Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 with Sn0wbreeze v2.8b10 [Windows Only]
For users who want to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 and are concerned with baseband, sn0wbreeze is now at your disposal.
Earlier this morning, ModMyi reported that Apple released a second beta for iOS 5.0.1 to developers via an over-the-air update or the Apple Developer iOS Dev Center. In the post, it was mentioned that the current version of redsn0w (0.9.9b8) was able to jailbreak this beta as long as you point to the previous 5.0.1 IPSW file. Chances are the iPhone Dev-Team will update redsn0w to alleviate the need to point to the old IPSW file, however no new version of redsn0w has been released yet. Nonetheless, sn0wbreeze has been updated to do so.
iH8sn0w tweeted out just a few moments ago that he has updated sn0wbreeze to support iOS 5.0.1 beta 2. He graciously provided a changelog which can be read below:

- For iPhone 3GS iPad baseband users (06.15.00), make sure to re-flash the iPad baseband via sn0wbreeze if you restore(d) to a stock 5.0 firmware.
- There is no jailbreak for the iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time.
sn0wbreeze is a Windows only tool and can be downloaded below:
Note: If you're currently on iOS 5.0.1 beta 1, jailbroken, and want to update via over-the-air, you must restore to a stock firmware first. It will not work if you try to update over-the-air while jailbroken.
Semi-Tether by BigBoss is confirmed to work on this firmware.

I wonder how long will it take for the untethered version to be released, that will be when I will buy myself the 4s.

Blah, every time I see a headline that says "Jailbreak", I think oh please be an untethered iOS Jailbreak.

what's the different between tethered and untethered? i know that they will jailbreak your devices. one doesn't need a pc and the other needs it.

@glacius7..From my understanding tethered means if you power down your phone you have to plug it back into your computer on power up. Non tethered dont have to plug back in every time. This is my limited understanding. Hope it helps.

I once went 3 weeks with the iPad 1 without restarting because of tethering. I even went on vacation without my main computer. Not smart, but no problems. Won't do that again.
Let's go iPad 2 !!! I still haven't upgraded!

I Just a quick question I have iPhone 4 gsm on ios 5 I use snowbreeze to jailbreak after install I found by complete accident that if I don't launch cydia I can use iOS 5 untethered this way I can use iOS 5 until untethered jb comes out I've done this since 4.3.3 and was wondering if anyone else has discovered this was aware of this?It still preserves my baseband I can use iOS 5 but preserve unlock baseband until untethered jb comes out sucks I can't get jailbreak stuff but at least I get ios 5
