Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC12 Fixes Boot Animations Issues

iPhone Dev Team has released a minor update of Redsnow. Redsnow 0.9.6 RC 12 fixes the issues related to boot animations. If you have already jailbroken your device with any previous version of Redsn0w but you are  facing problem in setting animated boots, you can simply re-run Redsn0w release candidate 12 on it.

Here is the official update from iPhone Dev Team:

redsnow_0.9.6 RC 12

Those running redsn0w may have noticed we enabled too many Settings options in some versions of the jailbreak (for instance, what you want your side switch to do, even if you have no side switch because you’re not using an iPad).   Release rc10 rc12 of redsn0w corrects that (you can just run it over your existing jailbreak…be sure to de-select Cydia to avoid package conflicts).

Along the way, we’ve also added the option to enable boot animations…these animations can be installed via Cydia, but be sure to select which animation to use via the Settings->Bootlogo setting after you’ve downloaded an animation (and again, you can just run rc10 rc12 over your existing jailbreak…be sure to de-select Cydia to avoid package conflicts).

(The boot animation we tested against was “Android Boot Logo”.  It correctly installs all the dependencies needed to run the animation at each boot).

    I tried to do it, and I have a message saying that the IPhone cannot be restored and an error 1601 occurred. I am using Vista. I tried also with admin mode and XP compatibility with the same result.

    1. If you are using Custom iOS firmware, and I guess you are using, then you’ll have to put your device into Pwned DFU mode using Redsn0w to restore.
