Well, after a long wait to sort out technical issues, Dev-Team released the Windows version of their redsn0w Beta version 0.9.6b1, a tool to jailbreak the recently released iOS 4.1. redsn0w should cover iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G devices for now with a different type of jailbreak method expected to be released later for generation 4 devices.
The redsn0w jailbreaking tool Windows version also comes out with a warning: If you see “Waiting for reboot” message for longer than 20 seconds, just unplug / plug again the USB cable without closing the application. Also, a USB port that connects directly in the motherboard is recommended, instead of using a hub. We’ll perform the jailbreaking process on a iPhone 3G and document the experience in an upcoming article.
If you haven’t jailbroken your iPhone yet, not it is a good time. iOS 4.1 solves some of the speed complaints widely reported when using iphone 3G and iOS 4.0 to iOS 4.0.2. Right now, as expected, Dev-Team’s website is heavily hit by downloaders, but it should get better during the day.
