It was only a short number of days ago that we brought you news of the latest release of Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 with the ability to Jailbreak iOS 6 tethered on A4 devices. Well, the ever hard-working iPhone Dev-Team has just released another update bringing Redsn0w to version 0.9.15b2. This latest version of Redsn0w offers an array of bug fixes for both iPhone 3SG and iPad users, as well as an untethered Jailbreak ability for some lucky iPhone 3GS users who have older Bootrooms, and who are also running a tethered Jailbreak on iOS 6.
Here is what the iPhone Dev-Team have posted on their blog:
“Version 0.9.15b2 fixes a few issues for 3GS owners: old-bootrom awesomeness is no longer forgotten directly after a restore, and iPad baseband upgrade/downgrade support is fixed (same production date cutoffs apply!). If your 3GS is currently tethered at 6.0 even though you have an old bootrom, just re-run redsn0w’s Jailbreak step (no need to restore). Don’t forget you can add some pizzaz with your own boot logo or a nerdy verbose boot.”
This is great news for iPad 3GS users running tethered iOS 6, all you need to do is re-run the Redsn0w 0.9.15b2 Jailbreak to get your untethered on. We have the guide tethered guide below.
As with all tutorials, please back up your device before you begin and proceed at your own risk. Mobicuppa will not take responsibility to any loss of data or damage which occurs to your device during the guide.
Step 1. Download one of the following:
Step 2. Launch Redsn0w on your PC.
OS X Mountain Lion users: Ctrl-Click on Redsn0ws icon then from the menu select ‘Open’.
Windows users: Open and run in Administrator mode.
Step 3. Now you will need to connect your device to your PC via USB and place it into DFU mode. To achieve this, simply hold down the ‘Power’ + ‘Home’ buttons together for at least 10 seconds. Then whilst still holding down the ‘Home’ button, release ‘Power’ and wait a further 10 seconds.
Step 4. Now you will need to select ‘Jailbreak’ then make sure you have selected the‘Install Cydia’ option. Once this is done Redsn0w will go ahead and begin the Jailbreaking process.
Step 5. You will need to place your device back into DFU Mode once the Jailbreak completes and it has booted into the Home screen.
Step 6. From the Redsn0w home screen select ‘Extras’ >‘Just Boot’. This will perform a tethered boot.
Step 7. Once your device reboots, open Cydia. Whenever you perform a re-restore on your device you will have untethered jailbreak capability.
