  • 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)

      I'm interested to know when the untethered version will be coming as well.

      No hurry though, I'm fine with 5.0.1 and it doesn't seem like there's a huge upgrade in 5.1 for the iP4, not like the so-called "4G" that the 4S got

      Ok i'm confused here. When you say Apple Stopped signing 5.0.1 what exactly Do you mean?. I downloaded TinyUmbrella and saved it because I accidentally updated to 5.1 and when i tried to restore to 5.01 but it keeps telling me that it's i forgot but something about built eligible. So i am i not able to restore back to 5.0.1? and get my jailbreak back?

      Apple sign FW and you can only restore to the FW see Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)
      If you have not saved your Blobs you can not downgrade - but as you give no further information as to which device you have it may not be possible to downgrade even with Blobs - see Dev-Team Blog - March Mayhem
      How can you 'accidentally' update your FW?

      Im having a problem runnning this on my Dell Inspiron 15r. Once it gets to the stage where it says "exploiting with lime rain" it just sits there. I let it sit there for 1 hour before I gave up.I have tried it multiple times. Any help would be good

      Try counting the last 15 seconds in your head even after the walk through for dfu mode disappears

      A lot of people are working on it. If anyone else can do better then they would be very happy but when people are doing there very best, which is far better than anyone else can do, and they get criticised they do wonder if it's worth it.

      They are human, they do their best which is far better than anyone else can do. Things may not happen as fast as you want but please spare a thought for the genii who do this for our collective good.

      Guys & Gals I took the chance and broke 5.1 (tethered).. The problems way outweigh the advantages..The Dev-Teams suggestion to WAIT FOR THE UNTETHERED build is SPOT-ON !!!

      There are still a lot of tweaks incompatible with 5.1
