Redsn0w 0.9.12b1 Released
The popular jailbreaking application, redsn0w, is back in the game now with support for the latest untethered jailbreak for all devices running iOS 5.1.1 in version 0.9.12b1. Redsn0w will now jailbreak the iPad, iPad 2, the new iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 4G, and iPod touch 3G. The jailbreak implement’s pod2g’s Rocky Racoon untethered jailbreak method that was released with the Absinthe jailbreak tool for iOS 5.1.1.
With redsn0w being updated for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, Windows users can now pick between three tools – Absinthe, sn0wbreeze, or redsn0w. Mac users can pick between either Absinthe or redsn0w. Redsn0w and Absinthe will jailbreak all of the iOS 5.1.1 devices with just one click of a button without the need to enter DFU mode, while sn0wbreeze will only jailbreak A4 and earlier devices with the need to create a custom firmware and then use pwned DFU mode to install the jailbreak.
Using the new redsn0w, A4 and earlier iOS devices can have the Rocky Racoon untethered jailbreak installed one of two ways: backup and restore method – the way Absinthe installs it, or via ramdisk – this method is explained by the iPhone Dev Team to be safer because it won’t cause issues with iCloud later on:

My preferred method on my MacBook, since no absinthe versions have ever worked on it.....thanks devs, now I can stop using the pc to jailbreak.... That always feels so unnatural, mainly because it's a desk top and my MacBook is so much more.... Comfortable?

I used redsnow to jailbreak then installed rocky racoon. Any point to use this tool now? Or ultimately is it the same idea.?

So does redsn0w get the same lockdown errors as absinthe?

That's why I never updated my phone to 5.1.1 may do it now since redsnow is out.

All your purchased packages will be there when you log into your google account but I also go into my list of packages and repo's in Cydia and scroll though and take a screen shot of all my installed packages and repo's. Update my Phone, rejailbreak then install all my packages again. It's time consuming but I like to start fresh.

I've already jb my iphone 4 using absinthe. Do I really need to re-jb with redsnow? I enjoy being up-to-date with the most current software, etc....but if re-jb via redsnow means I'll have the same content as I did with Absinthe, then I don't really have to re-jb....right?

Correct your fine stay where you at.

what is the difference between redsn0w and absinthe ?!
06-04-2012, 05:08 PM #20
Redsnow normally comes with more features like create a custom firmware. Entering dfu mode if ya don't know how. Just some extras. Which absinthe just jailbreaks it and that's all
