iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Released for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch, iPad

Pod2g has been working solo on the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A4-powered devices and finally figured it out. He passed on his completed work to the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team to test and distribute. That day has finally come, as announced by @pod2g:

Hello, as expected, the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on my work.

It is exactly the same set of files, either distributed as a Cydia package for those that are already tethered or a redsn0w bundle for new users.

They both did a great job testing and integrating the payload.

Here is a link to their respective blog posts :

Happy jailbreaking !!!


This does not work for A5 devices like the iPhone 4S and iPad–pod2g is working on that right now.

So both the Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team have different methods released to apply the new jailbreak. We’re going to document each jailbreak separately to ensure clarity. Well done to @pod2g for his incredible work on this! He deserves a donation.
