.
Select the Whited00r firmware ipsw.
iTunes is now installing Whited00r!

When iTunes is done with restoring, select  "setup as a new iDevice".
If you check the other box it will put a backup you've made some other time on your iDevice. But this could contains errors. So I recommend you to do a clean install, so your iDevice will run smooth and fast.

When this is done, swipe to the second page on your iDevice. There's an app called "MobileTerminal". Open it and then follow these steps.

1) Type "su" [ENTER].
2) Type "alpine" [ENTER]
You are now 'inside' your iDevice.
3) Type now "./Configurator". Don't forget the UPPERCASE.
It should launch a script.
4) Follow the script to speed up your iDevice!

When this is done, it will automatically reboot.

Now your done!

Enjoy your fully featured Whited00r firmware!

(Links to the firmwares and Redsn0w will I post later. I'm now on my iPad).

So you perform a restore offline, so you don't get trouble with apples verification.

Cool  8)

I get to the part where I have the white screen on my ipod touch. I quickly unplug it, close redsn0w, plug it back in, and open iTunes. iTunes then tells me that my device is in recovery mode. My only option is to say OK. From there I hold shift and click on restore. I select the Whited00r firmware and iTunes attempts to begin to configure but every time it gets an error code. And they vary. Sometimes it takes 30 seconds for it to get an error or 5 minutes.

Are you expected to have the official 3.1.3 firmware already installed on the device? I don't. I have the latest iOs 4 version. IF I do need to have 3.1.3 already installed before I attempt these steps, how do I go about doing that?

EDIT: I have now been able to successfully install the Whited00r firmware. Here is what I did.

I downloaded sn0wbreeze-v2.2.1
I downloaded the official firmware that matched my current (iOS 4.2.1)
I ran sn0wbreeze which promptly took the official 4.2.1 firmware and created a custom firmware.
When prompted to select that firmware and restore my iPod using it, I instead selected Whited00r.
iTunes was then able to successfully restore my iPod touch 2g with Whited00r without any error messages.
I was then able to follow the above instructions within the Mobile Terminal and everything seems to have work out perfectly.

I would reccommend not to try to install Whited00r (which is 3.1.3 based) on a 3G, wait for Red00r(4.2-based) to come outů
