Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 Download Released to Jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1

Jun 10, 2011 - 11 Comments

Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 Jailbreak for iOS 5 beta 1 Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 was just released to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 on the following hardware: iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, iPad 1, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 GSM, iPhone 4 CDMA. This jailbreak is tethered, meaning you will need to connect it to your computer on each reboot.

Important notes about this version of Redsn0w:

  • Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 does not “hacktivate” iOS 5 beta 1, thus you are still required to have a registered UDID from Apple to use iOS 5 b1
  • Unlockers and anyone with preserved unlockable baseband need to stay away from this and iOS 5 beta, you will lose your unlockable baseband if you update
  • This version of redsn0w is intended for jailbreak developers only, the Dev Team reminds us that there are many broken components in the jailbroken iOS 5 beta so this is purely an experimental release intended for devs of Cydia apps to test compatibility on the new iOS – this is not for wide consumption

If you are comfortable with all of these limitations, proceed.

This version of redsn0w is available for Mac and Windows users:

The iPhone Dev Team suggests this version of redsn0w will continue to work to jailbreak upcoming iOS 5 betas assuming you save your b1 IPSW and point it at that file when jailbreaking, so they recommend preserving your 5b1 IPSW files for future use.

If you’re brave and don’t mind losing some essential features of your phone, you can install iOS 5 beta on an iPhone without a dev account or UDID activation by utilizing a bug in Voice Over, but this is not a recommended method, and there is no word on compatibility with this version of redsn0w.

    I see no reason to JB anymore. iOS 5 matches the features I used to jailbreak for (notifications on lock screen) and tethering through MyWi is no longer an option. I know this won’t be popular to say but I think jailbreaking is dead.

      je pense pas et je suis pratiquement sur qui il y aura toujours la possibilité de jailbreaik débloquer son téléphone iPhone toutes catégories pour la simple raison que si le jailbreaik disparaissait et il y aura une baisse de l’achat du iPhone puisque c’est l’un des points forts de l’achat du iPhone par les utilisateurs en tout cas pour moi c’est ce qu’il fait que j’ai toujours acheté le téléphone. si cydia disparaîtraient je ne verrai pas l’utilisation qui pourrait motiver l’achat du iPhone en Europe plus que beaucoup d’application coûterait trop chers et surtout que l’utilité du iPhone n’a pas les désavantages qu’on les américain.

    I don’t think JB is completely dead. Apple still can’t manage something like SBSettings which is the biggest reason to JB for me and lots of people.

    These work:

    iFile
    CyDelete
    OpenSSH
    iSHSHit

    These do not work:

    MobileSubstrate
    Springtomize
    PhotoMail
    ActionMenu
    Celeste
    BiteSMS
    WinterBoard

  5. […] allow third party widgets, you can bet the jailbreak scene will handle it. Considering a jailbreak for iOS 5b1 is already out, it might not be long before this […]
