  • Pod2G Has An iPhone 4 On iOS 5.0.1 With An Untethered Jailbreak

    Feel free to update. We guarantee you that your iOS 5.0.1 A4 device will be untethered.

    Earlier this week I reported that Pod2G said that the iOS 5.0.1 firmware (which is the current iOS 5 firmware) would be able to have an untethered jailbreak. As of tonight, less than an hour ago, Pod2G has confirmed that he has an iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1 with an untethered jailbreak. This means that you are safe to update to iOS 5.0.1 and you will be able to have the Chronic Dev Team's untethered jailbreak. You do not need to stay on iOS 5.0 to have the untethered jailbreak.

    This takes the load off of a lot of people's shoulders because many were concerned that the only way to have an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak was to stay on iOS 5.0. Many rushed into using iFaith to save their APtickets and SHSH blobs to built custom iOS 5.0 firmwares to be able to restore back to iOS 5.0 whenever they would have to. Now, those of you who did so can take a deep breath and simply update.

    This comes with some good news. Since iOS 5.0.1 can have the untethered jailbreak as well as iOS 5.0, you won't need to install any tweaks to get rid of the OTA (Over The Air) badge and additionally, iOS 5.0.1 closes some security exploits which means that iOS 5.0.1 will be more secure. The choice is yours, but I would rather just update and have the fresh jailbreak when it comes out.

    Will you be updating to iOS 5.0.1 now that you are guaranteed an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak? Share in the comments below!

      Yes u can just tell it to save your SHSH with TinyUmbrella now and it will save 5.0.1 to since Apple is signing it then download it through a side website but don't install it

      Also, does the new TU that saves 5.0+ Blobs+APTicket work for A5 devices? I saved 5.0.1 blobs for my iPad 2 does that mean the APTicket saved also and I can restore using that later?

They just really shouldn't even bother releasing anything tethered. It's a waste of everyone's time unless you have no job and stay home all day.
      Tell you what sport, how about you make your own jailbreak? OR don't install things off cydia when you're at work.... You're not very smart are you?
      Just because you're to dumb to have a teathered jailbreak doesn't mean the rest of us are.

      Just say its unlockable that's what I did and since the guy was from Russia he read it as sayin unlocked sold my iPhone 4 16gig tethered jailbroken for $350 +$50 ship lol

      It's not a lie cause every iPhone is unlockable the software just hasnt been released or made yet even if it takes them 50 years it's still unlockable lol

      And how can I tell if my favourite tweaks work on 5 ??
      I love Lockinfo
      Icall Announce
      Five icon dock
      Five rows & colums
      And of course SB settings

      Can anyone confirm that these work on 5.0.1 before I jump and then I'll wait for the JB so I'm untethered.

      Thanxx in advance.

      Jolly
      I am on a semi tethered JB IOS 5.0.1 and have all those tweaks that you have mentioned except for the Icall Announce and it all works for me, no problem at all

      Easy there rkswat. This is a forum not a roast. It's supposed to be helpful and promote intelligent discussion about these things. What good is it to get all uppity? You could get rid of at least half the posts on here if you erased all the negative ones.

      I miss 4.3.3 untethered but the iOS 5 native features won me over with that said I've had to tether boot about 7 times although semiTether did allow me to use my phone and text while away from my computer. The tethered boots were my battery drained normally without a charger being close by.

      I may just update just to get the iOs 5 native features.

      Good question. MuscleNerd tweeted that the 5.0.1 TU would save blobs and APTickets, but since the version of redsn0w that stitches these all together with the ipsw doesn't exist yet, we can't confirm this as working for A5 devices. Anybody out there got any knowledge of this?

      They've showed ways around the sim lock on the 4s. The only company that won't unlock the gsm radio is AT&T. Everyone else will do it for you after a month or so good standing.

      Wait so does that mean that if your on AT&T and u jailbreak it to say Verizon that they will unlock it for you?

      I updated to 5.0.1 and it worked for a bit. Now my phone is stick on the boot screen and I can not reboot the phone to restore it. Any ideas. I was using the latest version of redsn0w. Tried rebooting with redsn0w and nothing. Just stays on the loading screen. I also tried jailbreaking it again and it gives an error on the screen. Need advice on hoe to restore back to factory settings.

      Possibly it just depends on the csr you get. You can use an AT&T locked iPhone on Verizon I believe. Since the unlock is only for gsm (sim) radio and Verizon uses the CDMA radio.

      I was able to figure it out. I posted in the redsn0w thread.
