If you have jail broken your iOS device in the past, or are considering taking the step, then this post will make you happy. The iphone Dev-Team has released the latest version of redsn0w (0.9.6b2), allowing you to jailbreak your iOS 4.1 device (iPhone 4 / 3GS, iPad, 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch and 2nd generation Apple TV) into the land of the free.
The tool is available for both Mac OS X and Windows, this build takes advantage of geohot’s recent limera1n exploit, which is the same one as the one used by greenpois0n and PwnageTool.
The Dev-Team has also incorporated two additional extras to this build. Firstly, “…custom bootlogos for iPhone3G/iPhone3GS/iPod2G users (with qualifying bootroms).” And secondly, “an option that implements the ‘DFU’ button in PwnageTool. This button (which you can use from Windows) lets you prepare your device for a custom DFU.
For the download and further details, check out the Dev-Team’s announcement post.
If you’ve already taken the jump and jail-broken your iOS device, then leave us a comment and let us know how it’s working.
