Redsn0w 0.9.8b7 Released - Fixes Minor Issues
Using redsn0w on the iOS 5 beta is done at your own risk. Note the consequences and possible issues you may run in to by using redsnow on the iOS 5 beta firmware.
If you recall about a week ago, the iPhone Dev-Team released redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6. Although no new beta for iOS 5 has been noted or released, the iPhone Dev-Team has updated redsn0w again to fix a few issues, according to MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd)'s recent tweet.
Here are the details to the updated version:
Originally Posted by iPhone Dev-Team Blog;
- redsn0w 0.9.8b7 can handle both the old and new iOS beta 6 IPSW files for the iPad 1 since Apple updated it without changing the version number or filename. Basically it means you can point redsn0w at either one of those IPSW files when jailbreaking or rebooting tethered
- This new version adds full support for a tethered 4.3.5/4.2.10 jailbreak. In the previous version, you had to point redsn0w to the 4.3.4/4.2.9 IPSW file. With this version, you can point it directly at the 4.3.5/4.2.10 IPSW file
- Also, a 4.2.10 problem was fixed
Although this update may not be applicable for you to use now (as you might be already jailbroken on iOS 5 beta 6, 4.3.5, or 4.2.10 without issues), whenever needing to re-jailbreak or reboot tethered for any of these tethered firmwares, use the new updated version. Just remember that you can point the 4.3.5/4.2.10 IPSW when jailbreaking or rebooting tethered on those firmwares. If you are experiencing issues on any of the firmwares supported in this update (especially 4.2.10 users), try out the new version of redsn0w and see if that helps out.

Patiently waiting for untethered jailbreak.

I am just preparing people for the wait, including myself. I would love to be wrong though

The recent untethers have been done by iOn1c and they have patched his exploits - I really don't see any sign of another untether soon.
While I have the greatest of respect for the Chronic team I doubt if they can provide an untether or a JB for the iP5 - assuming it's running an A5 chip.
I look forward to them proving me wrong.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't anyone find it suspicious Apple hasn't closed the exploit used to jailbreak iOS 4 in the iOS 5 betas? I hate to say it but I think Apple is holding off on closing this exploit until the final release so the dev team has to start from scratch taking away their apparent head start.

The JB exploit can't be closed by FW - it takes a HW change. A tethered JB will always be available to those that have it now. The untether has been blocked and new HW will block the JB.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
