Well that was quick as ever. The always-punctual iPhone Dev Team's already jailbroken (tethered) iOS 5, which has only been live a few hours, for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, and iPod Touch. iOS 5 has been jailbroken since around the time of the initial beta, but this is confirmation for fresh installers.
Want to test out the brand spankin' new Redsn0w 0.9.7 Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 beta that just arrived this wintery weekend? Here's how:
Heads up, developers: The iPhone Dev Team announced this weekend that Redsn0w 0.9.6b3 is now available. The update supports iOS 4.2.1 and will allow developers to bypass Cydia, which was broken in 4.2.1.
Good news for the iPhone 3G owners who are running iOS 4.0.2 and desperately want to jailbreak their devices: The Redsn0w tool will now do just that.
Firmware updates are always alarming for a jailbreaking enthusiast—who knows if it'll ruin all the hard work that's gone into the unlocked device? But iPhone users don't have to worry, since 3.0.1 is no less hackable than 3.0.
If you want to jailbreak your new iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G, and iPod touch 2G, now can get RedSn0w 0.8, and do it easily.
