Thank You for your clear explanation “How to install ….”
I guess I better buy some new glasses, I never saw the “install” logo in the top right corner.

I hope you’re on iOS 4.1 or lower than that. And you must see limera1n icon on the screen if you jailbreak with this method. Reboot if you’re not able to see.

Hi there

I need to know how to install redsnow and where it will be installed in my iphone or in my computer, I have downloaded it.

And moreover after installing redsnow what will the other step. Will it be the same like you have mentioned above or it’s different to finally install Cyndia.

Plus in case if anything went wrong in all this process. What will happened, can it be reinstated in old shape. And if yes what will the procedure.
