  • redsn0w Updated for iOS 5 Jailbreak (Tethered)


    A few days earlier, MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) tweeted that he was able to run a tethered jailbreak of iOS 5 on his iPod Touch 4 device. With WWDC winding, the iPhone-Dev Team seemed like it would be a perfect time to release a developers version of redsn0w for the iOS 5 beta. MuscleNerd tweeted about 5 hours ago stating:

    It is currently only available for Mac users.

    The following devices are supported:
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPad 1
    • iPhone3GS
    • iPhone4 (GSM)
    • iPhone4 (CDMA)


    The team in an article on the iPhone Dev-Team blog specified a few warnings and precautionary actions. Please read carefully.
    • Unlockers and those preserving baseband STAY FAR AWAY from this release - this could end badly and possibly lose your unlockable baseband.
    • This beta release is intended for developers of jailbroken applications - Due to many of the components being very buggy or broken (Apple's official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, etc.), it is not necessarily useful for the average user. Take this as you will.
    • redsn0w WILL NOT hackivate 5.0b1 - Please do not pirate Apple software. This is available for those who have legitimate UDID activations and access to Apple distributed .ipsw files.
    • Tethered jailbreak only - no new exploits have been found or even being discussed. When using redsn0w, you must select "Just boot tethered right now" option when jailbreaking.
    • If you have the 06.15 baseband on your iPhone 3GS - this redsn0w release will get you paste the iTunes restore error you'll get when using the stock .ipsw file. For those not on the baseband, STAY AWAY.

    This release of redsn0w for Mac is available on the iPhone Dev-Team blog via this link:

      Ok...enough about iOS 5, all I wanna see is the release for a jail broken iPad 2. I say this on the condition of anonymity, cuz I fear for my life now that I said this in the wrong forum! :-D

      It will be soon. First Betas in the past have always been Mac only - this is the first time Apple have allowed Windows access to a first beta so it was a bit confusing. It is being worked on now so shouldn't be too long.
