    Default How To Jailbreak Your iOS 5 Device On iOS 5 GM Using RedSn0w 0.9.9b2/0.9.9b3


    It was mentioned earlier today that Apple will be rolling out iOS 5 for anyone with a supported iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch on October 12th. The iOS 5 Gold Master is already available to Apple Developer accounts though and furthermore, developers can also jailbreak it.

    The iPhone Dev Team hasn’t yet released an official update to the RedSn0w jailbreak utility to support the latest release yet but MuscleNerd previously confirmed that you can use the recently updated RedSN0w 0.9.9b2 for Mac or Windows to jailbreak iOS 5 Gold Master. You will need to specificy the IPSW you want to chose and you should point it towards the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW for now – until the new version of RedSn0w is out.

    Remember that this is a tethered jailbreak, which means if you reboot your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad – you’ll need to connect to a computer via a USB cable and run Redsn0w again OR lose your jailbreak.

    You can follow our step by step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 5 GM using RedSn0w 0.9.9b2 below, but first you will need to make sure you have the following things:

    • iOS 5 GM
    • The iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW for your iOS device
    • The latest version of iTunes (iTunes 10.5 beta 9)
    • RedSn0w 0.9.9b2 for your appropriate OS (Mac or Windows)

    Update
    RedSn0w 0.9.9b3 was released - this guide is still viable, just read the update at the bottom of the post before continuing below!

    The process is more or less the same whether you are using Mac or Windows. In this specific case I am jailbreaking an iPhone 4 GSM on Mac.

    How To Jailbreak Your iOS 5 Device On iOS 5 GM Using RedSn0w 0.9.9b2

    Follow the steps below to jailbreak your iOS device:

    (If you have iOS 5 GM already installed please skip to Step 2, if you do not, start at Step 1)

    Step 1: Download and install the iOS 5 GM onto your device by Holding Option and clicking Restore in iTunes, then selecting the iOS 5 IPSW and clicking Open.

    Step 2: Download and place the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW and RedSn0w 0.9.9b2 at a convenient location.

    Step 3: Now start RedSn0w 0.9.9b2, click Extras, click Select IPSW, then point RedSn0w to the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW(refer to the screenshots below):







    After selecting the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW, you should see the following screen:



    Step 4: Go back to the main menu for RedSn0w and now hit Jailbreak, make sure Install Cydia is checked off, then hit Next (see screenshots below):





    Step 5: You will be asked to make sure your device is turned off and plugged in, please make sure this is the case then proceed by clicking Next. RedSn0w at this point will give you instructions to follow to successfully enter your device in DFU mode (see screenshots below):





    At this point your device should have scrolling white text initially and afterwards you should see the familiar RedSn0w pineapple logo with the current state of your iOS device. Just be patient and shortly after your device will successfully be jailbroken.

    Step 6: Before you proceed, if you check your Cydia icon, you will see there is a blank icon for it. You need to successfully boot one last time. To do this, go back to the main menu on RedSn0w while keeping your iOS device plugged in and hit Extras, then click Just Boot. Follow the instructions to enter DFU mode one last time and it will successfully boot.





    Voila! You are done! You have just successfully jailbroken your iOS device on iOS 5 GM.

    If you have any questions or issues, feel free to drop a comment below!

    Update

    Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 was released (updated on our previous post as well). It now auto-detects the IPSW - no longer do you need to point at the beta 7 IPSW. So you can follow the same procedures with the exception of having to point toward the iOS 5 beta 7 IPSW repeatedly. Download links for the updated version can be found below:

    Forgot to include that, just edited it in. Good catch / comment! Thanks Javiert30!

    I also just added in a list of compatible iOS devices to further clarify for everyone!

    If iTunes gives you 16xx errors while updating to iOS 5 GM, remove the previous update files from iTunes library and try again.

    I believe it is 4S only.

    Yes you need a developers account to legally obtain the IPSW files.

    For future reference you should search for a post that discusses the topic you have in mind and post there instead, but to answer your question, Siri is an iPhone 4S exclusive feature.

    is there a 10.5 beta 9 for Windows? I am only getting .dmg files... I assume this is ok to post here since it is part of the requirements for the topic being discussed.

    Maybe someone can help. I've downloaded the latest redsn0w (0.9.9b2) and my iPhone 4 is running iOS 5 GM currently. Every time I "Select IPSW" and point it towards iOS Beta 7 for iPhone 4 GSM it says it isn't recognized. I've redownloaded iOS Beta 7 3 times now from 3 different places.. Any ideas?

    Remove previous update files (iOS) from iTunes update folder, once removed, install iOS 5 GM

    Make sure you downloaded the right firmware GSM or CDMA or for another device if it is right...
    You can try too if not tried yet, put your iPhone in DFU and try to update from iTunes.
