Latest iOS 5 Beta Jailbroken for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
As you would expect, with Apple’s recent release of iOS 5’s fifth beta version came a jailbreak for the mobile operating system. Redsn0w 0.9.8b5, available for both Mac- and Windows-based iDevices, updates the tool to jailbreak the most recent beta for Apple’s upcoming iOS 5.
“For now the iPhone Dev Team is recommending that only developers that want to see if their apps for jailbroken devices work with the latest beta use the new version of redsn0w,” reads an article on Mobiputing. “In order to use the software you’ll need to connect your mobile device to a computer via a USB cable and run the redsn0w app. Because this is a tethered jailbreak, any time you reboot your iOS device you’ll need to reconnect to a computer and run the software again.”
iOS 5 beta 5 expands the capabilities of the new iCloud remote storage service, which will allow users to backup their music, videos, pictures and other important documents so that they can be accessed from any Apple gadget. The new mobile operating system is expected to be released alongside the state-of-the-art iPhone 5 in either September or October, although Apple hasn’t said much in the way of launch dates.
