iPhone Dev Team has already released the first beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.7.This beta version comes with a new feature called “Jailbreak Monte” using the “Backup Method“, that allows to jailbreak (untethered) certain devices on iOS 4.2.1.This beta version of Redsn0w will enable you to jailbreak (untethered) iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.2.1.

Here is the complete step by step guide to use Redsn0w 0.9.7 b1. Before you proceed, read the following “updated warnings/notes” from iPhone Dev Team:

* This is a beta tester program. It’s not a general release! Things can go very wrong, so please don’t even consider testing if you have pictures or other media on your device that you haven’t backed up!
* For the same reason, please don’t participate if you rely on the ultrasn0w carrier unlock. Wait for the final version!
* Until we fix some sandbox issues with bluetooth, the bluetooth functionality is disabled.

The steps are given below.

Step 1: Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop and in it place:
– Xcode (also found on your Mac OS X Install DVD)
– MacPorts
– Usbmuxd
– RedSn0w 0.9.7b2
– iOS 4.2.1 (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch)
– iOS 4.2b3 *Only iPhone developers have legit access to this firmware

Step 3: Double click the MacPorts dmg to mount it then double click the pkg to install the application.

Step 4: Open Terminal from Applications:Utilities then input the following. If asked for a password then enter your administrator password.

    Help me please !!

    Hi ! I completed the jb with redsn0w 0.9.7b6 at my iphone4 at 4.2.1 and everything went fine, but now I have a huge problem…I can no longer connect my iphone to my mac or pc. Every time I connect it, it charges but both my mac and my pc do not recognise it. Also itunes does not recognise it. I guess it has something to do with usbmuxd, but I don’t know what to do…Could someone help me with that ?

    Thank you all !!
