    There has been a lot of discussion recently about QuickFreedom vs. redsn0w v.3. This thread is to explain the differences and help you decide which one to use.

    QuickFreedom/redTool/Untetherizer
    This is an unofficial GUI similar to PwnageTool, made by dancool999. This is an unofficial tool that was made shortly after 24kpwn was released. This was not made by a member of the iPhone Dev-Team/Chronic Dev-Team, so it is not supported by the actual developers. Alternatives to it include redTool (made by Chris Stroud for Windows) and Untetherizer (made by Jaikob for Mac).

    Pros:
    * Is an easy GUI, does not run from Terminal.
    * More "out-of-beta" then redsn0w; been around longer.

    Cons:
    * Requires a full restore from iTunes, wipes all data.
    * Unofficial tool, not supported on team blogs.
    * Somewhat slower.

    redsn0w
    This is the official GUI released recently by the iPhone Dev-Team, made by planetbeing. It is more like QuickPwn, and implements LogoMe, which many users like. Not to be confused by redsn0w exploit, which was the tethered jb exploit (also known as arm7_go)

    Pros:
    * Official tool, supported everywhere.
    * Enables LogoMe, cannot be found for ipt2g anywhere else besides version 0.3.
    * QuickPwn style, fast, easy, no restore required.

    Cons:
    * Ran from the command prompt; scrolls hack-ish Terminal text.
    * Still beta, also caused confusion when using redsn0w less than .3 and LogoMe.

    So, overall, redsn0w seems like the best way to go for a beginner, and if you have any problems, be sure to ask.

    Really? In what forum? Almost all people reporting boot problems here are those who tried changing their boot logo with LogoMe on an iPod which was not jailbroken with redsnow 0.3.

    There was some problem with I believe redsnow 0.1 that it did not make enough room on the root partition. This is fixed by now.

    Still not right. The problems were reported by people who did use LogoMe, but did NOT use redsnow 0.3. Redsnow 0.3 does a patch to the DeviceTree so LogoMe can do its magic. If this patch is missing, you end up in a world of pain.
