Update 1: 0.9.6rc11 just released right after rc10.
redsn0w_0.9.6rc11: (rc11 makes the boot animation a bit more robust across all devices)
The iPhone Dev Team just released redsn0w 0.9.6rc10, an update for both Mac and Windows. This new version brings the ability for boot animations, and removes some settings. You can just run this latest version of redsn0w over your existing jailbreak (just unselect the ‘Install Cydia’ option). Follow our redsn0w tutorial here.
Those running redsn0w may have noticed we enabled too many Settings options in some versions of the jailbreak (for instance, what you want your side switch to do, even if you have no side switch because youâ€™re not using an iPad). Release rc10 of redsn0w corrects that (you can just run it over your existing jailbreakâ€¦be sure to de-select Cydia to avoid package conflicts).
Along the way, weâ€™ve also added the option to enable boot animationsâ€¦these animations can be installed via Cydia, but be sure to select which animation to use via the Settings->Bootlogo setting after youâ€™ve downloaded an animation (and again, you can just run rc10 over your existing jailbreakâ€¦be sure to de-select Cydia to avoid package conflicts).
(The boot animation we tested against was â€œAndroid Boot Logoâ€. It correctly installs all the dependencies needed to run the animation at each boot).
