Dev-Team releases Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 for ios5b1

Update #16: redsn0w version 0.9.9b8 will natively recognize the 5.0.1 beta that Apple let developers start testing this week (so you don’t have to play the “point at 5.0 IPSW” trick). Because the IPSW isn’t public, you’ll still need to provide it once to redsn0w (at which point it will cache all the important pieces so you don’t need to select it again).

For those 3GS and i4 users who preserve their baseband, the Mac version can also produce the NO_BB_* custom IPSWs for 5.0.1. (But please note that ultrasn0w doesn’t get updated for betas like this.)

Tethered Boot?
* iPhone 3GS (old bootrom)………NO
* iPhone 3GS (new bootrom)……..YES
* iPhone 4 (GSM)………………YES
* iPhone 4 (CDMA)……………..YES
* iPod Touch 3G……………….YES
* iPod Touch 4………………..YES
* iPad 1G…………………….YES
Here are the download links:

You can jailbreak the newly released iOS 5.0.1 beta right now from the the existing Redsnow for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. So if you haven’t jailbreak already go ahead and jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 by following our guide below.

Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Using Redsnow For iPhone iPad iPod touch

  • There is no untethered jailbreak available for iOS 5, so likewise this jailbreak is a tethered one.
  • iPad 2 can not be jailbroken right now, to jailbreak iPad 2 downgrade to iOS 4.3.3 and jailbreak using JailbreakMe 3.0
  • If you rely on unlock do not update to iOS 5.0.1
  • There is no jailbreak available for iPhone 4S, wait until further information.
  • If you jailbreak you will lose the ability to update via OTA (Over The Air). You will need to plugin you iOS device to your computer and restore to get the ability back
You Will Need:
Download iOS 5.0.1 beta
Download iTunes 10.5.1 beta 2
Download Redsnow (This Redsnow is the same as previous one if you already have it no need to download again)

Jailbreak Compatibility (These devices can be jailbroken)
  • iPhone 4 (GSM)
  • iPhone 4 (CDMA)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad 1
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Using Redsnow

STEP 1. Download Redsnow from the link above

STEP 2: Download iOS 5.0.1 from the link above

STEP 3: Plugin your iPhone iPad iPod touch to your computer via The USB

STEP 4: Start redsnow, click on extras followed by select ipsw ( select iOS 5 NOT iOS 5.0.1)

STEP 5: Now you will need to put your device in DFU mood. Simply go back and select jailbreak, after you have selected that you will be asked to put your device in to DFU mood, simply follow the on screen instructions and Cydia will be installed on your iPhone iPad iPod touch.

STEP 6: As this is a tethered jailbreak you will be required to boot tethered every time you reboot your device (one of the problems of untethered jailbreak)
STEP 7: To boot tethered put iPhone iPad or iPod touch in DFU mood and select extras followed by just boot.

That’s it you are done, you will have a jailbroken iPhone iPad or iPod touch on iOS 5.0.1.
After you have jailbroken your iOS device you can head over to Cydia and install semi tethered jailbreak (can be found under BigBoss repo). As this redsnow jailbreaks tethered only you will need to boot tethered everytime, so what this cydia package does is you can just reboot without the need of putting it into DFU mood, but you will lose some of your abilities. This is just an option, it is not required to install it.
