    Default Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 Released

    Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 is fully compatible with the iOS 5.0.1 Beta released to developers yesterday.

    Yesterday, Apple pushed out the iOS 5.0.1 Beta to developers which has fixed numerous bugs in iOS 5 and brings the beloved multitasking gestures back to the original iPad. It was reported that iOS 5.0.1 could have been jailbroken with redsn0w 0.9.9b7, although you would need to point redsn0w to the iOS 5.0 firmware file, and the jailbreak was tethered.

    Quote Originally Posted by Dev-Team Blog
    Redsn0w version 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta that Apple let developers start testing this week (so you don’t have to play the “point at 5.0 IPSW” trick). Because the IPSW isn't public, you'll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).

    For those iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users who preserve their baseband, the Mac version can also produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSW's for 5.0.1. (But please note that ultrasn0w doesn't get updated for betas like this.)

    This is still a tethered jailbreak for all except old-bootrom 3GS users.
    This new update brings support for the iOS 5.0.1 Beta. Now if you have the iOS 5.0.1 Beta firmware on your computer, you can use redsn0w 0.9.9b8 and point redsn0w to your iOS 5.0.1 Beta firmware. The jailbreak method is the same for the iOS 5 jailbreak using redsn0w 0.9.9b7 and the jailbreak is still tethered as of this point. If a tethered jailbreak does not suit you well, then you have the option to install the Semi-Tether which allows you to boot up your iPhone into a non-jailbroken state after rebooting; you will be able to boot tethered later on to get your jailbreak data back up and running. Or, if you're more patient, you can keep waiting for the untethered jailbreak that i0n1c confirmed was being worked on.

    iPhone 3GS users can still have the untethered jailbreak if they have the old bootrom, and Mac users can still make their special baseband custom ISPW files using this redsn0w for iOS 5.0.1. The Dev-Team also warns that ultrasn0w will not be updated for the beta, so it's recommended that you wait until the official iOS 5.0.1 release to the public.

    You can download Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 for Mac, here.
    You can download Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 for Windows, here.

    Trying to decide if I should take the plunge and JB my iPhone 4. I'm happy with my jailbroken 4.1 right now...but some of the features of 5.0 are intriguing. I'm just not wild about the tethered part. The Semi-Tether tool is cool though. Will a jailbroken iPhone 4 run Siri?

    Nice to know that whatever exploit used in iOS 5 to get a tethered jailbreak still exists in iOS 5.0.1.Kind of glad I don't have an iPhone 4S. I don't really think I could sacrifice all my jailbreaking just for Siri and a nicer camera. iPhone 4 on iOS 5, tethered jailbreak is suiting me just fine.If only I could get that Siri port

    I was in the same boat. Had 4.1untethered for long time then I was like hell ya 5.0 is here lets update. Now I wish I stayed at 4.1 with untethered . Ain't nothing mind blowing about 5.0. You can get all the tweaks on cydia that were new to 5.0 except ICloud. It sux with no untethered on 5.0

    And no release of a port for Siri on ip4.as far as I know
