Apple released iOS 5.0.1 firmware few weeks ago and the new updated iOS firmware brings a lot of bugs fixes, performance improvements, new feartures and apps and everyone wants to update his iDevice’s iOS firmware to the latest iOS 5.0.1 firmware. But the problem is the new iOS firmware will also update your iDevice baseband and eventually you will loose you unlock and jailbreak as well. For example by updating iPhone 4 firmware to the iOS 5.0 many users lost unlock and jailbrak due to 4.11.08 baseband update and up-till now there is no unlock solution available for this iPhone 4 4.11.08 baseband. So, the solution for this problem is you have to update your iDevice firmware by downloading iOS 5.0.1 custom firmware which will not update your iDevice baseband.
If you want to preserve you iDevice baseband to easy unlock and jailbreak then you have to restore your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to custom iOS 5.0.1 Firmware without baseband update. This iOS 5.0.1 custom firmware made with Sn0wbreeze v2.9.1, so its an untethered jailbreak. There is same ready custom firmwares with 6.15.00 basebond . While updating iOS firmware if you get iTunes 16XX error use iREB. The iOS 5.0.1 Custom Firmwares are Pre-jailbroken and you don’t need to jailbreak again.
