These days Untethered Jailbreak is a very hot topic and every one is after the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4, iPod 4, iPod 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S, iPad 1 and iPad 2. Those who got A4 chipped iDevices and lower are always on safe side. Rather than people owning A5 iDevices are not yet with any luck. People owning A4 chipped and lower iDevices are on safe side because these iDevices have been PWNED for life and can be Jailbroken Tethered on any firmware. Where as, people on A5 iDevices are not with any luck so far because Apple has equipped a whole new processor and made it little bit difficult to Exploit the Hardware.
It doesn’t matters, how hard Apple tries to put people away from the Jailbreak, every time with the release of new iOS update, there is a bug which leads to Jailbreak and starts the cat & mouse game. Now, with the release of iOS 5.0, there was a bug found by Charlie Miller, which could lead to iOS 5.0 Untethered Jailbreak. Unfortunately; Apple patched the bug in its new update of iOS 5.0.1. After the update of iOS 5.0.1 people started to loose hope in the hackers and some of them updated to iOS 5.0.1 to fix the battery drain issues. But, those who updated to iOS 5.0.1 are still facing the issues. So Apple is seeing the issues once again in its new update of iOS 5.1.
The iOS 5.1 Beta 1 was released few weeks back for Developers only. So the new Beta might be around the corner. Before Apple released iOS 5.1, @Pod2g luckily found a new bug in iOS 5.0 which leads to an Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4, iPod 4, iPod 3 and iPhone 3GS. He demoed a video few days back showing the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 on iPod 3. At the time he demoed the video about the Untethered Jailbreak, he was not sure if the exploit would work on iPhone 4 or not.
So today @Pod2g confirmed that it is safe to update to iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4 because the bug he had found earlier is also working fine on iPhone 4.
Got an untethered iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1. Feel free to update.
After hearing this news, every one must be damn excited and willing to update. So before you plan to update to iOS 5.0.1 make sure that you are not doing it via iTunes. If you do it via iTunes, you will be locked on iOS 5.0.1 because iOS 5.0 got a new baseband which is not yet unlockable. This warning is for those who rely on an Unlock. If you rely on an Unlock, So you follow the guide from here and preserve your old baseband and update on iOS 5.0.1.
