Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 Download Available

Jan 10, 2011 - 34 Comments

redsn0w 0-9-7b6 Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 is now available to download as the sixth beta in the iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak public test program. This release fixes bugs that prevented Skype from functioning properly.

The Dev Team notes that Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 can be run on top of existing 0.9.7b5 jailbreaks, and if you’re only looking to repair Skype functionality over beta 5 then all you need to do is run redsn0w and deselect every checkbox. If you missed beta 5, then you’ll find that Bluetooth support is now included and working as intended.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.7b6

  • Download now (Mac OS X)
  • Download now (Windows version unavailable)

The release is currently limited to Mac users but the Dev Team reports they are actively working on improving the Windows version, although there was no timeline given.

      where the hell is the windows version… all this bull chat … no greanpoison rc 5 and no redsnow for windows – go suck off …. slow crap…. this is not rocket science.

      • mr m says:

        get a real computer and invest in a mac then. your a fool the compunity is doing an amazing job using the native hardware for an APPLE iphone, an apple computer.

        • Josh says:

          Enjoy your one button, no decent games computer.

          • Hood says:

            I’m fine playing games like Bioshock from the Mac App Store. And we you can use two fingers to do a right click. Or if you’re a huge gaming nerd that needs more buttons you can use a mouse with more than one button. In fact you just plug it in and IT WORKS. No need to wait for it to download something. It just works like that. Amazingly simple, very efficient, and much nicer than on my Windows computers.

      • Matt says:

        Or just appreciate the work these developers do for nothing, no cash reward, for YOUR benefit.

        But idiots like you can’t see that. It’s an inconvenience when these developers don’t work at light speed and don’t provide you with a jailbreak isn’t it.

        Jailbreaking is a priviledge, try and treat it like that.

        Now go pop all your toys back in the pram and join them. It’s warm and cozy in there. The big bad world can’t get you from in there.

      • NotMe says:

        As a windows user who still doesn’t really like macs (but has to work on fixing my wifes) I have to say..

        You my friend are a complete dick…with probably a very small one surrounded by no hair

        Be appreciative that people are working for free to improve on something

        Maybe you’ll change when you reach puberty

  2. Jared says:

    Anyone know when a untethered jailbreak will be released for the new boot rom 3gs?

  3. Joey says:

    Any ideas if this can be used for the Apple TV 2?

    • Parakeet says:

      Use Seas0nPass for AppleTV2 it is much better and does everything for you including downloading the IPSW and creating a custom file.

      It’s arguably the best jailbreak experience out there, it’s how *all* jailbreaks should be, great UI, easy to use, etc.

  4. nong says:

    what version of iphone OS (IPSW file) that you recommend for jailbreak with iphone 3GS? and where i find it?

    • Parakeet says:

      If you don’t need to unlock you can just use standard iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for iPhone 3GS

      You only need to use a different IPSW if you want to unlock the carrier
