Jailbrk iOS 5 Beta 6 Using Redsn0w 0.9.8b6

has just relsed iOS Beta 6 so if you have jail this version using Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 you may have noticed some stability issues. Thankfully all these issues have now been resolved and Redsn0w 0.9.8b6 has been relsed.

This new relse of Redsn0w, according to MuscleNerd shouldn�t be too far from the final 0.9.8 relse which will be relsed once the final version of iOS 5 is relsed. MuscleNerd is a well known member of the iOS jailbrking community that have been developing Redsn0w over the yrs.

The iPhone Dev-Tm Blog had this to say: We�ve relsed redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbrk iOS 5 beta 6 (point it directly at the beta 6 IPSW). Two important notes about this version: 1. Plse let your device boot normally to iOS 5 beta 6 and do a cln shutdown before jailbrking. 2. Boot logos have intentionally been disabled for now, so you�ll see a black screen on tethered boots (you can re-enable logos or verbose boot with command-line options if you rlly want them back).

Due to incrsed sensitivity to abrupt file system shutdowns in iOS 5 beta 6, it is very important that you do a cln shutdown before running redsn0w. The previous version of Redsn0w functioned with iOS 5 beta 6, some users reported several stability issues with jail devices on a daily basis. If you have alrdy jail your beta 6 device with Redsn0w you might want to re-jailbrk it by restoring it through iTunes and then running Redsn0w 0.9.8b6 again. There are no visual changes in this new version but it will fix any stability issues you might have experienced.

This update is simply aimed at fixing bugs. It is still a tethered jailbrk and it does not make any advancement towards an untethered iOS 5 jailbrk. It is unlikely that an untethered jailbrk will make an apprance until the final version if iOS 5 is relsed.

This version of Redsn0w is aimed at developers who are using the iOS 5 beta.
