    Hi, i came across a problem with redsn0w, i've just jailbroken my ipad to IOS5 (it was previously jb to ios 4.3.4) when i was installing cydia redsn0w simply crashed before (fortunately) causing any damage, so i tried again and fortunately it worked, then of course i had to reboot but when i tried that it crashed again(redsn0w crashed) twice then at the third time it worked, i installed a cydia tweak that required reboot and redsn0w crashed again but at the 3rd time again redsn0w rebooted it succesfully, i was wondering why it did that and if there was a way to prevent it. thanks.

    That is not the same problem. You are running a TETHERED jailbreak. This means you must use redsn0w to boot your device EVERY TIME it restarts.

    Look at our tutorial here, where you should skip to Step 11 - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lbreak-ipad1-ios5-tethered-using-redsn0w.html

    Remember, you must do it EVERY TIME the iPad is restarted.

    I'm using windows xp, i've never had this problem when i was jailbroken on 4.3.4 nor on 4.3.5 even though i went back to .4 since i lomed it more^^ i'll try today to run redsnow in the mac and see if that solves the problem, i'll write the results, thanks for help and sorry if i couldn't reply sooner but i was in school

    Edti:Ok, i found out that it works on a mac, guess i'll have to stick to it unless (just thinking out loud here) redsn0w will be updated or something like that.

    Redsnow isn't the problem.

    You aren't booting tethered. Open redsnow, click "extras" and click "just boot". Then follow all the instructions.
    You have to do that any time you power off or your battery dies.
