Jul 13, 2011

Well that was quick! Hours after the release of iOS 5 Beta 3 hackers showed their commitment and released tools to jailbreak the beta firmware namely Redsnow 0.9.8 b2 and Snowbreeze 2.8 b4.

Redsnow 0.9.8 b2:

According to iSpazio the new update fixes the problem with the downloaded applications from the App Store after the Jailbreak. The official applications crashed and failed to run making it almost impossible to use the applications.

The tool is available for both Windows and Mac.

Snowbreeze 2.8 b4:

iH8snOw didn’t take much time and responded fast. Earlier today he tweeted:

This tool too fixes the bug of applications as mentioned above. It is available for download for Windows only.

Both tools  require iTunes 10.5 Beta 3 and currently support the following devices:

  • iPhone 3GS (Old and New Bootrom)
  • iPhone 4 (GSM and CDMA)
  • iPad
  • IPod 3G
  • iPod 4G

iTunes 10.5 Beta 3 can be downloaded for Windows and Mac.

Note:  Both tools perform a tethered jailbreak and updating to iOS 5 Beta 3 is not recommended for unlockers.
