For those of you who have an iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G, then you would have been watching with envy as those with more updated devices were enjoying using iOS 4.1 on their jailbroken phone or media device. However, we can now tell you that Redsn0w 0.9.6 is now ready for download, so you too can now enjoy the jailbreak for iPhone iOS 4.1.
We have to advise you that this is just a beta download, so you can be certain that there will be a few issues along the way. According to Taimur Asad from Redmond Pie, pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit is still being used, those of you familiar with this will know that it has been used since version 2.x of the iPhone OS.
There is good news and bad news with this jailbreak, the good news is that those with Mac OS X x86 will be able to take advantage of the jailbreak, and the bad news is that those with Windows will have to wait.
Before you go ahead with the download Asad does warn you that if your iPhone 3G uses Ultrasn0w unlock, then you should not use Redsn0w. The reason is because your baseband will then be updated, this means that you will not be able to unlock it until a further update is made available.
Visit Redmond Pie for step-by-step instructions for updating your iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G with Jailbreak iOS 4.1.
