redsnow 0.9.9b5 jailbreak for iOS 5 for Windows Users – Delayed
Well it is little delay for Windows users, which want to jailbreak iOS 5 via redsn0w 0.9.9b5 because they are in process of release finallization. Same thing applies for the Ultrasn0w 1.3 where they are simply configuring the update for iOS 5 final release. For Mac users, redsnow 0.9.9b5 has been released to jailbreak iOS 5 final release, where for older iOS 5 GM version, redsnow 0.9.9b4 was working fully.
Now here is the official statement of Dev Team, where they confirm that redsnow 0.9.9b5 is release but Windows users have to wait and Ultrasnow is in pipe line.
With today’s official iOS5 release, redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.9b5 to include the public URLs for the IPSW files. This way, first-time iOS5 jailbreakers don’t need to supply the IPSW file manually. It’s still a tethered jailbreak on all except the old-bootrom iPhone3GS, and it doesn’t apply to iPad2 or the upcoming iPhone4S.
Because the jailbreak is currently only tethered for most devices, we’re not going to release a new PwnageTool yet. Instead, we’ve decided to build some of PwnageTool’s functionality into redsn0w (since you need redsn0w to “Just boot tethered” on every power cycle anyway). The new “Custom IPSW” button on the Extras screen will create a custom IPSW without the baseband update for 4.3.3 or 5.0gm (iPhone3GS and iPhone4 only, for now). Remember not to accidentally restore to the stock IPSW after you create the custom one! The custom one begins with NO_BB_ (for “no baseband”).
You must enter “Pwned DFU” mode before trying to use the NO_BB_ IPSW with iTunes (and your hosts file cannot be pointing to Cydia’s servers due to the new blob nonce mechanism they’re using in iOS5).
Version 0.9.9b5 is available only for Mac for now, until we can do more testing on the Windows version of “Custom IPSW”.
We’re currently working on a normal compatibility update for existing ultrasn0w unlockers. After that we’ll try to fix the iBooks issue on jailbroken iOS5
So guys, it is not much time we have to wait to see Tethered and Untethered Jailbreak and Unlock Tools just before November
There is another point, where this particular redsnow 0.9.9b5 is not supported with iPad 2 and iPhone 4S
