After few months of waiting, the first iOS 5 untethered jailbreak was released thanks to pod2g’s exploit which was discovered couples of weeks ago. The jailbreak was available thanks to Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 then followed by Redsn0w 0.9.10b2 which fixed “launchctl” error. Earlier today, the iPhone Dev Team pushed yet another update to their popular jailbreak tweak, redsn0w, to fix more issues.
Some of you, whose devices were already on iOS 5.0.1 and tethered jailbroken, get many crashes because of the MobileSubstrate-based apps. The Redsn0w 0.9.10b3 fixes issues with MobileSubstrate.
The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed).
You can follow our previous instructions posted here to do an untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 using Redsn0w 0.9.10b3 but use the download links below for the new redsn0w version.
