Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 is out with improvements and bug fixes

The Dev Team has updated its popular jailbreak utility RedSn0w today, bringing the software to version 0.9.15b3. Although it closely follows Apple’s release of iOS 6.0.1, it doesn’t seem to include any 6.0.1-specific changes.

What it does include, though, are a handful of bug fixes and improvements that should make the jailbreaking process much smoother. We’ve got the full change log after the break…

The iPhone Dev Team introduces new RE-Restore functionality into RedSn0w

Hot on the heels of the iOS 6 official release, the iPhone Dev Team, headline by its most prominent member, MuscleNerd, is making moves as well.

Today they introduce new RE-Restore functionality that will allow users on iOS 5.1.1 to restore their devices to a fresh install iOS 5.1.1. This can come in handy if you ever need a fresh install for whatever reason, i.e. a bad jailbreak install, etc.

For those eligible to use the RE-restore, this means that you never have to worry about losing your 5.1.1 jailbreak, as long as you don’t go near iOS 6. Check inside for the details…

How to jailbreak an iPhone with a broken Home button

Although there have been methods in the past geared towards skirting around a broken Home button in order to jailbreak an iPhone, I don’t remember any of them being as easy as this.

If your Home button is on the fritz, then chances are you have problems getting into DFU mode, which is a prerequisite to using most jailbreak software. Fortunately, the iPhone Dev Team has come up with a simple, yet ingenious method for easily pushing your device into DFU mode using their latest update to the RedSn0w jailbreak tool.

RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 allows you to create a firmware file that will push your device into DFU mode once a normal restore through iTunes is completed. Check out our full tutorial inside for the step-by-step video walkthrough…

RedSn0w 0.9.13dev2 released to fix SSH issues

The iPhone Dev Team quietly released RedSn0w 0.9.13dev2 to address issues with SSH and app crashes that some users were experiencing.

The developer versions of RedSn0w are for developers wishing to jailbreak their iOS 6 beta installations. Since this version of RedSn0w does not install Cydia, SSH access is imperative, hence the fix for the users experiencing difficulties.

RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 released to jailbreak iOS 6 beta

As promised, the iPhone Dev Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 for both Windows and Mac. This latest RedSn0w update is for developers only, as it allows you to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 6.

If you’re not a legitimate developer, it’s advised that you stay away, as there is no Cydia install performed with this jailbreak. The only thing you will have access to is SSH or afc2, which are certainly useful, but you have to know what you’re doing.

iPhone Dev Team to release iOS 6 developer-only jailbreak

Indeed, there will be a jailbreak for iOS 6 in the very near future, but it might not be what you’re expecting. This morning, MuscleNerd announced that the iPhone Dev Team will release an iOS 6 jailbreak “In the spirit of the experimental ecosystem JBers provide”.

With that in mind, the team is releasing a developer only jailbreak for iOS 6. This means that you won’t have access to a pretty interface like Cydia, but you will be provided with SSH access.

MuscleNerd jailbreaks iOS 6 beta

It’s true, MuscleNerd has successfully jailbroken iOS 6 on an iPod Touch 4th generation device. Unfortunately, that jailbreak isn’t publicly available, and in its current form it’s hardly what we’d expect anyway. While it’s been technically jailbroken by the defacto leader of the iPhone Dev Team, essential items like Cydia still lack functionality, and it’s just a tethered jailbreak.

Hence, it’ll probably be a while before we see an official iOS 6 beta jailbreak from the Dev Team. It’s just nice to know that they’ve already started tinkering around with the possibilities…
