    Default Redsn0w 0.9.9b5 Released - Mac Only For Now


    Just a few minutes ago, the redsn0w testers (@redsn0w_testers) Twitter account tweeted out that the iPhone Dev-Team released an update for redsn0w (bringing it to redsn0w 0.9.9b5). The primary goal behind this release was to update redsn0w with the new public URLS for IPSW files. Basically, this allows first-time iOS 5 jailbreakers to not have to supply an IPSW file to jailbreak on iOS 5.



    On the iPhone Dev-Team Blog, there was also mention that a little bit of functionality from PwnageTool was added to this release. In the Extras section in redsn0w, you can choose an option called "Custom IPSW" which will build an IPSW file without the baseband for 4.3.3 or iOS 5 GM (for iPhone 3GS and 4 only at this point). The team plans on updating PwnageTool for iOS 5 when an untethered jailbreak comes out.

    Here is the full update on what is new and important with redsn0w 0.9.9b5 (READ CAREFULLY. THE WARNINGS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT):

    Quote Originally Posted by iPhone Dev-Team Blog;
    Update #13: With today’s official iOS5 release, redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.9b5 to include the public URLs for the IPSW files. This way, first-time iOS5 jailbreakers don’t need to supply the IPSW file manually. It’s still a tethered jailbreak on all except the old-bootrom iPhone3GS, and it doesn’t apply to iPad2 or the upcoming iPhone4S.

    Because the jailbreak is currently only tethered for most devices, we’re not going to release a new PwnageTool yet. Instead, we’ve decided to build some of PwnageTool’s functionality into redsn0w (since you need redsn0w to “Just boot tethered” on every power cycle anyway). The new “Custom IPSW” button on the Extras screen will create a custom IPSW without the baseband update for 4.3.3 or 5.0gm (iPhone3GS and iPhone4 only, for now). Remember not to accidentally restore to the stock IPSW after you create the custom one! The custom one begins with NO_BB_ (for “no baseband”).

    You must enter “Pwned DFU” mode before trying to use the NO_BB_ IPSW with iTunes (and your hosts file cannot be pointing to Cydia’s servers due to the new blob nonce mechanism they’re using in iOS5).

    Version 0.9.9b5 is currently only available for Mac, until we can do more testing on the Windows version of “Custom IPSW”.

    We’re currently working on a normal compatibility update for current ultrasn0w unlockers. After that we’ll try to fix the iBooks issue on jailbroken iOS5.
    As mentioned in the title as well as the body of Update #13, this version of redsn0w is for Mac users only until more testing on Windows is done.

    Download the new redsn0w 0.9.9b5 beta for Mac right here:

    redsn0w 0.9.9b5 for Mac

    Reminders:
    • Redsn0w is still a tethered jailbreak except for iPhone 3GS old bootrom users. Otherwise, there is no untethered jailbreak at this time.
    • You cannot jailbreak your iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time

    I've been running the iOS5 betas, tethered, as soon as they were available. I've never been caught out without my phone, except on one occasion when I hadn't updated one of the betas for some time and I was locked out.It's stable as anything and unless you install some crazy unstable tweaks, then there's going to be no reason for you to restart your device when you're not at home. That's my opinion on tethered anyway.

    For anyone who doesn't know how to get into DFU mode learn before you try this JB. The countdown is WAYYYYYYYYYY off. Tethered jailbreaks aren't that bad. Agree with the previous poster on there not being may occasions I'll get caught having to reboot my phone

    So the custom firmware feature really just makes a firmware that doesn't include a BB update? After restoring to this custom firmware you still need to run redsn0w to jailbreak it, correct?

    I wouldn't mind it to bad but I have to power off my phone at minium of 2 times a week while I am out so tethered now doesn't work for me. Used tethered before.

    Yeah I would see it being a problem if I had to shut off my phone. In all honesty I'm having some problems with my phone freezing currently (probably my error) All i've downloaded from cydia is sbsettings. May just go back unjailbroken ios 5 and wait for something a little more stable and untethered.

    You need to "Boot tethered now" even though you are within your phone

    Darn, should've read here first. I also had the Cydia issue and thought it was some error so it's in the process of jailbreaking again - doh! Next time I'll make sure to boot tethered.

    Itís still a tethered jailbreak on all except the old-bootrom iPhone3GS
    So I could actually do an untethered JB + unlock on my 3GS if my bootrom is old enough?!
    What version would that be?

    Are you talking about the 'new ipt4g? Or the older model of the ipt4gen?
    The older one you can jailbreak untethered, assuming you mean the newer model..no there is no untethered jailbreak at this time because the new iPod touch ships with ios5.
    Hope this helps.

    The walk through timing to get yr phone into DFU in redsn0w.app is not working on my computer...... it goes into recovery mode instead of DFU.

    To get iPhone into DFU Mode (for the initial jailbreak or for a reboot):

    1. Open redsn0w.app, click "Jailbreak" (or Extra's" then click "Just Boot" once jailbroken for a reboot)
    2. Hold both the power and home button down for 10 seconds (does not matter if the phone is on or off)
    3. After 10 seconds release the POWER BUTTON ONLY, your phone will kick into DFU mode and redsn0w will see this and do its stuff, once you see redsn0w installing you can release the home button.

    My only problem at the moment is within Cydia, when I try to add a source or search for something using the keyboard, Cydia crashes..... I have rebooted a couple of times already.......any idea's?

    My problem is Safari and Mail app. once I update to iOS 5 thru iTunes everything works perfect, once I jailbreak and reboot tethered, Safari and Mail app open and crash, I rejailbreaked like 10 times already with the same issue.
