It’s a jolly Christmas for you iPhone jailbreak enthusiasts out there waiting on an untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak to roll out. The iPhone Dev Team has released redsn0w 0.9.7b1 over the weekend, which provides an untethered means to jailbreak both the iPhone 4 and iPad running on iOS 4.2. Do note, however, that this is still a beta tester program so expect some hiccups along the way. They also warn that Bluetooth functionality is disabled here due to “some sandbox issues with Bluetooth” and this only work on a Mac OS X system. iPhone unlock dependents are also advised to stay clear of this version of redsn0w.
Still can’t wait to try it out? Head on over here for the full details on how to go about this, but use the more recently released redsn0w 0.9.7b2 jailbreak instead of the one mentioned above. The redsn0w 0.9.7b1 had issues with native apps crashing. The newer one has already resolved these issue. To download redsn0w 0.9.7b2, just click here.
