Dev-Team has just released the Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 for Mac and Windows. This updated version of Redsn0w allows Windows users to restore to custom ipsw file and it also brings back custom bootlogos for iPhone3GS owners with older bootroms. Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 uses the limera1n’s exploit to jailbreak the iOS devices.

Update: New features added in redns0w 0.9.6b2:

  • Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 can jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 2G ( non MC only) and iPad.
  • Custom bootlogos for iPhone3G/iPhone3GS/iPod2G users (with qualifying bootroms)
  • An option that implements the “DFU” button in PwnageTool.  This button (which you can use from Windows) lets you prepare your device for a custom DFU.  Even if you’re purely a Windows user, you can get a trusted friend to run PwnageTool over your IPSW to create a custom IPSW.  You can now install that custom IPSW on your own Windows box, after you run this redsn0w version.

For Windows users who have run redsn0w and chosen “Just enter pwned DFU mode right now”, your device is now completely vulnerable.  Running iTunes and selecting a custom IPSW from PwnageTool (choose it by pressing Shift+Restore)….you’ve now convinced your device and iTunes to restore to a custom firmware.  Congratulations!

If you are timid about software and running these programs…please just wait!  Don’t jeopardize your carrier unlock for a firmware upgrade.  Wait for even easier methods than this latest redsn0w release.

You can follow the step-by-step guides posted here (Windows) and here (Mac) to jailbreak your iOS device with redsn0w.

Update by Dev-Team for iOS 4.2 GM: Today Apple released to developers the GM seed for 4.2.  Tinkerers will find that yesterday’s redsn0w jailbreaks today’s 4.2 GM seed, simply by pointing redsn0w at the 4.1 IPSW (rather than the 4.2 one).  Right now it mostly only makes sense for JB app developers to do that because many apps (including Cydia itself) need to be updated for 4.2.  However, if all you want to do is enable afc2 (to use iFunBox or other file browsers), or to tweak settings like Battery % and Homescreen wallpapers, then go for it (if you have valid paid access to the GM seed).  Be sure to uncheck the Cydia box, though!  Ultrasn0w unlockers should stay very far away from this!!
