Another day, another update from the hard workers on the Dev Team. Right after releasing RedSn0w 0.9.7b5, they’ve turned around and released RedSn0w 0.9.7b6. The good news about this latest beta is that it fixes the issues with Skype, which made the app crash as soon as you tried to open it.

Now that the Bluetooth issues have been fixed, and Skype has been fixed, what’s next for The Dev Team’s untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.2.1?

One of the things that they are surely concentrating on is providing better support for Windows users. As you may already be aware of, the majority of the beta releases have been geared towards OS X due to speed issues plaguing the Windows solution.

The nice thing about this latest beta is that it doesn’t require a clean install if you’re already running beta 5; simply run the latest RedSn0w jailbreak on top of your current install, and it should work fine.

It looks like the Dev Team is quickly stamping out all of the issues with RedSnow 0.9.7b, hopefully an official release won’t be too far behind. You can of course download RedSn0w 0.9.7b6 in our downloads section.

Now that Skype is fixed, are you planning on going the untethered route?

    If there is speed issues with windows I’ll still give it ago .. I can get my 4.2b3 ipsw. For a 3GS just let me have a go

  • MALdito

    Hey, how about we get one that fixes the “unable to use on a PC” issue, huh? Nah, just kiddin’, lol! Thanks for all your hard work Dev Team.

  • Chris

    bluetooh is still broke this option is greyed out still

  • IndiePhoenix

    One great thing would be adding support for the new basebands or crearing a baseband downgrade tool! But I can only be thankful for their hard work until now! The Dev TeM ftw!

  • daniel

    Tethered ain’t shiny… Need a pc for booting is bad for me…
    I mess with my iDevice too much and not always I bring my laptop…

    • jkfdb

      You should buy Sony Vaio P Series for 900 bucks. 8″ and fits(almost) in your pocket

  • rebo

    Not ’til all the issues are fixed. Ver. 4.2.1 doesn’t seem to offer much over 4.1 anyway. But thanks for all your efforts, Dev Team!!!

  • Jason masters

    So will this work for iPad 4.2.1? Untethered??? Is this real is this true ??

  • DomPerignon

    Now, the only thing left is the untethered GreenPois0n or RedSn0w.

    I wish I would have a grandson who could be one of the DevTeam. No chance now for my children as they are nurses and engineer. I always praise people like the DevTeam in doing good for others even if their work is viewed as wrongful. I wish them all good health and wealth. Thanks.

    Another breakthrough from the Dev Team. Thanks for making our lives more pleasant.

  • Ricardodelsidney

    Which one will be first to offer the simple, untethered, one-swip to jailbreak an iPhone 4 running 4.2.1, GreenPois0n or RedSn0w?

    • jkfdb

      Greenpois0n dude. Redsn0w was made for experienced users

  • dave

    probably greenpois0n, i’ve never thought much of redsn0w.

  • Burge

    I hope you read this Seb …there is a slight problem with this new web app . When you click publish it comes up with a warning sign. But if you close the web app and reopen it you see that the post that you were trying to put up has been put up. But because if the waning sign you try and change what you typed and you try again .. Just like @Cef has done (above) what’s are we doing wrong ?

  • Disappointed

    Dam, Am i going to have to go out and get a mac??

    I dont care about skype, its not like im using an ipod, i have an iphone, i dont need skype to call people, Lets just release the jailbreak already. it can be a use at your own risk, Im just sick of being worried about my phone turning off when im not at home. I was out of town last weekend and my phone went dead, Then my phone was usless all week because i wasnt home to tether jailbreak my phone, and it wouldn’t start unjailbroken, but as soon as i got home to my computer to boot my phone tethered All was good. I cant drag my laptop all over the place just to theater-jailbreak my phone when i need to restart it.

    Pleas release something soon!!!!!!! I dont wanna have to go five finger discount someones mac book so i can jailbreak unteatherd!! looks like im going to have to keep my eyes open for an un attended mac book. it would be nice to have one anyways.

  • Fahim

    Pleas release something soon!!!!!!! no more beta pls or at least give us a approximate date

  • zuzijo

    woohoo ….. got fed up with waiting so took the plunge …. 4.2.1 untethered iPad and a very happy iBunny!! One thing though Sebastien, it would help if there were clear instructions for everyone which would make it a lot less painful …. took me hours to find the B3 ipsw file (not rar files) also instructions here for the untethered jailbreak are for beta1 …. its beta 6 now and you don’t have to download or do any of the complicated ssh stuff!!
    3 simple steps:
    1. Download all your necessary files, all b3 files are here as ipsw or torrents: http://download.imodzone.net/
    2. Jailbreak using Redsnow 0.9.6RC8
    3. Jailbreak using Redsnow 0.9.7b6

    Just wondering, could I re-use the beta image that is on your blog? Is the image public-domain?
