  • Untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak for Non-A5 Devices Released



    @pod2g has released the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for non-A5 devices.

    Let that marinate for a minute. Take a deep breath. Start downloading.

    The long awaited untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 has been highly anticipated and extensively chronicled with every little bit of news making headlines in the Jailbreak community. Recently @pod2g handed off his hard work to both the iPhone devteam and chronic devteam.

    “A few days ago, @pod2g gave the untether to both the iPhone devteam and the chronic devteam. We’ve put it into redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and the chronic devteam put it into a Cydia package (the same set of exploits is in all three)” — iPhone devteam
    Here’s how to finally get the untethered jailbreak:


    • The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G
    • If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now! The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1 If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW! See the guides at places like iClarified.com if you don’t know how. Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
    • If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam. The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
    • Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration. If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup! You will most likely get into a reboot cycle. Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether. — iPhone devteam
    While the iPhone devteam doesn’t accept donations they’ve put a link at the end of redsn0w allowing jailbreakers to donate directly to @pod2g who is almost solely responsible for providing this jailbreak to the world.

    While an extremely large portion of the iDevice jailbreak community can finally rejoice in an untethered jailbreak, a growing portion of A5 device owners (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) still aren’t able to jailbreak their devices. Thankfully @pod2g is hard at work on an A5 device jailbreak, and as always follow @pod2g on Twitter or check his blog for updates on his progress.

      Sorry but you haven't been here long enough to have a valid opinion on this issue. We've been doing this for 4 YEARS, not 4 months. We created this system the devs and hosts use and they ALL get kickbacks. Saurik will never have to work again, some jailbreak devs make many thousands in a month of sales on their releases. I mean I'm not going to sit here and explain the entire commerce rotation while you sit on your soap box and howl. Anyone who has been here any amount of time can see through that and understands how the money flows around the community. No soup for you.

      Everytime I try to update my phone it gets stuck at the last stage...saying it's error #21...and I'm not able to update. I have to go to TinyUmbrella and exit recovery mode to make my phone usable again...but it just goes back to iOS 4.1.

      Any suggestions? Should I restore and update, or just update?

      Verizon i4. 5.0.1, i used redsnow through my macbook, popped into DFU mode, and i got the Downloading Jailbreak Data... screen with the harddrive/green arrow icon. it was on that screen for about 25 minutes before the phone finally started booting. when it finally booted, no Cydia. i rebooted again with the "Just Boot" option, still nothing. any ideas how to get Cydia?

      Thank you!! Worked great. Only thing i saw was this version of Redsn0w broke iBooks again, where as the last version fixed it. Weird.

      What does the hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 mean?

      I have a tethered 5.0.1 now. In order to get to this state I used itunes to upgrade to 5.0.1... then using redsnow i pointed to the 5.0 firmware to jailbreak.

      Does this mean I am hybrid and i need to do a fresh restore?

      Yes, they do it for free but my donations plus many others allows the jailbreak to be developed. Do you donate anything to the Dev Teams? Stop kissing there back side, us A5 device owners have every right to voice our disgust. I think its more obnoxious to previously see the A4 users complain they do not have an utethered jailbreak, when us A5 users have no jailbreak at all.

      The only reason why you currently have a jailbreak is because you can not afford an iPhone 4S. Quit your bickering, you had more than A5 users have up until this morning.

      Hi I have 3 iPhones a 4&2x3gs the 2 3GS have the iPad baseband and with the new untethered jailbreak it often won't restart and just sits on the apple logo! Have waited upto 45mins and still no reboot! But reboots fine when just boot is used! Any ideas if this is a bug or some thing I have over missed?? The iPhone 4 seems fine boots around 1min

      Personally, I feel piracy has taken a deep root in this community and devs/creators don't actually get what they deserve anymore. I'm not sure I could put in the time that some devs put in creating the magic they do.

      Oh and being a small 'community' means we could do without people with a stick up their *** sitting on their high horse. Don't be a jackass. Put your point across but don't forget your manners.

      I just used the new redsnow to jailbreak my iphone 4. Do I need to download corona to make it untethered?
