redsn0w Tethered Jailbreak Now Available For iOS 5 Beta 1

This week’s developer release of iOS 5 has brought hundreds of new features for iPhone and iPad owners, but jailbreakers haven’t wasted any time trying to figure out a way to get the old tweaks and hacks from Cydia working on the devices running the new OS. As tweeted by Musclenerd two hours ago, a new beta of popular jailbreaking tool redsn0w is available, bringing compatibility with devices on iOS 5 beta but exclusively meant for developers willing to beta test the software. As iOS 5 beta is developer-only and consumers shouldn’t get their hands on it, the Dev Team is asking developers of jailbroken apps to test their tweaks against the OS Apple will release this Fall.

Compatible devices:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

Furthermore, iSpazio reports a first list of compatible and not working tweaks on iOS 5 beta 1:


  • iFile
  • CyDelete
  • OpenSSH
  • iSHSHit

Not Working

  • MobileSubstrate
  • Springtomize
  • PhotoMail
  • ActionMenu
  • Celeste
  • BiteSMS
  • WinterBoard

The new beta is Mac-only, and if you’re a developer interested in checking out whether your Cydia app is working on iOS 5 beta, you can download it here.
