Redsn0w iOS jailbreak tool updated to version 0.9.8b7, untethered solution still nowhere in sight
Are you one of those geeky individuals that like to free their iPhone from its shackles by giving it the jailbreak treatment? If so, then this news is for you. Redsn0w 0.9.8b7 has just been released taking care of some issues that were present in its previous versions. The tool can be used to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6, iOS 4.3.5 and 4.2.10.
It is a drag, however, that the jailbreak is still tethered, meaning that you will have to repeat the procedure every time your iPhone needs a reboot. Sadly enough, an untethered solution for the latest iOS versions is probably not going to land anytime soon since Apple fixed the vulnerability in the platform that allowed for an untethered jailbreak to be performed.
Nevertheless, if the tethered part of the jailbreak does not bother you, the guys over at Smash iPhone have put together a detailed tutorial on jailbreaking your iPhone using redsn0w 0.9.8b7. It covers every single step of the procedure and has all the necessary files available for download. Feel free to check out the jailbreak tutorial by following the source link below.
