Released version 0.9.2 of Redsn0w
A cross-platform jailbreaking, unlocking, and customizing tool for iPhones and iPod touches. Customizations include boot logos, recovery logos, and “verbose” boot. It’s a standalone program that doesn’t use iTunes (no custom IPSWs are involved).
After reading the brief Q&A on our wikee, feel free to ask any questions below in the comments. Briefly though, if you’re already happy with your current jailbroken system (whether it’s via PwnageTool or blackra1n), and if you don’t want boot logos, then you can safely ignore this post and we’ll continue the wait for Apple’s next release together Otherwise go ahead and try some new boot logos using redsn0w, or use it for fresh jailbreaks. If you use it on an already jailbroken phone, be sure to checkmark “Already pwned” and don’t reinstall Cydia again (doing so will probably make Cydia lose track of what it has installed).
Caution: if you’re using the ultrasn0w or yellowsn0w unlocks then don’t be tempted to update to official 3.1.2 just to use redsn0w (and remember, redsn0w still works at 3.0 anyway). If you update to official 3.1.2, redsn0w will still work but you’ll lose ultrasn0w and yellowsn0w. There is geohot’s blacksn0w for those who updated to official 3.1.2 but there are still wifi problems with the unlock at that firmware in a small number of cases. iPhone 2G unlockers don’t need to worry about any of this, since BootNeuter handles all that regardless of firmware version (BootNeuter is installed for you by redsn0w if you have an iPhone 2G and choose “unlock”).
And for those of you who want to experiment with your internet tethering options over cellular, try redsn0w version 0.9.3 in the extra links at the bottom
