iOS 5 beta 7 is out and most of us beta testers have already updated to the latest build. Once again, Dev-Team has been quick enough to release Redsn0w 0.9.8 b7b which can jailbreak iOS 5 beta 7 tethered on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G / 3G and iPad. iPhone 3GS users with older bootrom get to enjoy an untethered jailbreak on iOS 5 beta 7 like always. If you own an iPad 2, please note that this does not currently work on it. iPad 2 can be jailbroken only on firmware version 4.3.3 or below using JailbreakMe 3.0.
Please remember that this is a developer’s only release for beta testing so please proceed at your own risk.
Here are the official release notes:
Update #7b: About 12 hours after we released redsn0w 0.9.8b7 with some improvements for iOS5b6, Apple went and released iOS5b7 (what are the odds of that?!?). Even though that redsn0w could still jailbreak iOS5b7, you needed to point it at the iOS5b6 IPSW to do so. Today’s redsn0w 0.9.8b7b lets you point redsn0w directly at the iOS5b7 IPSW instead.
We’ve also added some overall improvements for old-bootrom 3GS owners (where the 24kpwn exploit applies): on those devices, you can tell redsn0w to untether 4.3.5 and lower, or iOS5b7. Old-bootrom 3GS owners can once again choose custom logos, and/or verbose booting (for the really nerdy iPhone3GS fans out there!). And it allows 4.3.4 or 4.3.5 users to use ultrasn0w again (if they have a compatible baseband).
NOTE: If you rely on a carrier unlock using Ultrasn0w and want to preserve your baseband, please refer to Sn0wbreeze 2.8b7.
