  • iOS 5.1 Patches Corona Untethered Jailbreak: Update to iOS 5.0.1 While You Still Can!

    Want an untethered jailbreak? Don't Update to iOS 5.1.

    The recent untethered jailbreak for A4 devices and the upcoming untethered jailbreak for A5 devices will only be for iOS 5.0.1. It has been confirmed that iOS 5.1 beta 3 closes the exploit for the Corona untethered jailbreak - yes that includes the redsn0w 0.9.10 jailbreak because it uses the same exploits found by iOS hacker pod2g as Corona does. iOS 5.1 is currently in beta, and will be released to the public very soon.

    If you want your untethered jailbreak for iOS 5, then we recommend that you stay with iOS 5.0.1, or you update to iOS 5.0.1 if you have not already as soon as you possibly can. Since iOS 5.1 closes the exploits used in iOS 5.0.1 with the Corona untether, more exploits will need to be found to jailbreak iOS 5.1 untethered. A4 devices will likely have a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 at least, because of the fact that A4 devices have a bootrom exploit. A5 devices on the other hand, won't be so lucky. A5 devices also currently have no way to downgrade firmware, so again I emphasize, if you want an untethered jailbreak then get on iOS 5.0.1 while you have the chance!

    If you are an A4 device user and you have your APticket and SHSH blob custom firmware for iOS 5.0.1, then you can update to iOS 5.1 to try it out when it comes out with the security that you can always downgrade again. iOS 5.1 will bring few new features to iOS such as the ability to delete individual photos from your Photo Stream, and the ability to toggle 3G on the iPhone 4S. It is also said to have indefinitely solved the battery crisis on the iPhone 4S. If you feel that these features are worth losing an untethered jailbreak over, then go ahead and make the leap of faith.

    If you are using an A4 device and you want to secure your position in iOS 5.0.1, then you can follow our guide on making a custom iOS 5.0.1 firmware with iFaith. It was written for iOS 5.0 but it will be the same process for making an iOS 5.0.1 firmware. You can also use TinyUmbrella and redsn0w to make custom firmware if you're not a Windows user. Good luck!

      Hey guys, I'm a noob still on this JB stuff even though I've done quite a few. Have a quick question, sorry if it sounds dumb.

      I'm currently running
      iPhone 4 on 4.2.1(8C148) BB 03.10.01
      SHSH Blogs: 4.3.3, 4.3.4, 4.3.5, 5.0.1

      I have quite a few tweaks in place from the JB. and have it setup just the way I want. E.g. Theme Teknologik, etc.

      If I go up to 5.0.1 how will this effect my current setup, apps, Tweaks, SBsettings etc? It took me a ehile to get it where I want it and don't want to lose options or tweaks that don't operate on iOS 5.0.1 like "live Clock" which when installed on a JB 5.0.1 crashes it.

      I know you guys will have the answer, haven't steered me wrong in the past.

      I also have a 4s on 5.0.1. Considering getting rid of it for a 4.
      iPhone on stock iOS just ain't the same without the JB.

      Why get rid of 4S? The jailbreak will be here at some point. As for your other question, when you restore to 5.0.1 you will lose your jailbreak and all tweaks. If all you're worried about losing is live clock I really don't know why you wouldn't take advantage of all the great options iOS 5 (5.0.1) gives. It's worth the update. Seriously. There are some incredible themes for ios 5 (Dark Hollow by FIF7Y, Prestige HD, Etc...) you can still use themes that are not ios 5 ready and use programs like iFile or ifunbox to get into the files and change icons, folders, BG's, etc... I understand you're a noob at this but it's not as difficult as it seems. You can also use programs like package backup to backup all your Cydia packages. Then after your new jb you download package backup again and open the app and hit restore, it will then install all the packages you currently have on Cydia. I never had a lot of luck with programs like that but they do work. Just follow the directions. I think you'll be much happier with this untethered 5.0.1 exploit. If not you can always go back if you have the SHSH blobs.

For all the other devices you can save your SHSH and apticket to restore to 5.0.1 with iFaith or tiny umbrella.
      I just upgraded my ipad2 from 4.3.3 to 5.0 and then again to 5.0.1. By your account I already have done the impossible. Then I downgraded back to 4.3.3 and rejailbroke. Is there something about 5.1 that I missed?

      5.0.1 ok but which build ?
      I have 9A405 and there's a 9A406 out there ...
      9A405 doesn't work with tinyumbrella for saving SHSH but that's the one Apple gave me when I updated firmware ..

      So, outside of potential battery fixes, are there any "killer" features in iOS 5.1? I ask because I have been living this long without jailbreak. I may consider just going jailbreak free (although probably not, I have a list about 20 items long that I cannot wait to add to my 4S once the jailbreak launches).

Now before you flame me I understand the display is larger on my iPad 2 but the battery lasts forever compared to my 4s. I will give up the battery fix for a untethered jb and hope their is a jb tweak eventually that fixes the battery issue.
      Yes, that is horrible. I would also say atypical, to the point that I might even have Apple take a look at the phone. You shouldn't be losing more than a couple % overnight. I get texts and emails coming through personally and lose anywhere form a piddly 3% to a "whopping" 7% overnight. While I realize my experience isn't necessarily indicative of the whole, losing 74% while your phone is supposed to be idle for the majority of the time is simple unacceptable.

      I say, live your life however you want it and stop waiting for the jailbreaks. Jailbreaks really mess up your phone and "pc free" isn't really pc free when you can't restore cracked apps from iCloud, is it? Any way , happy jailbreaking fellas!

      Wait... I always thought that if you have the blobs saved for 4.3.3 or less, you can always downgrade to that version. So you can upgrade to 5.0.1 and if you want, downgrade back to 4.3.3 at any time.

      Did I miss something?

      That is the case for everything but the CDMA iPad 2 and iPhone 4s.

      I just came back from overseas and the data plan for 2GB is equivalent to $1.10 after conversion. We have the most expensive rates here!!

      I have a 4S and haven't had any issue and I know others who likewise haven't had any battery issue. This makes me wonder if some of the batteries used may actually be defective. Remember, Apple isn't using just one single source for a lot of their parts, but spreading them across several, so it may be that one of the supply runs contained defective batteries, and either Apple doesn't want to acknowledge it yet (possibly they are still tracing it.)

      My reasoning is this: if this was a firmware issue, it would be effecting everyone with that firmware (the 4S's 5.0.x firmwares in this case.) Since it's only effecting a subset of 4S users, all of who have a 5.0.x firmware, then the difference must be hardware (defective battery, or perhaps another related component.)

      Like I said earlier, it's still unknown whether sbsetting 3G toggle will work on the 4S. Since iOS for the 4 include the toggle of course it will work. iOS for the 4S does not include the toggle and since there is no jailbreak for the 4S yet we don't know if it will work.

      if I use it all my Cydia apps tweaks will be backed up BUT what about those tweaks and themes etc that I had to edit and mod myself. Will it preserve what I have done or will I have to do it all over again?? 5.0.1 does have nice feature I admit but don't wanna redo all the work I've done. Thanks.

      Once there is a jail break for the 4S, even if it doesn't work initially, I doubt it will take long for a new version to come out that does. My main reasoning is, that the toggle for 3G in SBSettings does not automate physically going through Settings -> General -> Network .... -> 3G toggle, but more likely does so programmatically, so as long as the underlying handler for toggling 3G still exists, it shouldn't be a problem.

      I believe Siri is the reason for the no 3G toggle on 4S, Siri demands to be connected at all times unless off. But I digress...

      As many have pointed out, no reason to upgrade until 5.1 has reached GM status. Even then, I personally plan to upgrade to 5.0.1 on the same day that 5.1 is officially released as I did with all the previous "evil" firmware releases.

These days JB'ing adds some value, but none that you can't live without. I appreciate the work these guys do but for me the Jb magic is fading. Yes I may JB when it's released but it won't stop me from upgrading and fixing issues that are important to me, and also give me a more reliable device. I think a lot of people JB as they think it's cool not because they have an actual use for it, or more than likely to pirate apps. Of course there are people who have a genuine need for it and will use the added functions/features that a JB can deliver.
      I would not be able to give up my jailbreak because of ExchangeUnlock. It sucks having to type in a password every time I get an email...which is a ton because of the department I work in.

      I jb for a lot of reasons. First, I can't stand the stock iOS GUI. I think it's ugly as hell so I have to theme it (themes by FI7TY). Second, must have My3G, MyWi, SBSettings, BiteSMS, Infinidock, Gridlock, FolderEnhancer, and many other tweaks that we should have the capability of doing. If it wasn't for jailbreaking I wouldn't have an iPhone I'd go to android.
      I couldn't have said it any better.

      When you go into Cydia for your favorite apps, it will let you know if they work on 5.0.1. Some of mine didn't so I have no problem staying on 4.3.3. I was on 5.0.1 but with the tweaks I had too many of them were glitchy and I didn't like it so I downgraded.

      A great backup program is PKGBackup. It is well worth the money. Saves a ton of time

      I have done the same thing with getting non iOS 5 themes, iOS capable. So I'd hate to lose all those files. You can get ifunbox and then get into your device just like you would iFile. You can backup all those files onto your pc, after you rejb your device on 5.0.1 (download openSSH from Cydia) then you can use those backups. Just put them back from you got them. I do it at every new jb or if I have to restore/rejb my device. And yes all your Cydia tweaks and packages will be backed up but the files you customized in themes.xxxx will not be backed up unless you back them up yourself on your pc and reinsert them yourself. It's really not difficult. If you want help walking through while you're doing it PM me and we can set up a time to join on messenger or something. Or if you have TEAM VIEWER I can remotely access and show you how. Whatever you prefer.
