    Default Jailbreak iOS 5 Public Release with Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze


    With the public version of iOS 5 out in the wild, the jailbreak community is wondering whether this new build can be jailbroken. According to a recent tweet by iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w), tethered jailbreaking the new version is possible with either redsn0w 0.9.9b4 or sn0wbreeze v2.8 beta 8.



    From what he mentioned, the public release of iOS 5 has the same IPSW file and build number that was seeded to developers previously. This is what makes it possible to jailbreak the newest version with the current tools.

    Note that redsn0w is available on both OS X and Windows while sn0wbreeze is Windows only. In order to preserve baseband, you must use sn0wbreeze as redsn0w does not have that capability.

    Here are the download links below:

    redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Mac
    redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for Windows
    sn0wbreeze v2.8 beta 8 (Windows only)

    Reminders:
    • There is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 that is available yet
    • It is not possible to jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time

    For those of you that may use ultrasn0w or a Gevey Sim, please heed this information from MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) which was posted on Twitter earlier:

    Now that iOS5 is out, JBers with GSM or CDMA iPad2 baseband should get back down to 4.3.3 before the signing windows shut.

    (Actually that applies more to i4 unlockers who rely on Gevey...get back down to BB where Gevey works before you no longer can)
    Update: MuscleNerd also confirmed that the current redsn0w beta will jailbreak the public iOS 5 firmware.

    Now I just have to wait for a way to continue to preserve my Baseband on my Old Bootrom 3GS, so I can update it & then sell it to get my 4S

    I'm so happy I'm in the UK and got my iPhone 4 fresh and unlocked not having to worry about basebands.

    It means you dont have to run the jailbreak again every time you reboot the phone.

    It means that if your device kernel panics and you need to reboot you don't need a computer to rejailbreak to boot back up. I for one did the tethered jailbreak once and when my phone rebooted and I was without a phone for a whole day I said I would never do a tethered jailbreak again! Not for me.. untethered only or no jailbreak.

    Does anyone know or has tried if it is possible to use the latest Snowbreeze or Redsnow (or both?) to do an UNtethered jailbreak on iOS 5 public release on the old bootrom 3GS?

    I think this was possible with snowbreeze on iOS GM as I remember there was even a separate update to snowbreeze so that it could make iOS 5 beta/GM untethered on the old bootrom 3GS?

    Question, if I use the tethered jailbreak now can I use the untethered jailbreak on top of it once it is released? Or must I reinstall ios 5 then jailbreak?

    I agree, except for "removed". I think that was rude. I do wonder when the iPad 2 JB is going to be released.

    Unfortunately i have no choice but to upgrade. My iPad keeps locking up or just restarts on it's own. Tried to restore to 4.3.3, couldn't get it to restore.
