    With the release of iOS 5 Beta 2, jailbreak hackers are on the move again to release jailbreak clients to support iOS 5 Beta 2. iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) released sn0wbreeze 2.8 Beta 2 to support jailbreaks on iOS 5 Beta 2. MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) and the iPhone Dev-Team said yesterday on Twitter saying that the redsn0w beta for iOS 5 Beta 1 (for Mac and Windows) still works for Beta 2. However, when speaking with iH8sn0w on Skype, here's the difference:

    When using redsn0w beta for iOS 5, you still have to point to the iOS 5 Beta 1 IPSW even when on iOS 5 Beta 2. Because it is using old kernels, this is why it makes it possible. However, if bug problems arise, then issues can occur. sn0wbreeze actually updates those kernels and allows for a more smooth jailbreak.
    ========================
    sn0wbreeze v2.8 BETA 3:
    ========================
    * Now jailbreaks iOS 5 (beta 2)
    * Does not Hacktivate or add afc2 in this release to prevent piracy.
    * iPhone 3GS old bootrom users have an untethered boot.
    * Now only 15MB
    ========================
    Supported Devices:
    ========================
    * iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) [UNTETHERED]
    * iPhone 3GS (new bootrom) [TETHERED]
    * iPhone 4 GSM [TETHERED]
    * iPhone 4 CDMA [TETHERED]
    * iPod Touch 3G [TETHERED]
    * iPod Touch 4 [TETHERED]
    * iPad 1G [TETHERED]
    ========================
    Now available at: Hotfile.com: One click file hosting: sn0wbreeze-v2.8b3.zip
    ========================

    sn0wbreeze 2.8 Beta 2 is available for Windows users and can be downloaded at the following link:

    whats the afc2 to prevent piracy thing? are the makers of the jailbreaks trying to combat people illegally downloading app store apps, or just cydia apps?
    When the police want to know where someone is, they ask apple.

    so people cant ssh into the device and remove certain files to hacktivate it.

    afc2, like said above, has to do with the iOS 5 Beta. sn0wbreeze does not allow people to jailbreak the iOS 5 beta unless their UDID is legitimately registered.

    Josh, it must be something about your articles because once again I'm only seeing the first post despite swapping to safari this time. However, I did find out that if I click on the "#1" showing that it is the first comment for the article, it takes me to a different page where I can read the article and see all of the replies....so it's really not that big of a deal.

    Back to the article. Hopefully someone can explain this to me...but why do they keep releasing the jailbreak for the beta versions of iOS 5. It seems that releasing the jailbreak, and therefore the method by which it is done, would give Apple a chance to patch up the method before iOS 5 is finally made available to the general public. I know it's fun for the developers to have a jailbreak so they can go ahead and have things ready when the update is finally available, but it seems that it comes with the risk of Apple patching that jailbreak method. I'm sure there's something faulty in my reasoning...some someone tell me where I'm wrong?

    Elaborate if you may; I write strictly what I hear/discover/learn. I in no means try to spread any type of shenanigans whatsoever. Also, there was no mention to inferiority of redsn0w so it's not a jab or a kick the to the shins. However, even as you mentioned, there is a little change in the kernel between beta 1 and 2. That is worth noting. And any slight difference could be a potential issue.

    That is extremely odd; I'll jot this down and see if I can get in touch with Kyle and see what can be done.

    Define update? As in for an unlock? Just buy a turbo sim for that bad boy.

    As for a newer baseband then yes it will update to a newer one. The betas already update your baseband so when the official fw comes im pretty positive it will come out with a different baseband as well.
