iOS 5.0.1 can be Jailbroken Using Redsn0w 0.9.9b8

Apple earlier today released iOS 5.0.1 to the public for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. Just like previous releases – iOS 5.0.1 can be jailbroken using the latest version of the iPhone Dev Team’s tool, redsn0w.

Jailbreak 5.0.1
The new software, iOS 5.0.1, can be jailbroken using redsn0w 0.9.9b8 and the SemiTether tool can be used on iOS 5.0.1 to bring semi-tethered jailbreak.
Supported devices for the below guide:
  • iPhone 4 (semi untethered)
  • iPhone 3GS new bootrom (semi untethered)
  • iPhone 3GS old bootrom (untethered)
  • iPod touch 4G (semi untethered)
  • iPod touch 3G (semi untethered)
  • iPad 1 (semi untethered)
Of course the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreaks are not yet available. If you’re looking forward to fast & future jailbreak, better not upgrade to iOS 5.0.1.

Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Semi Untethered:

STEP 1: Download iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5.0.1 final version.
STEP 2: Backup your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and restore it using the iOS 5.0.1 IPSW file downloaded from the first step.
STEP 3: Download Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 for Windows or Mac OS X from here.
STEP 4: Open Redsn0w and select “Extras” then “Select IPSW” and browse for the iOS 5.0 IPSW file (download here).

STEP 5: Now click on “Jailbreak” then “Install Cydia”. You’ll need to follow the on-screen instructions to get your device into DFU mode.

STEP 6: Once jailbroken, your device will be rebooted.
STEP 7: Now open Redsn0w again and hit “Extras” then “Just Boot”.

STEP 8: Now head to Cydia then search for “SemiTether” and install the tool:
NOTE: The last step about SemiTether is optional for users. It will allow you to reboot your device without need to a computer to connect to. You’ll lose some functions like opening mail and almost all jailbreak tweaks.
