With its ultra-low price of just $19.99, I can’t blame you if you’re seriously tempted to upgrade to Mountain Lion right here, right now. I know I am. But remember, while you’re system maybe Mountain Lion-ready, not all applications are. As such, you may want to check first if the crucial programs you’re using are compatible with Mountain Lion before hitting that buy button. RoaringApps is a good place to start.
As for you jailbreak aficionados out there, no need to hop on over there to see if redsn0w will work with Mountain Lion. It will, and none other than iPhone Dev Team confirmed it ( though if you don’t mind checking it out in RoaringApps pretty extensive list, you’ll be happy to know it’s listed there too).
Here’s the good news as posted over at the Dev-Team Blog:
“redsn0w is compatible with today’s retail release of Mountain Lion OS X 10.8. Until we start using an official developer ID for it (!), you’ll need to use the new Ctrl-Click-Open security bypass the first time you run it after downloading.”
Just remember that last bit there, you need to press Ctrl while you click on Open to bypass the new security feature of Mountain Lion. After you’ve done this when running redsn0w for the very first time, it should be smooth sailing from here on end.
As for the rest of the jailbreak tools – PwnageTool, Absinthe and company – no word yet if these’ll work without a hitch on Mountain Lion, but if not, I’m sure these’ll be upgraded to Mountain Lion standards very soon.
