  • 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.

      Thanks to all the devs that put in so much hard work at this, especially to ipod2g for his exploits and thorough work. Jailbroke my i4, now patiently waiting for my 4S to be jailbroken. Cheers guys..

      Lemme make sure because the way it's worded. This is available for iPhone AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4 correct?

      For those who are somewhat blind enough to read that this jailbreak is ONLY FOR 5.0.1 and NOT 5.0, like myself, you will get an error message as follows.

      Will follow OP's instructions to get to 5.0.1 then jailbreak.

      Can someone clarify?
      If you are not jailbroken and running 5.0 you can OTA update and run redsnow. If you're on 5.0.1 already and jailbroken go to cydia and install corona

      Hi,

      Earlier I was using the tethered jailbreak with ultrasnow 1.25 on my 3GS with Ipad baseband and everything was perfect but when I did the Untethered jailbreak I'm getting "No Service" in the carrier and not getting any signal where as in Settings-->General-->About it is showing the carrier name.

      Please help guys....@Pod2g looking for this to fix....hope you have tested this before releasing it...
      found in google that some other people also got this issue..

      I didn't used Corona jailbreak but I used Redsnow Jailbreak

      Do help me guys!!!
