  • Jailbreak iOS 5 Public Release with Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze


    With the public version of iOS 5 out in the wild, the jailbreak community is wondering whether this new build can be jailbroken. According to a recent tweet by iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w), tethered jailbreaking the new version is possible with either redsn0w 0.9.9b4 or sn0wbreeze v2.8 beta 8.



    From what he mentioned, the public release of iOS 5 has the same IPSW file and build number that was seeded to developers previously. This is what makes it possible to jailbreak the newest version with the current tools.

    Note that redsn0w is available on both OS X and Windows while sn0wbreeze is Windows only. In order to preserve baseband, you must use sn0wbreeze as redsn0w does not have that capability.

    Here are the download links below:

    redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Windows
    sn0wbreeze v2.8 beta 8 (Windows only)

    Reminders:
    • There is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 that is available yet
    • It is not possible to jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time

    For those of you that may use ultrasn0w or a Gevey Sim, please heed this information from MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) which was posted on Twitter earlier:

    Now that iOS5 is out, JBers with GSM or CDMA iPad2 baseband should get back down to 4.3.3 before the signing windows shut.

    (Actually that applies more to i4 unlockers who rely on Gevey...get back down to BB where Gevey works before you no longer can)
    Update: MuscleNerd also confirmed that the current redsn0w beta will jailbreak the public iOS 5 firmware.

      You need to boot tethered with redsnow. It is a tethered jailbreak.

      Not that I can think of. They seem to be exactly the same.

      So I want to update to iOS 5 I'm currently jail broken on iOS 4.3.5. It's tethered, so there won't be a difference in the tethered problem, but will I lose all the tweaks annd settings that I have on my iPad now by updating and re-jailbreaking?

      I'll just patiently wait for the untethered version of Snowbreeze. No need to get excited over this.
      But its great to know that the jailbreak experts are on the case. Before you it, Apple will put out an update (just like they did when the I4 came out last year.

      iPhone 4 jailbroken on iOS 5. Not a lot of tweaks out yet. Winterboard is sorta working. Still needs more work. So I'm pretty much running like if it were stock iOS 5. Nice new features so far. Gonna try it for the rest of the week see how I like it, if not, I'll go back to untethered 4.3.3

      Yes.
      You'll lose all the JB tweaks and settings, for sure.
      If you update with iTunes you should be able to keep your Apple apps and settings though.

      Ok i have a question that has probably been answered because I'm a moron and didn't read that i had to save something to cydia in order to restore my phone to normal. I JB my iPhone 4 on 4.3.5 using redsn0w. My question is can i restore to unjailbroken 4.3.5 or iOS 5 using tiny umbrella or something else because i keep getting the "incorrect build" message every time i try to restore. thank you in advance for the help =)

      ok, your updating directly from itunes, or using a build you already downloaded elsewhere you can restore directly to 4.3.5 or update to 5.0 to my knowledge

      ok so every time i try to restore it gives me the "incorrect build message" and I'm afraid of updating iTunes to download iOS 5 because i don't know if the 10.5 is safe with my JB...

      I know winterboard is still kinda funky, but anyone else having it crash springboard? Right after I installed and rebooted, my springboard does a loop crash report. I had to uninstall.

      EDIT: Iconoclasm crashes ios5 as well.

      Make sure you do a tethered reboot after your first initial jailbreak.
