Wishing to quickly provide a release of jailbreak for the iPhone OS 4, DevTeam has published a beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.5 dedicated to developers.
It didn’t take long for the first unofficial release to come about for the future iPhone OS 4.0 system to be made available to the iPhone and iPod Touch. A development version of this operating system has been released by Apple, with players in the ongoing game of cat and mouse having now taken the official release and unlocked it ( jailbreak ). Development is ongoing so that a final version will then be made available to the general public. This will allow for applications unapproved by Apple to be installed on the handsets, opening up the devices for additional uses not usually seen.
Alternative application developers have already started working on their releases which you won’t find on the App Store. The DevTeam, one of the groups working on the iPhone jailbreak, have made the Redsn0w 0.9.5 tool available to allow developers to start working on applications which will be compatible with the new iPhone OS 4 system. These future releases will be found on download portals other than the App Store.
Developers only The team strongly discourages normal users installing this release on their handsets, as it is a beta version and numerous jailbreak applications will no longer work after its installation. This release is solely for developers to update their programs which are already available.
You will also nee to have development code installed to activate Redsn0w 0.9.5 beta, with the tool currently only available on Mac OS X.
