  • Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 Released

    Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 is fully compatible with the iOS 5.0.1 Beta released to developers yesterday.

    Yesterday, Apple pushed out the iOS 5.0.1 Beta to developers which has fixed numerous bugs in iOS 5 and brings the beloved multitasking gestures back to the original iPad. It was reported that iOS 5.0.1 could have been jailbroken with redsn0w 0.9.9b7, although you would need to point redsn0w to the iOS 5.0 firmware file, and the jailbreak was tethered.

    Quote Originally Posted by Dev-Team Blog
    Redsn0w version 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta that Apple let developers start testing this week (so you don’t have to play the “point at 5.0 IPSW” trick). Because the IPSW isn't public, you'll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).

    For those iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users who preserve their baseband, the Mac version can also produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSW's for 5.0.1. (But please note that ultrasn0w doesn't get updated for betas like this.)

    This is still a tethered jailbreak for all except old-bootrom 3GS users.
    This new update brings support for the iOS 5.0.1 Beta. Now if you have the iOS 5.0.1 Beta firmware on your computer, you can use redsn0w 0.9.9b8 and point redsn0w to your iOS 5.0.1 Beta firmware. The jailbreak method is the same for the iOS 5 jailbreak using redsn0w 0.9.9b7 and the jailbreak is still tethered as of this point. If a tethered jailbreak does not suit you well, then you have the option to install the Semi-Tether which allows you to boot up your iPhone into a non-jailbroken state after rebooting; you will be able to boot tethered later on to get your jailbreak data back up and running. Or, if you're more patient, you can keep waiting for the untethered jailbreak that i0n1c confirmed was being worked on.

    iPhone 3GS users can still have the untethered jailbreak if they have the old bootrom, and Mac users can still make their special baseband custom ISPW files using this redsn0w for iOS 5.0.1. The Dev-Team also warns that ultrasn0w will not be updated for the beta, so it's recommended that you wait until the official iOS 5.0.1 release to the public.

      I believe what he is saying is that when he installs tweaks from cydia it won't boot back up. Even tethered boot.
      Keep in mind that not all tweaks are going to work on iOS 5. I have had to restore several times because I installed something that wasn't ready yet.

      Frantic enough? It's just an iPhone!
      The only thing you can do is wait. For a loonnnngggg time. Apple stopped signing iOS 4.3.5 on October 18th. So if you can downgrade current baseband, yes. If not, no.
      There is a fantastic wealth of information on the site known as "Google". They have the answers to this and all of life's questions.

      Ever? Evers a long time
      So eventually yeah probably like in 2-4 months after the Jailbreak is released is my guess

      And since iOS5 on an iPhone 4s is all ready jailbroken just not for the public, probably aweek after 5.01 is delivered to the public then the jailbreak will be released then 2-4 months from then for the unlock but this is all guess work

      Hoping that official release of 5.0.1 will = untethered iOS 5 JB. Only reason I can think of for not having it now is 1) devs are waiting for the inevitable fw update that always occurs shortly after the initial release of a major fw update or 2) devs can't find as much time to work on it or are having a harder time this time around.Either way, fingers crossed for the untethered version after 5.0.1.

      Do you think (or maybe know) if the untethered JB for iOS5+ is proving quite tricky and time consuming or are those that can do such things waiting till Apple have a definitive stable variant of iOS5 like 5.1 or so?

      I don't know what's going on but Windows is not finding the Apple Mobile Device (Recovery Mode) driver.
