Popular jailbreak tool Redsn0w - compiled by the iPhone Dev Team - has just been updated with full support for iOS 5.1.1. You may have caught our tutorial, which detailed how one could jailbreak their device tethered using Redsn0w, although since it was a pre-iOS 5.1.1 release, users needed to "point" the tool to the older firmware.
The iPhone Dev Team has released the updated version of their Redsn0w tool which was teased a while back on Twitter by MuscleNerd. The update as you’d expect is a very significant one, and brings with it the support for downgrading the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the new 3rd-gen iPad to an earlier version of iOS 5 from iOS 5.1.1.
Weekends are usually slow with regards to tech news, but those interested in unlocking their iPhones have been pleasantly surprised with the revelation that all basebands and firmware versions can be carrier unlocked - provided of course that said device is jailbroken.
While the jailbreak loving world has been waiting patiently for the next iOS jailbreak, and have their eyes firmly fixed on any updated regarding it from Pod2g, the iPhone Dev Team have been hard at work as usual implementing additional features and updates to their popular Redsn0w jailbreak tool.
Up until his recent return to the jailbreak scene, you had to go back to August 2010 to see any sign of public activity from legendary coder PlanetBeing. With French security researcher Pod2g having some issues with Apples sandbox, PlanetBeing stepped in to become a part of the jailbreak Dream Team, and in doing so brought himself back into the public eye and out of the wilderness.
It has been nearly eight weeks since the first declaration by pod2g that he had found a bug that he believed could provide an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. We find ourselves exactly fifty days down the line, and what I imagine has been a lot of sleepless nights for the developers involved, but we now officially have the release of an untethered jailbreak for all A4 devices running iOS 5.0.1.
The next version of popular jailbreak tool Redsn0w will be able to use iOS 5 SHSH blobs, Redmond Pie has learned. Details are given after the jump.
