  • 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.

      yes you can either use new redsn0w over previous just uncheck install cydia or there is a cydia tweak that will allow you to apply the untether over the tether if you're on 5.0.1

      Updating to 5.0.1 on a A5 device is safe - the jailbreak isn't being held back by the iOS software at the moment - it's the hardware structure of the A5 chipset holding it back.

      Updating to 5.0.1 won't block a jailbreak on an 4S or iPad2.

      Just don't update beyond 5.0.1 if Apple releases one in the next few days, which will probably happen now that the A4 jailbreak has been released.




      I just hope this A4 jailbreak doesn't screw us A5 people over.

      I personally would have held it back until the A5 untether was also up and running.

      I mean, why tip your hand to Apple before you have ALL iOS devices jailbroken? Just a little concern I have. Might not be any big deal.

      I have a question, hopefully someone can help me out. I started downloading the 5.0.1 ipsw through iTunes and the file says it's 800 mb which will take me around an hour to download... Instead can I just use OTA updating, update my phone and just do a fresh restore and jailbreak?

      Just wondering if that will f*** me over at the end?

      Thanks

      Im on iphone 4, 5.0 tethered with an older baseband, which is the right way to do mine? Can i just instal corona 5.0.1 untethered? Or should i do a full itunes restore to 5.0.1 and then use latest redsnow?
      Thanks

      I just want to make sure I have this right:
      I am still on 4.3.3 and I am going to update. I have the custom ispw file. I have to install that to update to 5.0.1, then use redsnow?

      I want to preserve my baseband since I am on 1.59.00. (I have been using Greenp0sion and Snowbreeze (since Snowbreeze gives you the option to preserve your baseband.) I have never used Redsnow before. Does Redsnow keeps your baseband like Snowbreeze? Or is the Dev Team or Chronic Dev Team is going to push the jailbreak into the other tools like Snowbreeze or Greenp0sion? Should I wait? Oh, and my SHSH has been updated on Cydia to 5.0.1.

      Thanks for any help.

      And of course, thanks to all of the people involved in this effort, especially pod2g for his work.

      Just one question before I install the Corona package... Do I need to remove my SemiTether package first?

      Thanks

      Im curious about the OTA update then running the new Redsn0w as well. Will this work? Also, If doing a restore then running RS, will I have to install the Corona patch or is the patch just for the tethered 5.0.1 users?

      Can someone clarify?

      Edit: So after reading some pages on the interweb, update to 5.0.1, use RS to JB, load Cydia and install Corona. But...can the update be done OTA?

      I would and have because he posted about it working and getting the bugs out awhile ago. Unless I was wrong but I swore I read that.
