The most popular untethered jailbreak tool from the iPhone Dev Team – Redsn0w has received another major update that gieves ability to users who can honestly test the solution to fix some minor bugs of their iPhone, iPad or iPod touche devices.
My friend asked me about the latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.10b8b whether its an untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak or not. No! its not, its simply an update that the iPhone-Dev Team has pushed to fix some compatibility issues with the previous version release, and doesn’t contain any new jailbreak exploits though.
But the jailbreak news said that the updated ersion 0.9.10b8b of Redsn0w makes the .zip files more compatible with the native Windows Explorer, which takes exception to leading slashes in the filenames.
The version of Redsn0w has now bumped up to 0.9.10b8b, and updated their official blog with some useful notes as well:
The 0.9.10b8b update to redsn0w makes the zip files more compatible with the native Windows explorer (which doesn’t like leading slashes in the filenames).
I suggested my friend that its a untether jailbreak tool that can perform an untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS with old bootrom, iPad 1, and 3rd/4rth iPod touch devices. First of all you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot. The iOS 5.1 isn’t yet supported by the latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.10b8b to untether JB on A4 or A5 chip devices like iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or new iPad 3rd-gen.
Note: If you’re running your iDevice on iOS 5.0.1 that’s ok, but if you want to make an untethered jailbreak then don’t update your device to iOS 5.1.
While the Mac version of Redsn0w didn’t get any changes, but the version number is now also uniformly in line with the Windows iteration, and to keep things fine. Both download links can be found below to grab, if you already jailbroken, then no need to re-jailbreak using the tool. If you new and performing jailbreak this for the first time can now follow our step-by-step guide on how-to instructions published here.
If you accidentally updated your iOS device to iOS 5.1 and have already saved SHSH Blobs of 5.0.1 then you can downgrade to iOS 5.0.1 with some l;ittle effort or by using Redsn0w’ latest version 0.9.10b8b.
While the legendary hacker, Pod2g continues to make progress of an untethered jailbreak of his iPhone 5 running iOS 5.1, which is taking more time to launch.
