After first releasing the baseband 06.15.00-downgrading redsn0w 0.9.14b1 last month, the iPhone Dev-Team has now updated the jailbreak tool (to redsn0w 0.9.14b2) to improve the downgrade experience, according to Redmond Pie.
Happy 4th of July! Today’s release of redsn0w 0.9.14b2 improves the iPad baseband downgrade and should cover anyone who couldn’t downgrade with 0.9.14b1. This version covers 3 different types of NOR chips in the iPhone 3G and 3GS (the earlier version covered only the most prevalent NOR chip). We’ve also simplified the process and added logging to help diagnose any remaining stubborn iPhones.
The website outlines new, “revised steps” when using the updated version of the software:
- Connect your iPhone in normal mode, then click “Jailbreak” after redsn0w identifies its model and BB version (you needn’t pre-select the IPSW anymore).
- Choose the “Downgrade from iPad baseband” option (you needn’t worry about de-selecting Cydia anymore).
- Do a controlled “slide to power off” shutdown of your phone and proceed through the normal DFU ramdisk steps.
