Download 0.9.6b1 : Official

Here is a good news for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G jailbreakers, as the Dev-Team has just released a fresh beta version of redsn0w, version 0.9.6 beta 1, which allows users to jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G on iOS 4.1/4.2, the new redsn0w version uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that was previously used since the 2.x days.

The Dev-Team warned who use ultrasn0w to unlock their devices, to stay awy from Redsn0w, and wait for PwnageTool to support 4.1, that is because to use redsn0w at 4.1, you need to already have updated to official 4.1 from Apple,if you do that you lose the ultrasn0w unlock, possible forever. The release redsn0w is only available for Mac, as the Windows version needs further testing.


This Redsn0w beta release supports:
  • iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G only (for now)
  • Mac OS X x86 only (for now)
  • 4.1 or 4.2 firmware from Apple

Step 1: Download iOS 4.1 for your version of iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2G (download links at the end).
Step 2: Update to this latest firmware using the IPSW file you just downloaded via iTunes 10.
Step 3:  Launch Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 (download links at the end) and Browse for iOS 4.1 Firmware. 
Step 4: Select "Install Cydia" and click on Next
Step 5: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click “Next”.
Step 6: At this stage you will need to put your iPhone in DFU mode by holding “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold “Home” button too. Now after few seconds release “Power” button but keep holding “Home” button until installation begins.
Step 7: You will Get a Jailbroken Device as soon as the process ends.

Note: If you have an unlocked iPhone 3G with ultrasn0w, you have to stay away from Redsn0w, as it updates your baseband to latest version, which is still unlockable till now.
