One collective that is sure to look out for the jailbreak community is the iPhone Dev-Team which is led by the world-famous MuscleNerd. There is not much happening in the jailbreak front lately, which can be attributed to the fact that iOS 6 is still quite new. If you wish to jailbreak iOS 6 on your iOS device, then you will have to settle with a tethered jailbreak. On top of that, it is only applicable for those who are rocking A4-based devices. On a related note, the iPhone Dev-Tem just released an updated version of Redsn0w. Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 can now be downloaded for Mac OS X and Windows. Read more details after the jump.
So what sort of goodies can you expect with the latest version of Redsn0w? Well, Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 is quite a minor update but those who will be getting the newer Apple tablets are in for a treat, but more on that later. If you are experiencing “Error 2601? error messages while using the Restore button with the previous version of Redsn0w, then you will be glad to know that it has been addressed in version 0.9.15b3. In addition, Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 also fixes a related iTunes error 14 when using stitched files in Windows. The iPhone Dev-Team also warns that if you are depending on a baseband unlock, then you are better off using Redsn0w's native Restore rather than a stitched firmware.
From Dev-Team Blog:
Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w “error 2601” that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button. It also fixes a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files. Note that if you have a baseband, you should probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).
As mentioned before, Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 also brings support for the latest Apple tablets, the iPad and iPad mini. But before you get all too excited, nope they can't be jailbroken yet but Redsn0w can now be used to save your iOS 6.0 blobs off to Cydia. Just connect the device into your computer, launch Redsn0w > Extras > SHSH Blobs > New and point it to the iOS 6.0 IPSW.
On top of the Redsn0w update, the Dev-Team is also said to be working to update Ultrasn0w so that it will be compatible with iOS 6. However, the update will most likely be for the sake of compatibility, so don't expect Ultrasn0w will support all-new basebands soon.
