Ever since the release of iOS 5, the iPhone Dev Team has been releasing constant updates to its redsn0w tool, and another update has made its way out. redsn0w 0.9.9b7 isn’t a major update by any means, as its main purpose is to speed up the jailbreak process by disabling the “stashing” of applications, although this can be re-enabled in redsn0w’s Preferences pane. If left disabled, the stashing process will take place when a user launches Cydia for the first time instead, so although this update saves time during the initial jailbreak, the process must still be completed afterwards.
Disabling the app stashing process in redsn0w speeds up the jailbreaking process by 60%, from 210 seconds down to 80 seconds. However, as I mentioned, those who leave stashing disabled in redsn0w will have to make up this time during Cydia’s first launch on their iDevice(s). No other new features are reported in this release, which is available now for both OS X and Windows. You can read the official update notes from the iPhone Dev Team as well as notes for past releases on their blog post.
