RedSn0w 0.9.6 Beta2 Released; Jailbreak All iDevices Running iOS 4.1

The iPhone Dev Team has just released Beta2 of  Redsn0w 0.9.6 which is based on Geohot’s limera1n exploit and it can jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad (on iOS 3.2.2) and iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G (Non MC Model only).

This new version also offers custom boot land recovery logos for the older devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) iPod touch 2G (Non MC), and iPhone 3G, along with the ability to let Windows users restore to a custom IPSW files just like PwnageTool for Mac.

Unfortunately, since PwnageTool is Mac only, Windows users still need to obtain the custom IPSW from a friend or download it from the internet.

Halloween treat: upcoming redsn0w offers pwned-DFU (limera1n) mode… Windows users can then restore to custom IPSW

(tonight’s Halloween redsn0w will also bring back custom bootlogos for iPhone3GS owners with older bootroms)

For latest redsn0w users: “Just enter pwned DFU mode” is mostly for Windows users. The “Just boot tethered” is for future

This release like the previous one also supports iOS 4.2 betas. But, we strongly recommend to stay off betas as Cydia and tons of others stuff is currently is still in development for iOS 4.2.

As per the Dev-Team blog:

In the meantime, we’ve also incorporated the limera1n exploit into redsn0w.  But we’ve added a few extras:

  • 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.

The instructions are similar to the ones posted here from earlier release.

NOTE for Unlockers:

  • If your baseband is 05.14.04 / 2.10.4, Ultrasn0w unlock won’t work on your iPhone. You will have to wait till iOS 4.2 is released, as the Dev-Team plans on updating the tool after the new OS is released.

ULTRASN0W UNLOCKERS BEWARE!! ULTRASN0W UNLOCKERS BEWARE!! The biggest mistake you can make (and it is a big one!) is lettings iTunes restore to the official IPSW — you’ll lose the unlock and won’t be able to go back!  You must use Option-Restore, not just the Restore button by itself.  Then navigate to your custom IPSW — not to the stock one!  If you accidentally started a restore to the official IPSW, unplug your iPhone immediately before the restore gets to the “Updating Firmware” step!
