The iPhone Dev Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.15b2, which fixes a few items for owners of older devices.
The most outstanding fix is for 3GS owners with old bootroms — RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 brings back untethered jailbreak support for end users who fall into that category.
Most of the changes don’t pertain to owners of newer devices, but it’s always a good idea to ensure that you’re running the latest and greatest version anyway. Take a look inside for the full release notes.
Per the Dev Team’s Blog:
Update #1 (Oct 15): Version 0.9.15b2 fixes a few issues for 3GS owners: old-bootrom awesomeness is no longer forgotten directly after a restore, and iPad baseband upgrade/downgrade support is fixed (same production date cutoffs apply!). If your 3GS is currently tethered at 6.0 even though you have an old bootrom, just re-run redsn0w’s Jailbreak step (no need to restore). Don’t forget you can add some pizzaz with your own boot logo or a nerdy verbose boot.
So basically if you have a tethered jailbreak with an old bootrom 3GS, just re-jailbreak with RedSn0w to gain your untethered back.
