untethered

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.

 

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.

iPad 2 was also jailbroken by pod2g after he released a video demonstrating that the iPhone4S jailbreak has been done. It was obvious that the jailbreak hack that was used for iPhone4s will also work on iPad2 since both are having same A5. As per the Pod2g in one of his latest blog post, the iPad 2 is fully untethered, as well. I hope the jailbreak for iPhone4s and iPad2 will be released within 2-3 days. Although it is late but we can wait and we don’t have any other choice. You can join my site below so that I can update you via email as soon as the jail break for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is released.
