iPhone Dev Team has moments ago released a newer version of RedsnOw the 0.9.9b6. This latest version finally brings support to Windows platform. Also a major Location Services issue has also been fixed for the iPhone 3GS which are running on iPad 06.15 baseband.
Just moments after the Final Version of the iOS 5 was released to public we has reported our readers about the RedsnOw 0.9.9b5 which can be used to apply Tethered Jailbreak to their iOS 5 device. Just after a week the iPhone Dev Team has now extended the support to Windows users as well.
For iPhone 3GS users who are running on iPad’s 06.15 Baseband can now fix the Location Issue using this new version. This is actually a graphical and a functional fix for the iPhone 3GS users who earlier used to experience network crash when using Location Services in iOS 5.
From the iPhone Dev-Team:
We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.
It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).
The Jailbreak for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running on iOS 5 is currently limited to Tethered only. This means that whenever you boot your device you will have to connect to a computer with RedsnOw installed to be able to boot into the Jailbroken Mode. According to the iPhone Dev Team the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is already covered. Be the first to know about it and keep visiting GeekPrison.Com.
