    Just curious why new version is out? Is it any better than previous versions, if you have already jailbroken?

    Answers to your questions are at the dev team blog where they nicely explain the changes in each and every update.

    Update #5: redsn0w version b5 incorporates yet another fix for iBooks, this time involving DRM. @planetbeing wrote a utility called “crazeles” that overcomes jailbreak detection by iBooks that would cause about 10% of images to show incorrectly. This fix is similar to the “hunnypot” fix that @comex wrote for the 4.x jailbreak. As usual, you can choose to install the fix either by re-running redsn0w over your existing jailbreak (de-select Cydia if you do that), or by installing the corona package from Cydia (it’s the same set of files no matter which way you choose).

    Should I just run Absinthe v0.3 over my current jailbreak?

    Also, I don't think Absinthe give you the option to deselect Cydia.

    Please advise. :confused:

    No don't, it's the same jb no updates inside the jb!

    from the maker's blog:
    "Don't reapply if your 5.0.x device is already jailbroken as it won't change anything.

    The untether payload is exactly the same, only the computer part has been improved for stability issues."


    Not true

    NO, that is for devices that are not iPhone 4S, Absinthe is just for the 4S

    This is incorrect. Absinthe is for iDevices that use the A5 chip which also includes the iPad2.

    true, the A5 is on the 4S & the iPad 2, but we are talking about iPhones specifically in the iPhones Hacks Sub-forum ;)

    So if on an A5 jailbroken with Absinthe there is no need to rerun jb, but Corona 1.0-6/7 should be run to fix iBook issues?

    I'll visit the iPad Hacks forum and indicate Absinthe is only for the iPad2. :D
