Last week we saw plenty of Apple related news hitting the internet. The release of financial figures for the third quarter of 2012 showed great progress with seriously impressive sales of the iPad and a profit of $8.8 billion raked in during that period. We also saw the release of the final retail version of OS X Mountain Lion hitting the Mac App Store.
Users from all over the world headed over to the Mac App Store to purchase and install OS X 10.8 onto their Macs and for many the question of software compatibility was on the back of their minds. For active members of the jailbreak community, you will be aware that any update to Apple’s iOS software can generally lead to tweaks and Cydia packages becoming unstable due to internal changes made by Apple. Updating a desktop operating system doesn’t have an impact on Cydia tweaks, but it does have the potential to impact the way jailbreak tools work.
Redsn0w which is one of the most popular jailbreak tools provided by the iPhone Dev Team has moved to eradicate some of the fear by taking to twitter to inform all users that Redsn0w is compatible with OS X Mountain Lion. There is more information on their blog.
Those who intend on using Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 on OS X 10.8 will need to Ctrl-Click-Open the app for the first time to bypass the new security features in Mountain Lion. This is only applicable on the first run after the download. The fact that Mountain Lion was only officially released and that there was a jailbreak related update already available shows that the iPhone Dev Team are really on the ball and they are continuously looking out for the interests of their community.
If you have purchased OS X Mountain Lion and you are looking at jailbreak tools, Redsn0w is available. Redsn0w can be used to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 and below untethered on all devices except for the 3rd generation Apple TV.Read more...
