The iPhone Dev Team has just released a near final version of Redsn0w 0.9.5 for both Windows and Mac. This beta release, like all the previous ones is meant for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G only, running iOS 4 (formerly iPhone OS 4). Apart from multitasking and wallpapers support on iOS 4.0 on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G, this version also brings support to enable battery percentage which otherwise is disabled by Apple.
The latest redsn0w beta lets you individually select whether multitasking and homescreen wallpaper are enabled. It also adds battery percentage and verbose boot mode options. (Verbose boot shows you the kernel messages during boot)
Note: Once you enable battery percentage, you actually toggle it off and on via Settings→General→Usage.
Warning Note: This release is strictly meant for official activated iPhones, if you rely on an unlock, stay away from this release.
Instructions to jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G on iOS 4.0 GM using Redsn0w 0.9.5 as usual are exactly similar to the last release. Please read all the instructions posted here carefully before upgrading and jailbreaking your phone on iOS 4.
