    Any chance of PPC users getting the goodness of redsn0w? I'm on PPC and unfortunately cannot jailbreak until one is released.

    Anyone want to step up to the plate?

    (I would hope everyone knows that PPC is the processor used by apple before the move to Intel in 2006)

    There's no word yet if XiPhone will be PPC-compatible.

    MuscleNerd mentioned somewhere on here that he was going to make a PPC compatible Redsn0w Lite.

    Try this version if you have a PPC: http://iphwn.org/rslite101u.zip

    (Note: you probably won't see text come back from the various bootloaders but the commands themselves should still work. Not sure why it's doing that on PPC).

    Other than that you won't see some of the text banners come back from iBSS or iBoot when you connect, there's no difference between using rslite on a PPC versus on an i386, so whatever tutorials are out there are still applicable.

    PwnageTool (which you use to customize your jailbroken ipsw) was already both PPC and i386.
