by cM Boy on December 28, 2011

Earlier we updated that untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak developed by Pod2g has been released.  iPhone Dev Team released Redsn0w 0.9.10 while Chronic Dev Team released “Corona Untether” both for iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak on all devices other than iPad 2 and iPhone 4s.

iPhone Dev Team has also released PwnageTool 5.0.1 for un-lockers to get untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak while preserving baseband.

Remember you can also preserve your baseband with Redsn0w by going to “Extras => Custom IPSW”. If you ask us, PwnageTool was not necessary as the same custom firmware functionality is also offered by Redsn0w. Too many tools confuse a lot of newbies. Anyways there are people who still find comfortable with Pwnage Tool so follow the guide below.

Remember this is a Mac only tool. Its alternative for Windows is Sn0wbreeze that will get updated soon. By the way you dont need to wait for Sn0wbreeze as Redsn0w can also do the same thing that both these tools can do.
