Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 Jailbreak Released, Fixes Skype Issues

Redsn0w 0.9.7b6, the untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak is now available for download. Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 fixes Skype issues on iOS device. The beta 6 of RedSn0w 0.9.7 is available for Mac OS X and requires iOS 4.2 beta 3 SHSH blobs.

The next release of RedSn0w 0.9.7 will add “iOS 4.1 Monte” to avoid iOS 4.2 beta 3 piracy. For now, RedSn0w is in beta testing phase.

From iPhone Dev Team blog,

The sixth beta is now available (testers ONLY please!). This version fixes Skype. Please do not pirate the 4.2b3 IPSW! Only those enrolled in the iPhone Developer program have legitimate access to that IPSW using these links ( (the links won’t work unless you’re a legit developer currently logged in).

Unlike the last few betas, you can freely run beta6 over beta5 without a problem (but for testing purposes, we’d really like people to try both ways….from stock, and from already jailbroken).

Now that the sandbox, Bluetooth, and Skype issues are fixed, our next priority is porting Monte back to 4.1. We’ll also try to make the Windows version less painfully slow.

Guys, let’s just be patient. I’m sure by the time the iPad 7th gen comes out we MIGHT have a non-beta untethered redsn0w for 4.2!

Hello, I have an Iphone 3gs and it comes with dead display with only apple logo. When I tried to do official restore via iTunes it shows 1015 error and I downloaded custom restore firmware 4.2.1 from somewhere and restored by custom restore. Obviously iTunes shows “sim card not supported” message and I couldn’t activate my phone. I have tried latest redsn0w but it just shows “unspecified IPSW” when I browse my custom restore firmware 4.2.1. Please help me what should I do now?

Hey muugii, I just did the same as you, and succeded hahahaha! >:D

kidding, well heres what I did:

1. download redsn0w 0.9.6b6
2. download the ORIGINAL ipsw 4.2.1 restore, not custom.Redsn0w needs the original not an already customized one.
3. open redsn0w and pick this ipsw, let it do the magic, pick if newboot or old.
4. mark install cydia only
5. follow redsn0w instructions.
6 note that at the moment you can only do tethered jailbreak, but it will activate it and get you out of the emergency call mode 😉

let me know if this helped.

Thanks Karlos it worked for me also. Thank you very much.

Yes you’re right it seems like i did tethered one because every time it reboot it requires redsn0w. That untethered one is available right now?
