This post will walk you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 (UNTETHERED) and the best part is that thanks to the new utilities, you can be Jailbroken in a matter of minutes!
Steps (for Mac and PC users who aren’t Jailbroken already):
1. Download Redsn0w from the download section below and run it
- If you’re on Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you should right click Redsn0w and set compatibility to windows XP (service pack 2) and then run it as the administrator
2. Hit “Jailbreak” and enter DFU mode by following these easy steps:
a. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds
b. Continue holding the power button and start holding the home button and continue HOLDING BOTH for 10 seconds
c. Let go of power and continue holding home button until Redsn0w starts to exploit your device
3. Select install Cydia and any other options you want (except “Install custom bundles”)
4. Wait for it to finish and reboot (the video shows how long the process takes)
You now have an untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1!
Steps (for users who already have a TETHERED Jailbreak):
- Open the Cydia app on your tethered jailbroken device**
- Search for “Corona”
- Hit the “Install” button (as shown in the screen grab below)
Stay tuned for future Jailbreak tutorials!
