redsn0w 0.9.5 beta jailbreak

MuscleNerd announced a few minutes ago on Twitter that the Dev Team is releasing the first public jailbreak for iPhone OS 4.0 beta 1. This beta release comes roughly a week after the Dev Team jailbroke iPhone OS 4.

Although new, this jailbreak uses same pwnage2 DFU exploit that’s been out for a few years so nothing major has been revealed to Apple.

This beta release of RedSn0w is not for the general public but is targeted at iPhone developers of jailbreak apps to allow them to fix their software before the official release of iPhone OS 4.

In short, if you’re an average iPhone user, you should stay clear from this jailbreak.

RedSn0w 0.9.5 beta currently supports the iPhone 3G only and only works on Mac OSX, since jailbreak apps are developed on this platform.

For more information as well as directions on how to use the beta RedSn0w 0.9.5 to jailbreak the iPhone 4.0 beta 1, check out the Dev Team wiki.

Note that this jailbreak is for iPhone OS 4 beta 1 only. It will not jailbreak or unlock any other firmware.

    Why thanks for releasing the jailbreak for 4.0. Now how about the one for the firmware that was release before this. ie 3.1.3.

  • Miguel

    The download link for that BETA is on Dev wiki page.. So why telling people that it’s restrict, if it is free and available to all… And even says how to correct some bugs of Cydia app…

    I have the possibility to install it, the os4 and the jailbreak, but I think we should wait for further secure way, or release.

  • That’s great but what about unlocking iPhone 3.1.3 bb 5.12.01 ?

  • Yasser

    Yeah I think a lot more people care about the 3.1.3 JB. I thought it was already done, why wont they release it? I guess the Dev teams attention just shifted when OS4 Beta got released.

  • We con say that we won’t unlock 3.1.3 bb 5.12.01 if they release unlock for iphone os work on new firmware.

  • iPhone 3GS

    You 3.1.3 whiners just don’t get it, do you? 4.0 beta has a newer baseband, 5.13, and this baseband will likely change before the 4.0 gold master is released. The Dev Team is saving their unlock for the official 4.0 gold master baseband. If the Dev Team were to release their unlock now, Apple will – WILL – patch it before 4.0 gold master is released. Same thing goes for the new jailbreaking techniques as well. Just be patient. 4.0 is just around the corner.

    PS – STOP BEING STUPID AND UPDATING YOUR IPHONE AT THE FIRST SITE OF AN UPDATE. YOUR LACK OF PATIENCE (OR COMPLETE IGNORANCE) IS WHAT GOT YOU IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE. WHEN YOU RELY ON UNLOCKS, YOU HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS ABOUT UPDATING AND READ UP ON THE PROPER TECHNIQUES TO SAFELY GO ABOUT UPDATING SO YOU CAN PRESERVE YOUR PRECIOUS UNLOCK.

    Er message above.

    1) yes it may have a new baseband but they have already unlocked it. I can understand waiting till the ipad was released worldwide, but then this has been put back because of the known jb and will be patched

    2) I did not update my phone. My phone lost it’s operating system when I got two calls whilst I was already on another call. I had the no network message for 5 hours, turned it on and off then was told I was in recovery mode.

    3) Not all of us must be as good as you, but maybe when you get off your high horse, maybe you will see that the massive wait for this would be really bad if you did not have the jb. The phrase ” you never know what you have until it has gone ” has never been so true.

    Now I see via Twitter that Thunderst0rm say they are releasing their jb next Friday so the wait may be over

  • Lollok

    I got it off eBay and it was already in 3.1.3.
    Anyway, when is 4.0 coming out
    I hv been waiting since march.

  • David

    Os 4 will come out with the new iPhone, so around July. I have had 3.1.3 since feb. The iPhone is really a smartphone without jb. My nokia 95 had the same functionality

  • Azmir

    For 3.1.3 jb. Search google spirit jailbreak .
    Have fun!

  • Ifreak

    iOS 4 will be released on June 21, but the iPhone will be available for pre-order on June 15 and delivery on June 24…… The jailbreak for the iOS 4 will be released on June 21 sa,e as the release date of the firmware itself……
    Hope this helped!!
