Redsn0w 0.9.12b2 released with new features and bugfixes
Today, the iPhone-Dev team has released Redsn0w 0.9.12b2. This new version of Redsn0w fixes an iBooks issue that was occurring with some old-bootrom 3Gs devices. The new release also adds a new feature where Redsn0w will ask you if you want to use the DFU/Restore method or the RAMDisk method if you have a device susceptible to the limera1n exploit. If you have an A5(X) device you will still need to use the DFU/Restore method.
Update #1: Starting with version 0.9.12b2, redsn0w will now explicitly ask users with limera1n-able devices whether they want to inject rocky-racoon using the DFU ramdisk method or the backup/restore method (the ramdisk method is better for those with lots of media on their device that would create very large backups, and it’s required for those with unactivated iPhones). If you’ll always want to use limera1n, you can select that in the Preferences pane. It also fixes an iBooks issue on old-bootrom 3GS iPhones, and provides more useful error messages when things go wrong.
