George Hotz (aka geohot) has confirmed via his twitter account today that his blackra1n and blacksn0w tools are currently not compatible with the latest iPhone 3.1.3 firmware. This new firmware brings 05.12.01 baseband for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G which restricts jailbreaking and unlocking on newer devices.
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.
The final version of sn0wbreeze is now available for download. For those of you who don’t know, Sn0wbreeze is yet another jailbreaking tool like blackra1n, redsn0w and PwnageTool for iPhone and iPod touch which can be used to create custom .ipsw files. But unlike the PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze is fully compatible to work with Windows 7/Vista and XP machines.
