Untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak released for iPhone 4 and iPad 1; iPhone 4S and iPad 2 still coming soon

It’s taken quite a while but pod2g of the iPhone Dev Team has released an updated version of the jailbreak tool Redsn0w allowing users running the iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and 4G to jailbreak their devices without having to re-enable it every time the phone reboots. This untethered jailbreak is compatible only with pre-A5 devices, meaning the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are currently left in the dark.

There are a few provisos given to those trying to perform the jailbreak: you must have a compatible baseband if you wish to unlock with ultrasn0w, and you must save your SHSH blobs if you mean to ever downgrade again to 5.0.1 once an update is released. If you don’t understand anything in that last sentence, don’t worry, it probably doesn’t concern you.

The team also claims to be working feverishly to bring its first untethered jailbreak to the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but there is no timeline for its release.

Read all about the new endeavours over at iPhone Dev-Team and enjoy the new jailbreak.

    It was easy to jailbreak and get the Cydia. However, Cydia is not fully working yet! I will try to re-jailbreak!

    losers get on wind and leave the crappy ios where it belongs!

  • Rio

    Yeah except when I go to collingwood I will get charged away charges and when I go visit family in Quebec I won’t have signal. LETS DO IT

    Wind is only good if your staying within your zone, not everyone is lucky enough to be like you

    my iphone 4 was jailbroken once and i loved it… it froze, i went back through itunes and apple and back to square one with apple’s jail… have been reading that there is an untethered solution for ios 5.0… is there?

    i dont know how to do any of this… someone did it for me the first time and i’ll have to track him down again when the solution is available… is there a simple way to do this without knowing a whole lot about the firmware etc?

    i would love to have my iphone 4 jailbroken (safely) again 🙂
