Jailbreak iPad with redsn0w 0.9.9b9b

Redsn0w 0.9.9b9 will not jailbreak the iPad 2 (or iPhone 4S), but will work for every other supported Apple device. The iPad 2 can ONLY be jailbroken on iOS 4.3.3 using JailbreakMe 3.0, with pod2g diligently working toward a new untethered jailbreak.

Here are the step to utilize redsn0w 0.9.9b9b for your iPad or iPhone:

Step 1: Download redsn0w 0.9.9b9b for Windows (here) and Mac (here)

Step 2: After you've completed the download, run redsn0w 0.9.9b1 by double clicking the redsn0w.exe file in the RedSn0w folder.

Step 3: Click the 'jailbreak' button and install Cydia on your iPad. For iOS 5 Beta: Choose 'Select IPSW' to jailbreak iOS 5 beta firmware

Step 4: Ensure your device is off and plugged in, follow the steps to put your iPad into DFU mode in redsn0w.

Step 5: While in DFU mode, redsn0w 0.9.9b1 will begin to jailbreak your iPad. It is best to not interrupt it or use your computer during the jailbreak.

As before, firmwares above iOS 4.3.3 you will need to use the "just boot" button to jailbreak your iPad each time it loses power. But at least your iPad is still jailbroken.
