Many people thought that the future of jailbreaking the iOS 6 is not looking so good as of late. Before, there exists a jailbreak solution but it is only tethered and is only exclusive for A4 devices and below. It does not even install Cydia as the app needs to be installed using a separate procedure. Fortunately, the jailbreak community always has our back and there is always someone who will step up to take the challenge. And that someone is none other than the prominent jailbreak collective iPhone Dev-Team. Earlier this week, RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 was released and it is packed with tons of new features which could certainly make any jailbreak user a happy camper. A quick heads-up, the tool was recently updated. RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 is now available for download.
There are numerous good reasons why Redsn0w is the go-to solution of many folks when it comes to jailbreaking their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. One of the best reasons however is the fact that Redsn0w always gets swift updates which means that if there is a problem with the current build, it can be addressed in a timely manner. Apparently, there are issues to be found with the release of RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 which compelled the iPhone Dev-Team to re-release the tool with an update. The changes itself are quite minimal and mostly concerns some bug fixes for the iPhone 3GS. Check out the complete blog post here.
Version 0.9.15b2 fixes a few issues for 3GS owners: old-bootrom awesomeness is no longer forgotten directly after a restore, and iPad baseband upgrade/downgrade support is fixed (same production date cutoffs apply!). If your 3GS is currently tethered at 6.0 even though you have an old bootrom, just re-run redsn0w’s Jailbreak step (no need to restore). Don’t forget you can add some pizzaz with your own boot logo or a nerdy verbose boot.
As you can see, this is a pretty minor update to the Redsn0w tool. But still, it is always best to use the latest stable version as it can save you the headaches of having to deal with bugs and glitches. Download Redsn0w 0.9.15b2 using the download links provided below. When running the Windows version of the tool, make sure that you run it via Administrator Mode in order to keep errors to a minimum. If you are using OS X Mountain Lion, use Ctrl+Click -> Open in order to use the tool for now. For help on how to jailbreak iOS 6, feel to use our Redsn0w guide.
