  • 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.

      Does anyone if we should update iPhone 4s and iPad 2 before we lose the 5.0.1?

      I now regret selling my iphone 4 last month to get an iphone 4S. The untethered jailbreak 5.0.1 for iphone 4 tool (redsn0w) STILL uses the SAME limera1n exploit from GeoHot. Having said that, I am not expecting an untethered jailbreak 5.0.1 tool for iphone 4S anytime sooner.

      I keep having this issue when i try to JB using the new redsn0w. I get into DFU mode, it starts the sequence, but once it gets to the step "waiting for reboot", the apple logo comes up and it ends up just starting up like normal and redsn0w freezes. Idk what i'm doing wrong.

      yes you should but its up to you
      Once apple rolls out 5.1 firmware you are stuck to update to 5.1 since apple will not be signing 5.0.1 firmware
      but again, its up to you to decide lol

      personally, i would if i owned a 4S or a iPad 2

      i had that before while doing tether jailbreaks for 5.0.1
      i just rebooted my comp and inserted the cable to a different usb port, then it worked fine after lol

      I restored to 5.0.1 from 5.0 and set up as a new ipod 4g, I downloaded the latest redsn0w linked above ... it said uploading stage 1, stage 2, waiting for reboot.. device reboots... no cydia, no nothing.. it's not jailbroken ..

      Any clue what's going on here?

      What confuses me is that pod2g stated that the only issues he had with the A5 was with hardware caching which was resolved with dev team's help but now it seems like he doesn't have anything....I'm not complaining it's just confusing.

      patience go to be ultimate virtue!!!!

      I hope you ip4 users choke on your phone....j/k
      Well I'll trade my iPhone 4 for your 4s. It's jailbroken! =D

      Updated to iOS 5.0.1 and did the untethered jailbreak but tweaks like, multiflow, barrel etc arent working properly!

      Just updated my ip4 to 5.0.1 from 5.0 and untether JB went well but now I have a grey cydia icon? ive tried rebooting but its still grey?
    1. xFURxBURGERSx's Avatar
      xFURxBURGERSx -
      Note that these tweaks aren't working due to the tweak saying it depends on things like libhide>=2.0.4 but this cannot be automatically corrected or fixed so you can only queue! HELP

      Unfortunately it didn't work Everything is OK on my device but I still have to boot tethered as the untethered did not hold. I guess it's no good on 5.0 and must require 5.0.1. Here is the the message I got when I was done....

      NOTE: The jailbreak for this device is currently *tethered*. This means in order to make use of any JB programs, you *must* use the "Just boot tethered right now" option of redsn0w every time you reboot the device.

      Even if you've just applied the jailbreak, you must now go back and just boot "tethered".

      To everyone asking if they should update there 4S to 5.0.1. The answer is yes as that's the version pod2g is working with, he's already stated this. If you don't update and Apple release 5.1 your gonna be screwed. Do it, I did.
