How to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta with Redsn0w


Apple released iOS 5.0.1 to developers yesterday and they fixed the battery issue, flawless iPad’s smart cover bug plus updated Siri. Jailbreak roots your device to become the real punk and the tethered is always usual to do and easy but the old bootroom folks always get the untethered jailbreak, for iOS 5 too (already running one) and the other device which have the new one they get tethered until and unless a specified untethered jailbreak is not released. Creator of Redsn0w, @MuscleNerd tweeted that the developer’s iOS 5.0.1 can be jailbroken.

To jailbreak your iDevice on iOS 5.0.1 follow the below steps:

Step 1: Download iOS 5.0.1 (developers) and ensure you have the public iOS 5.0 available as well. You download it here.

Step 2: Open RedSn0w 0.9.9b7 (download here) and select Extras > Specify Firmware > and point it to the iOS 5.0 firmware. It should identify the 5.0 firmware without error.

Step 3: Go back to the main screen of RedSn0w and place your device into DFU mode. Click Jailbreak, and then select Install Cydia.

Step 4: Your device should jailbreak, but your Cydia icon will be white due to it being a tethered jailbreak. Place your device back into DFU mode.

Step 5: Again, from RedSn0w’s main page, select Extras > Specify Firmware > and point it to the iOS 5.0 firmware. It should identify the 5.0 firmware without error.

Step 6: Select “Just Boot” from RedSn0w’s Extras menu, and it should perform a tethered boot on your device.

That’s it! you just jailbroke iOS 5.0.1.
