Apple Releases iOS 5.0.1 To The Public, Jailbreakers Stay Away!

by Ahmed Omar on November 10, 2011

Apple today released the final version of iOS 5.0.1 for public for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The iOS 5.0.1 software update fixes battery issues on iPhone 4S and bring back multitasking gesture to the original iPad.

Download iOS 5.0.1

You can get the update either by downloading the firmware IPSW file official from Apple or it’s also offered by over-the-air (OTA) feature for those of you who already running iOS 5.0. You can get it by tapping on Settings, General, Software Update.

The update also contains a fix for the security flaw discovered by Charlie Miller. That’s why hackers are warning jailbreakers from upgrading to iOS 5.0.1. If you’re looking forward to getting future untethered jailbreak, iPhone 4S jailbreak and iPad 2 jailbreak, then it’s better to wait.

MuscleNerd also warned from upgrading to iOS 5.0.1 since you won’t be able to downgrade from iOS 5.0.1 to iOS 5:

  • Tedy

    how can i downgrade 5.0.1 to 5.0 ? lost my JB

  • Guest

    how do you confirm this?

  • noelstrom

    I have successfully upgraded to 5.0.1 and re-jailbroken my phone. If you still have the original IPSW file for iOS 5, then all you need to do is open redsn0w 0.9.9b8, manually select that IPSW, and jailbreak. At least this is a stop-gap measure until redsn0w is updated to support the jailbreaking of 5.0.1 without having to manually select the IPSW.

  • carlos

    i have redsn0w 0.9.9b8 what ipsw do i need to download ??

  • noelstrom

    Search Google for iOS 5 IPSW. Lots of sources to be found.

  • Satvector

    forward to getting future – nice

  • Gordon Friel

  • Silus_lxk

  • Mina

  • Hugo007

  • Help

    Yes, it you have an iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, iPad 1, 2, or iPod 3, 4, download the newest version of iTunes from the Apple website, then plug up your device, click update.

  • Anthony

  • sang

  • http://www.jauhari.net/ Jauhari

    Thanks…. it’s worked

  • Guest

    Jailbraked my 3Gs before a week and when i downloaded the 5.0.1 i lost my JB, when i try to jailbreak again i get a messege:
    Unrecognized build.
    Fingerprint: 38b5cbccf371f102ba2cb2215aaf4b3
    Please check wheather you have the latest version of redsn0w and whether this iOS version is supported yet.
    NOTE: You can manually specify which build to use by going to “Extras->Select IPSW” (sometimes you can use this trick and just use the latest supported build to for your device).

    What should i do??

  • Guest

    i manually downloaded 5.01 but now my ibooks is messed up and doesn’t open.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • Shoaibster

    I just managed to JB my iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 by manually selecting the 5.0 ipsw instead of 5.0.1 in redsnow (0.9.9b8). I kept getting the same error message but after trying a couple of times it just worked on its own. Try an get ur timing with the DFU mode as accurate as possible.

    Hope that helps.

  • Faizal_fu

    how to know am i on iphone 4 (gsm) or (cdma)

  • Pharaonmisr1

    Hi faizal_fu,
    Please would you like to help me for found ipsw firmware for ios 5.0.1? Thanks

  • Olegocska

    To>Faizal_fu
    gsm is when you have got a card slot in it. So that you can use it with any operator you wish all
    over the world (Europe for example, we have only gsm types of iphone). Still you may be stricted to only one operator, but you can go ask for an unblock of that. While if you use the cdma iphone it is opposite, have no sim card slot for and you are totally stricted or connected to one operator and cannot change it. Like in US on AT&T or T-Mobile. CDMA I believe can be also in office phones or home phones, so that you can take it around the city with you. Something like that, I guess.

  • H2o_slayer

    USE THIS IT WORKS FOR 5.0.1

    EVERYONE has missed an important part here. I stumbled upon it. Do this

    Redsnow 9.9b8
    Make sure you are on 5.0.1
    Download 5.0 (previous verison)
    Run redsnow but specify the 5.0 version not a 5.0.1 (yes even though you are on 5.0.1)
    Jailbreak as per instruction
    When finished
    again specify 5.0
    Just boot option
    BUT SOFT RESET WHEN IT SAYs WAITING FOR RE BOOT!!! (hold power button) I have not seen this anywhere and mine kept crashing or just didnt work!!! When you do that you see the pine apple instead of the apple and all works fine!!!

  • Azeemk

    i follow your instructions i did see the pineapple instead for apple logo but cydia is not added to my phone. 3gs 05.16.05 firmware

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1485633975 Glendys Morales

    rookie question prob. how can i download the 5.0 version again. I AM UPDATING MY ITUNES AND I AM RUNNING 5.0.1

  • Sop Mo

    Thanks H2o_slayer. I now still have some hair left.

  • Guest

    same here :(

  • bibichu

    Fantastic! Works like a charm! Thanks for this method! the trick is just to soft reset while saying “waiting for reboot”!
    I did it straight away and it works fine!
    Cheers for the tips

  • Kamranakmal288

    i could not understand the last three lines plzzzzzz help me h20slayer

  • UnknownGlory

    I did as u said, the moment I saw ‘Waiting for reboot’ I immediately pressed n held onto the home button. It does show me the pineapple logo but after awhile it switches bak to the apple logo n is stuck there :/
    I am using an iPhone4 white version 5.0.1 n am using redsnow 9.9b8.

  • Clarogvillar

    It would work with ios 5 on my 4s ?

  • B0rhui 96

    can i upgrade to ios 5 and not ios5.0.1 now ? i’ve manually select my 5.0 ipsw file downloaded from other sit and it says failed.

  • G Racey

    Don’t do a soft reset,it will work anyway if you wait..

  • Acorbiere

    So is there a way to get upgrade to 5.0 instead of 5.0.1?

  • Sgree007

    When i download iOS 5.0, it shows up as a .zip instead of a .ispw file and redsnow wont recognize it as firmware…??

  • Chad Klein

    use firefox instead of safari

  • KidKottonmouth

    You gotta decompress the .zip file. the .ipsw frimware file is inside it.

  • zack

    just rename it from .zip to .ipsw

  • Ianaphillips

    if you look at thhe ipsw software for the iphone 4 and 3gs it says iphone3,1_5.0.1_9A405.zip but ah ha if you look at the iphone 4s it says iphone4.,1_5.0.1_9A405.zip now not being stupid but if you download the 4s file and force the software to load via itunes by restoring but holding shift restore so you can choose the ipsw file to run the phone on as if you were downgrading then possibly you may get siri as the siri files are only on the 4.1 file and not on the 3.1. any one tried this?

  • Ianaphillips

    sorry the 3gs software says iphone2,1_5.0.1_9A405
    but my point is siri is only software so I am going to try a forced software update to the 4s on my 4, worst case is I have to reload the 4 software. or rip the siri files from 4s located in the zip file and drop them into them into the same location in the 4 and then convert to ipsw from zip by changing the file extension.

  • Boyz_scoot

    Nice Ianaphillips…Tell Us About It

  • Hikcell

    I have same problem

  • Keakers

    Where do I even download 5.0?! only 5.0.1 appears..

  • J@!LbR3@k BEAST

    Apple only lets you update to the current firmware, or you can just not update. ANY firmware under 5.0 is easier, AND more stable jailbreaks, check out redsn0w, or limera1n!

    HAVE FUN :D

  • ishu

    Google “5.0 IPSW”, and download it from a reliable source. Then, after it’s downloaded, go back to redsnow, click on extras (below the jailbreak and cydia button), and click on specify IPSW. Find the 5.0 IPSW file you just downloaded and press enter. Then it should work!

  • wandran

    Same thing happened to me.

  • wandran

    Correction, it didnt just not install Cydia but it didn’t even jailbreak it, I could boot without redsn0w

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=641796583 Steven Polanco

    where did you download ipsw 5.0???

  • GGGG

    i have the same problem

  • Reza Ghavamizadeh

    try searching “ios 5 direct link” in google. you’ll find it

  • Reza Ghavamizadeh

    if you can change the sim-card inside your iphone its gsm.but if it has an installed simcard that you can’t change its cdma (verison) .

  • Reza Ghavamizadeh

    try searching “ios 5 direct link” in google and download it from there and restore it with an updated itunes. if you click update you’ll get ios 5.0.1

  • Roberthagen06

    thanks alot would never thought of that

  • Jinny

    Does it mean, if i have updated to 5.0.1, the jailbreak does not work?

  • Michaelhenryrose

    it says /download-ios-5.0.1-to-the-public-jailbreakers-stay-away/

  • Avers

    It’s working well. :)

  • jona

  • Xjumper24

    repeat with selecting ipsw 5.0 before reboot.

  • Xjumper24

    Redsnow 9.9b8
    Make sure you are on 5.0.1
    Download 5.0 (previous verison)
    Run redsnow but specify the 5.0 version not a 5.0.1 (yes even though you are on 5.0.1)

    Hi,
    I have jailbreaked my 3GS with ReadSn0w 0.9.10b3 and was trying to unlock it using ultraSn0w 1.2.5. It detects my carrier but shows No Signal.
    The firmware = 06.15.00
    iOS 5.0.1
    Need help.

  • Tuklan Annan

    I tried with redsn0w/ultrasn0w, it said it jailbroke, but it cant detect the network anymore, neither is the wifi turned on. the modem firmware shows 06.15.00 while my iphne 4 is some 04.11.08. strange. looks my iphone is bricked since i flashed it with ipad baseband :(

  • kcpism

    From Dev-Team Blog:

    “Baseband 4.11.xx cannot be software or hardware unlocked.
    There is no exploit to software unlock it.
    Basebands on 3GS and iPhone4 cannot be downgraded !
    If you need to unlock, do some research and buy a used iPhone that can be unlocked or a FUL iPhone.
    Any claim of a unlock for 4.11.xx on a website is a SCAM. ”

    I updated via iTunes to 5.0.1 and had baseband 4.11.08 but did the jailbreak anyways and it still worked?!

    Used redsn0w 0.9.10b3 on iPhone 4

    Dont know if I am lucky or if it was supposed to happen – hope other folks try it and are successful!

  • MASD

    Im also having this problem

  • J_ardinger

    6.15 is ipad baseband . once you change it iy cannot go back. i changed mine because the baseband i had on iphone was not unlockable. have you installed ultrasnow? not sure about on the 4 i have older model. i now i was warned over and over before changing to be sure i had a compatable phone before doing so. i know ultrasnow is the only way i get carrier signal.

  • Anonymous

    I have installed ultrasn0w 1.2.5, but still – it is detecting the carrier but no signal.

  • Kuku

  • Rgu3t0

    Don’t unzip…just change the “.zip” portion of the file name to “.ipsw” then select it that way

  • xf4113ns0u1x

    i have the same problem. i changed to “.ipsw” and its still a zip.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_643AZNAFRLTJTR2NS4Y4PMYLV4 KrY_0_diNe

    If your like me youve downloaded the “5.0.1 IPSW” a couple of time from a couple of sites already, well this worked for me try and let me know the results…Open Zip, Click on “Open Zip File” at the top, and next to “File Name” click the Down Arrow and switch from “Zip Files” to “All Files” and well search your “Download” folder and thats where my “iPhone3,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore(4G).ipsw” showed up. ALSO dont forget to go to your “redsn0w_win_0.9.10b3,” select “Custon IPSW” and preserve a “NO_BB” 5.0.1 Restore. This is the one your going to use from now on to restore back to 5.0.1 firmware. ;)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_643AZNAFRLTJTR2NS4Y4PMYLV4 KrY_0_diNe

    You can used the 4.1 FW for your 3GS then install ipad BB 6.15.00 after you successfully JB, you will have a signal of any carrier, then you can restore to any FW version but you must preserved the 6.15.00 as it is support with Ultrasn0w 1.2.5

    I have 2 3GS and do the same, and it works… :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/HammerHead-Jr-Crusaders/650098249 HammerHead Jr Crusaders

    4.10.01 BB is not support by Ultrasn0w, you can use gevey sim instead.

    if you want, downgrade your FW to 4.1 and flash your BB to 6.15.00 then you can upgrade later after you successfully JB you iphone.

    just download the ios 5.0.1 file on mozilla firefox. it automatically unzips the file. the file will then show as an ipsw file. you just press shift and restore and then choose the ipsw file and itll restore.

    Hi,

    I have iPhone 3GS with 4.0 IOS & BB 05.13.04 – Used Jailbreakme and Ultrasn0w for JB and Unlock. Can I upgrade to 5.0.1 directly from Apple or do I need a “special” version?
    Then, can I run Redsn0w-0.9.10b3 and Ultrasn0w again to go back to JB and Unlock?

    Thanks

  • RottenMcQueen

    Worked great, thanks!

  • HC

    if i already have 5.0.1 do i need the custom firmware or can i just run redsnow

  • Rctmaster

    I downloaded from Corona my untethered jailbreak. Finally! It’s been weeks i had the tethered jailbreak! BTW, HC, all you need once u have iOS 5.0.1 is to run the newest edition of redsn0w as described above. I think it would be cool if a program came out to change the script of your ipod touch 4g so that it could change it to an iphone and automatically have a Phone button. The only problem would be that you need a carrier, and pay for the bill… :(

  • Syahmi Samri

    Best likely to just download through iTunes. Then get the .ipsw on windows by, Start>Run>%appdata%>Apple Computer>iTunes>iPad Software Updates
    If you are using Windows 7/Vista you can type %appdata% on the search bar found at Start

  • Syahmi Samri

    Try putting into DFU Mode then restoring

    hi guys! all of you are awesome! some of you are facing problems and others who are experienced already are helping others in need!

    i have one question! i successfully upgraded my iphone 4 to 5.0.1 and jailbroken already! :)
    i noticed that my battery life decreases quite quickly compared to when i was in ios 4.3.3. is it ios 5.0.1 bugs which in fact that 5.0.1 was told to be the solution for battery problems?

    any reply would be much appreciated.. just wondering.. :)

  • Brookejhausler

    OK, hey guys, I have a minor problem. I have an IPod 4G 5.0.1…. I downloaded and unzipped the file for redsn0w, but where is the IPSW file? Also, if anyone is ind enough to comment on this, how do I go about installation if I have a Windows Vista to download from?

  • R3nant3_11

    pls help me. i want to upgrade my ipad 2 ver 4.3.4 to ios 5.0.1.. i already downloaded IPSW 5.0.1… what sould i do now?

  • guest007

    r3nant you just have to update your ipad trough itunes

  • Abie

    if what you downloaded is a .zip file, then change that by renaming it as .ipsw. you may have to change your Folder Options by unchecking Hide known file extensions to be able to replace ‘zip’ with ‘ipsw’. hope it works.

  • Abie

    you have to rename that zip file instead of unzipping it. see my reply to MoonBerry below. after you rename the zip file, open iTunes then select your iDevice in the right pane. from there, hold down Shift key and click on update or restore. before doing this, i would suggest that you back up your iDevice first by right-clicking it in the right pane.

    does this jailbreak work on 5.1 (9B179) ?

  • Dvdrip

    @Sai, Put your iPhone into DFU mode. Hold Power and Home button for 10 seconds, release the power button, while still holding the Home button for 15 seconds. When you open iTunes, you should be able to Restore and update your iPhone.

  • Dvdrip

    @ Sanders Jason678. Don’t run tinyumbrella, unless you backed up your SHSH blobs before. Just try to restore through iTunes.

    Yes I did that too but the jailbreak fr it on iOS 5.1 is only tethered even if u try and download corona 5.0.1 untethered it won’t allow u to do it
