RedSn0w 0.9.12b2: minor update and bugfixes
The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.12b2. New version has some bugfixes and additional question about jailbreak mode for A4 devices.
Redsn0w allows owners of A4+earlier devices to install rocky-racoon two different ways:
- Backup/restore method similar to Absinthe and cinject.
- Traditional limera1n-based ramdisk install. It is much faster, especially for users with lot's music, movies, apps on the device.
Redsn0w 0.9.12b2 will ask owners of iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 1 what jailbreak mode they would like to use.
Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their device that would create very large backups, and it's required for those with unactivated iPhones). If you'll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane. It also fixes an iBooks issue on old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.
RedSn0w 0.9.12b2 supports untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak for all devices:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4S
- iPad 1
- iPad 2
- new iPad 3
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
