The Dev Team is prepping a test release of an untethered version of their redsn0w jailbreak for the latest iOS devices running iOS 4.2, for release this weekend.
The test release is intended to help the Dev Team to find any bugs in the new redsn0w version and fix them all before a full public release.
There are already untethered jailbreaks around for the iPhone 3G, and old-bootrom ipt2g or iPhone 3GS. Untethered jailbreak, by the way, means one that ‘sticks’, as in does not require you to re-jailbreak each time you reboot your iDevice.
There are some very specific requirements for who can take part in this test release. For starters, it is Mac only at this stage. They also ask for testers who do not need the ultrasn0w unlock, and those that have legitimate (registered developer) access to the iOS 4.2 Beta 3 .ipsw (firmware) file and have got their 4.2b3 SHSH hashes stored via Cydia.
If you feel sure you fit the bill for this testing and you’d like to help the Dev Team work towards a stable and bug-free release of redsn0w for latest devices and 4.2, then here’s what you should do:
