Stay Away From iOS 5.0.1 If You Want Future Jailbreak For iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iOS 5 Untethered

by Ahmed Omar on November 9, 2011

Two days ago, a very dangerous flaw in the security system for iOS was discovered by security researcher Charlie Miller which allow any app to be remotely download and execute malicious, system-level code on an iPhone. Apple, just few hours after the flaw was known, banned the app developer and may release iOS 5.0.1 for public very soon to fix this security flaw.

The iPhone hacker pod2g few days ago announced that he found a bug in iOS 5 which will allow untethered jailbreak on the software. After founding the security flaw mentioned above, the iOS 5 jailbreak and iPhone 4S jailbreak became  “dramatically easier.” as by pod2g.

That’s why I’m writing this post; to tell you that you’ve to stay away and don’t update to iOS 5.0.1 when it’s released to the public very soon. iOS 5.0.1 will surely fix the security flaw found by Miller which means that jailbreaking will be even more difficult.

Pod2g has been asked about how will people get the battery fix included in iOS 5.0.1, pod2g said:

some dev may create a package on Cydia containing the differences between 5.0 and 5.0.1.

We’ve seen iPhone 4S and iPad 2 already jailbroken on iOS 5 by the iPhone Dev Team. Founding exploits now became more easier with this security flaw. An iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iOS 5 untethered jailbreak are now on the horizon.

In brief, if you really care about the next iOS 5 jailbreak on all devices including the 4S and the 2nd-generation iPad, you’d better prevent yourself from updating to iOS 5.0.1.

If you found this post useful, hopefully hit the +1 (recommend) button ⇉

    wht about ipod touch 4

  • Kk305

    So does this mean it would be a good idea to go ahead and upgrade to 5.0 from 4.3.3 so we can save those hashes?

  • An0nym0u5

    I second that. I’m also using 4.3.3, and I’m not sure my SHSH can revert them back..

  • Yeah uh…

    Yeah, the downside is that pretty much any iOS trickery has become dramatically easier as a result of that bug being uncovered, not just JB.
    I’m not risking a possible bricking however small the chance, but that’s just me.

  • nBogo

    i was wondering the same thing, but i just don’t know if we have to upgrade to 5.0 before apple releases 5.0.1?? Not sure, since they may block ios 5.0 when they release 5.0.1 and we’ll stay stuck on 4.3.3..

    Any word of advise??

  • Leo Schnee


  • fanckush

    if you’re talking about an ipad 2 ..then it’s not recommended to upgrade ios 5.0 because the ipad 2 jailbreak might take a long long time to be released UNLESS IF you have your SHSH blobs saved…

  • Anonymous
  • Softnoise

    ipad 2 jailbreak might take a long long time to be released, what How long???????

  • Imperial Nymph

    why does it take a long time to jailbreak iPad 2? don’t iPad 2 and iPhone 4S have the same bootrom?

  • nBogo

    As we know, untethered ios5.0 jailbreak is not available yet. I’ve a gsm iphone 4 with 4.3.3 firmware and i have blobs saved. I’m just wondering, in order to have ios 5.0 untehtered when it’s released, will i have to be already running 5.0 or i may hold up to it’s release date? My question is due to being impossible saving shsh for ios 5, if apple releases 5.0.1 before the ios 5.0′s jailbreak, i’ll e able only to upgrade to 5.0.1 and won’t get jailbreak.. does it make any sense??? thanks

  • Chriss6996

    Why don’t you just download the ipsw now just in case? I actually download my like a week prior to release because i knew id need it for jailbrake, and actually also used it for upgrade the first night. Itunes kept giving errors because od the traffic, but since APPLE had to relplace my phone and give it to me with 4.2.10, lets just say its been while for me.. but I have to if you can find one, i find redsnow to work better switching up the ipsw’s once in a white. On and Snowbreeze jailbreaks suck., sorry was up late other night and i ONLY ever run into probemle running his

  • JP

    Well, what about the battery issue?! If you don’t update to 5.0.1 and stay on ios5 you’ll continue to have battery life issues. How can that be fixed without updating?!

  • Wondering….

    I am also on 4.3.3 now with my iphone 4. Should I upgrade to 5.0 now?

  • M.

    I am also on 4.3.3 now with my iphone 4. Should I upgrade to 5.0 now?

  • Nerio Bogoni Jr

    well, downloading ios 5.0 will never be an issue, since you can get it everywhere on the internet. the problem will be when apple stop signing ios 5 and sign just ios 5.0.1…
    battery issue i also belive won’t be an issue. As far i’ve herd it affects just 4s’

    so, remains my question.. upgrade to ios 5.0 before apple stops signing it or remain on 4.3.3???

  • JP

    Nope, the battery issue with ios5 is with all the models

  • M.

    iTunes already ask me to upgrade to 5.0.1.

  • Steve1010

    Did you say fuck you to ITunes ?

  • John Douard

    I had to get a replacment phone an it hd ios 4.3.5. By the time I got homethe only update is to ios 5.0.1. So now will I be unable to jailbreak?

  • Steve1010

    This is what I’ve done to my 4.3.3 on my ip4. Upgraded to 5.0.0 and backed it up to Cydia and downgraded back down to 4.3.3, so I can jb it again. Will upgrade it again to 5.0.0 when they release the jb tool for 5.0.0. The battery issue on the 5.0.0 is not as bad. I am sure a third party fix from Cydia will be available soon after the 5.0.0 is jb is released. What do you think?

  • Omar M.

    I have iphone4 updated to iOS 5 using sn0wbreeze to enable me using Gevey SIM, its working flawlessly. Do you recommend that I update to 5.0.1?

  • Jane

    I already accidentally upgraded to ios 5.0.1, anyway to turn it back? I just own iphone for 2 days and i know nothing but just simply do whatever iTune ask me to do…

  • Hannesd

    no stay on 4.3.3 because then you can still get an untethered JB for it.

  • Reza Ghavamizadeh

    Go and search for a direct link download for ios 5.0 . Then try to restore it with that file instead of updating to ios 5.0.1

  • Reza Ghavamizadeh

    It said in the written, it will come in a cydia package after jailbrake

  • Anonymous

    Fuck it, read this too late.

  • Ralph624

    Listen To Dev Team. Don’t Listen To Everything People Put Up

  • Cobraip4

    me too accident upgrade and I just bought last fri ugh….

  • cyberhead

    Well if you accidently updated your software, and you don’t know what your doing. Then maybe it is better if you stay away from Jailbreaking or you will end up with a phone that doesn’t work at all

  • steve1010

    you’re right. I have verified the shsh blobs and the goddamn thing will not let the IOS 5.0.0 shsh blobs saved. Oh well, I am now back to 4.3.3.

  • Ahwasn

    i need update on 5.0 4s cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • anang

    It better be done soon.. Otherwise the Dev team will b obsolete soon!

  • Jpfei05

    Please release the 4s jailbreak I hate stoking iOS !

  • Jpfei05

    Whoops I meant stock*

  • Oldvamp1

    plz release the jailbreak for iphone 4s i hate 4s without jb

  • hackAttack

    You obviously have the iPhone 4 (not 4S) because of the fact that the 4.3.3 is installed (not available for 4S). You can update and jailbreak the 4 on 5.0.1.

  • B H America W A W

    i just bought the 4s and its 5.0.1 HELP?

  • Jovany Ocasio


  • Farman

    I need help

  • Leslie Camping

    you have to use the 5.0 to reconise and the 5.0.1 to boot tetherded

  • Ben R

    iOS 4.3.5 tethered jailbreak for ipad 2 available

  • Elliott Quick

    well it said in the article that “Probably some dev will release the differences between 5.0 and 5.0.1 as a package on Cydia” So it might be fixed.

  • Elliott Quick

    This is an unlock to allow the phone to work on any network, not a jailbreak. It is also most likely fake because sprint will unlock your 4s to work on any network.

  • Elliott Quick

    what about it? same story as all other ios5 devices.

  • Elliott Quick

    aren’t most of the exploits found that allow for an UT Jailbreak on this level of security flawed?

  • Amigoindio

    I agree with cyberhead…

  • Parthav Thakkar

    hey i use 5.0 but the network is not coming now what should i do ?

  • Bklyneyes

    but what about Icloud… they are requiring you to upgrade to still use this service?

  • Tom Arkon

    you guys on this site talking shit. why are you keep teeling us not to update to 5.0.1. I don’t get it. other jailbreak teams have already managed to go half way to untether jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 and you are still spinning around and spreading fear among us.

  • Falconchan

    when i bought my iphone 4s its already on ios 5.0.1

  • Falconchan98

    how about u agree wif cyber fuck?

  • Fuckurmother

  • MilfMilk

    Cydia is going to die apple designed the 4s to be unjailbreakable with hardware I think I might smash my 4s

  • Ben

    how bout i suck your moms dick and then shove her plastic dick up her asshole and then eat cum from her fuckin’ nigger asshole? LOL!!!!

    “…allow any app to be remotely download and execute malicious, system-level code on an iPhone. Apple, just few hours after the flaw was known, banned the app developer and may release iOS 5.0.1 for public very soon to fix this security flaw.”

    So… dude finds a way to easily hack into your smartphone, get your personal info, and destroy your life, and you’re advising AGAINST upgrading the software to fix the problem??? Anyone else see the logic in this? I’m at a complete loss for words.

  • Anonymous

    You clearly missing the point. This exploit can be used in a negative manner (as you stated), or in a positive manner to jailbreak your device and delimit yourself from apple’s ridiculous limitations. The apps you download will not implement this malicious system level code, you can trust me.

  • Michael Cobases

    Hopefully the jailbreak will show up before the Christmas holidays so I will be able to play around a bit more than on working days.

  • Sounkimheng

    I just bought iPad 2 it’s already IOS 5.0.1….How should I do?

  • Anonymous

    hay dont smash it send it to pod2G or on of the other jailbrakers for a testing unit im shure thay’ll send it back after thay can J.B it.

  • Bcrossb

    Sprint will unlock your iphone 4s for international GSM use( as they have done mine. still need to test it in mexico tho). It will not activate unless you are in range of the international GSM antenna and using the international GSM sim card. i.e. pay as you go sim card. The unlocked Sprint iphone will not work on US( inside the US) GSM networks. Additionall, the unlocked iphone 4s purchased from the Apple store will not work on any CDMA network i.e. sprint, verizon, or cricket, or Canada is suspect.

  • Bcrossb

    Thatz just wonderful. Stay away from 5.0.1, except that the new 4s phones bought in the store already have 5.0.1 on them….. sure like to know how to down grade it…

  • Lzseeker

    if you call sprint’s international dept, they will unlock your iPhone 4s to use international gsm networks. will not work for USA based gsm networks. and must be within range of the international gsm network to activate.

  • Hockeydude696977

    People jailbreak for a5 devices is coming today check podg2 blog the wait is finally over everyone

  • Mobile3g

  • Lzseeker

    Why does this “Cydia” site sponsor other sites that offer jail breaking for iPhone 4s, knowing perfectly well that there is no jailbreak available yet???? is that like false advertising or what???

  • Mahdock

  • ih8s0pa


  • ykp

    i already have 5.0.1 on my iphone 4s does that means i cannot not jailbreak my iphone
    sorry for my english

  • Jameel

    If you plan on jailbreaking your 4S/iPad 2, update to 5.0.1 immediately before the next version is released and they stop signing it. Don’t believe me? Google Pod2g, the actual person doing the jailbreak. This post was from November.

  • Giordano Maccario

    you can! look out for Absinthe… it will solve your problems, wait a couple of days for guide!

  • Hempburgr420


    Jailbreak works fun on 5.0.

    And they stopped signing 5.0.1 a while ago.
