Redsn0w 0.9.7b2 Download Available
Update 2: Redsn0w 0.9.7b4 download is now available and no longer requires usbmux to jailbreak.
Update: redsn0w 0.9.7b3 has been released and provides further stability, it is recommended to use the latest beta version.
Redsn0w 0.9.7b2 has just been released into the public redsn0w untethered jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 beta test program. The latest beta resolves some significant problems with the first beta, and the iPhone Dev Team says that 0.9.7b2 should resolve all the crashes that were occurring from the prior b1 release. It’s worth mentioning that bluetooth is still disabled, and unlocks are continue to be unsupported. The Dev Team also suggests that if testers had any trouble using usbmuxd with beta1 that they should wait until the software is integrated directly into a coming release of redsn0w itself.

As before, this beta version only works on Mac OS X with an iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G. Windows users as well as those with other iOS hardware will need to wait until a more finalized public release of the untethered jailbreak.
The iPhone Dev Team suggests to try redsn0w 0.9.7b2 only after a fresh restore to limit variables involved in debugging. When running the app, select “Jailbreak Monte” to test out the untethered jailbreak solution.
