Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Tethered / Semi-Tethered On iPhone iPad & iPod Touch


by casey on November 3, 2011

Previously we have updated you about the latest iOS 5.0.1 release by Apple to fix iPhone 4S battery issues along with some other bugs. The firmware is in its beta that means only for the developers right now.

This news is intended for those developers who have or will upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 on their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. 5.0.1 jailbreak is possible with Redsn0w, confirmed by iPhone Dev Team’s key member MuscleNerd.

Of course its a tethered jailbreak solution and you can use Semi Tethered jailbreak by installing the package from Cydia.

Let us clear the confusion that iOS 5.0.1 firmware release is intended for iPhone 4S/4/3GS, iPad 1/2, iPod Touch 3G/4G. BUT the jailbreak is for all devices EXCEPT for iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

This is what the iPhone Dev Team has updated:

Redsn0w version 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta that Apple let developers start testing this week (so you don’t have to play the “point at 5.0 IPSW” trick).  Because the IPSW isn’t public, you’ll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).  

For those 3GS and i4 users who preserve their baseband, the Mac version can also produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSWs for 5.0.1.  (But please note that ultrasn0w doesn’t get updated for betas like this.)

This is still a tethered jailbreak for all except old-bootrom 3GS users.
