  • Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 : iOS 4.1/4.0 Jailbreak for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G


    The Dev-Team has just released a fresh beta version of redsn0w, version 0.9.6b1, which allows users to jailbreak the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.1 or 4.0.

    The tool uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we’ve all been using with redsn0w since the 2.x days. There is nothing new for Apple to patch from this update, it's simply still compatible.

    For those that are getting excited, settle down: this does not include the SHAtter exploit that has been on everyones mind lately.

    IF YOU USE THE ULTRASN0W UNLOCK, PLEASE WAIT FOR PWNAGETOOL TO SUPPORT 4.1. DO NOT USE REDSN0W. That’s because to use redsn0w at 4.1, you need to already have updated to official 4.1 from Apple. If you do that, you lose the ultrasn0w unlock (possible forever).
    Currently redsn0w 0.9.6b1 is only available for Mac OSX, but a little birdie tells me that iH8sn0w may have the same thing up his sleeve for the same situation, but for Windows users.

    Note: if you have an “MC” model of the ipt2g, your jailbreak will be tethered…sorry! (Consider rolling back to a FW supported by jailbreakme.com or spiritjb.com)
    Learn more about the specifics at the Dev-Team's Official Blog. Also check out the Wiki if its not overloaded with traffic http://wikee.iphwn.org/howto:rsbeta

      But as a side note, THANKS DEVS!
      I hope you're joking! What are you doing reading Tweets while driving? Get off the road before you kill someone!

      @ STROODLE

      I'm running a 3g, on 4.1, as I accidentally upgraded when I was half asleep
      Apparently, there is a fix coming soon for 3g's lagging etc coming soon, not sure if it will be included in an iOS though

      Is it just me, or is anyone else getting a little tired of Mr. Nick Hesson's headliner images? I feel like the main screen on MMI is one big hodge podge of blue and boring images. Its great that he can turn out stories left and right, and have one basic photoshop base saved that he can layer with whatever he wants, but I'm much more inclined to look else where for mac news because of this. Marketing tip: presentation is never irrelevant.

      There are still people with old devices you know, this has been released 1st because it's an adapted version of the old rsn0w which still uses the dfu exploit, unlike greenpoison which is using a brand new exploit, so it will need to be tested again and again until they iron out all the bugs.
      What would you prefer a shot jailbreak with massive amounts of bugs etc. Or one that actually works like it's sposed to?
      Stop being such an impatient little kid!

      I'm confused, wasn't the iOS 4.1 the fix for the 3G lag issue? Therefore don't you already have the fix for the lag issues on previous 4.0.x iOS?

      So this will enable all the normal 4.1 features for the 2g and 3G , like multitasking ?

      For those interested, I've just JB's my 4.1 3g and added multi-tasking and the battery percentage. I've added nothing else, not even opened the Cydia store. Speed seems to have taken a bit of a hit, it's a wee bit laggy now, but nowhere near as bad as the phone was under 4.0 or 4.0.1, JB'd or not.

      Providing the phone doesn't grind to a halt in the next few days the slight loss of speed is worth the trade off to get multi-tasking for me personally.
