  • 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

      Of course, you need a freakin' overpriced Mac just to jailbreak. When 90% of the known world uses Windows. Great logic there.

      At least the damn 3G runs way better on 4.1.

      I think a cheap Mac will work too.

      Is this really a development? I thought that all they had to do for that is make Redsn0w recognize 4.1…

      Actually when the Q1 2010 market share report was announced it showed Mac grew to about 3.6% globally. So that only leaves 96.4% of the known world using Windows

      Cheap Mac? Isn't the only place you can get those is Apple fanboys throwing out their MacBook for their new MacBook Air? Just sneak into their trashcan by their house in the middle of the night… Or do Apple fanboys keep everything they ever bought from Apple?

      last I checked, this was an apple product forum. Don't know, I might be wrong.

      Nope, still is.

      Also last I checked, macs also cost only a small amount more than comparable computers. And they last a crap-load longer than your average windows "machine".


      OUT TROLL! OUT I SAY!!

      we keep it, because it works forever. I still have 15 year old macs that work.

      Don't think I can be classed a fanboy, we use Macs at work cus they're just easier to manage than the old Windows setup, so Dunno really. Personally I always sell old Macs at about the 18 month old stage, you normally get back about 60-70% of current RRP, meaning if you bough well in the first place you often don't lose much at all. Which of course makes Macs not in the least bit expensive.

      I see that this is for the 2g and 3g, does that exclude the 3gs at the moment or would I be wrong in thinking that....

      nope, they need to port the jailbreak to fix some bugs that interfere with it. It usually takes a week or two to get it going.

      Next time do the opposite and people like that won't jump on you for asking questions you would get answers to by just reading the article.

      Once again, I'm disappointed in redsn0w. Redsn0w is for Mac...but only an Intel Mac. Please release a version that works on the older PowerMacs.
