The final version of redsn0w 0.9 is now available for download. For those of you who don’t know, Redsn0w is an alternative jailbreaking tool to blackra1n for both Windows and Mac. It also enables users to personalize iPhone firmwares with customized boot and recovery logos without having to use iTunes as there are no custom IPSW files involved. If other jailbreaking tools such as blackra1n, PwnageTool and sn0wbreeze didn’t work for you, you can always give redsn0w a try to see if it solves all your problems.
New to this final release is added support for 3rd-generation iPod touch and IPCC tethering. Redsn0w supports jailbreaking on iPhone 2G/3G/3GS and iPod touch 1G, 2G and 3G. Instructions for jailbreaking using redsn0w are exactly similar to the beta release, which was released earlier this month. Follow the complete step by step guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone and iPod touch using redsn0w.
NOTE: Late models of iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 2G and iPod touch 3G are all restricted to “tethered” rebooting. That means you need to connect your device to a computer to complete the boot after a reset. Also, these devices cannot have custom logos.
