Redsn0w 0.9.8 Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone & iPad Released For Mac


by casey on June 11, 2011

Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 is released by the iPhone Dev Team to jailbreak iOS 5 beta on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Remember Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 is a tethered jailbreak tool which simply means you have to connect your iOS 5 device to a computer when powering it on to make it boot into jailbreak state. Do not expect an untethered version of Redsn0w before Apple releases final version of iOS 5. Also, Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 is capable to work only on the Mac right now. Download links are available below.

Following are the devices it supports:

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

Following is the information provided by iPhone Dev Team. You MUST read it if you are intended to use Redsn0w 0.0.8b1:

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.

THIS JAILBREAK IS INTENDED ONLY FOR DEVELOPERS OF JAILBROKEN APPS! There are just too many broken components (Apple’s official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, Cydia apps, MobileSubstrate apps, etc) for this to be useful to anyone but those truly looking to fix bugs in their iOS 5 jailbroken apps. (Seriously!)

THIS REDSN0W WILL NOT HACTIVATE 5.0b1! You need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past all the new activation screens. PLEASE DON’T PIRATE APPLE SOFTWARE! Only registered devs with Macs can develop iOS applications, and only those people will have legitimate access to the beta IPSWs.

THIS IS A TETHERED JAILBREAK ONLY! No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost. You will need to use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered now” to be able to use many things, including Cydia and Safari. If you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it’s because you didn’t boot tethered.

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!).
