Redsn0w 0.9.7 Beta 5 Out With Fix for Bluetooth Issues

by Maverick on January 10, 2011

The iPhone Dev Team as they have said before has released the Beta 5 version of the Untethered Jailbreak tool Redsn0w 0.9.7, which fixes all sandbox-related issues, including the Bluetooth problems. They have also added an “anti-piracy plea” note which serves as a warning for those, who are pirating iOS 4.2 beta 3 firmware.

In the release of this Redsn0w 0.9.7 Beta 5, they have also metioned about the Windows version of this tool which is almost ready but not released yet because it is slow to use compared to the Mac OS version. So the iPhone Dev Team is working on fixing this performance issue and once they do that, they will release the windows version of Redsn0w 0.9.7.

Here’s the update from their blog about the release of Redsn0w 0.9.7 Beta 5:

The fifth beta is now available (testers ONLY please!). Bluetooth is now working (and any sandbox-related issues should be resolved too). Please do not pirate the 4.2b3 IPSW! Only those enrolled in the iPhone Developer program have legitimate access to that IPSW using these links ( (the links won’t work unless you’re a legit developer currently logged in).

There is actually a Windows version of beta5, but it’s excruciatingly slow compared to the Mac version because it’s forced to use files on your hard drive instead of RAM while it’s processing the very large IPSW images. It really is very very painfully slow, so we probably won’t be releasing it for testing purposes unless it can be sped up somehow.

To jailbreak (untethered) iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.2.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.7, you can follow the instructions for untethered jailbreak by following our complete step by step guide posted here.
