iPhone Dev Team today released the windows version of redsn0w to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running the developer build of iOS 5 firmware. The tool uses Geohot’s bootrom exploit for a tethered jailbreak. Follow our guide in case you want to tether jailbreak your iPhone 4/3GS, iPad 1G or iPod touch 4G/3G.
Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 jailbreak comes with several caveats -
- Ultrasn0w unlockers MUST stay away from updating their iPhone handset to iOS 5 firmware; else it will update your existing baseband to 04.11.04 which is currently locked.
- If you have got developer access please go ahead but do not use pirated bits. It is important to note that most of the Cydia apps are currently broken including Apple’s official apps.
- This redsn0w will not Hacktivate 5.0b1 and you MUST be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past all the new activation screens.
