Update: iOS 5 Beta 6 is Not Jailbreak Safe

Apple seeded beta number 6 of iOS 5 to developers today. And while some folks are rushing out to download the new software, others are waiting for word on if and when it will be jailbroken.

Apple released iOS 5 Beta 3 yesterday, and it was quickly confirmed that you could jailbreak Apple’s newest beta build with last month’s version of the popular jailbreaking tool, RedSn0w.

Apple seeded the 2nd beta of their iOS 5 software to developers last Friday. As typical of any new iOS firmware release, we have been asked if the new update can be jailbroken and unlocked.

Sn0wBreeze Developer to Announce Mystery Project this Week

It appears that jailbreak developer iH8sn0w has been causing some commotion in the Twitter world over the weekend. The 16 year-old iPhone hacker has made quite a name for himself in the community over the past few years, and it doesn’t look like he’s slowing down anytime soon.

iOS 4.3.3 Jailbreak Tools Updated to Address iPhone Vibration Issue

The iPhone Dev Team has just pushed out an update to its Redsn0w and PwnageTool jailbreak utilities for iOS 4.3.3. Redsn0w rc16 and PwnageTool 4.3.3.1 address the side vibration/ringer switch issue for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS owners. The bug is only present on iOS 4.3.3 jailbroken devices.

The bug fix was found by famous iPhone hacker @i0n1c and he doesn’t even have an iPhone. For those of you that have already updated to iOS 4.3.3 and jailbroken your iDevice using redsn0w rc15 or PwnageTool 4.3.3, you can install this fix simply by running redsn0w rc16 over your existing 4.3.3 jailbreak. Just uncheck the “Install Cydia” option and check any other options you want. Simple as that… 

Everything You Need to Know About iOS 4.3.3 Jailbreak

Apple released iOS 4.3.3 (4.2.8 for Verizon iPhones) last Wednesday, less than three weeks after the previous software update. The new firmware included a fix for the location tracking file that Apple has gotten into so much water over (is that considered Cider?).

Chances are, most of you didn’t consider 4.3.3 big enough to update from 4.3.2. But with the Verizon iPad 2 problem fixed and the infamous tracking bug patched, we may not see another update until iOS 5 is released. If that’s the case, then this will likely be the last jailbreak for several months, so why not update?

As we reported earlier, the jailbreak software has joined the iOS 4.3.3 party, courtesy of i0n1c’s untether.

Although generally mentioned last when discussing jailbreak options, Sn0wbreeze  is still a good choice for jailbreakers looking to hack their iDevices with ease. It’s especially useful for folks with Verizon iPhones, as the software created by iH8sn0w is currently the only way to jailbreak 4.2.8…
