The iPhone Dev Team Member Musclenerd today announced the release of new updated version of RedsnOw 0.9.8b7 which extends support for .ipsw file of iPad 1 G iOS 5 Beta 6.
Currently this is the 7th beta version of the popular Jailbreaking tool RedsnOw. All the features are almost same with just extended support for iPad 1 G iOS Beta 6. Recently Apple updated the IPSW for the first generation of iPad without changing the version number or filename. The reason to which is not known but this made Jailbreaking abit difficult for the iPads. With the release of the new RedsnOw the tool can now handle the old as well as the updated IPSW.
Update #7: Apple updated the iPad1 iOS5b6 IPSW without changing its version number or filename, so we’re releasing redsn0w 0.9.8b7 to handle both the original and changed IPSW. We’ve also added explicit support for a tethered 4.3.5/4.2.10 jailbreak (instead of pointing at the 4.3.4/4.2.9 IPSWs) and fixed a 4.2.10 problem.
The new RedsnOw also has added support for Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5 and 4.2.10. Now users wont have to point RedsnOw to IPSW’s of 4.3.4/4.2.9 instead of the updated files for Jailbreaking.
This is still a tethered Jaibreak for iOS 5 and untethered Jailbreak is still unavailable. An untethered Jailbreak cant be expected until the official release of the iOS 5 this fall along with that there are rumor’s going on of a new iPhone hardware being launched.
Also once you do the Jailbreak you wont be able to do O.T.A updates for the further release of Beta versions of iOS 5. Although you can still do it by downloading the update file but its a bit long process and we can also expect a solution for that from the iPhone Dev Team.
