As an article over on iDownloadBlog is reporting the iPhone Dev team has kindly released RedSn0w 0.9.15b2, which will fix a number of things for owners of older iOS devices. The biggest standout fix is for the iPhone 3GS users that have old bootrooms, as the RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 update now brings back untethered jailbreak support for users that fall into this category.
Most of the iPhone Dev Teams changes don’t cover owners of newer iOS hardware, but there is nothing wrong having the latest version installed and running on your device, the Dev Team took to its blog to reveal the changes made and for 3GS users the old bootrom is not forgotten after a restore is carried out.
Also iPad baseband downgrade/upgrade support has been fixed and if a users iPhone 3GS is tethered at 6.0, even if it is setting on an old bootroom all that is needed is a re-run of redsn0w’s jailbreak procedure to get the untethered jailbreak back.
