Redsn0w 0.9.8b7 Makes Jailbreaking 4.3.5 Easier, and Works on iOS 5 Beta 7
For those that follow along with all the jailbreak stuff and rely on third party Cydia tweaks, the iPhone Dev Team has released redsn0w 0.9.8b7 which is aimed at making the existing iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak easier, but also adding support for jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 6 and beta 7.
What’s the advantage to using redsn0w 0.9.8b7? For 4.3.5 users, you can now perform a tethered jailbreak simply by pointing at the iOS 4.3.5 IPSW rather than 4.3.4. Other than that, the incremental release is primarily aimed at iOS and Cydia devs who are looking to update their apps and tweaks for the latest iOS 5 beta, and the latest beta 7 users still need to point at beta 6 IPSW.
If you’re already jailbroken there isn’t any reason to use this version of redsn0w over past versions.

Not much else has changed with the new release, and the jailbreak is tethered, meaning you need to connect the iOS device to a computer and boot the hardware with the assistance of the application.
