Dev Team Releases Redsn0w 0.9.12b2

Jailbreak iPod Touch On iOS 4.2.1 Redsn0w

iPhone Dev team has just released a new version of Redsn0w 0.9.12b2.

The new version will now explicitly ask users of A4 or lower powered iOS devices if they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method. It also includes a fix for the iBooks issue for iPhone 3GS with oldroom.

When iPhone Dev team released Redsn0w 0.9.12b1, which includes support for pod2g’s iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, they had advised users of A4 powered iOS devices with lots of media to use the DFU ramdisk method. They’ve now explicitly asking users that question during the jailbreak process so that they don’t run into a problem later.

iPhone Dev team has provided the following information on their blog:

Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their devic% that would create very large backups, and it’s required for those with unactivated iPhones).  If you’ll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane.  It also fixes an iBooks issue on old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.
