RedSn0w Update Released, Jailbreak Becomes Child’s Play

RedSn0w Update Released, Jailbreak Becomes Child’s Play

Jailbreak lovers all over the world, there is some really good news for you all. The new RedSn0w update that I told you about on Saturday has been released by the iPhone dev team. MuscleNerd mentioned that a new update is coming for RedSn0w via his Twitter account and showed the world few images of the new update too. The update has some really nice features such as the ability to automatically jailbreak an iDevice without having to point it to an ipsw firmware file or anything.

RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 was released only a few hours ago, the best jailbreaking tool in the world for iOS devices, makes the whole task of jailbreak super easy. It’s as easy as clicking a button, well, actually it IS just clicking a button. The latest version has a Jailbreak button, click on it with your device connected to your Mac or PC and you should have a jailbroken device in no time. This method will currently work on all iOS firmwares up to 4.3.5, iOS 5 betas are not supported at the moment.

This new update is certainly going to make Jailbreak a Child’s play, as a newbie can perform it without needing any guidance. Everything is clearly laid out and is as simple as pie.

Read the complete change-log and new features below via iPhone Dev Blog:

Update #9:  A bunch of new features!  

  • uses DFU mode to try to automatically determine which device and FW you have
  • fetches pieces of public IPSWs from Apple (once).  Non-public IPSWs must be provided manually (once).  It then caches those pieces for future use.
  • “Just boot” is a tethered boot.  Uses whatever “Preferences” you’ve set for boot logo and kernel boot-args
  • “Pwned DFU” puts your device in a pwned DFU state for some of the iTunes stuff detailed below
  • “Recovery fix” gets past 1015 types of errors (when baseband portion of restore fails).  Should work on iOS5 beta too
  • “Select IPSW” is for picking non-public IPSWs, or overriding auto-detection
  • “SHSH blobs” has a bunch of options…
  • “Fetch” – fetch current PARTIAL blobs on device.  Should complete in under 10 or 15 seconds.  Puts the set of PARTIAL of blobs on your computer as a plist.  Checks if Cydia already has a full set for this device and build.  If not, it submits this PARTIAL set and returns Cydia’s acknowledgement or rejection
  • “Verify”  – cryptographically verifies existing blob files from either redsn0w, TinyUmbrella, or Cydia server.  You can select a whole bunch of blobs to verify at once if you want (like the TinyUmbrella directory)
  • “Submit”  – both verifies and submits one or more blob files to Cydia.  This lets you copy your entire TinyUmbrella cache of blobs up to the Cydia server
  • “Query” - queries the Cydia server for all available FULL or PARTIAL blobs for a given set of ECIDs
  • “Stitch” – stitches either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a STOCK or CUSTOM IPSW
  1. Stitching is NOT yet supported on iPhones!  Need to work out the baseband part of the restore process.
  2. FULL blobs stitched to a STOCK IPSW gives you a completely self-contained signed IPSW that iTunes will accept without any tricks (no need to go into pwned DFU mode, no need to start TinyUmbrella TSS server, no need to redirect to Cydia server for blobs)
  3. PARTIAL blobs stitched to any IPSW requires you to go into pwned DFU mode before running iTunes.  No need to start TU or use Cydia though.
  4. Stitching either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a CUSTOM IPSW also requires a pwned DFU start before iTunes restores.  No need to start TU or use Cydia though.
  5. Will eventually support fetching the blobs directly from Cydia instead of a file on your computer.
