  • Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 Released

    ...And the Jailbreak chase continues...

    It is now one day after the release of iOS 5 Golden Master edition. Already, the Dev Team rolled out some updates for Redsn0w supporting iOS 5 Golden Master edition. Yesterday, covered here by Joshua Tucker, we explained how you could use Redsn0w 0.9.9b2 (guide updated for 0.9.9b3 as well) to perform a tethered jailbreak on your iDevice with iOS 5 GM by pointing to your iOS 5 beta 7 firmware in Redsn0w.

    Update #11: redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.9b3 to auto-detect iOS5 GM firmware. Remember: it’s still tethered for all devices except for iPhone 3GS with old bootrom. If you don’t use redsn0w to “Just boot” at power up, all jailbreak apps (and even some native ones like MobileSafari) will fail to launch.

    If you already jailbroke the GM by pointing an older redsn0w at the beta7 IPSW, there’s no need to re-run the full jailbreak step again…just use this newer one to make the tethered boot easier

    Update #11a: We’ve replaced the Windows version of 0.9.9b3 with 0.9.9b3a. The new version fixes a caching bug that affected only Windows users — point it one more time at your iOS5GM IPSW, and from then on you won’t have to point at it again.
    The new version comes with compatibility with the iOS 5 GM and it auto detects your firmware so that you do not need to point to any firmware when jailbreaking. It is a tethered jailbreak for all devices running iOS 5 GM except the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S. After jailbreaking, if you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it’s because you didn’t boot tethered.

    **NOTICE**
    The Windows version, linked above, of Redsn0w is version 0.9.9b3a. It is an update from the version 0.9.9b3. The new version fixes a caching bug that affected only Windows users — point it one more time at your iOS 5 GM firmware, and from then on you won’t have to point at it again. It you downloaded Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 earlier, you may want to re-download this new release which is more stable.

    Also, Windows users, you might be interested to hear this:

    If you're using Windows, are you planning on taking advantage of the new Boot Tethered naming feature that the iPhone Dev Team has included? Share below!

      Way to early to tell that. If you want a unlocked one then your best bet is to buy a factory unlocked one from Apple.

      I am guessing they will be:
      $649 for 16gb
      $749 for 32gb
      $849 for 64gb

      I'm sure you might be able to put a higher price tag on that. After all they are now World Phones.

      Got that from Apple's discussion forum. Seems to fall in line with their current pricing structure for unlocked iPhones.

      No such thing as the iTouch, so, no.

      You could always just wait until it is released next week. You can't be in THAT big of a hurry.
