  • Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 Released


    Not even 24 hours after Apple announces and releases iOS 5.1 to the public, the iPhone Dev-Team has already updated redsn0w to version 0.9.10b6 to support a TETHERED jailbreak for non-A5 device owners running iOS 5.1. Old bootrom iPhone 3GS models will still have the untethered jailbreak; iPad 2 and iPhone 4S owners will not be able to jailbreak at iOS 5.1 and there will be no way for them to downgrade back to iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 once Apple stops signing the iOS 5.0.1 firmware.

    Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 still supports the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 – there is no rush to update. In fact, in a recent blog post by the iPhone-Dev Team dubbed March Mayhem, you are advised to avoid upgrading to iOS 5.1 completely until an untethered jailbreak can be created. If you feel like a jailbreak is unimportant compared to being able to use iPhoto, delete photos from Photo Stream, and having an always existent camera slider on your lock screen, then you can update if you like; nothing groundbreaking was released in iOS 5.1.

    Because redsn0w 0.9.10b6 is a tethered jailbreak for non-A5 devices, you will need to ‘boot tethered’ every time you attempt to turn on or reboot your iDevice after you have applied the tethered jailbreak. The iPhone Dev-Team warns anyone relying on an unlock that wants to install iOS 5.1 and perform the tethered jailbreak to make a custom .ISPW file with the NO_BB_* version of iOS 5.1 to restore to. They say ultrasn0w will be updated in the next couple of days to support it.

    An iBooks fix is not existent in the iOS 5.1 tethered jailbreak, so if you rely on iBooks for your purchased content then this is another reason to stay away from iOS 5.1. A future version of redsn0w has been cited to contain a fix for iBooks. The full iPhone Dev-Team update below:

With all of that in mind, we realize that some of you non-A5 jailbreakers are itching to get to 5.1, even though there seems to be no compelling new feature there. Because of geohot’s limera1n exploit, those with devices earlier than the iPad2 can test the 5.1 jailbreak waters if they really want to, using redsn0w 0.9.10b6. Here’s what you need to know:
    • This is a *tethered* 5.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices. You’ll need to use redsn0w to “Just Boot” your device every time it power cycles, otherwise jailbreak apps won’t work (neither will Safari).
    • If you use ultrasn0w for your carrier unlock, be sure to use a custom IPSW to get to 5.1 first! Don’t ever restore to a stock Apple IPSW! Use redsn0w’s “Custom IPSW” button to create a NO_BB_* version of the 5.1 IPSW and restore to that instead of the stock one. (That option is available only to 3GS and iPhone4-GSM owners.) ultrasn0w itself will be updated for 5.1 in the next few days (same baseband support, not 5.1’s baseband).
    • If you’re lucky enough to have an old-bootrom 3GS, this jailbreak is actually untethered (redsn0w will figure that part out automatically).
    • While we were at it, we added pod2g’s steaks4uce exploit to support MC models of the iPod touch 2G (whose last firmware was 4.2.1). So now redsn0w will auto-detect and jailbreak both MB and MC versions of that older device.
    • iBooks won’t work until a future update of redsn0w
    ModMyi's own advice to you? Stay away from iOS 5.1 until an untethered jailbreak is created.

    Here are the download links for redsn0w 0.9.10b6:
    Mac OS X
    Windows (Run in administrator mode)

      put your device in DFU mode, (turn off phone, then hold down power button for 3 seconds, without releasing the power button hold down the home button for 9 seconds then once the screen goes blank let go of the power button and continue holding the home button until your computer recognizes your device) then go into device manager (if you are using windows) expand the category entitiled "Universal Serial Bus controllers" then right click on "Apple Mobile Device USB driver" and select properties. Select the details tab, then in the drop down menu search for "device instance path", and select it. Under value, scroll across to the end and look at the number after "IBOOT" if the number is 359.2, it is the old bootrom. If the number is 359.2.3 or higher, it is the new bootrom. It doesn't matter if you have a MB or MC model, this is the official test. Hope this helps.

      trying to jailbreak my girlfriend ATT iPhone 4 running 5.0 with this new resn0w, but keeps telling me it's jailbroken tethered. I've ran it 3-4 times with the same outcome, installing cydia, and not installing cydia. Why can't I untether!?

      EDIT: Also, Cydia won't even launch now.

      Ugggh..ok, well my second question is, now that I am tethered on 5.0, why am still able to reboot the phone? I seem to have full functionality MINUS the ability to launch Cydia. That's not the normal tethered behavior is it?

      And yes, I meant 5.0. Any help!?

      hey pal. grab ifaith from ih8sn0w.com, run that, download your corresponding 5.0.1 Ipsw, restore to 5.0 using the shsh you just got w/ ifaith, when that's done, point redsnow to the 5.0.1 Ipsw, then jailbreak. this has worked for me before, untethered.

      2k1 while I'm glad you actually took the time to respond I'd rather some1 with thorough knowledge actually reply. As far as I know you cannot save shsh and ap tickets from an iPhone 4s like you can an iPhone 4.

      Typically Apple will stop that from happening because 5.1 is out. That window is closed since they are not signing 5.0.1 anymore.

      Thank you for your response man..much appreciated! Now my question is, will I be able to download a 5.0.1 ipsw having never updated to that, or ever using iFaith or TinyUmbrella to save my SHSH or APTickets? It's my girlfriends phone, and never thought to save her blobs or anything...

      you'll be able to download it , but not restore to it (unless you have the blobs for 5.0.1).

      Sounds good..but how will I be able to download and use 5.0.1 if Apple is no longer signing it?

      If you have your shsh/aptickets saved then you will create a custom ipsw with ifaith or redsn0w. Then you'll have to put your non A5 device into pwned dfu (ifaith or redsn0w will also this for you), open iTunes and hold the shift button while clicking restore. It'll open a window. Choose the custom ipsw you created and it'll restore to 5.0.1

      I don't think you're understanding what I'm saying..

      you've got two options of what firmware you can be on: 5.0 or 5.1.

      I'm saying if you want an untether, ifaith restore to 5.0, point redsnow to the 5.0.1 ipws (while on 5.0) and perform an untether that way. 5.0 doesn't officially support the 5.0.1 corona untether, but it does support it unofficially (the same holes are present, but the devs only officially released it the jb for 5.0.1). whether or not you do what I said, I strongly suggest you back up your 5.0 blobs and apticket.

      the best place for ios ipsw download is usually felixbruns.de, but I don't think it has 5.0.1, just 5.0. so just google for download links (I think the pirate bay would even have it)
