The Dev Team discreetly released redsn0w beta 0.9 today, allowing users to activate iPhones without finding a custom firmware that already does it – which is illegal. redsn0w allows you to jailbreak your iPod without the use of a custom firmware. It is a standalone program for Mac OS X and Windows. Check after the jump for download links.
Note: This obviously does not support the iPod touch 3G. If it did, this would’ve been bigger news and this article would have been called, “iPod touch 3G jailbreak released!”
