Redsn0w for Linux
Many jailbreaking tools only support for Windows and Mac OSs. But you can use Redsn0w to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPods with Linux OS. But latest version of redsn0w does not support for Linux yet. Therefore we don't recommend to jailbreak new Apple idevcie models (just like iPhone4, 4S, iPad1,2) and iOS firware versions (5.0.0 , 5.0.1) using Linux OS
Download Redsn0w 0.8 version
If you are using another operating system with linux (windows or Mac) , we recommend you to download redsn0w for that operating system.
Otherwise you can install wine before start jailbreak with Linux. Wine is the simple solution to run Windows applications on Linux or solaris
Install wine from following website
Then install Redsn0w for Windows
Now youcan jailbreak your device with the most compatible Redsn0w version
