Here is good news for iPhone & iPod Touch jailbreakers, iPhone dev team has released update Redsn0w, Redsn0w 0.9.6 Beta 1 to let you jailbreak iPhone 3G iOS 4.1 & iPod Touch 2G iOS 4.1. However if you want to unlock then you must stay away from Redsn0w 0.9.6 and wait for Pwnagetool 4.1.
This Beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.6 is for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G at iOS 4.1 or 4.0. It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that has been using since the 2.x days. It does not include the SHAtter exploit for iOS 4.2 & 4.1 developed by pod2g for obvious reason to keep it away from Apple’s hand.
Redsn0w 0.9.6 Beta 1 Supports
1. iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G only (for now)
2. Mac OS X x86 only (for now)
3. 4.1 or 4.0 firmware from Apple
4. Also supports 4.2 Beta firmware but many things are broken at a time.
Stay tuned with us for the detailed guide to jailbreak iPhone 3G & iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6.
