jailbreak ios 5.1

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.

Jailbreak iOS 5.1 Untethered – Update

As most of you are aware that few days back pod2g started a poll to ask the jailbreak community whether he should jailbreak 5.1 untethered or wait for release of iOS 6 and then put their efforts on iOS 6 jailbreak. The current status of poll demands that pod2g should release iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak.

Now the latest news about 5.1 jailbreak reveals that pod2g is working hard and has got two new vulnerabilities. He states in his latest tweet “News: a productive week-end. Found 2 big vulnerabilities. 1 kernel land and 1 root land.

Getting the exploits in kernal and root may lead a jailbreak independent of the firmware i.e. it will be compatible for all firmware. As mentioned in the last statements pod2g told that it may take a month or two to achieve the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. We hope the time comes as early as possible and we can enjoy the jailbreak tweaks and apps from Cydia.

Exploits found for ios 5.1 jailbreak

If you need to jailbreak iPhone 4S iOS 5.1 you can go to this jailbreak 5.1 tutorial, but remember this is tethered jailbreak which means you will need to boot tethered using computer if you need to restart your iPhone 4S, otherwise Safari and Cydia may not work.

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.

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.

You can jailbreak ios 5.1 tethered on iPhone 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 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad 1.
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 is will become automatically untethered if your device has old-bootrom 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.

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.
