  • RedSn0w 0.9 Released for Mac and Windows

    The first beta of RedSn0w 0.9 for Mac and Windows has been unveiled, with version 0.9 enabling jailbreaking, unlocking, and customizing of the iPhone OS 3.0/3.1.2 software.

    From this morning’s post on Erectric:

    It appears as if the iPhone Dev-Team is back at it again. The group has managed to release the RedSn0w 0.9 Beta jailbreak for all iPhones and the first and second generation iPod Touches today for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
    Strangely enough - and due to what’s being called “last minute software changes” - the Dev Team hasn’t rolled out the release yet with grand fanfare. Fortunately, however, we do know what to expect from the update. According to iClarified:

    • It uses our original Pwnage bootrom exploit for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, and iPod 1G. (Because it’s a bootrom exploit, it can’t be fixed by Apple without a new hardware release.) Note that redsn0w 0.9 does use the USB exploit for iPhone 3GS and iPod 2G running 3.1.2, but that exploit will be fixed in Apple’s next firmware release.
    • It offers custom logos and verbose boot
    • It installs Cydia without needing a separate download
    Despite blackra1n thriving as the jail breaking tool of choice, the new version of redsn0w could resonate with jail breakers new and old and perhaps become the hottest new tool in jail breaking.

    The RedSn0w jailbreak isn’t quite as fast as Blackra1n, but it is capable of handling more variations, according to the report.

      I ran blackra1n back in November on my 32gb 3gs. I haven't had any problems, except what I caused myself playing around in the file tree.
