It looks like the Dev Team is working day and night on the RedSn0w untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1. They first released the tool on Sunday but it came with a few major issues. They quickly released a second beta version last night and now they are shipping a third version that supposedly fixes even more bugs.

RedSn0w 0.9.7b3 should fix problems with FaceTime, WinterBoard, and embedded videos in iTunes…

The third beta is now available (testers ONLY please!).  This version extends the fix made in beta2 over to the non-GUI programs too (like the daemons that handle media content).  That should cover things like Facetime, Winterboard themes, and embedded videos in iTunes.  If you had trouble using the usbmuxd in previous betas, please wait until we incorporate that into redsn0w itself (i.e. don’t bother trying this beta3, just wait for the integration).

Even though the jailbreak is getting more and more stable, I want to remind you that it is still in beta, which means you should stay away from it unless you feel very comfortable with the required steps (see our tutorial here).

You may download RedSn0w 0.9.7b3 from our downloads section.

    Im using beta3, and so far so good thus far… Works fairly well, and I’ve encountered no issues thus far… though I’m sure I will eventually.

    thank you

    • We don’t know. No one knows at this time.

  • Daggre

    Works great on iPad 4.2.1. Several steps to get it done, and you need a Mac, but yes, it works great. Only issue I’m aware of is that Bluetooth is disabled once you jailbreak. It’s a known issue they said there is some kind of problem with sandboxing and Bluetooth; no additional details I’ve seen.

  • man i just bought i 32gb ipod touch for christmas and im please at the community so far! you guys work fast as hell and dont take names lol! i cant wait to jailbread my ipod! if only other programmers worked this fast lol!

    We’re sorry, but we were unable to locate the page you requested

  • Again what I ment is when you go to the downloads section there is a new one which I do not understand wether is the latest one or not:
    ■RedSn0w 0.9.6 RC7 for mac and windows users. is this ne the latest one or??anybody knows??
    Redsn0w 0.9.7b4 only for mac users?????

  • Telejeesus

    0.9.7b4 is newer than 0.9.6 (WHAT EVER) of course 🙂

  • Telejesus<<I don`t think so Redsn0w 0.0.6 RC7 is the latest one

  • I mean Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC7

  • Telejeesus

    You are right 0.9.6 RC7 is latest release but not the most “advanced” one. It can’t JB untethered iPhone 4 etc..
