Untethered A4 Jailbreak For IOS 5 Released

Here’s a holiday gift from pod2g to all:

A4 release

 Hello, as expected, the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on my work.

It is exactly the same set of files, either distributed as a Cydia package for those that are already tethered or a redsn0w bundle for new users. They both did a great job testing and integrating the payload. Here are the links to their respective blog posts :

iPhone Dev Team has revealed a clear step-by-step procedure for jailbreaking your A4 device:

A few days ago, @pod2g gave the untether to both the iPhone devteam and the chronic devteam.  We’ve put it into redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and the chronic devteam put it into a Cydia package (the same set of exploits is in all three).

Here are the basic steps for how to get it:

  • The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G
  • If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now!  The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1  If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW!  See the guides at places like iClarified.com if you don’t know how.  Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
  • If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam.  The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
  • Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration.  If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup!  You will most likely get into a reboot cycle.  Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.

That’s it, for non-A5 iDevices. If you followed the procedure religiously, the jailbreak has been reported in more than 1,000 comments as successful. A slightly different procedure for implementing pod2g  jailbreak can be found here. 200+ comments so far, plenty of happy campers among them.

Keep following us if you are waiting for A5 untethered jailbreak. It’s coming soon.

  1. What happens when pod2g gets hired by apple?

    • Alexander Udalov

      You may want to ask pod2g directly, I think he’ll be amused. Just use your best French you can master, to be sure he would answer you. As to what happens, I can easily tell you: nothing, as there will be always fine, talented hackers that can find and exploit any vulnerability they see in any OS they happen to look at.

  2. The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G

  3. will this work for ipad2 ios 5

    • Work on untethered jailbreak for A5 iDevices with iOS 5 goes on: 
      pod2g has made the solution available for non-A5 devices. That means iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are obviously left out on this one. Keep coming back though, even if ETA is not given, it could happen any day.
