redsn0w stuck on uploading first stage iphone 5.0.1

So I broke my iphone 4 the other night and was unable to get it to boot backup again so I had to restore it back to factory default with firmware 5.0.1. I downloaded redsn0w 0.9.10b5c and ran the application. I had my iPhone in DFU mode but I was getting stuck at this screen.

I rebooted my PC (Windows 7 x64) and I still couldn't get past this screen. Redsn0w is not able to jailbreak your iPhone/iPod if you the drivers for the iPhone DFU mode are not installed. So I went to my device manager and I saw my problem.

If you have iTunes installed on your computer, the drivers for Apple Mobile Device (DFU Mode) should already be on your computer. Right click the device above and select Update Driver Software. 

Try to Search Automatically first, if you get this screen:
Choose to browse my computer for the driver software. Navigate to this path

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers

Windows should now find the drivers for the device and hopefully you should see this screen.

Try running redsn0w again to jailbreak your iPhone. Good luck!


  1. hello i have this problem but I have done everything like in tutorial but're still the same, could help?

  2. Thank you very much! It worked like a charm.

  3. i cant find part 2

  4. in device managment I don't get where it says "other devices"

    1. If you're using XP you would have to go to Universal Serial Bus controllers. Then, you need to right click on Apple Mobile Device USB Driver. :)

    2. Although, that didn't work for me... :(

  5. I can't redsnow :(( uploading first stage

  6. does your phone have to be in DFU mode to be able to do part 2

  7. IPOD 4 gets stuck at uploading first stage. I got the right firmware and have jail broken many phones and ipods. Anyone know anything else to try. I've done everything I can think of

  8. STUCK AT UPLOADING FIRST STAGE ISSUE FIXED!! Make sure you if ur jail breaking 6.1.3 you download the 6.0 firmware. NOT 6.0.1 or 6.1..
    AFTER JAIL BREAK, go to ETRAS>select IPSW and click the 6.0 firmware again. THEN do JUST BOOT. No matter what device your using this will work. here is the site for the firmware.

  9. I have never commented on a block thingy but THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH IS HAVE TRIED SO HARD TO DO THIS *Luv u no homo*

  10. Hi there!!
