The iPhone Dev Team have released an enhanced version of the Redsn0w software that was released last month that let users of iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on their devices. The new Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 is capable of jailbreak all the iOS devices including iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and the iPad. The Dev team writes,
In the meantime, we’ve also incorporated the limera1n exploit into redsn0w. But we’ve added a few extras:
- custom bootlogos for iPhone3G/iPhone3GS/iPod2G users (with qualifying bootroms)
- 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. Even if you’re purely a Windows user, you can get a trusted friend to run PwnageTool over your IPSW to create a custom IPSW. You can now install that custom IPSW on your own Windows box, after you run this redsn0w version.
The latest release is available for both the Windows and Mac platforms and makes use of the very same Limera1n exploit that was used by George Hotz as well as the Chronic Dev team in their jailbreak releases.
