Download Redsn0w 0.9.9b6 – Jailbreak iOS 5 – Fix Location Services [Winows / Mac]

The RedsnOw 0.9.9 b6 download is now available. The iPhone Dev-team’s spokesman, MuscleNerd,  announced the release of Redns0w 0.9.9b6 for Mac and Windows.

Redsn0w 0.9.9b6 is specially designed to eliminates the network crash that happened when using Location Services with jailbroken iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.

Quoted MuscleNerd:

We’ve 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 don’t 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.

It’s 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 can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).

Did you jailbreak your iOS 5 device? Not yet? Click Here and follow instructions to be able to do so.

You have already jailbreak you iOS device, then click here to re-run the Redsn0w 0.9.9 b6. Note: all you need to do is to choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia, nothing more.

However, do not get too excited this new version does not mean that it will fix the GPS issue for the iPhone 3GS users on 6.15.00 baseband. This is because the  06.15.00 baseband has “assisted GPS” (aGPS), therefore it will use things like  tower triangulation in apps like Google Maps.
