Today we get a new version of redsn0w from the iphone dev-team. Don't get too excited yet. There is no brand new jailbreak support in this release, but there are certainly lots of interesting new features and some really exciting hints about what is coming in the future! Here's the blurb from the blog:
I can't wait to be able to restore my device using redsn0w without any reliance on iTunes! Potentially great for emergency restores when not at home!Version 0.9.10b7 of redsn0w adds a collection of useful features: It finally implements the corona-A5 jailbreak for iPhone4S and iPad2 devices still at 5.0.1. It can also re-install that jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether. When stitching an IPSW, it can now grab your blobs directly from Cydia. It now shows a lot more info about your device (for instance, whether your iPhone3G has the vulnerable baseband boot loader, or whether your iPhone3GS has the old exploitable bootrom. (And the next new feature to be added will be built-in restore support, to provide an alternative to iTunes restores.)
Whilst there is no news of the 5.1 untether, stay tuned to the forum for news as and when it becomes public. Don't forget our 2 official threads:
