Redsn0w Freezes at Uploading RamDisk in Windows Vista/7 [How-To Fix]

Couple of weeks ago, we shared a tutorial to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPod Touch 4G/3G/2G & iPad using Redsn0w 0.9.6 but many users reported that they are still unable to jailbreak their iDevice as Redsn0w freezes and then crashes at 'Uploading ramdisk' step during the jailbreak process. I have found an easy workaround for this problem which worked for many users and i hope this will work for you as well if you are facing the similar issue.

This fix should for work for the following Redsn0w errors:

-Redsn0w freezes at 'Uploading ramdisk' step
-'Redsn0w.exe has stopped working' error in Windows 7 or Vista
-Redsn0w crashes when iPhone screen displays 'Downloading Jailbreak Data'

Solution:
In order to solve this issue, you need to run Redsn0w as an administrator in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode and set the Redsn0w process affinity to CPU 1 through 'Task Manager'. To do so, follow the steps below:

1. Right-click on Redsn0w.exe and choose 'Properties' from the context-menu.


2. Switch to 'Compatibility' tab and choose 'Windows XP (Service Pack 2)' as the compatibility option. Click OK button to close the 'Properties' window.


3. Again right-click on Redsn0w.exe and choose 'Run as administrator' from the context-menu.



4. Launch 'Task Manager' by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete and switch to 'Processes' tab.
Right-click on 'redsn0w.exe' and choose 'Set Affinity...' as sown in the screenshot below:



5. Set 'Process Affinity' to CPU 1 only.



6. Click OK to close the window and proceed to the on-screen jailbreak instructions. Hopefully, Redsn0w will not freeze on 'Uploading ramdisk' step now.

Okay................Cool


BUT WHAT DO I DO IF "SET AFFINITY" IS NOT THERE>

I have all other options in the image above.....................except for "Set Affinity"

Go f-ing figure right. I cant even use the redsn0w I have at all. It freezes the second you click on "jailbreak" or "just boot tethered"

Nothing. Not even one of the loading bars will pop up.

So I find this guide and apparently the one thing I could use to make this work is not even there.
yeah......................in task manger in processes tab. Right click on redsn0w.exe and rite between "Set Priorities" and "Properties" is nothing

Just "set Priorities" and "Properties" is there.......No "Set Affinity" option between the 2 like in the picture!

How gay is that!?

Anyone know why, or is able to help me?
