The iPhoneDev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 for Windows and Mac to jailbreak iOS 5 firmware. Previous RedSn0w release was Mac only. You can download RedSnow 0.9.9b6 to jailbreak iOS 5 from the links below…
RedSn0w 0.9.9b6 not only jailbreaks iOS 5, it also lets you preserve iPhone4/3GS baseband for UltraSn0w or Gevey SIM unlocking. You can also flash iPhone 3GS with Baseband 06.15.00, the iPad baseband.
- Here’s what’s new in this RedSn0w release:
“We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode. It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).”
