So, your favorite iPhone hackers/Devs have done it again. RedSn0w 0.9beta is out and in the wild. For both Mac and Windows supporting all devices except the iPod Touch 3rd Gen, hence the reason its still Beta.
Straight from the RedSn0w support page:
“What is it?
A cross-platform jailbreaking, unlocking, and customizing tool for iPhones and iPod touches. Customizations include boot logos, recovery logos, and “verbose” boot. It’s a standalone program that doesn’t use iTunes (no custom IPSWs are involved).
We’ve been offering redsn0w in various incarnations over the years (including poorlad’s Windows version of QuickPwn). The most recent release before this one was redsn0w 0.8, which targeted Apple firmware 3.0/3.0.1.”
This does not fix the tethered jailbreak dilemma for those late model devices, like the newer iPhone 3G[S] or the iPod touch with the MC model number. RedSn0w even asks you if you have one of these devices. Answer correctly or you may need to do a restore after.
The new redsn0w works just as well with an already jailbroken device, to be used to change your boot logos, revert back to the stock logos, or switch verbose booting on and off. By selecting “Already Pwned” you can bypass the steps normally needed to enter the jailbroken state.Quick and safe, redsn0w Windows version has been in testing since mid Jan, but as always, back up all your data and pics, as it is still in beta. I have used the Mac version a few times already to change boot logos, and it feels as polished as anything the Dev team has released in the past.More info here
