Earlier this week, the Dev Team released a major update to its RedSn0w jailbreak utility. The update included a new option for SAM unlockers, that allowed them to restore their activation tickets, and other improvements.

Today’s update, however, is a much smaller release. RedSn0w 0.9.12b2 just surfaced on the Dev Team’s website, featuring a new rocky-racoon injection option and an iBooks bug fix. Keep reading for the full change log…

“Update #1: Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method, ro the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their device that would create very large backups, and it’s required for those with unactivated iPhones). If you’ll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane. It also fixes an iBooks issue an old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.”

If you are already jailbroken, there doesn’t appear to be any reason to re-jailbreak using this new version. Unless, of course, you’re one of the folks experiencing the iBooks issue on your 3GS.

At any rate, you can find the latest version of RedSn0w on our Downloads page. And we have a great step-by-step tutorial on how to use it.
