Below is the step wise guide on how to jailbreak ios 5.1 semitethered.  Please note that this jailbreak for ios 5.1. is not compatible with iPhone 4S, ipad 2 and the new ipad that was released yesterday. If you want to jailbreak ios 5 on iphone 4S and iPad2/3 it is recommended that you keep on existing iOS 5.0.1 and refrain from updating to ios 5.1. You can jailbreak 5.0.1 using Absinthe for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The jailbreak which you will get by following procedure is semi-tethered which means you have to apply the last steps every time you need to restart your device. Similarly if you need to unlock or you already have unlocked your device it is better to not update to ios 5.1.

The new Absinthe jailbreak was released on Friday and as expected huge number of jailbreakers has done their job, the estimated number of jailbreaks done in only first three to four  days has  crossed the figure of 1,000,000. Remember these figures are for jailbrake iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Some figures were given on the official blog of the Saurik for first three days which was exactly 953,232.

One can think how correct these figures are, so you can read below comment from Saurik that whenever a user launches the Cydia it triggers a query to Saurik’s servers for obtaining the list of available SHSH blobs and even if there is no file the query is launched.

Below is breakdown of how many A5 owners have jailbroken their devices since Friday morning.  The numbers are as of Monday afternoon:

  • 491,325 new iPhone4,1 devices
  • 308,967 new iPad2 devices
  • 152,940 previously jailbroken (at 4.x) iPad2 devices

Total: 953,232 new A5 jailbreaks in a little over 3 days
