Dev Team Updates Redsn0w to Fix Issue Affecting OS X Users

Jailbreak iPod Touch On iOS 4.2.1 Redsn0w

While we eagerly wait for the jailbreak community to release an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod touch 4 and iPod touch 3 and a jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3, the iPhone Dev team has quietly updated Redsn0w to fix an issue for those running OS X 10.5.x or earlier.

The OS X version of Redsn0w has now been bumped up to 0.9.10b6b. Dev team hasn’t provided any details about the issue that was affecting users running OS X 10.5.x or earlier. They’ve just updated their blog with this brief note:

 The OS X version of redsn0w has been updated to fix an issue for those running OS X 10.5.x or earlier.

Redsn0w 0.9.10b6/0.9.10b6b can only perform a tethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (expect iPhone 3GS with old bootrom), iPad 1 and 3rd-generation iPod touch, which means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot. So if you’ve jailbroken your iOS device running on iOS 5.0.1, you are better off avoiding the iOS 5.1 software update, which doesn’t include any major feature.

However, if you’ve accidentally updated your iOS device to iOS 5.1 then you can use Redsn0w 0.9.10b6. You can download Redsn0w 0.9.10b6b using this link for Mac and Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 using this link for Windows.

iPhone Dev team hasn’t provided any update on the jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 running iOS 5.1.

      STFU no one is pushing anyone, get off your high horse and put away your shinning armor. Everyone is just saying they are waiting, if the DEVs want their butt wiped they will be sure to call upon you.

    How come nobody mentions that if you have 3GS with new bootrom you can not unlock your phone.
    You will get “NO SERVICE ”
    Flashbacks to GPS issue that was never resolved on 4.1 ?
