Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak is now available on both platforms; Windows and Mac with the help of Redsn0w 0.9.10b3 jailbreak tool released by iPhone dev team.The supported devices are iPhone 4 [GSM/CDMA],iPhone 3GS,iPod touch [4G/3G] and iPad 1.According to iPhone dev’s blog;
“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! 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”.
