Just moments ago, iphone_dev on Twitter announced the release of the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for folks, the real untethered jailbreak is here. This only works for A4 devices, so we are still waiting on a jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but if you have one of the devices listed in the title, you can now jailbreak your device untethered on iOS 5.0.1.

Pod2g says on his blog:

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.

The jailbreak is available via Redsn0w, which can be downloaded here. Stay tuned for a tutorial, and subscribe below to be notified of any developments.

    awesome! my 4 is now jailbroken! Thanks pod2g !!! AT first, my mail icon was a white box and my cydia only had a limited sections & it couldn’t “find” the program. Rebooting my phone made a big difference. So, if you’re having problems, just reboot and see what happens! Thanks to the person who said to reboot! [:

    pls help my iphone is stuck on apple logo and just loops. i really need help please

    • BenSchmidt

      @laur_reyes Did you jailbreak it? The only thing that I can think of is a jailbroken app installed on your idevice that is causing the loop. Remove that app via i-fun box and bam, you’re good to go.

      @laur_reyes You could just bee in the Recovery Loop, i had that with my 3GS a couple of times. Download Tinyumbrella and hook your phone up and put it in DFU mode, open tiny umbrella and you should be able to hit the “Fix recovery” button. Hope that worked!
