Download Redsnow 0.9.9b6 to Jailbreak iOS 5 on Windows

The iPhone Dev Team has finally released an update to Redsn0w which adds support for Windows users. The previous version released a week back lacked support for Jailbreaking iOS5 final on Windows.

This update also fixes the aGPS issues with iPhone 3GS.

From the iPhone Dev-Team:

We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.

It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked).  If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).
