Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 Released

Heads up, Windows (and OS X!) users: The Dev-Team has just released the fifth beta of redsn0w, so you can unlock your iPhone 3G/3GS by running iPad’s vulnerable 06.15 baseband.

The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out. It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now). There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).

  • OSX (SHA1 a322ec2c9e91993eca21abaf2e655bb44de3d7d4)
  • Windows (SHA1 7250416e17c3aea9838cdfc73712b38b025e2ed0)

If you do flash your baseband via redsn0w, please keep it plugged into USB the whole time.  You don’t want your battery to die during the flash process!

It works similarly to the new PwnageTool, although it automates the ISPW downloading process. Make sure you read over all available documentation (including MrDodi’s tutorial) before running it.
