"redTool now comes in a variety of flavors due to it’s functionality, which now covers more than just jailbreaking. redTool is offered in 3 formats. You can get in in .Rar and .Zip formats for those of you that like to keep things simple with no installation required, or you can get the new Installer version of redTool which will do a simple installation for those that want it to be a bit more traditional. The Installer may come in handy for those who don’t want to accidentally delete their logoManager libraries as well. Here are the links to the most current builds. All of which, now include the brand new redTool Updater."
