    Default Run PwnageTool for an untethered JB on an iP4 (already tethered 5.0.1 via Redsn0w) ?
    The Dev Team Blog mentions how to use redsn0w and that it can be run over a PwnageTool jailbreak but doesn't say if PwnageTool can be run over an ios5.0.1 tethered iP4 JB'd with redsn0w.

    Since the iP4 I'm talking about is currently tethered on 5.0.1 via Redsn0w (unlocked with Ultrasn0w & 1.59.00 BB), which step should be used next to untether :

    1- Add Corona via Cydia? It's not working. It says "Sorry, your device/ios version is not supported". Don't know why if it's an iP4 on 5.0.1

    2- Run PwnageTool again over it and include Ultrasn0w in the Custom Package crating the new Restore ipsw?

    3- Forget PwnageTool and run Redsn0w to create a new No-BB ipsw, clean restore to it, then JB with either one (PwnageTool or Redsn0w) all over again and then add Ultrasn0w?

    pwnage tool will not run over the top of any jailbreak like redsnow does. It creates a custom firmware and you restore to that. Pwnage tool is mainly for unlockers looking to preserve their baseband. What you can do is use the latest redsnow and choose the jailbreak option first then choose none of the options after. THat is what is meant by running it over the top of a tethered jailbreak.

    pwnage tool works differently. It doesnt run over anything. It makes a custom firmware that you restore to in itunes.
