  • Jailbreak iOS 5 GM with Latest Redsn0w

    Disclaimer: Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta (GM) is done at your own risk.

    As we all know, today was Apple's long-awaited day to shows us what the company has in store. Details for the iPhone 4S are out as well as the iOS 5 GM, which is now available for developers via the Apple iOS Dev Center. This brings up the question; so how is the jailbreak community handling it? According to MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd), redsn0w seems to be on par with jailbreaking the newly released iOS 5 GM.

    One thing MuscleNerd noted is that you must point redsn0w to the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW, not the new GM IPSW. This is a matter of redsn0w not having updated the detection mechanism - but no matter, it works nonetheless!

    Here are the download links for the latest version of redsn0w:

    MMi Member Mirror for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.9b2 for Mac

    MMi Member Mirror for Win
    redsn0w 0.9.9b2 for Windows

    Note: This version of redsn0w does not allow you to jailbreak the iPad 2 on the iOS 5 GM. Also, this is a tethered jailbreak. When a untethered jailbreak is released, it will be heavily exemplified on.

    Update: redsn0w 0.9.9b3 was released. It now auto-detects the IPSW - no longer do you need to point at the beta 7 IPSW. The download links are below:

    redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for Windows

      It's awesome bro. I love how smooth it is on my i4, I can just imagine how fast and smooth it is on the 4s.
      Notifications are awesome and I love reminders and iCloud.
