Finally! Untethered Jailbreak Solution for iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch


For those who were looking for untethered jailbreak solution for you iOS device. I has finally arrived. For iPhone 4S and iPad2 user, this guide is NOT for you. This guide is using Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 that I got from Try at your own risk.


After showing the first method to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered using a jailbreak tweak from Cydia, now we’re showing how to do an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak directly from your PC or Mac using Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 brought to you by the iPhone Dev Team.

Jailbreak 5.0.1 untethered

iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Supported Devices

  • iPhone 4 (GSM – CDMA)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPad 1


  • If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now!  The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1  If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW!    Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
  • If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam.  The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
  • Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration.  If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup!  You will most likely get into a reboot cycle.  Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.

    across a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  12. Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Kudos!
