Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 Download Available
Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 has been released for download for Mac and Windows. The redsn0w 0.9.6rc series aims to provide a ‘one-click’ tethered boot option to ease the burden of having a tethered jailbreak until the untethered jailbreak of redsn0w 0.9.7 is finalized. This is achieved by passing arguments to the redsn0w application through an editable script file. Once this script is configured with the proper IPSW file and the tethered boot arguments, you can do a one-click launch of that script rather than manually selecting these options in the redsn0w application, making the tethered boot quicker and easier.
The 0.9.6rc8 redsn0w release is relatively minor and offers a few bug fixes from rc7, most significantly that custom tethered boot logo commands will now report if and why an invalid PNG file is attempted.
The arguments for this version are the same as before:
- -j tells redsn0w to “Just boot now tethered for now”
to specify the reference IPSW
- -o for old-bootrom iPod touch 2G and iPhone 3GS only
to specify a custom boot logo png
An example of the Mac OS X command with an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.1 to perform a tethered boot would be the following:
open ~/Desktop/redsn0w.app --args -j -i ~/Desktop/iPhone4,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw
This assumes that redsn0w and your IPSW file are located on your Mac desktop. Check the boot-ipt4g.command file that is included with the redsn0w download for more examples.

Unlike the current untethered beta, this version of redsn0w is available to Mac and Windows users:
Everyone should be using iTunes 10.1 or newer, and Windows users need to run the application through ‘XP Compatibility’ mode to prevent any troubles.
