Redsnow one of the very popular software used for jail breaking the Apple’s iPhone and the iPhone Dev Team released a new and major version of the software. The update is called Redsnow 0.9.9b6 which is now supporting the Windows operating system. The previous beta version we had was only compatible for Mac OS X but this is the one which has been made available for both Mac and Windows operating system.
The new version which has support or Windows is basically released for solving a problem which was there in the previous version of the software. In the previous version the users had the problem of location service crashing in iPhone 3GS on iPad baseband 06.15.00 after they jailbreak the device.
With redsn0w 0.9.9b6 you are now able to fix the aGPS location service issue on iPhone 3GS baseband 06.15. This one is not the complete solution of the problem but still it is a small solution until we get a downgrade for the baseband which might be releasing soon.
According to Dev team: “We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup).
The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode. It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5.
Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).”
This news is only for the users who have iPhone 3GS other users need to ignore it as this version is not going to help them at all. Other than iPhone 3GS, Redsnow 0.9.9b6 will do tethered jailbreak to all other iDevices. iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are not in compatibility with this version.
