Hello, I currently own an iPod Touch 4G iOS 5.0. I noticed that it states this jailbreak will work for my device and OS but I have tried multiple times to jailbreak and I just seem to get Redsn0w error and then it closes. After researching it seems that most jailbreak methods skip 5.0 and only work on 4.X and then jumps to 5.0.1. I rather not update my device to 5.0.1 and was wondering if anyone had any insight as to this problem or if it is even possible. Maybe this is just a misprint on site? Any help is much appreciated.

Why do you have to restore? Just upgrade and jailbreak.

I updated my ipod touch 4g to ios 5.0.1 and followed the guide to jailbreak using redsn0w. I pointed it to the exact same 5.0.1 firmware and it completed 'successfully'. It got to the point where it was on the pineapple with the headband and when it got to the moving applications part, it stood at that spot for a while and it shut off. After a couple of seconds, it went to the apple logo and shut off. It keeps repeating itself so i'm guessing im in a bootloop! HELP!!!

Not sure if Apple is still signing 5.0.1 for you to downgrade. You best go and get TinyUmbrella and save SHSHs. If 5.0.1 is still being signed, it'll save them for you. Then you can do a regular shift+restore in iTunes to restore to 5.0.1. If it isn't being signed then you can't restore to anything you don't have SHSHs for.

I did this but when it rebooted (waiting for reboot) it went right to the apple and not the white screen. I tried again and again but it still does the same thing.

Hi, I am still wrapping my head around this shsh thing so i apologize if these questions are a bit "noobish".. but basically I have a iphone 4 with 4.3.5 and BB 4.10.01.
-Will using the guide in the OP allow me to jb the phone keeping my BB and 4.3.5?
-If i want to get 5.0.1 installed with a preserved BB and also JB, how should I go about doing this? I do not believe I have shsh blobs for this phone.
