This is still part of the iPhone Dev Team’s invitation for testers of the beta program of the latest version of Redsn0w that will implement the “backup plan” to the 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak.
The Dev Team
is going to released the updated Redsn0w today, that’s Redsn0w 0.9.7b4, which will eliminate the usbmuxd (USB Mutiplex Daemon) process. That means many more Mac users can join the program.
Today’s beta4 will eliminate separate usbmuxd process (so many more Mac users can use it). After that, expand to Windows.
Again, this test program is only for Mac users – but the Dev Team said they will be expanding it to Windows users. That would be interesting J. Stay tuned for more updates in the iPhone jailbreaking community. [via]
Update 1: The iPhone Dev Team already released the fourth beta of Redsn0w 0.9.7.
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). [via]
