As reported yesterday with reference to the pod2g’s tweet that he is running 5.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, there came the question whether the new jailbreak will be applicable for all devices or not. Even some people commented that 5.1 iPhone 4S tethered is enough and no need for untethered.

Pod2g has beautifully replied to these people by saying “Don’t forget there are Apple TV3, 4S, iPad2 and iPad3 users out there! and lot of these users got 5.1 out of the box” So this statement clearly reveals to us that the jailbreak for 5.1 which pod2g is going to release hopefully soon, will surely be compatible for all idevices currently available in the market.

The new 5.1 untethered jailbreak will be compatible with:

  • iPhone 4S 5.1
  • iPhone 4 5.1
  • iPhone 3Gs 5.1
  • iPad 3 5.1
  • iPad 2 5.1
  • iPad 1 5.1
  • ipod Touch 3G 5.1
  • iPod Touch 4G 5.1

If you are willing to jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S now you can follow this tutorial but remember this is a tethered jailbreak for iphone 4S.

Read below tweets and guess yourself.

Good news for everybody waiting for untethered 5.1 jailbreak. Pod2g has successfully achieved the 5.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4. Earlier on 1st May 2012, pod2g announced that he has achieved the important exploits which will lead to untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1. The poll he launched was also demanding that he should release 5.1 untethered as soon as possible.

Now after the latest tweet from pod2g everybody (at least me) must be anxious to get the public version of ios 5.1 untethered jailbreak software as soon as possible. Although the previous claims of untethered 5.1 jailbreak were not released for public use but this time I believe that pod2g will fulfill his promise as always and the latest 5.1 jailbreak which is untethered will be released for public. I believe pod2g will be making the public version so that the same can be released.

The latest tweet from pod2g is very clear and shows the confidence level of  him since the iPhone 4 is running with 5.1 untethered jailbreak. I believe and hope that new 5.1 jailbreak will also compatible with iPhone 4S 5.1 untethered jailbreak and iPad 3 5.1 untethered jailbreak . Lets wait and see the actual stuff.

You can jailbreak iPhone 4SiPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad 1 and iPad 2 by using the latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8. The latest version is the improved one and provides extra feature of backing up your activation tickets. Also it provides Corona jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 if these are running 5.0.1. The new version of RedSn0w can be used to re-install the jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether. When stitching an IPSW, it can now grab your blobs directly from Cydia. It now shows a lot more info about your device (for instance, whether your iPhone 3G has the vulnerable baseband boot loader, or whether your iPhone3GS has the old exploitable bootrom.

RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 jailbreak is:

  • tethered for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1, if these devices are running 5.1 then it can not be jailbroken.
  • tethered for all other devices if they are running ios 5.1 except iPhone 3gs with old bootrom
  • untethered for all devices (except iphone 4S and iPad 2)  if they are running ios 5.0.1 or older versions

How to jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPhone 4/3gs, iPod Touch and iPad 1/2

Step 1: Download latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 Windows Mac . Now extract the zip file on your desktop or other folder as you wish.

Step 2: Double click the RedSn0w.exe file to run or right click and Run as Administrator.

Step 3: There are two options Jailbreak and Extras. Click Jailbreak (Jailbreak and Install Cydia).

Step 4: You will see the below screen. There are two sections first about iPhone 4S and iPad 2, so if you have iPhone 4S and iPad 2 you can just go to next step without turning your device off. For all other devices you have to plug your device to your computer and turn it off. You can see the status of your iPhone at the bottom of this screen. Read this whole screen carefully before pressing Next. If you are not following the instructions the Next button will remain disabled.

Note: Before clicking next make sure your computer is connected to the internet.

Step 5: Refer to below image now you have to put your device in DFU (direct firmware  update) mode, by following the screen instructions. If you are unsuccessful and there is an error message (your iphone turns on), just relax and keep the computer screen as it is. Press and Hold both power and Home buttons until your iphone turns off and turns ON, Now release power button and keep holding Home button untill you will see some progress activity on computer (RedSn0w) screen.

You will see progress on your computer program and will reach to a selection screen as mentioned in next step.

Step 6: By default install Cydia is selected just press Next. You will see different messages on RedSn0w screen with progress bars. Finally a screen saying “The rest of this process takes place on your device”. Now you will see the RedSn0w icon on your device with progress bar and then black screen with white text lines moving up. It may take some time but your device will reboot and become normal. Now it is jailbroken, but wait ! Read the last step carefully.

Step 7: Now your device is jailbroken untethered or tethered, so it is time to boot tethered if it is tethered jailbroken. How you know it is tethered or untethered. Very simple just run Cydia or Safari if it runs normally you are lucky you got the untethered jailbreak and if these two programs just run and stop it means you need next step.

Step 8: Boot Tethered

Run the RedSn0w program and from the main screen select the second option “Extras” Then Select “Just Boot“. Now you have complete the steps 4 and 5 to put your device in DFU mode. Once the device goes in DFU mode remaining process will complete itself and your device will reboot. Now you have tethered jailbreak installed. Open Cydia and start using jailbreak apps.

Thanks God the news about 5.1 jailbreak have been started after a long wait. Two days earlier pod2g tweeted that he has found an exploit for jailbreak, then chpwn tweeted that still it can take months, but now yesterday pod2g tweeted and announced that he has overcome the ASLR barrier that was preventing him from finalizing the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. You may not be aware of ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) which is a security measure introduced by Apple in recent versions of iOS, in order to make jailbreaking of IOS difficult. The target of jailbreakers for ASLR was to find a way to bypass the ASLR. Which pod2g has done now.

Based upon the above news I am sure that our beloved jailbreakers are very close to jailbreak 5.1 , although still they need to work on ETA. I think we should keep visiting their blogs and if possible make donations so that they can continue their 5.1 jailbreak process to make us happy.

Guys keep visiting my blog so that you are always updated on current status of ios 5.1 jailbreak and subscribe below to my blog so that you can receive emails automatically.

After long wait at least there is a news about 5.1 untethered jailbreak for jailbreaknation or jailbreak community, today the famous jailbreaker Pod2G has given us a new hope that the work is on its way for the new 5.1 jailbreak which most probably will be untethered and for all existing devices, so that we shall be able to jailbreak 5.1 untethered. He says in his tweet:

News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I’m working on bypassing ASLR at bootup

Just  to remind you if you are an old jailbreaker for ios 5.0.1 jailbreak also Pod2G was the person in charge of finding the exploits that were later used in the 5.0.1 jailbreak successfully and most importantly the jailbreak was compatible for all devices at that time. I understand the iPad 3 users must be waiting for the iPad 3 jailbreak which will help them to truly enjoy the full potential of the A5 device.

I wish I could jailbreak 5.1 today but remember there is another tweet by chpwn where he says that it could take months even if exploit is found, and he is true because in the previous case also Absinthe jailbreak took weeks after news broke of exploits on Pod2G’s blog last year.

Here is screen shot of pod2g’s tweet:

jailbreak 5.1 update

Here is the tweet by Chpwn where he says a fact:

Remember: just because all the exploits are found doesn’t mean that a jailbreak exists — it’s likely months away from first working at all

I am as enthusiastic as you are for getting the new ios 5.1 jailbreak, so lets wait and pray for success of our beloved jailbreakers and don’t forget to donate on their sites if you can. Subscribe to my blog below and also like me on Facebook and share.

If you want to jailbreak iphone 4s 5.1 the below jailbreak information is for you and you have to read very carefully before going for jailbreak 5.1 untethered or tethered, the  iPhone 4S 5.1 jailbreak has not yet been officially released by reliable sources, and the jailbreak available for the time being is tethered (some people are trying for iphone 4s also and you can try but after making backup of your device and saving SHSH blobs).

There is one website that is claiming iPhone 4S 5.1 untethered jailbreak which is xpoison, I tried to open the download links but these seem to be broken. I don’t know if someone has got xpoison 5.1 iPhone 4S jailbreak or not. You can check this video. The video title is Xpois0n RC 2.0 Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5.1 for A4, A5, A5X  Devices. Since I suspect this site therefor I am not giving direct link here but you can go to http://Xpois0n.blogspot.com.

The 5.1 jailbreak guide given below is for ios 5.1 and 5.0.1 tethered jailbreak and is compatible with  iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G, 3G using latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b6. I have given below the download links for redsnow 0.9.10b6 and complete step wise guide to jailbreak  iPhone 4s, untethered jailbreak iPhone 3GS 5.1, untethered  jailbreak iPod touch 4G 5.1 , jailbreak  iPod Touch 3G 5.1 and iPad 2 5.1 jailbreak.
Before continuing you have to note that:

  • This is a *tethered* 5.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices (i.e. other than iPhone 4S, iPad 2&3) that means each time you need to reboot your idevice you will need to use redsn0w and select the option of “Just Boot” as mentioned in below jailbreak tutorial. Otherwise your Safari and Cydia apps will not work/launch.
  • Similarly If you want to use ultrasn0w for your carrier unlock, be sure to use a custom IPSW to update to 5.1 first. You have to use redsn0w for generating custome ipsw “Custom IPSW”.
  • This jailbreak will become automatically untethered if your device has old-bootrom i.e. 3GS.
  • iBooks is not working until next update of redsn0w is released

Below steps are very simple to jailbreak iPhone 4 on ios 5.0.1 and are also compatible with iPhone 3gs, ipod touch and ipad 1 on iOS 5.1 by using the latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b6.

Below are the steps on How to jailbreak 5.0.1 / 5.1 

Important Note: This jailbreak is not for iPhone 4S jailbreak, iPad 2 or iPad 3 jailbreak if these are running ios 5.1 otherwise if they are running ios 5.0.1 then it is OK. 

Step 1: Download latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 by Clicking Here for Windows and Here for Mac.

Step 2: Extract the zip file and run the RedSn0w.exe file to start the redsn0w jailbreak process.

Step 3: There are two buttons “Extras” and “Jailbreak”, click Jailbreak to jailbreak and install Cydia


Step 4: Follow the instructions given on Next screen and put your device in DFU mode. Press Next.

Step 5: Follow the screen instructions to put your device in DFU mode. RedSn0w will detect iPhone 4 and start installation of jailbreak and select “Install Cydia” when asked. (If not you can follow steps to put your device in DFU mode as instructed by clicking Next in previous step again). Close RedSn0w.

Step 6: Boot Tethered your iPhone 4: Restart RedSn0w by double clicking the exe file.

Go to Extra option and click “Just Boot”

Your iphone 4 will restart and now it is jailbroken tethered.

Note: This is a tethered jailbreak and if you need to reboot your iPhone you need to do step 6 each time therefore you need computer to reboot your iPhone4.

I know you know this but there are hundreds of iPhone, iPad and iPod users joining the jailbreak community on daily basis therefore I thought to write this short post to just give precise overview of common terms:

Difference between Tethered, Untethered and SemiTethered Jailbreak

  • Tethered Jailbreak – A tethered jailbreak means that each time you reboot your iDevice, the boot process will fail (you’ll get stuck on the Apple logo). To get around this you will need to plug your iDevice back into your computer and re-run the jailbreaking tool like Redsn0w and select “Just boot tethered”.
  • Untethered Jailbreak – An untethered jailbreak means that your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will function as normal as it was before jailbreak.
  • SemiTethered Jailbreak – SemiTethered Jailbreak means that you still have a Tethered Jailbreak but if you want to reboot your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, it will re-boot into a semi-functioning state where you can use apps such as Phone/SMS etc but not Cydia and Safari. To work with jailbroken apps you need to reboot tethered by using the jailbreak tool.

Difference between Stock firmware and Custom firmwareJailbreak iOS 5 Untethered

  • iOS Stock firmware – This firmware officially come from apple and may or may not update your iDevice baseband automatically.
  • iOS Custom firmware – This firmware do not include baseband on it. So you don’t have to worry by getting your baseband change/update. This is only possible by excluding the baseband using redsn0w or sn0wbreeze jailbreaking tools by selecting stock firmware to make a new custom firmware.

Difference Between Unlock and Jailbreak

  • Jailbreak – Allows you to install 3rd party applications, customize graphics, sounds, etc.
  • Unlock – Allows you to use the phone on networks other than AT&T or the one to whom you registered.

As reported by zdnet a new security hole has been revealed in Facebook’s native mobile applications running on jailbroken or rooted devices. This loop hole allows hackers to steal personal information of its users. This security hole effects both Android and iOS smartphones as discovered by Gareth Wright a developer. This problem arises due to the fact that Facebook is not encrypting the login credentials instead storing them in a plain text file and therefore it can be accessible on jailbroken devices. If your smart phone is not jailbroken you don’t need to worry about this vulnerability since Google and Apple restrict access to the filesystem of their smartphones by default therefore hackers can not exploit this vulnerability and steal personal information from you.

Below is the official statement from Facebook on the matter:Facebook Mobile Login Vunerability Found

Facebook’s iOS and Android applications are only intended for use with the manufacture provided operating system, and access tokens are only vulnerable if they have modified their mobile OS (i.e. jailbroken iOS or modded Android) or have granted a malicious actor access to the physical device. We develop and test our application on an unmodified version of mobile operating systems and rely on the native protections as a foundation for development, deployment and security, all of which is compromised on a jailbroken device. As Apple states, ‘unauthorized modification of iOS could allow hackers to steal personal information … or introduce malware or viruses.’ To protect themselves we recommend all users abstain from modifying their mobile OS to prevent any application instability or security issues.

It is to be noted that Facebook doesn’t use authentication tokens for storing your login information since it is not a good idea because there would be a need to store a key on your device to decrypt. Therefore the viable solution seems to force users to login every time they launch the Facebook application although this is also not a favored solution.

Jailbreak 5.1 Semi Untethered On iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad (4th Gen) With Redsn0w. Below is the guide on How to jailbreak ios 5.1
This is a semi untethered 5.1 jailbreak therefore you need to boot tethered each time you restart your device. If you want to use an unlock it is highly recommend to stay on iOS 5.0.1. This jailbreak is not for iPad 2 or 3, and the iPhone 4s if these are running ios 5.1

Step 1: Download latest version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 by Clicking below links:

RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 For Windows

RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 For Mac

Step 2: Extract the zip file and run the RedSn0w.exe file to start the redsn0w jailbreak process.

Step 3: There are two buttons “Extras” and “Jailbreak”, click the first button Jailbreak to jailbreak and install Cydia


Step 4: Connect your iPad 1 into the computer using the USB port. Read instructions on below screen and make sure that your iPad is OFF before clicking the Next button.

You can see on the screen that this jailbreak is also compatible for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 but remember if these are having iOS 5.0.1 and if having iOS 5.1 then it is not compatible.

Step 5: Now you have to put your device in DFU (direct firmware update) mode, just follow the RedSn0w screen instructions and you will do it, if you feel difficulty you can visit this post on How to put your iPad in DFU mode.

  • Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.
  • Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.

Step 6: Just observer the screen message and let it complete until next input screen comes.

Your iPad will now reboot to identify the build.

Now RedSn0w will prepare the jailbreak data.

 

Step 7: On next screen check Install Cydia from the list of check box options and click Next.

 

Step 8: iPad will now reboot and RedSn0w will build the jailbreak process and upload ramdisk. The remaining part of jailbreak will take place on your iPad and you can see the RedSn0w icon on the screen with progress bar. After completion of this jailbreak install the iPad will reboot and will have Cydia installed. Now you have to boot it using RedSn0w before you can use the Cydia and Safari.

 

 

Step 9: Boot Tethered iPAd1 : Again start the RedSn0w and Select Extras this time.


 

Step 10: Select Just boot from the Extras menu to just boot tethered right now. The iPad 1 will reboot and now it is tethered jailbroken. You can run Cydia now. Just tap the Cydia icon on your springboard and if it loads it means your jailbreak is successful. If Cydia is not running try reinstalling again from step 1.
