Hot on the heels of the release of RedSn0w 0.9.9b9 and UltraSn0w 1.2.5, the Dev Team was quick at fixing a bug that affected iPhone 3GS owners with older bootrom. This fix comes with RedSn0w 0.9.9b9d which was released earlier today.

If you have an iPhone 3GS with older bootrom and used RedSn0w 0.9.9b9, you can simply run this new version of RedSn0w on top of it…

iPhone3GS owners in our comments section below noticed a problem with the untethered jailbreak available for the old-bootrom 3GS. We’ve corrected that problem in 0.9.9b9d. If you have an old-bootrom 3GS and have already used last night’s redsn0w on it, you can re-run it again without losing anything. Just use this new version, go to Extras->IPSW and manually select the 5.0.1 IPSW, then go back and Jailbreak it again (but you can uncheck Cydia because it’s already installed).

You can find RedSn0w 0.9.9b9d from our downloads section. We also have a comprehensive RedSn0w tutorial, and of course, our dedicated RedSn0w page where you’ll learn just about everything you need about RedSn0w.

  • Don’t you mean tethered

    • It’s untethered for the old-bootrom 3GS, with the 24kpwn exploit.

    • No, it’s untethered for iPhone 3GS owners with older bootrom

  • Ah only untethered for old bootrom. Almost ran to the computer there xD

  • Dan

    Hopefully the release the untethered for the rest of us soon instead of always telling us its almost ready

  • How do I know if I have an older or newer boot room?

  • Taniya Ali

    Do i hv to rejinstall all the cydia nd cracked apps tweaks nd stuff after running untethered jailbreak if i already on tethered jailbreak?

    • If your jailbreaks tethered than this will not untether your jailbreak..it’s for the old bootrom 3GS owners

      • Taniya Ali

        Im asking in advance wenever proper untethered jailbreak will release fr all the devices.

      • When it comes out…it might not be redsnow …if it was me I would not run over the top.. But the last few jailbreaks you have been able to do just this..best to wait and see what’s posted on here..

    Hi, iPhone 3GS (new boot rom), iOS 5.0.1 (9A405), Jailbroken, 06.15.00 Baseband. Ultrasn0w 1.2.5 does NOT unlock correctly. It installs, reboots springboard but cannot find a carrier. Anyone else have this challenge?

  • My Iphone run with version 4.2.1 , firmware 05.15.04 , can i upgrade to 5.0.1& make jailbreak with redsnow?

    UPDATE: Found the solution a few days ago. When Jailbreaking for iOS 4.3.3 I installed the 06.15.00 Baseband. This needed to be reinstalled for iOS 5.0.1. Reinstalled, turned it off, booted tethered and everything is working correctly. Thanks for your help!

      Will you please help in unlocking iPhone 3gs 6.15.0 bb new boot rom currently on iOS 4.1 wanted to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak and unlock, tried it but unable to unlock with ultrasn0w.

      reason for iOS 5.0.1 is the blobs saved for this device.
      looking for your reply.

    People previously bashing since it’s Apple. How is this any distinctive from the upgrade applications every provider is operating? Oh that is proper, you get an revealed telephone that’s included in AppleCare.

    It honestly makes sense. They’re trying to balance out the interviews to get a larger viewing base. A lot of conservatives that may be hesitant about the show based on his past with the Colbert Report will watch for Jeb Bush. Everyone else will watch because it’s Colbert and he’s awesome.
