The jailbreak community just released an untethered jailbreak solution for A5-powered devices, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1. In a blog post, the French hacker Pod2g revealed the name of the tool as Absinthe.



Now, the hacker p0sixninja tweeted that the tool is ready and the updated greenpois0n tool is now available for download. This means that iPad 2 and iPhone 4S owners can finally jailbreak their device without the need to tether it to a computer after a reboot.

iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Using Corona Guide

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Cydia, Download, How To, iPad, iPhone, Jailbreak, News, Tutorials


If you are currently operating an A4 device which has a tethered jailbreak you can use this menthod to update to full untethered jailbreak for iOS version 5.0.1 and for all supported A4 (& lower) devices!

You can quickly access, download & install Corona 5.0.1 Untether via Cydia store for your iPhone 4, iPhone 4 (CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G & iPod Touch 3G provided that iOS 5.0.1 being installed already by following the steps below:

  • Open the Cydia app on your tethered jailbroken device
  • Search for “Corona
  • Hit the “Install” button.

This package will allow your 5.0.1 device to install the untethered exploits and reboot without requiring an external tool like redsn0w, and without having to restore your device, so you get to keep all your apps, contacts, etc.

if you do not currently have access to the Cydia store on your 5.0.1 device, you can use the redsn0w 0.9.10 tool developed by the iPhone Dev team. It is exactly the same set of files as our Cydia package, but bundled with redsn0w for new jailbreak users and/or those who are not already running a tethered jailbreak.

If you have one of the A4 devices listed above and are not using iOS 5.0.1 yet, you can update your iOS version now (though you should not update to 5.0.2 when it is released, or you will lose your jailbreak) or you can wait a few days max for our Corona 5.0 Untether package, which will be available in the Cydia store upon release.

iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Using Redsn0w Guide

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Download, How To, iPhone, Jailbreak, News, Tutorials


This is a tutorial on how to perform an untethered jailbreak of your iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 using RedSn0w for Windows. The same steps for Mac version.

This procedure will cause you to upgrade your baseband. For those how rely on an Unlock must stay away from this and update using a custom ipsw.

Update #2: Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 released to address the iBooks issue for jailbroken devices.

Update #1: The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed).

iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Using Redsn0w Step-by-step Guide:

Step 1: Download the latest version of RedSn0w and 5.0.1 firmware from links below. No need to download the 5.0.1 firmware if you are already on iOS 5.0.1

Extract the Redsn0w zip file by double clicking it.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.

  • Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left.
  • Hold down Shift and click the Restore button. Navigate to the 5.0.1 firmware ipsw.
  • Click the Choose button to continue.
  • iTunes will now update your iPhone to the new firmware.

Step 3: Launch the redsn0w application (As administrator)

Step 4: Once RedSn0w opens click the Jailbreak button

Step 5: Plug your iPhone into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button.

Step 6: RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode.

Step 7: Your iPhone will now reboot

Step 8: RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data.

Step 9: Select Cydia from the list of options and click Next.

Step 10: Your iPhone will now be rebooted again and RedSn0w will begin uploading the new RAM Disk and Kernel.

Step 11: Your mobile is now jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard.

Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak Finally Released

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Cydia, Download, Hack, iPad, iPhone, Jailbreak, News


Untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices is now up. I’ll be putting a How to tutorial soon.

Many of you have already been following @pod2g’s blog where he’s been keeping everyone up to date on his progress.  A few days ago, @pod2g gave the untether to both the iPhone devteam and the chronic devteam.  The teams put it into redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and the chronic devteam put it into a Cydia package (the same set of exploits is in all three).

Here are the basic steps for how to get it:
  • The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G
  • If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now!  The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1  If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW!  Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
  • If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam.  The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
  • Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration.  If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup!  You will most likely get into a reboot cycle.  Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.

@pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices.  Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release.  Keep following pod2g on twitter or his blog for any progress reports!
