The iPhone dev team has just updated the most used jailbreaking tool Redsn0w. The new version is being updated to Redsn0w 0.9.12b2 which brings in not major but some small bug fixes and yes a new Rocky Racoon injection method to jailbreak. It is available for download on the dev team official website, links of which is added below. If you remember then the previous version Redsn0w 0.9.12b1 was released right after some days of Absinthe 2.0 release which was the most awaited tool. I hope that you have used Absinthe to get untethered jailbreak for your device.
Redsn0w 0.9.12b1 also brought the support for Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 including some other features as well. It was capable of storing the SAM Unlock which further can be used for restoration purpose. And now the team has again put up some new codes in and updated it to Redsn0w 0.9.12b2. This new version has been coded to bring new Rocky Racoon injection method. You can read more details about the same below. It comes directly from the iPhone Dev Team.
Update #1: Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their device that would create very large backups, and it’s required for those with unactivated iPhones). If you’ll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane. It also fixes an iBooks issue on old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.
Now as mentioned in the above change log, Redsn0w 0.9.12b2 fixes the issue with iPhone 3GS. Some error messages which were noticed while Jailbreaking or other process is also been fixed in this new update. Now remember this is not necessary to download the tool and re Jailbreak your device if you already have successful Jailbreak on your iDevice. Those who still use the clean iPhone (i.e. Non Jailbroken) and are willing to get Untethered Jailbreak then they can download this tool and do so.
