Redsn0w 0.9.7b4 Released, No Need to Run USBMUX Relay

iPhone Dev Team has just released fourth beta of Redsn0w 0.9.7. This beta no longer requires you to install and run the usbmaxd software. Redsn0w 0.9.7b4 brings the embedded usbmuxd, esp for those Mac users who couldn’t ge the python script running.

There are no improvements for iPhone in this release. The issues related to Skype and Bluetooth are still present.

Here is the official update from iPhone Dev Team’s blog:

The fourth beta is now available (testers ONLY please!). Starting with this version, redsn0w no longer requires you to install and run a separate program for the usbmux (this was a non-trivial procedure for many).   It’s okay to keep that program running if you normally use it for ssh anyway.  We also think we’ve fixed a race condition in the GUI that was causing redsn0w to crash during the “Preparing JB Monte Files” step. Nothing at all has changed on the iPhone side (where the main issues are still just Bluetooth and Skype).

To get the untethered jailbreak on your iDevice, follow the steps mentioned here while skipping the Step 4.


  • Download Redsn0w 0.9.7 b4 for Mac
  • Official Link is here (in case the above direct link doesn’t work)
  • Redsn0w 0.9.7 b4 for Windows is coming soon.

Note: If your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch is already jailbroken with one of previous betas, do a fresh restore first and then re-jailbreak with this beta to see the changes. If you don’t experience any issues except Skype and Bluetooth problem with your already jailbroken (untethered) iDevice, there is no need to re-jailbreak with this new beta.
