    SO I was looking at the Dev-Team's Google files and found that Redsnow 0.9.9b6 was uploaded on Oct 17 for windows an mac. Was wondering if anyone has seen any news of this release? I used 0.9.9b4 for windows to do a tethered JB... wondering if this is just some bug fixes or maybe a untethered?

    So I did some digging and found this:

    Weve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you dont even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.

    Its okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose Jailbreak again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w cant yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if its already been jailbroken).

    So it is just some bug fixes.

    also, i think Windows users do not need to point to a .ipsw file anymore

    unfortunately the Untethered is still a myth

    Nothing huge...if you look at the blog they describe what's in the update. For most people it won't make a difference...
