Pod2g iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Released For iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch

by Ahmed Omar on December 27, 2011

Folks, you read it right! Pod2g has just announced that his iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak has been released to the public. The jailbreak untethers all A4 devices running iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. Pod2g gave the codes to both the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team. Both the teams released the required tools for the untethered jailbreak.

pod2g untethered jailbreak ios 5.0.1

The iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak works on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and the iPad 1. However, iPhone hacker pod2g is currently focusing on releasing a jailbreak that will work on A5 devices like the iPhone 4S and iPad 2:

@pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices.  Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release.  Keep following pod2g on  or his blog for any progress reports!

The iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team sites are currently down due to the huge traffic and hits they’re getting.

You can do the jailbreak either by Redsn0w or GreenPois0n. We’ll be back with full guides and videos necessary to show you how to do a real untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 using the teams’ tools. Stay tuned.

UPDATE 1: Well, we’ve got our hands one redsn0w and greernpois0n tools. While we’re doing the guides, you can use the alternative method (only for jailbroken devices) by running “Corona 5.0.1 Untether” jailbreak tweak from Cydia. Our guide can be found here.

UPDATE 2: Here’s it. Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 guide is now available on our blog with an interesting video walkthrough. Check the guide and video here.

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

    Cydia and everything worked on my iPhone 4, but i seem to be having problems with apps that use the WiFi internet. Safari loads up and when i go on bookmarks click a link it loads up a page. The moment anything to do with the keyboard showing up like tapping the address bar, or typing in google search it crashes, this never happened before until untethered jailbreak. Anyone else have this issue?

    Please, give us some source with some working iphone delivery :)

  • Sale Aleksandar

    I have jailbreak with redsnow and add some cydia repos… Nothing else …

  • alex

  • Sale Aleksandar



  • Prabh_(Punjabi)


  • Sale Aleksandar

    I think that we have to wait few days for some working iphone delivery :)

  • Aljosa Dadic

    Install Corona, uninstal iphonedelivery, restart your device. When it loads you will see that there is a signal. Now i stall iphonedelivery and you have bought things: untethered jailbreak and iphonedelivery.
    IF your device lose power then you have to this again from beginning.
    This works, i tried on few devices and it is the best sollution if you really need iphonedelivery. I guess that in a few days we’ll get some update on Corona or iphonedelivery.
    Enjoy ! And pod2g, thank you very much !

  • John

    So now, it works better but I don’t have BigBoss, ModMyi and repo666 sources working.
    I can’t get Winterboard installed as well. Hope it will work better tomorrow.. But thank you!

  • http://www.facebook.com/blupixie Nikki Blaze

    source issues are just because cydia is overloaded, give it awhile and it should resolve itself – for those of you who only have 1 bar for signal just install ultrasn0w when cydia is working and make sure you RESET network settings, after that it will take a minute or two to respring then you should have full signal again!

  • Keving_mcroberts

    Everything works great other than Safari. It crashes as soon as it opens.

  • me

    no its full of bugs. i know what i am doing, ahve submitted 100s of patches and addons for cydia apps. the jb is causing a lot of problems. sources on cydia are failed, cydia itself rarely loads to full.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=33401628 Lorell Pascual

    Keving_mcroberts, you probably are still on a tethered jailbreak, make sure you installed Corona right. You have to use the latest redsn0w

  • cool dude

    same here , fixed jus reebot.

I have a iPhone 4 – 16 GB factory unlocked, and i dont care about the baseband though, so i tried snowbreeze latest, got it to homescreen, but cydia do not work, so any help please..

  • Dans

    Everything seemed to have worked on my iphone 4 (no I didn’t bother with semi-tethered or tethered – just regular 5.0.1). Except iBooks and numerous other owned apps now crash instead of loading. This includes simple things like AP Mobile, etc. Tons of problems. I’m going to try to restore when I get home, but I dunno how it’ll make a difference since I was not using any mods whatsoever before this anyway.

  • Jwmw16

    ok i jailbroke my iphone 4….none of the sources are working. it shows they are there but i cant download winterboard or any other app/theme that is in cydia. whats the deal with that?

  • asdd ass

    what happened to Personal Hotspot?

  • bsoucie

    Yes, only way to unlock would be via Gevey sim

  • bsoucie

    Figured out how to get Cydia to work. All you have to do is go to packages, click on cydia installer and reinstall it. Let it load all the way and then close Cydia. Reopen Cydia and you can install all of your packages

  • Keving_mcroberts

    I restored and started over, everything works like it should now.

    hey. how can i fix iphone 3gs, bb 5.12.01 because it says: No service. I have jailbroken with redsn0w beta 1 and installed ultrasn0w, and then rejailbroken with beta 2 when it came out. Can I re-jailbreak with beta 1 and then just install corona 1.0.3 from cydia to get my SIM card work ? Thx

  • Hotthought3

    I jail broke, seemed to work fine, but after I installed mywi I get no Internet service on phone through 3G. I restored and. Jail broke again. Same problem. Also apps like iBooks and kindle don’t work. Any thoughts? The mywi is fine tho. Main problem is no Internet access on phone.

  • Guest134

    whoever has problem with “No Service”, you have to upgrade Mobile Substrate in Cydia and reinstall ultrasn0w (I’m not sure this is necessary but it can’t hurt) and the problem is solved.

    hye, I have an Iphone 3G S and I updated to ios 5.0.1 and used the first jailbreak redsnow b1, the problem I have now, is that I don’t have any connection from my provider.. could this be caused by the fact that I upgraded my baseband? Because I have no connection at all. So I Wcan’t text, or call anyone. I can update to ios5 and jailbreak all I want and it works , but i never get any connection. PLEASE HELP, because if i can’t text or call anyone I’m basically stuck with an expensive ipod touch. PLEASE HELP ME, why don’t I have any connection with my network. I can’t even go on the internet, only when i’m at a wifi spot. What should I do??? And i know that there is a new redsnow but the new one fixes other bugs, nothing that has to do with connection problems. PLEASE HELP

    My iPhone 4 had iOS 4.0.1 with modem firmware 1.59. I just updated to iOS 5.0.1 using Pwnage, modem firmware preserved and cydia and ultrasnow installed through Pwnage. iPhone started OK, but had two issues. Signal strength appeared to be low (just 1 bar where 5 bars should have been, not sure if was just a cosmetic issue or the signal reception was low also) and iBook crashing.
    Everything else seemed to be working OK, haven’t tried the carrier unlock yet, but I expect ultrasnow will work it’s magic as it did with my previous iOS…

    Reinstalled ultrasnow and rebooted iPhone, signal strength issue resolved ! however iBook still crashes. Personally I don’t care much about iBook, but it would be nice to get it to work properly !!

    Any ideas ?

  • Sfdsd

    the wifi issues on ios 5 and 5.01 can be resolved

    it is because of lack of activating the imessage.
    Go to settings, then down to imassage, turn it of, and on again.
    then it will activate (it will ask you to log in to your itunes account), and the wifi problems will go away.
