Tutorial – Install Cydia applications in 4.2.1 GM without Cydia with RedSn0w 0.9.6b3

After the release of RedSn0w 0.9.3b3 allowing you to install applications without Cydia, here is a tutorial explaining how to do it.

Prerequisites:

  • A device in 4.2.1 GM jailbroken with RedSn0w 0.9.6b3
  • The 4.2.1 GM firmware on your desktop

Step 1

Launch RedSn0w 0.9.6b3

2nd step

Click on the button [browse] and select the 4.2.1 GM firmware on your desktop.

Once RedSn0w has finished working, click on the button [Next]

Stage 3

You will find yourself in this menu:

Check, as shown on the screenshot, the “install custom bundle” box (and the others if you wish).

Before clicking on the button [Next], you need to download the SSH Bundle, which will allow you to connect using SSH.

Then click on [Next]

Step 4

RedSn0w should ask you to get the BUNDLE in .gz format.

Select the one downloaded in the previous step:

Once RedSn0w has identified the bundle, click on [next].

Step 5

RedSn0w will ask you to switch to DFU.

You will be guided with a counter integrated into the software 😉

Once in DFU, RedSn0w will work again. Once the “Done” label has appeared, click on [Finish!] and wait for your device to reboot.

Once rebooted, you can connect to SSH, and therefore install DEB without Cydia 😉

To install a DEB, you can do it manually or with iPhInstaller
