MuscleNerd, the developer of the jailbreak tool Redsn0w reported that there will be a major upgrade to Redsn0w before his trip to Korea and the new features are very clear in the screenshot above, but one of the interesting thing he mentioned is that you’ll not select you .ipsw firmware anymore, which means it will be a one-click jailbreak just like geohot jailbreak tools. RedSn0w will now automatically fetch the important pieces directly from Apple and the means no more downloading huge .ipsw files like the current version.  The new version will download only the essential information required to jailbreak an iOS device and this could have just been a lucky visit for a popular Apple jailbreaker, but there’s also the possibility it means that Apple is courting his talent…………….

 

MuscleNerd has announced that a major update to popular jailbreaking tool Redsn0w is on its way which lets users jailbreak without needing to point at an IPSW and also lets users submit SHSH blobs to Cydia. The famous jailbreak developer sent out the following from his Twitter account:

Will be pushing out a major redsn0w feature upgrade before my trip to Korea: http://is.gd/PMAdT1 (and look, no IPSW selection button!)

MuscleNerd said his is a significant feature upgrade to Redsn0w and it’s main new feature is how people looking to jailbreak their iOS device will not have to download those humongous .ipsw files that current and previous versions of Redsn0w required. The new Redsn0w will only download the essential bits and pieces required for the jailbreaking an iOS device. These bits and pieces will be downloaded automatically from Apple’s servers and Redsn0w then applies the jailbreak. The tool automatically finds out which iOS device and which iOS version number is being run and it then applies tethered or untethered jailbreak depending on which kind of jailbreak your device supports. From MuscleNerd himself:

@mahockey1 it automatically fetches the important pieces directly from Apple (and caches them so that it never needs to re-fetch them again)

This auto-downloading and auto-selection of IPSW files is not for beta versions of iOS, so this will not work any of the iOS 5 betas. Instead, you will have to provide the IPSW file yourself. Once it has been selected from Redsn0w, it will be cached so you won’t have to download/select it again. The updated version of Redsn0w will be released as early as Monday.
