Redsn0w 0.9.7 released

The iPhone Dev Team didn’t take off for Christmas it seems, as the group released a new beta version of Redsn0w, the Mac-only utility to jailbreak any iPad, current-gen iPod touch or iPhone 4 running 4.2.1. Here are the requirements:

  • iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1 and Mac OS X
  • iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with SHSH blobs saved for iOS 4.2 Beta 3.
  • Access to iOS 4.2 Beta 3 firmware file.
  • If you rely on Ultrasn0w unlock, STAY AWAY from this version of Redsn0w.
  • Currently limited to iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G only.

As usual with these types of things, move forward at your own risk. Hit that original link or this one to Redmond Pie for additional details. Known bugs include issues with Bluetooth, multi-tasking and the iPod app on the iPad and iPhone 4. Needless to say, that “beta” tag means business this time around.

That said, if you decide to spend this Boxing Day jailbreaking your iOS device, let us know how it goes in the comments!
