The iPhone Dev-Team has released yet another update to redsn0w, bringing the popular jailbreaking utility to version 0.9.10b8 for OS X and Windows. The updates includes the ability to save your iPhone’s unlock tickets, backup arbitrary directories or files from your device into a zip file on your Mac or PC, and makes zip files more compatible with the native Windows explorer.
Those with an iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or new iPad running iOS 5.1 will still have to wait for a jailbreak to be released, as this latest version of redsn0w does not address that issue. Additionally, older devices running iOS 5.1 remain limited to a tethered jailbreak until an untethered version is released.
Update #3: redsn0w 0.9.10b8 adds the ability to backup arbitrary directories or files from your device into a zip file on your Mac or PC. The new button is Extras->Even More->Backup and it requires your device to be jailbroken with the afc2 service enabled (most jailbreaks include that). By default it will backup your activation records from /var/root/Library/Lockdown, which is useful for everyone taking advantage of today’s SAM unlock using Loktar_Sun’s trick (more on that in a later post!).
Update #3b: The 0.9.10b8b update to redsn0w makes the zip files more compatible with the native Windows explorer (which doesn’t like leading slashes in the filenames).
