How TO Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Using Redsn0w

Well well well, after the release of iOS 5.0.1 by Apple, earlier today, folks over RedmondPie tested the last version of Redsn0w on iOS 5.0.1 and confirmed that Redsn0w can tethered-jailbreak the final iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Actually it's an old tool so you will jailbreak your iDevice and will connect it to your computer to boot using Redsn0w whenever your iDevice is switched off or rebooted, yes you can use SemiTether to jailbreak your iDevice with this iOS 5.0.1, your iDevice will boot but will not function to a satisfactory degree until connecting your device to Redsn0w.

Important Notes:

  • iPhone 4S and iPad 2 not supported
  • If you want Untethered jailbreak please stay away!
For Unlockers Only:

  • For those of you who unlocked iPhone 4 using GEVEY SIM interposer, you should create a custom, IPSW which will preserve your baseband.
  • To active this, you should open Redsn0w, hit “Extras”, then “Custom IPSW” then point REdsnow to your iOS 5.0.1.
  • Finally, open pwned DFU mode and select:
(Extras > Pwned DFU) and restore to your custom firmware via iTunes. Once complete, you’ll be able to unlock your device with GEVEY once more.

Getting Started

1- Download iTunes for Mac or Windows .
2- Back your device up through iTunes.

3- Update your iDevice to iOS 5.0.1

4- Download Redsn0w for Mac or Windows.
