It is finally here! The long awaited iOS 5.01 untethered Jailbreak is finally launched by dev-team. @pod2g has been telling us that untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 was almost ready a few days ago, and just a few minutes ago, they launched redsn0w 0.9.10b1 for both Mac OSX and Windows.

iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users can finally jailbreak their devices. Here’s the catch, it is for all iDevices other than A5 chip devices, thus iPad 2 and iPhone 4S can’t be untethered jailbroken yet. Sorry guys, you have to wait awhile more.

Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 is coming soon [Video]

Chronic Dev Team is almost done with their very last part of touching up with iOS 5 Jailbreak. It has been close to 2 months since the launch of iOS 5 and iPhone 4S, but till date, only tethered Jailbreak is available.

If you don’t know the difference, tethered Jailbreak means that everytime your iPhone got restarted, you have to connect it to a computer and go through the jailbreak process to boot up the iPhone. Thus untethered Jailbreak is actually very important to most people, as we are worried we won’t be with a computer when our iPhone accidentally needs restart.

Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.

So it seems that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users will have to wait awhile longer than the rest of the family to enjoy untethered jailbreak.

Check out the demo of untethered jailbreak from Chronic Dev Team:


GreenPois0n for iOS 4.2.1’s Loader do not have cydia, Solution here!

GreenPosi0n untethered Jailbroken, but can’t install Cydia via Loader

I’m not sure about you guys, but after I do the untethered jailbreak with GreenPosi0n for iOS 4.2.1, GreenPois0n’s Loader did not have Cydia. Meaning I can’t install Cydia! So how can you install Cydia after jailbreaking with GreenPosi0n for iOS 4.2.1?

Redsn0w will fix the Cydia Issue on GreenPois0n

The solution is after you have jailbroken with GreenPosi0n, install Cydia with latest Redsn0w 0.9.6! Don’t worry about it as your jailbreak will still be untethered, but you will be able to get Cydia on your iPhone rather than wait for GreenPois0n to update their software, which we don’t know how long they will take.

Steps to jailbreak and install Cydia:

Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch as per previous blog post on Greenposi0n untethered jailbreak.

Step 2: Check if your Loader is working, if you can’t install Cydia with Loader, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Download Redsn0w 0.9.6 here

Step 4: Open up Redsn0w, select the ipa for your iDevice.

Step 5: Check on the “Install Cydia” option, and proceed with the jailbreak.

Step 6: After Redsn0w is done, wait for the reboot and there you have Cydia installed, plus have your iPhone untethered Jailbreak.

I have successfully installed Cydia via the steps above, let me know if you face other issue with the new GreenPois0n jailbreak.
