It seems Apple couldn’t find any way to stop Redsn0w working on iOS 5 beta releases. The just released iOS 5 beta 3 can be jailbroken with Redsnow 0.9.8 beta 1 version, confirms MuscleNerd through his twitter account.
@MuscleNerd: Today’s 5.0b3 can be jailbroken with last month’s redsn0w http://is.gd/6eek4Y(point it at 5.0b1 IPSW..devs only please!)
Though no new features are included in beta 3 release, but a lot of bugs are fixed in it. Read our previous post to read the full changelog and to check what is changed in this new release.
At the moment the jailbreak for iOS 5 beta 3 is tethered on all idevices except iPad 2. iPad 2 can not be jailbroken with Redsn0w or even with any other jailbreak tool except JailbreakMe 3.0 which can jailbreak iPad 2 running on iOS 4.3.3.
We have already covered the complete jailbreak process in “Jailbreak iOS 5 on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod Touch with Redsnow 0.9.8” post. The only difference in iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak and iOS 5 beta 3 jailbreak is that you have to point Redsn0w to iOS 5 beta 1 when you are asked to browse for .iPSW file.
- Update your device to latest iOS 5 beta 3 version.
