Popular jailbreak tool from Dev-Team has just received another update today. The latest release i.e Redsn0w 0.9.10b8b, does not introduce any new jailbreak exploits or more devices but rather fixes a few minor compatibility issues with the previous release. You can use Redsn0w 0.9.10b8b to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered on any A4 device i.e iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the original iPad as well as on A5 devices running iOS 5.0.1 i.e iPhone 4S and iPad 2. There is no jailbreak support yet for iOS 5.1, tethered or untethered for A5 devices or the new iPad.
According to the Dev-Team official blog:
The 0.9.10b8b update to redsn0w makes the zip files more compatible with the native Windows explorer (which doesn’t like leading slashes in the filenames).
