    Default Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for iOS 5 Beta 5 Released


    Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta is done at your own risk. Be aware of the consequences and risks of jailbreaking on an iOS beta.

    MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) tweeted out that the iPhone Dev-Team has released an updated version (0.9.8b5) of redsn0w for iOS 5 Beta 5.



    To jailbreak iOS 5 beta 5, you must point redsn0w to the beta 5 IPSW. Remember: this is a tethered jailbreak so you jailbreak and use redsn0w at your own risk.

    Here are the respective links:

    redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.8b5 for Windows

    Note: This jailbreak does not work with the iPad 2 or any devices that are jailbroken with a non-bootrom jailbreak.

    It still amazes me how many people don't understand tethered vs untethered and ask why they cant reboot their phone after doing this. lol

    I'm glad it's tethered. If you're developing jb apps and tweaks with it, like you should be with this, then chances are you're near a computer :P

    It would be foolish to develop and release an untethered exploit for a beta firmware so Apple could patch it before the public release. Additionally there is a new iPhone coming out next month so it would be doubly foolish in case the exploit might work on the new device.

    I'd say 8, but it's all speculation. If 5.0 drops in mid September, 8+a GM would be perfect

    You forgot the work rumored in that second sentence.

    So why did Comex release JailbreakMe 3.0 before the official iOS 5 release?

    Because someone ELSE leaked the JBM exploit first, and started distributing the unreleased JBM code, months before Comex was ready. He released it when he did in the hopes that the official JBM 3 would get out the door and people would be able to use it before Apple patched and closed it.

    After the premature code release (out of his control)- 4.3.4 was just a matter of time.
