  • Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 with Sn0wbreeze v2.8b10 [Windows Only]

    For users who want to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 and are concerned with baseband, sn0wbreeze is now at your disposal.

    Earlier this morning, ModMyi reported that Apple released a second beta for iOS 5.0.1 to developers via an over-the-air update or the Apple Developer iOS Dev Center. In the post, it was mentioned that the current version of redsn0w (0.9.9b8) was able to jailbreak this beta as long as you point to the previous 5.0.1 IPSW file. Chances are the iPhone Dev-Team will update redsn0w to alleviate the need to point to the old IPSW file, however no new version of redsn0w has been released yet. Nonetheless, sn0wbreeze has been updated to do so.



    iH8sn0w tweeted out just a few moments ago that he has updated sn0wbreeze to support iOS 5.0.1 beta 2. He graciously provided a changelog which can be read below:

    Out of all the information provided, here are key points to remember:

    - All iOS 5 devices are still tethered while jailbroken with the exception of the iPhone 3GS old bootrom
    - For iPhone 3GS iPad baseband users (06.15.00), make sure to re-flash the iPad baseband via sn0wbreeze if you restore(d) to a stock 5.0 firmware.
    - There is no jailbreak for the iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time.

    sn0wbreeze is a Windows only tool and can be downloaded below:

    sn0wbreeze v2.8b10

    Note: If you're currently on iOS 5.0.1 beta 1, jailbroken, and want to update via over-the-air, you must restore to a stock firmware first. It will not work if you try to update over-the-air while jailbroken.

    Semi-Tether by BigBoss is confirmed to work on this firmware.

      Applications/tweaks are not reliant on jailbreak tools; it's firmware related.

      I wonder how long will it take for the untethered version to be released, that will be when I will buy myself the 4s.

      seems like new firmwares are being chased so much the untethereds are taking a backseat

      what's the different between tethered and untethered? i know that they will jailbreak your devices. one doesn't need a pc and the other needs it.

      @glacius7..From my understanding tethered means if you power down your phone you have to plug it back into your computer on power up. Non tethered dont have to plug back in every time. This is my limited understanding. Hope it helps.

      That's right. That's a reason why everyone wants an untethered JB. They don't want to go thru the hassle of rejailbreaking. Especially if there's no computer near them.

      Although technically you are rejailbreaking. This does not mean you will lose any settings or downloads. Just a a couple minute process and your back how it was before you switched it off.

      Also respring as much as you like. You won't need a computer afterwards.

      I once went 3 weeks with the iPad 1 without restarting because of tethering. I even went on vacation without my main computer. Not smart, but no problems. Won't do that again.
      Let's go iPad 2 !!! I still haven't upgraded!
