Redsn0w, the regularly reliable jailbreaking tool for iPhone and iPod touch users, has just been updated to version 0.9.9b9b, and brings with it a couple of handy finishing touches.
Jailbreaking enthusiasts have been waiting anxiously for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5/5.0.1 and they will be happy to know that it is now closer to release. Details after the jump!
Following up to his untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and demo, pod2g has answered one very important question regarding the jailbreak’s support for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Check out the details after the jump!
The second beta version of Ac1dSn0w is now available for download. The first version had to be removed from distribution due to a legal issues in its coding.
With iOS 5.0.1 having now been made public, attention has swiftly turned to the jailbreak potential. As was the case with iOS 5.0, Sn0wbreeze has been updated to version 2.8b11 to cater for Apple's latest release.
Hot on the heels of the developer release, Apple has just released the first of presumably many updates to iOS 5 – dubbed as iOS 5.0.1 - and just like that, it's jailbroken!
Sn0wbreeze 2.8b10 has just been released to jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 (Beta 1 and Beta 2) on Windows. While the current version of Redsn0w, version 0.9.9b8 for Windows and Mac, can already jailbreak the above mentioned iOS updates, the added advantage of Sn0wbreeze is that it fixes iBooks crashing issue on devices running jailbroken iOS 5.0.x.
We’ve been getting a lot of emails lately about this and so we thought it was a good idea to do a dedicated post on it to answer this question once and for all.
Last week, a new sort of jailbreak for iOS 5 popped up in the form of a Cydia package – named SemiTether – which you could install after performing a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w/Sn0wbreeze. This package, once installed, would allow users to reboot their tethered-jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with limited functionality without having to connect your device to a computer. SemiTether has received a big update today and it is what we’ll be talking about in this post.
The iPad 2, which was released earlier this year, is, from what I can tell, one of the slowest iOS devices to get a jailbreak. So far, it has only been jailbroken on iOS 4.3.3 and there has been no news of an iOS 5 jailbreak… until today, that is. An iPhone Dev-Team member has confirmed that the iPad 2 has been jailbroken on iOS 5 and we’ve got the details after the jump!
