by Megzuson Cell Phones, TechnologyJanuary 12th2 comments

There are two ways to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered. If you are already on a tethered jailbreak, you can just download a Cydia package, and if not you will just need to run Redsn0w on your computer.

NOTE: This will not work for the iPhone 4S or iPad 2, although those jailbreaks should be coming soon. Also, this will not work on iOS 5.0, so update to 5.0.1 before you try it.

Option 1: Already Jailbroken Tethered

If you already have a tethered jailbreak, just reload your data in Cydia and search for the package “Corona”.Install it and you jailbreak should now be untethered.

Option 2: Not Jailbroken

This will probably be the case for most people, and means that you have not had any jailbreak applied to your device. If this is so, jsut follow the directions below to jailbreak your device untethered. (video below)

Step 1: Download the latest version of Redsn0w (0.9.10b3) from  my servers here  Windows ,  Mac  . Or from  Jailbreak Nations Servers here.

Step 2: Open Redsn0w. You should see this screen:

Step 2 - Jail Break Iphone 4, 4s - ios5, ios5.01

 Step 3: Select “Jailbreak”. You should now be at this screen:

Step 3 - Jail Break iPhone 4, ios5, Rednsow

Step 4: Plug your device into the computer and turn it off. Then click “Next >”.

Step 5: Follow the on screen directions to put your device into DFU mode. Your screen should look like this:

Step 6: Let Redsn0w complete the process, and you should be done! Image below shows part of the process after this stage (Phone screen goes black and has lots of white text appearing, like MsDos or the Matrix).

What Is JailBreaking ?


Jailbreaking is a process that allows iDevice (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad)  users to gain root accesses to their device, taking down Apple’s harsh resections. Jailbreaking generally installs an app called Cydia that acts as a third party installer allowing users to customize their device with apps, tweeks, themes, and things not possible in the Apple App Store.
