Hey people, I just updated my iPhone 3GS to 5.1 and I was trying to jailbreak it but after I downloaded redsn0w's latest firmware and run it, I get a message stating "certain operations (like A5 jailbreak)are disabled due to incomplete iTunes libraries. Please be sure the latest version of iTunes is installed. Couldn't load mobiledevice.dll (error 127)" my itunes is updated to the latest update and I have tried restarting my computer after manually re-installing it but I still get the same message. Because of this, I can't go into DFU mode because redsn0w just ignores my device.

In redsn0w, try without manually selecting a IPSW. Use the Auto-Detect Method. But if you are already using the auto-detect method, then go to "Extras" and select your IPSW and try again.

Try setting up redsn0w using these instructions: http://www.jailbreakqa.com/ios5 - they help solve a lot of redsn0w issues.

is there a solution to the error message I get every time I open redsn0w? "certain operations (like A5 jailbreak)are disabled due to incomplete iTunes libraries. Please be sure the latest version of iTunes is installed. Couldn't load mobiledevice.dll (error 127)"

I have the same exact issue only with the iPhone 4 running 5.1. I have re-installed iTunes and redsn0w, but the device is not recognized (error 127), etc...
