Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 Download Available
Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 has been released for download for both Mac OS X and Windows. Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 is of particular interest to unlockers who experienced battery drain and the disabling of push notifications after unlocking with the previous version of redsn0w.
The new redsn0w includes the ability to enable a “Deactivate” option that removes previously installed patches on an unlocked iPhone, and instead allows you to use a new tool called “Subscriber Artificial Module” or SAM for short. SAM will perform a pseudo-official activation on an iPhone without a stock SIM, and it then tricks your unlocked iPhone and iTunes into sending legitimate activation tickets which returns the usage of push notifications. SAM should also provide a significant boost to your unlocked iPhone 3GS or 3G battery life.
