DevTeam has recently released another version of Redsn0w which let you JailBreak your iDevice running on the iOS 5 developer version and it uses the same limera1n bootrom exploit and the JailBreak is tethered, but you need to use Redsn0w everytime you boot your device to properly function every feature again. Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 doesn’t activate any of the iDevice, is only meant for developers who have a UDID from Apple to JailBreak their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad………..
Apple‘s new beta version of iOS 5 has been jailbroken for the second time this week, now opening the door for users to jailbreak their iOS 5 devices using the latest version of the popular Redsn0w tool and the redsn0w jailbreak will let users install Cydia, which allows them to use apps unapproved and unsanctioned by Apple. There are a few major caveats you should be aware of before using redsn0w 0.9.8b1:
- iOS 5 is currently only available to developers or other folks with developer IDs, so if you don’t have iOS 5 yet you should probably ignore this for now.
- A number of apps including some official iOS apps as well as 3rd party and Cydia Store apps don’t work properly after jailbreaking iOS 5.
- If you have a phone with an unlockabled baseband you shouldn’t just avoid the latest jailbreak, you should probably avoid iOS 5 altogether for now.
- This is a tethered jailbreak, which means if you reboot your device you’ll have to run redns0w again.
You will very likely lose your unlockable baseband if you try to install iOS 5. There are just too many broken components (Apple’s official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, Cydia apps, MobileSubstrate apps, etc) for this to be useful to anyone but those truly looking to fix bugs in their iOS 5 jailbroken apps. You need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past all the new activation screens. PLEASE DON’T PIRATE APPLE SOFTWARE! Only registered devs with Macs can develop iOS applications, and only those people will have legitimate access to the beta IPSWs. No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost. You will need to use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered now” to be able to use many things, including Cydia and Safari. If you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it’s because you didn’t boot tethered. If you have the 06.15 baseband on your 3GS, this redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error you’ll get when using the stock IPSW (nobody other than those with the 06.15 baseband should be going anywhere near the stock IPSW!). The way redsn0w works, you will very likely be able to use this on upcoming iOS5 betas, just by continuing to point redsn0w at the 5.0b1 IPSW. Although most people just launch redsn0w by double-clicking it, remember there are “advanced” options available to those who invoke it from the Terminal shell:
The following devices are supported:
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
- iPad 1
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPhone4 (CDMA)
