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.

Jail breaking is a process of removing the restrictions imposed by Apple on their iDevices. You can use redsnow 0.9.11b4 and Absinthe untethered jailbreak 5.1.1 for jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Jailbreak 5.1.1 will install a program Cydia on your idevice which you can use an app store to download and purchase jailbreak 5.1.1 apps. So you can customize your device for apps, tweaks, cheats, unlocking etc. If a jailbreak is untethered it means you can use your device normally even if restarted which is not in the case of tethered jailbreak.

RedSnow 0.9.11b4 jailbreak 5.1.1 and jailbreak 5.1 is a tethered jailbreak. A tethered jailbreak is one when you need to connect your idevice to PC and use RedSn0w or any jailbreak software to reboot it and if you reboot without tethering it your jailbreak app Cydia and Safari will not work.

If you have upgraded your iPad 1 to new iOS 5.1 you already have lost your previous jailbreak and all jailbreak apps, if it was jailbroken. Or if you want to upgrade to 5.1 version and use the jailbreak apps you can follow below step-wise jailbreak guide.

Remember this is a tethered ios 5.1 jailbreak and we are still waiting for untethered 5.1 jailbreak which I hope will be available with in few weeks as stated by pod2g.  Tethered jailbreak means, whenever you need to restart/reboot your iPad you will need a computer to boot it using the RedSn0w 0.9.10b6.

Immediately after the release of iOS 5.1 there were claims that it has been jailbroken for A5 devices i.e. iPad 2, iPhone 4S and iPad3, or is very close to be jailbroken by three different sources, i0n1c, chpwn and p0sixninja but unfortunately we were unable to get iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak till today and none was released for public, the only available jailbreak is   RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 ios 5.1 jailbreak, which is tethered and not compatible with all devices. Latest news came from Pod2G of Chronic dev team that they are at work on a new jailbreak and it may take weeks.I thought to update you so that you are aware that there is some work going on for iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak below are the tweets from pod2g.

Joshua Hill known as @p0sixninja who was behind the iPhone 4S 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 has tweeted and stated that he has joined the efforts to jailbreak untethered iPad 3. P0sixninja is part of the Chronic Dev-team and he was the main person behind the Absinthe Greenpoi0n untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S / iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1. From his tweet it seems that he has just bought the new iPad 3 and now he is spending his time on the beach to find out the exploits for ios 5.1 untethered iPad 3 jailbreak.

I already mentioned in my previous posts that i0n1c has successfully got the ios 5.1 ipad 3 jailbreak which he has shown in a video that iPad 3 was running Cydia. If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that other exploits to jailbreak iPad 3 are also discovered by  MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-team and Phoenix-dev Frant Paul and Paul Griffin.

Another famous French jailbreaker and hacker Pod2g who was also behind the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, is struggling hard to find vulnerabilities to jailbreak iOS 5.1.

The above post is a summary of updates and progress made on ipad 3 iOS 5.1 jailbreak. Join my blog below to get up to date information on jailbreaking, iOS and iDevices.

Immediately after the release of iOS 5.1 the jailbreakers has provided us the ios 5.1 tethered jailbreak but that was not compatible with iPad2 on ios 5.1. Today some pictures were released by i0n1c showing that iPad 2 is running Cydia and still we are waiting the actual jailbreak software to be available for you. I suggest to subscribe below to my blog so that I can immediately inform you as soon as the ios 5.1 ipad 2 jailbreak is available for download.

I also mentioned in one of my previous post that pod2g is also working to jailbreak ios 5.1 untethered and for all devices including iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak, but it seems that i0n1c has succeeded in ipad 2 jailbreak before pod2g. We wish best of luck for both of them and thanks for working for us.
