  • 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.

      You guys do NOT need PwnageTool if you guys are on windows.. just use redsn0w go to "extras -> create custom IPSW" that will be a preserved base band. Then go into PWNED DFU mode and then shift / command + restore and select the custom IPSW you just downloaded and bam, you have just preserved your base band so now all you need to do is jailbreak it via redsn0w.
      I assume that you got a software unlock working? I've always used PwnageTool for my unlocks, and never had a problem. The activation isn't working, so I'm building one last IPSW and gonna try that, and then I'll jump on Windows if need be to try your method. Thanks

      EDIT: Okay just tried hactivating through the PwnageTool again and it didn't work. Jumped on Win7, ran redsn0w, but didn't see any option in Extras to hactivate the phone. Only see the option to build custom firmware. Anyone know a way to activate non-AT&T sims??

      Ok I'm just curious if anybody has had similar results. When the untethered exploit first released I updated (actually restored) from 5.0 to 5.0.1 and then jail broke with redsn0w untethered software. After the jb I basically couldn't use Cydia. They say it's because of all the server traffic, but I'm not sure that's correct. Since I was having issues I decided to restore again to 5.0.1 and then I used redsn0w 0.9.9d9d (tethered) and then yes I was having SOME server issues, but I used Corona and then refreshed Cydia and all my BigBoss and Modmyi packages showed up. I did the same thing in the same order with my finances i4 as well and I got the exact same results both times. Is anybody else having these results as well? My iBooks doesn't work but ifile and openssh worked fine as well (before update).
      ???????????

      If your tweaks aren't working, re-install MobileSubstrate, many report this fixed tweaks.

      if you are not jailbroken on iphone 4 5.0.1, would the best option be to use newest version of redsn0w to tether jailbreak, then install cydia and add the corona patch?

      I did a few things, I will explain step by step what I did on XP. Hopefully one of these steps will help you fix the problem:
      1) Updated Windows with KB2492386 update.
      2) Restarted the computer after update(don't do this if you didn't install the update).
      3) Downloaded redsn0w 0.9.10b2 from iPhone-Dev blog, and extracted the files.
      4) Right clicked on redsn0w.exe, clicked on compatibility tab, and check the "Run this compatibility..." checkbox, and chosen "Windows 2000".
      5) (THIS IS THE IMPORTANT STEP TO FOLLOW) - Opened redsn0w.exe, then clicked on CTRL, SHIFT, and ESC to open task manager. On the task manager I clicked on "Processes" tab. Scroll down to redsn0w.exe, and right click on it.
      5a) Select "Set Affinity" and make have all the check boxes checked. Click on OK.
      5b) Move mouse over "Set Priority", and choose Realtime(which is the top, and highest priority). A messagebox warning about system instability will appear. Just click on "Yes".
      6) Now select redsn0w on the task bar, and perform the jailbreak.

      since pod2g is working on the jailbreak for 4s on 5.0.1, my 4s is currently on 5.0 but I wont get it back until next week. I do have SHSH blobs saved for 5.0.1, so if Apple does update to 5.1 and does not sign 5.0.1 anymore, will I still be able to update to 5.0.1 using Apple's stock firmware?

      FINALLY!! The solution for the msvcrt.dll crash in the latest Redsn0w.exe jailbreak!
      I was using Microsoft XP SP3, but ALWAYS got that crash. The affinity and realtime thing neither helped.
      My fix:
      1) download msvcrt.zip from Free software download, freeware and shareware at Softandco.com
      2) extract and place the msvcrt.dll in the same folder as redsn0w.exe.
      3) Start redsn0w.exe, everything should run smooth now!

      I did it over the tethered, jailbroke it, rebooted phone worked perfectly. Thanks to all involved it works perfectly.
      Plus everything i had installed on the tethered were still there with the untethered.

That reboot is not like a normal reboot, and it worked perfect on an older iPod Touch 4G which I updated from 4.3.1 to iOS 5.0.1 and then jailbroke. But this new one always reboots properly with apple logo and then to lockscreen/battery charging screen.
      I tried a full restore, 3 different computers, different settings (XP compatible/admin run) for redsn0w, but every time redsn0w starts it reboots fully.
      I jailbroke the old iPod Touch 4G, a iPod Touch 3G and my 3GS, each time without a problem - apart from empty sources in Cydia due to server overload.
      Anybody any idea why this brand new iPod Touch 4G can not be jailbroken with redsn0w?

      EDIT:
      I used Win7 32 bit and 64 bit.
      Got it sorted now!
      I have added the 5.0.1 ipsw file in redsn0w-beta3 and then it worked first time, without problem.
      I never had to do that with the older ipt4G, ipt3G or ip3GS.

      Thanks for the advice and help if there had been any!

      I did the jb and all of a sudden my app store icon disappeared? How do you get that back? Much appreciated.

      Sorry ignore. I figured it out. When I updated Sprintomize it had a setting to hide app store and it came with the upgrade... just need to untoggle it...

      So pretty much if the iphone 3GS is older than week 35 and it's on 5.0.1 it cannot be unlocked?
      The warning is for newer, not older, iphone 3gs'. I have an older 3gs that the unlock did not work after I updated to 5.01, so I went back into Redsn0w and re-jailbroke the phone while re-flashing my baseband. Worked like a charm, I was then able to unlock the phone once again

      i'm on 5.0.2.. am i screwed? or can I downgrade?
      (i know i know i shouldn't have upgraded but when i tried to upgrade to 5.0.1 i just missed the window and apple was no longer signing)

      I've jaibroken my iPhone and three of my friends with this new jailbreak. Couldn't be simpler. I did have to remove some of the sources in Cydia and then re-add them before Cydia would work properly. Other than that it's been smooth sailing.
