Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 has been released to jailbreak iOS 5 beta on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 is a tethered jailbreak tool which simply. Apparently no untethered jailbreak solution is coming before Apple released the final version of iOS 5. Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 works only on the Mac right now.

Following are the devices it supports:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

Ultrasn0w Unlockers:

UNLOCKERS AND THOSE PRESERVING THEIR UNLOCKABLE BASEBANDS SHOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS! You will very likely lose your unlockable baseband if you try to install iOS 5.

IF YOU HAVE THE 06.15 BASEBAND ON YOUR 3GS…this redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error you’ll get when using the stock IPSW (nobody other than those with the 06.15 baseband should be going anywhere near the stock IPSW!).

Thats it for the news part. Those of you who are interested to jailbreak iOS 5 beta can follow the below details:
