Heads up guys! MuscleNerd has just announced the release of Â RedSn0w 0.9.8b6 “JetBlue Edition” which supports tethered iOS 5 beta 6 jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G and iPad 1. No love for iPad 2 once again since the current Limera1n jailbreak exploit used in both Sn0wbreeze and Redsn0w tools does not work on it. Also, this is a beta developer’s release so proceed with caution!
Following are the official release notes:
We’ve released redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbreak iOS5 beta6 (point it directly at the beta6 IPSW).Â
Two important notes about this version:
(1) Please let your device boot normally to IOS5b6 and do a clean shutdown (slide to power off) before jailbreaking.
(2) Boot logos have intentionally been disabled for now, so you’ll see a black screen on tethered boots (you can re-enable logos or verbose boot with command-line options if you really want them back).
Due increased sensitivity to abrupt filesystem shutdowns in IOS5b6, it’s very important that you do a clean shutdown before running redsn0w.
