I have the latest Itunes and Quicktime installed, but when I load redsn0w in administrator mode I get the following popup.

Certain operations like the A5 jailbreak are disabled due to incomplete iTunes libraries. Please be sure the latest iTunes is installed. Couldn't load Mobiledevice.dll.

Any suggestions?

I just tested with a older version win_0.9.10b3 and it loads just fine.

It seems like it is not detecting the phone via usb... itunes detects that its in recovery mode, but redsn0w does not.

If anyone is still having trouble with this do the following it worked for me.

  1. Download iTunesMobileDevice.dll From: http://iphone.dashhacks.com/downloads/itunesmobiledevicedllzip (I do not know if i can post a link or not.)

  2. If not google iTunesMobileDevice.dll and download it.

  3. Extract it into desktop

  4. Rename it by right clicking it and left clicking rename Rename it MobileDevice.dll

  5. Place the file after renaming it into the folder that need's it. (In my case I needed it in the Redsn0w folder in order to use it.)

Let me know if this helped you! If it did not help or you cannot figure something I did out I'll help you, or I will look for a solution. I am really good with computers so I can figure almost anything out.

Why what is it doing? Still getting the error message?

(22 Mar '12, 00:36) TKTakaishi TKTakaishi's gravatar image

no the message is gone but when i try to put my ipod into dfu mode redsnow doesn't recognize it im pretty sure i did it right

(22 Mar '12, 00:38) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

I had the same problem. What I did was close redsn0w and open it up again and ether click jailbreak to jailbreak it Or Click extras and click just boot to just boot.

Just ignore the steps to put it into DFU MODE. You might have to redo DFU MODE if it does not recognize it in DFU MODE. To redo DFU MODE hold down lock and home then release after apple icon displays.

THEN REDO WHAT I SAID IN THE BEGAINING.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE MORE PROBLEMS. LIKE IF ITUNES DOES NOT RECONIZE UR IPOD IN DFU MODE OR COMPUTER DOES NOT RECONIZE UR IPOD AT ALL.

I feel like i am repeating myself lol because I went through the samething today actually. Or yesterday I guess now.

I do not remimber exactly how I did this.

Follow these steps. BY THE WAY I AM ON WINDOWS 7 IF YOUR ON WINDOWS XP IT MIGHT BE DIFFERENT

GO TO

  1. START MENU

  2. CONTROL PANEL

  3. HARDWARE AND SOUND

  4. DEVICES AND PRINTERS

HERE IS WHERE THE PROBLEM WAS FOR ME MY SCREEN SHOWS 3 CATEGORIES

DEVICES

PRINTERS AND FAXES

UNSPECIFIED

UNDER UNSPECIFIED YOU SHOULD SEE APPLE iPOD

  1. RIGHT CLICK IT

  2. LEFT CLICK PROPERTIES

  3. GO UNDER HARDWARE

  4. CLICK ON PROPERTIES

  5. GO UNDER DRIVER

  6. CLICK UPDATE DRIVER

NOW THERE WILL BE TWO OPTIONS

(SEARCH AUTOMATICALLY FOR UPDATED DRIVER)

(BROWSE MY COMPUTER FOR DRIVER SOFTWARE)

  1. CLICK THE FIRST ONE

THERE YOU GO I HOPE.

LET ME KNOW IF THERE IS MORE YOU NEED

ok. i got my pc(win7) to recognize my ipod, but redsnow is still not recognizing it in dfu mode, (sigh) :( thank you so far though, i appreciate it.

(22 Mar '12, 03:52) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

Did u completely exit out of redsn0w and start redsn0w backup after putting it into DFU MODE?

(22 Mar '12, 04:02) TKTakaishi TKTakaishi's gravatar image

OOH, that's what you meant....i'll give it a try

(22 Mar '12, 13:40) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

well, it did recognize my ipod, but it's stuck at uploading first stage... :(

(22 Mar '12, 13:44) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

Take it out of DFU MODE and try it again because my iPod froze one time at first stage. Then retry it.

(22 Mar '12, 14:24) TKTakaishi TKTakaishi's gravatar image

i tryed like 10 times, in compatibility mode too. but it's still stuck everytime at the end of uploading first stage. D:

(23 Mar '12, 01:44) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

Well I posted here to help and another person replyed saying I need help. So I can't help that person. What type of form is this when ur shot down because you help someone that needs help. He was the only one that commented on my comment I didn't see anyone else.. So your going to give me crap for it ok be that way I'll take my solutions and help else where and you can shove this form up your ass.

Anyone that needs help look me up on YouTube: xXxTKTakaishiXxX. Since I am going to get shot down for helping people. Not my fault that the other person didnt say that it was helpful or not.

It's not bad to help other people here! It's just customary here to encourage additional question-askers in the same thread to start a different question so that they can be helped separately from the original question. :) This helps keep questions and answers organized and easier to read.

@theiphoneguy, @britta i'm kinda new here so i didn't really know. Thanks for the reminder @TKTakaishi thanks for your help, at least i came up to this point which is much better than what i got two days ago, thanks. Maybe i'll start a new thread...

(23 Mar '12, 11:43) andrew9606 andrew9606's gravatar image

@tktakaishi i wasnt saying it was good or bad, was more in case you didnt know it was a different person :p if i was going to "shoot you down for helping" i would have edited or removed your answers. i did not and merely pointed out the person was a different person. simmer down, nothing for you to get all uppity and defensive about and tell us to shove it up our ass. THAT kind of commenting might get you "shot down"

(23 Mar '12, 14:19) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image

Download iTunesMobileDevice.dll from a site on google.

Extract it into desktop

Rename it by right clicking it and left clicking rename Rename it MobileDevice.dll

Place the file after renaming it into the folder that need's it. (In my case I needed it in the Redsn0w folder in order to use it.)

Let me know if this helped you! If it did not help or you cannot figure something I did out I'll help you, or I will look for a solution. I am really good with computers so I can figure almost anything out.

Try to remove iTunes and Apple Mobile Device and then reinstall iTunes.

It is also possible that the latest iTunes 10.6 isn't compatible with redsn0w (is it 10.6 that you have?), in such case remove all Apple packages that came with iTunes (there are 5 of them) and then reinstall 10.5.3 and try again.

Thanks for the reply, but every JB 5.1 guide I've ready starts with the same line...

"Download iTunes 10.6"

I would assume thousands of people would be having the same issue... not just me, and the few others I've found via google.

(09 Mar '12, 10:23) p2kart p2kart's gravatar image

Spoke too soon, I just tried it on another computer that was not the lastest 10.6 and it worked just fine... Thanks

(09 Mar '12, 11:19) p2kart p2kart's gravatar image
