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.

Get ready! If you are planning to jailbreak iPhone 4S or iPad 2 you have to ensure that your device is ready before the jailbreaking tools are released.  This can happen that Apple decides to stop signing 5.0.1 and your device is not on firmware 5.0.1 so you will be in trouble and unlucky.


Normally Apple can do this before a new version is released, and withe 5.1 update can be released any time. Using your device you can update your device and it is very simple and doesn’t require iTunes so it is right time to update with existing version.

You can update by going to Settings —-> General —-> Software Update. To further ensure you can preserve your SHSH blobs once on 5.o.1 by using TinyUmbrella.

So start counting the days a new jailbreak is on its way for iPhone4S and iPad 2.

iPhone and chronic development teams have released new RedSn0w 0.9.10b3 that can be used to jailbreak iPhone 4. If you are jailbreaking first time this guide is for you and if your iPhone4 is already jailbroken which I am sure is tethered you can just upgrade your tethered to the untethered jailbreak by going to Cydia and searching Corona 5.0.1 untethered and install.

Following are the steps to jailbreak iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1.
