  • Jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 7 with Redsn0w 0.9.8b7

    Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta is done at your own risk. Note the consequences and possible issues you may run in to if you jailbreak on the iOS 5 beta.

    As mentioned a little while earlier, Apple released iOS 5 beta 7 to developers. For those of us that are jailbroken, generally speaking, we have to wait a little bit until the next jailbreak for the beta is released. This time, that is not the case. MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) just tweeted out that if you wish to jailbreak on iOS 5 beta 7, you can use the recently released redsn0w (v0.9.8b7).



    Just one thing to note: you must point redsn0w to the beta 6 IPSW file for redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 7.

    Here are the links. Enjoy:

    redsn0w 0.9.8b7 for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.8b7 for Windows

    If you'd like to read the changelog for iOS 5 beta 7, read this article from BGR.

    NOTE: The iPad 2 is not jailbreakable on the iOS 5 beta.

      With all the beta releases being jb pretty fast, when the next iPhone is release, hopefully a jb will be released just as quick.
