Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak released for iPad 1 and other non-A5 devices
Pod2g has officially released his untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for iDevices that do not contain Apple’s A5 chip. Currently, the jailbreak only works on the iPad 1, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G and 4G but Pod2g and others are working hard to include the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.
If you already have a jailbroken device with iOS 5.0.1 you can install Corona via Cydia. Corona will install pod2g’s untethered exploits and reboot without requiring an external tool like redsn0w or sn0wbreeze, and without having to restore your device (so you won’t have to sync apps, music, etc).
- Open the Cydia app on your tethered jailbroken device.
- Search for “Corona”.
- Tap Install.
The Chronic Dev Team also promises to release a Corona 5.0 untether package in the next few days for those who have a tethered jailbreak and who have not upgraded to iOS 5.
For those who do not have a tethered jailbreak (access to Cydia), you will need to install the jailbreak with a tool like redsn0w 0.9.10, after upgrading to iOS 5.0.1.
Currently, you can still upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 in iTunes but do not upgrade to iOS 5.0.2 or later because Apple will likely patch the exploits used in this jailbreak. Here is where you can download iOS 5.0.1 firmware after Apple quits signing iOS 5.0.1.
We will release a tutorial shortly for redsn0w 0.9.10 and we will keep you posted on any further developments with the iPad 2 jailbreak.
