iOS 5 Beta Tethered Redsn0w Jailbreak Now Available

As reported by Musclenerd via Twitter, the first beta of the redsn0w jailbreak tool is now available to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 (Apple developer account required for iOS 5 beta).

redsn0w jailbreak for iOS5 beta released: … Mac devs only (please don’t pirate Apple software!)

The jailbreak tool is a Mac-only tethered jailbreak, meaning if your device turns off for example, you’ll need to plug it into your Mac to reactive it. The redsn0w beta jailbreak is compatible with the following devices:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

As noted by the Dev Team, the jailbreak is intended for developers of jailbroken apps, and if you require an unlock, to stay away from iOS 5 and redsn0w for now.
