  • iOS 5.0.1 Apparently Not Fixing Battery Issue for Some

    Apple rolled out iOS 5.0.1 today to fix battery problems.

    This morning, Apple released iOS 5.0.1 to fix the battery issue that users had been complaining about since upgrading to iOS 5. The fix apparently didn't work for numerous people. Apple's support forums were flooded with complaints saying that the update did nothing to fix the battery problem. The volume of users reporting the problem is undeniable proof that the update didn't do much to fix the dilemma. As of this moment, iOS 5.0 is still being signed and I personally recommend downgrading back to iOS 5.0 so that you will be able to have the untethered jailbreak when it is out. iOS 5.0.1 fixed numerous exploits that jailbreakers could have taken advantage of. Earlier in the week we reported on how Pod2g warned us not to update because of those exploit fixes.

    Below is a screenshot of some consecutive complaints about iOS 5.0.1:



    So with iOS 5.0.1 having sketchy support for battery problems and plugging up many potential jailbreak exploits, why upgrade? I would say just stay on iOS 5.0 until the untethered jailbreak rides its way out of the garage. It's coming we just don't know when. iPhone 4S users who don't even have a jailbreak yet are also advised to stay on iOS 5.0 because if a jailbreak does surface, there are more exploits in iOS 5.0 than iOS 5.0.1 and anything that Apple will release in the future. If you don't plan on jailbreaking at all, then disregard iOS 5.0.1. It looks like this update was a failed attempt to update the battery problem and it would be a waste of time to install.

    Take a moment to answer the poll (only viewable in the forum version) and leave a comment below!

      Try putting iDevice into DFU mode then (alt-click) "Restore" and select a downloaded 5.0 ipsw. I did this last night and got 5.0. Heres a video I made showing the 3002 error then putting iDevice into DFU mode and restoring to 5.0!

      Ya I upgraded and downgraded with iOS 4 and up to Beta 7 on iOS 5 just wasn't sure if official iOS 5 not being signed would be different since tiny umbrella not letting you save them

      Haven't upgraded to 5.0.1 cause I wasn't sure I could go back to iOS 5 after if I didn't like 5.0.1 for jailbreak reasons

      I did DFU but then got another error code but then some weird things were scrolling down my screen, until it said giving up so i opened TU and unplugged phone, plugged back in, and it got back to normal on iOS 4.3.3

      Alt click restore? I did shift click restore. A difference?

      What is error code 11?? I didnt see it on itunes??

      I was not having battery issues as much as other people. Decided to upgrade anyways... Regret it because now my battery life is actually WORSE than the stock OS

      I am actually upgrading, not downgrading (from 4.3.3 to 5.0). I rechecked my hosts file, and it actually was pointed at Apple, I deleted this line, and Apples servers signed 5.0, and let me upgrade to 5.0 from 4.3.3. At least I believe they did, since it did install. Yay!

      Only problem is...once I got 5.0 installed, and tried saving my SHSH Blobs, using tiny umbrella, and Cydia, neither would work. I find this strange since I was able to get 5.0 installed no more then 20 minutes before. Is it possible Apple stopped signing 5.0 in this short time frame? Or could it be something else that is not allowing me to save my 5.0 SHSH Blobs?

      I'm happy I at least got to 5.0, just scary not having the blobs.

      Has anyone been able to save 5.0 blobs today? 11-11-11? Sounds like a good date to release a untethered jailbreak if they have one ready!

      It's not ONLY the iPhone 4S. I've had battery problems since updating to the iOS 5 on my iPod. I noticed the difference on the first day of having iOS 5.

You can put a laptop in hibernation and remove the battery for any amount of time and when you power back up Windows will still be right where you left off. Apparently you been a MAC fanboy for so long you have no idea how PC's work. Perhaps you should read up over on the Wiki before you continue to make yourself look like an idiot.

      Hibernation (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Man and you're a staff writer for this site?? hahahaha wow no wonder your members are so obtuse! Then again I guess simple people are needed for such a simple site
      You have no idea how wrong you are; and using Wikipedia for a source, you should be ashamed. In order to write to the hard disk drive from the RAM, the hard disk drive must be spinning and the RAM must be powered. So it will continue to use power as long as it needs to dump that memory. To back up my point, that is post-clicking hibernation mode. So it's all part of the process.

      That was fast lol. Unfortunate to those stuck on iOS 5.0.1. MuscleNerd confirmed that the untether will only be for iOS 5.0 for now.

      Sure was fast. Apple usually gives a couple days or so. Not this time it seems.

      They must be really adamant on killing the jailbreak as fast as it comes out.

      And this is why the dev team shouldn't be releasing jailbreaks for beta software.

      Dev team have never released any jailbreaks for beta software that wasted a exploit.
