Earlier today, the Dev Team released the beta version of their RedSn0w untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 (see our tutorial here). Like we reported, this untethered jailbreak comes with its fair share of issues, one of the most annoying being that some of the native apps would just crash.

While there are still a bunch of bugs to be worked out, the Dev Team updated RedSn0w to version 0.9.7b2, which fixes this issue where native apps like the app switcher or the iPod app would crash…

The second beta is now available (testers ONLY please!).  This version should fix all the native app crashes (including Task switcher).  That’s the only change in from beta1….Bluetooth is still disabled. If you had trouble using the usbmuxd in beta1, please wait until we incorporate that into redsn0w itself (i.e. don’t bother trying this beta2, just wait for the integration).

The Dev Team said it, we said it, and we’ll probably say again until this RedSn0w comes out of beta: stay away from it if you don’t feel comfortable with all the necessary steps.

If you feel a little adventurous and still wants to give this untethered jailbreak a try, you may download RedSn0w 0.9.7b2 from our iPhone downloads section, and use our detailed guide.

As usual, make sure to leave some feedback in the comments section.

    Im stuck on 4.2.1 and desperately need an untethered jailbreak =(

  • ionized

    Where the hell is the unlock no1 cares abt this jailbreak who even cares abt the 4.2.1 update it has nothing to add to its predeccesor ios 4.1 so I suggest the dev team should put their efforts in something usefull rather than waisting our times with this tethered untethered semi super hipty dumpty BS..

  • John

    @ionized unlock your own iPhone then. There’s so many your kind of people out there…
    Be grateful for what the dev team has done for free thus far.

  • ionized

    @John if u tjink dev team is working on the jailbreak with no motives the u r missing the big picture those hackers develop jailbreraks in orderr to allow people to use cydia hence BUY jailbreak apps and guess who has developed those apps ???

  • Fuckuionized

    Hey ionized your a piece of dog crap who doesn’t appreciate dev team efforts to even give you the priveledge of having your iphone unlocked. Pathetic roach complaining, sheesh people like you should get run over by a freight train. Nuf said

  • @ionized..You sir are an idiot.YOU can’t have a unlock without the JB for that FW.Do some reading/research before you opine,unles you like living as a moron.

  • Jandk5507

    Agreed with you all that he needs to do his research. Afterall, some of us are actually happy with att and want an untethered jailbreak for mods and such just as bad as those of you who want to be able to unlock!

    With all of the whit and the what coming and going, can someone tell me what the status is for a 3gs 4.2.1 new bootrom (modem firmware 5.15.04) with respect to jailbreak &/or unlock.
    Thank you

    • Jandk5507

      You can use redsnow .96b4 for a tethered jailbreak for the iphone 3gs 4.2.1

      • Bomber254

        Thank you 4 your prompt reply. Is the team ( or do you know) working on an eventual unlock?

  • @ionized……shut your trailer trash mouth. If you can do better then lets see it. Head back to the bathroom with your meat in your hand and waste your time that way. No one wants to hear a whiny lil girl as dumb as yourself
