Redsn0w 0.9.9b1 Released - Tons of New Features
Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 beta is down at your own risk. Note the consequences and possible issues you may run into when using redsn0w on the iOS 5 beta
With iOS 5 on the heels of release, it would make sense that the iPhone hackers are vigorously working hard. Their goal is to ensure that the tools necessary for jailbreaking are ready for the upcoming iOS public release (in this case, iOS 5). Plus they are looking to improve the process and experience in any way possible. This update round with redsn0w certainly made its goal and brought on a ton of new features. MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) alerted us yesterday that redsn0w 0.9.9b1 was released and that it houses a ton of new improvements and features. Instead of elaborating in full detail on each component myself, the iPhone Dev-Team Blog prepared a nice summary to what is new with this redsn0w release. The information is below:

One thing you may realize from the new update is that after using redsn0w with the IPSW file for the first time, you will never have to pick the IPSW file again. According to MuscleNerd, redsn0w now caches the information from Apple so that you no longer have to choose the IPSW every time you need to reboot tethered (for instance). This is quite handy and is a great addition to redsn0w.
Download redsn0w 0.9.9b1 for your respective system via the following links:
redsn0w 0.9.9b1 for Mac
redsn0w 0.9.9b1 for Windows
Note: The iOS 5 beta firmwares, along with iOS 4.3.4-4.3.5 (and for Verizon 4.2.9-4.2.10), are still tethered jailbreaks. Also, this version of redsn0w is not applicable for the iPad 2

Other teams and individuals do but not the Dev Team.
With MN out in Korea for the next week he is actually using UltraSn0w himself for the first time so actually getting some benefit from his amaising workHe who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I am a new user of iphone. I've been reading and realise that you guys are are doing a great job here.
MOst a noob to a slight learner, i am glad that we have genuises like you in the jb community.
i do have a few qns b4 i jb my iphone 4, on 4.3.5:
1) is there a confirmed workable downgrade to 4.3.3 or earlier? i wish to do so so that i can go to jailbreakme.com to do the simple jb.
2) if not, is it possible to jb, and yet the existing apps on the Appstore stilll remains on the springboard?
3) if i opt for the redsn0w 0.9.9b1 version to jb, i understand that it is tethered. my qn is: in future when the untethered method using redsn0w is available, can i switch to this new untethered version?
Thank you very much!

3) Yes, but without knowing how it will be implimented it might involve a restore and there is no guarantee of when this will be.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

RedSnow just JailBreaks your existing FW, itjust adds Cydia tou your existing set up, nothing else changes.
Pwnage / Sn0wbreeze make you restore a new FW so you lose everything - until you restore from a backup made in iTunes, then you get everything from the app store back and only lose Cydia apps which can be backed up with pkgbackup from the Cydia store.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes.

Hey guys, do I need iTunes to JB?
N must it be the latest version? Thanks!

You do not need iTunes to use RedSn0w.

RedSn9w does not preserve the BB. For that you need pwnage to make a new ipsw.
