    Simple Fully Automated redsn0w lite booter V3

    Now with window focus fix
    Two Versions available...
    1. A version with No Unplug/Replug.
    2. Original version.
    3. Version for a dude with USB issues (14 sec reboot).
    4. GoofUSB a utility for checking the state of your ipod. It does NOT use, link to or need USBLIB and its only 10k. If you think your ipod isnt there this will check for you.



    The original goofball program for re-loading redsn0w lite on your ipod after the Jailbreak is here and will take care of step 13 from the "Windows Redsn0w Tutorial" sticky for you from now on.
    It was the 2nd booter program created for this forum and the first to totally automate the process. Attached in the zip file is a simple small executable "goofball.exe".
    Its no frills, there's no gui (do you really need a gui anyway ?), and it runs by itself !
    It fully automates re-booting with redsn0w lite. It sends all the keypresses for you !
    There is nothing to type, no hex codes or any stuff like that.
    Its extremelly lightweight, only 9 Kbytes ! and because it was coded in pure c/c++ there are no dependencies on things like .NET or side by side assemblies so you simply wont get those errors.

    There is one pre-requisite though...
    You have to have followed everything in the "Windows Redsn0w Tutorial" sticky.
    If you have then skip all 4 steps below and just put "goofball.exe" from the attached zip archive into the same directory as the files in step 2 below.
    If you havent then go to the "Windows Redsn0w Tutorial" sticky, follow those instructions then come back here.

    1. You must have "iRecovery.exe" in the same directory as "goofball.exe".
    2. Your files must be named iBSS211.dfu, iBSS221.dfu & iBoot221.img3
    3. All of the above files need to be in the same directory.
    4. You must have already Jailbroken your ipod once.

    Now anytime you need to re-apply redsn0w lite (ie:reboot the ipod) simply run "goofball.exe" and thats it. Dont do anything. Just wait for it to finish (a matter of seconds).
    It will close by itself. Then and only then your ipod should be rebooting.

    I use this on my ipt2g and it works and is very simple so feel free to use it
    yourself. Let me know if you need any help.

    Thanks to Dev Team for "redsn0w lite" & Chronic Dev Team for "iRecovery".
    What i have done is just piggy backing off their work. They are the heroes in all this ipt2g JB stuff.
    I hope you wont need this tool for long because we all hope Dev Team or Chronic will come out with an untethered solution soon.

    Source code to goofball.exe is available below. No rules. Take it, pull it apart, take credit for it i dont care, cause theres really nothing to it. It's dirty, mean and fricken lean, but it works.

    GUI and all that.

    what about disconnecting the ipod and re-plugging it back in? is that also automated or will it tell you to?

    It will tell you first to put it into DFU mode.
    Then later on it will tell you unplug and plug back in.
    Thats all there is to do.

    i tested it. it'll tell you to disconnect and reconnect. but it does enter all of the commands for you rather than manually. so far this is the most automated way of rebooting i have seen. well done!

    only thing, the breaks in between entering the commands are a little slow. it would be even more convenient if there was a speed option...just an opinion.

    oh and one other thing, keep the console window focused or it will type in whatever app is focused.
