    What make you so sure? It could just be another plain ole tethered jailbreaking tool.

    This, you CANNOT do.

    And also, you cannot UPGRADE to iOS 5.0. Apple no longer signs it.
    What are you talking about? My whole point was that he doesn't have to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1. He can go online and download the ipsw file and restore to it. He is still on 4.2.1, and hasn't upgraded to 5.0.1.

    My end consensus, he will not be able to get onto iOS 5.0 as he was asking to do. Whatever you're saying doesn't appear to be on the same page as what I am explaining.

    You need to read my other article about it. They will be implementing a remote jailbreak application into it.

    What makes me so sure? I spent the whole morning reading about the jailbreak tool on their Web Site so that I could write two articles about it.

    I know you can't do this clean, but couldn't you cook a custom sn0wbreeze IPSW file and put the device through iReb, then do the shift+restore method using the custom sn0wbreeze IPSW? This way, the device would be on iOS 5 and already jailbroken tethered, wouldn't it? I was under the impression that when restoring using a custom firmware Apple's verification methods were not employed. I hope I don't sound stupid or disrespectful, because I certainly know that you know much more about this than I do A.B.. Just my "2 cents" ...if its worth that much....

    iOS 5 doesn't use SHSH blobs anymore, so custom firmware is useless.

    Ac1dsn0w breaks copyright laws and for that, all links have been broken and removed.

    +1. Custom firmwares aren't a replacement for lack of SHSHs. They're used to preserve basebands, and restore/upgrade+jb both at the same time.

    Regarding this article...I have to say, it's disappointing. Yet another tethered jb tool, just with a different name. Well hopefully with more devs and more tools, there will be a better likelihood of getting that untethered jb. Keep up the good work devs!

    You cannot update/downgrade/restore to 5.0 anymore. Apple is not signing 5.0 anymore and SHSH in their current form do not work (yet) on 5.0+

    I've heard some cool stories in my time. This one is probably the coolest, bro.

    Yawnzor. Just what we needed. Another tethered jailbreak for old phones and iPads.

    Edit: Yikes. Looks like its a sloppy "me too" that violates copyright laws as well!

    (Anyhow, redsn0w doesn't need the IPSW for each tethered boot either..it fetches the images from Apple's servers once and then caches them.)
    That's interesting, because I'm needing to use the iOS 5.0.1 B1 developer IPSW to boot my phone despite the fact I've got the public version of 5.0.1 installed. I didn't think redsn0w was updated past 9.9.8b8

    If you actually read the instructions you would know that you should be pointing 5.01 at the 5.0 ipsw as the advice was not to upgrade to 5.01 - for everyone that followed the advice RS does not need an ipsw.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    that's funny, I never knew that one can DOWNGRADE from an old firmware to a new one. he's still on 4.2.1, therefore it WILL work for him to UPGRADE to 5.0.
    Listen Captain Jailbreak. This is a form about the iPhone, where people criticize and comment on the iPhone. I don't see you telling people to go build their own iPhone, because maybe they aren't happy with a feature or two.

    It's a valid point that there doesn't need to be 13 different variations of "ra1n" or "sn0ws". There is just no reason for it. Secondly 5.0.1 corrects the battery issues that's been draining batteries like they were a box of koolaid. So no it's not such a "minor" update.

    I read the advice and upgraded because I care more about battery life than an untethered jailbreak - when your battery life only drains 1% over three hours when the device is in standby mode, I'd rather take that over the minor inconvenience of needing a computer to boot my phone every three months. Also, the fact still remains that you need to point it at an IPSW to boot this software version when using Redsn0w.

    Don't be condescending and assume that people don't know what they're doing.
