  • 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.

      This untethered has kill ibooks for me. How do I fix it?
      I was tethered jailbroken via Snowbreeze and booted with Ibooty and iBooks worked fine.
      I installed Corona and now iBooks no longer works on either iPhone4 or iPad.

      How do I fix iBooks?

      BTW, SEARCH here doesn't work so I had to ask instead of search for the answer. If you fix search I would use that.

      Awesome. I've about decided the ability to mirror my iPad2 to the AppleTV was worth losing the jailbreak (both have to be on the latest firmware to do the mirror thing). If I get to rejailbreak the iPad2 soon then that'd just be gravy.
