Dev Team frontman MuscleNerd made an interesting comment on Twitter today about the future of PwnageTool and RedSn0w for iOS 5.
Both jailbreak tools will be essentially merged together for an upcoming iOS 5 jailbreak. PwnageTool has been a Mac-only jailbreak tool for years that allows iPhone users to preserve their basebands. A future version of RedSn0w will let users create custom IPSW files to preserve the iPhone’s baseband as well… Read More

If you checked out our RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 video walkthrough, you saw for yourself how much of a drastic change the latest version is.
One of the most compelling features added to the new RedSn0w, is the ability to ‘stitch’ your SHSH blobs to their corresponding firmwares. This makes it so that you have a self contained means of downgrading firmware, well after it stops being signed by Apple.
Even better, is the fact that it’s completely standalone, meaning you won’t have to do any trickery in order to get iTunes to let you downgrade. By stitching an SHSH blob to a firmware file, iTunes is none the wiser.
Check out our full tutorial and video walkthrough of this incredibly handy new feature… Read More

As we previously reported, RedSn0w received a massive update with its 0.9.9b1 iteration, released a few days ago.
This latest version of RedSn0w is a huge step in the right direction for the iPhone Dev Team, as it includes features like firmware fetching and caching, auto-detection from DFU mode, and SHSH blob management.
We’re very excited about the future of RedSn0w, but admittedly, all of the new fangled features can be a bit confusing. For this reason, we’ve created a brief video walkthrough that touches on some of the new areas of RedSnow… Read More

As we near the public launch of iOS 5, many jailbreakers are wondering what the future holds. It was originally thought that Apple was out to kill jailbreaking in iOS 5, and many became even more worried when famed hacker Comex announced that he had been hired by Apple. Was the end drawing near?
We can all rest assured that jailbreaking is alive and well. And after months of there being no untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 or the last two releases of iOS 4, the Chronic-Dev Team has said that it is “actively working” on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5… Read More
