Redsn0w 0.9.7 Beta 6: Skype Fix, Next Version Will Use 4.1 SHSH Blobs Instead Of 4.2b3 For 4.2.1 Untether

Here comes the 6th version of Redsn0w 0.9.7. It fixes all Skype related issues which were hampering users ever since the first beta of this untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak.

This version fixes Skype (and as expected all along, the Skype issue turns out to be unrelated to sandbox patches).

Unlike the last few betas, you can freely run beta6 over beta5 without a problem (b

ut for testing purposes, we’d really like people to try both ways….from stock, and from already jailbroken).  If all you want to do is fix Skype and you’re already untethered using beta5, just run beta6 and deselect every checkbox.

Now that the Bluetooth and Skype related issues have been fixed, the iPhone Dev-Team is now working on porting the “Monte” technique back to iOS 4.1. This will enable users to untether the iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch without having 4.2b3 SHSH blobs saved on Cydia.
